The Panathinaikos leader before the tip off in the Olympic Stadium for the 3rd day of the Euroleague (91-73), had 999 assists, and as everyone expected he wrote his name with "golden" letters in the history of European basketball.
The Panathinaikos guard since October 30, 2014 until today, and for a long time to come, is the only one who has surpassed 1000 assists in Euroleague.
Currently Diamantidis has reached the 1161(!) assists with Papaloukas in second place with 977, despite having retired from the game since 2013.
Vassilis Spanoulis is in third place with 859, while Teodosic (5th) and Navarro (7th) they have 783 and 711 respectively.
Obviously it will be very hard for anyone to "break" the record of the 35 year old guard.
Remember the Euroleague tribute:
