NBA Hall of Famer Magic Johnson took to Twitter to congratulate Phoenix Suns point guard Chris Paul for surpassing him in the all-time assist list.

“Congratulations to @CP3 for passing me & becoming the number 5 all-time assist leader!!” Johnson tweeted.

“I’m so happy for him! He’s become such an astute businessman & I love his commercials with his kids. A great husband & father, I wish you nothing but success in your life. God bless you!”

Paul moved past Magic after dishing out 13 dimes in the Suns’ victory over Milwaukee Bucks.

The “Point God” thanked Magic for “setting the bar”.
