1. Damon Stoudamire, assists per game (8.8)

While he was traded during his third season with the Raptors, and Toronto didn’t do a ton of winning when he was in town, Damon Stoudamire was one of the best young point guards in the game during his prime.

Stoudamire only stood 5-10 and weighed 170 pounds on a good day, but his lightning-quick speed and ability to create off of the dribble helped him win Rookie of the Year and set himself up as a long-term building block…before he was traded to Portland. Regardless, he still holds tons of Raptors records.

Damon Stoudamire was an elite point guard for the Toronto Raptors.

Not only would a player like VanVleet have a tough task when it comes to taking down Stoudamire, but Lowry never even averaged 8.8 assists per game in a single season with Toronto. Breaking this record would require some ludicrous passing ability.

With the game trending towards both positionless basketball and isolation-heavy styles, it might be hard to pile up such gaudy assist numbers year in and yet out. Stoudamire has seen many of his old records fall, but this one might be difficult to top.
