Thompson was the most impressive college player (non-center category) I ever watched play. His abilities were off the charts great.

I'll ditto that.  His fall against Pittsburgh in the NCAA Tourney when he was trying to block a shot (being Thompson it was like he fell from 3 flights up) was one of the worst things I've seen on a court.  I was sure he was dead.

8 players have scored 10,000 points and dished 2,500 assists in their first NBA six seasons.  One just accomplished this yesterday.

Who are those 8?

You got the 3 easiest ones. 
There's one more easy one.
Lillard is the guy who did it the other day
Then there are 3 from the 60/70's which are interesting and hard to get.  Which is why I liked this particular question.

I can give out some hints.

Yes to Bird, Bing and Tiny.  But not West.
Good job.
I never would have guessed Bing.
Don't think I ever saw him play.
Archibald makes sense, but I wouldn't have gotten him either.

There's one more 70's guy -- known for scoring and passing, which is what this Q is all about.

Just looked up West.
He had 2,285 Assists his first 6 years.
Interestingly he was more of a rebounder than assist man his first 6 years.  Then the last 8 years flipped that and was a bigtime assist man.

First 5 years, West averaged less than 6 assist per game every year.
Next 9 years he averaged over 6 assists every year.  With his 3 highest years being his late career from age 32-34, when he averaged over 9 assists per during that span.

And for rebounds, West averaged over 6 rebounds per his first 6 seasons, and then under 6 his next 8.
I assume that had to do with team needs/composition.
Before my time.

Didn't he play more 1 towards the end of his career than early on?

Taking a WAG-I'd say that adding Wilt as a teammate in the late 60s and a threat in the low-post added to West's assists, and having a vacuum cleaner off the boards lessened available rebounds for others.

Did Cousy score that much?  Nah, likely not.
