At age 27, Chris Paul is #5 in steals by this age; after Jordan, Isiah, Alvin Robertson, and Drexler.
Of course, this season is only about 30% complete. Through age 26, he's behind only Isiah and Jordan.

Through age 26, he was 4th in assists (regular season), after Isiah, Magic, and Marbury.
By age 27, he also trails Stockton. But this is a rough estimate, via basketball-reference.com. Whole seasons are assigned a certain age, depending on birthday. Thus, the order may vary.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's 2,000th blocked shot (1980-81)

Kareem didn't record a block until his 5th season, 1973-74.
In his first 4 seasons, he likely had at least 1000, unrecorded.

It was April 13, 1984 in a game against Mavericks, when he grabbed 11 rebounds. How do I know that date? It's quite simple :)
After 1983/84 season he had 15,005 rebounds in his career and in his last game of that season (that mentioned game against Mavs) he had 11 rebounds.

it is written it happened March 10, 1968.

Going by official numbers, Russell totaled 20,136 rebounds over his first 12 seasons. March 10, 1968 was the Celtics' 76th game of the season (the first to feature 82-game schedule) and as Russell didn't play in the final three regular season games that means during four games between Mar 10-13, 1968 his total must've exceeded 136 rebounds for an average of better than 34 boards per game. However, according to official NBA Guides, Russell's 1967-68 season high was only 33 rebounds.

But, it wouldn't be the first discrepancy regarding Russell's season/career rebounding mark...

You're absolutely right, petroslav. So what to do in such a case? Try to do research by itself. In 60's each week the Sporting News listed usually the top 20 NBA players in total points and the top 10 in FG%, FT%, Rebounds and Assists. Thanks to John Grasso, I know that thru March 3, 1968 Russell has 1279 reb and thru March 10, 1968 he had 1390 (in total 75 games then). Checking games reports of Celtics games from 3-10 March in various newspapers, guides, etc. and, voilà, here is it: Russell grabbed his 20,000th rebound in a game against New York Knicks, 6 March 1968 (he had 20 rebounds in that game). It was his 880th regular-season game in NBA career, of course second-fastest behind only Wilt.

What is interesting is that no newspaper mentioned this feat at any point during the regular season or at least I couldn't find any info about it (having in mind the discrepancy of 101 rebounds mentioned in another topic). Thanks for bringing the Sporting News weekly stats (I knew about other less detailed reports) to my attention, that could be helpful for filling in some gaps at nbastats.net, including Russell's game log. Feel free to join our crew if you are into research and have will/time to contribute.

Like LeBron in scoring, also Chris Paul in assists achieved the same distinction: he became the fourt-fastest player in NBA history to surpass 7000 assists' mark. Of course, this is also a reason of updating the first post in this thread.

Today I updated my first post with the list of fastest players to hit 6000 assist. When Chris Paul achieved that feat in 2013/14 season, there wasn't such a list available in Internet. Recently I made some research and using basketball-reference's game logs and NBA Media Guides (thanks John) I was able to create such a list. Interesting fact: it turned out that two players reached that milestone as the fastest: Magic and Stockton (552 games).

I also added the list of fastest NBA players (in terms of games) to reach 1500 steals. Chris Paul is fifth on that list (he hit that milestone in the beginning of last season).

Chris Paul recently has just reached the 8,000 assist plateau (and he did it as a fourth-fastest player ever), so I've updated the main list in the first post of this topic.
