Default Short shorts suck.. But, man that Stockton guy was good.

I know there are a lot of Stockton haters out there but you can argue with these stats.

- He averaged a career double-double, with 13.1 points and 10.5 assists per game.
- NBA's records for career assists (15,806) and career steals (3,265) and1,000+ assist season seven times.
-He played 1,504 of 1,526 possible games in his 19-season career and never missed a playoff game.

In addition to his remarkable numbers John Stockton was able to keep a very low profile in the NBA and avoided endorsements.
I have never heard John Stockton make a negative comment in my life and he was always respectful to the other teams, players, and coaches.

Only sad mark on his NBA resume is that fact they lost to the Bulls both times they were able to make it to the NBA finals (who could win 5vs8?).
