I was doing a little statistical research for a top-ten point guard list I was putting together for my blog, and I realized something. This season marked the 6th time Chris Paul has led the league in steals! Not only is six the most EVER, it is DOUBLE the most ever! And four straight seasons is the longest streak ever (Iverson's three straight was the record before).
Michaell Ray Richardson did it three times.
Jordan did it three times.
Iverson did it three times.
Alvin Robertson did it three times.
Chris Paul has done it SIX times and four times in a row!
I think we need to take a second to appreciate how amazing this accomplishment is. Chris Paul, by the age of 26 broke this record, and now, at the young age of 28, is put this way for a long time and may very well add a couple more seasons to this.
