Jrue Holiday currently leads the league with 1 82 steals per game This is the first year since Steals became a recorded stat that the leagues leader has averaged fewer than 2 steals game

This means that Jrue (or anybody else who wishes to catch him) needs to record at least 55 steals over the final 23 games (2.4 steals per game), or we will have experienced the first NBA season ever in which the steals leader sat at fewer than 2 steals per game. Indeed, the steals leader has only been below 2.2 steals/game 4 times in total, 3 of which have occurred in the past 5 seasons.
