Last game against the Dallas Mavericks, Rajon Rondo recorded his 4,000th career assist. His first career assist was on a Ryan Gomes jumper. His 4,000 was a beauty to Kris Humphries. Here is the list of Boston Celtics legends Rondo joined with his individual milestone:

  1. Bob Cousy (6,945)
  2. John Havliceck (6,114)
  3. Larry Bird (5,695)
  4. Paul Pierce (4,305)
  5. Bill Russell (4,100)
  6. Rajon Rondo (4,000)

That's pretty good company for Rondo. He will probably pass Russell by the end of this season and will be in striking distance of The Truth.
"It’s definitely an honor, especially to have so many [great players in] this organization," said Rondo. "But for the most part, goals like that come across you when you try to work hard and do what’s best for the team."
