Payton is/was an awesome point guard and I think he's among the top 10 of all time (so far), but I still think Stockton made other players better while Gary led more by position/example/scoring. I think Stockton would have made Kemp DOMINANT (similar to Malone) if Kemp was willing to work like Malone was. GP couldn't even make Kemp dominant.
Well come on...

Almost every important PG gets the gets the ball each play...HE IS THE PG...

Payton hadn't even reached his prime offensively/Passing when Kemp quit...

Can't blame it on Payton...How would Stockton do if Kemp quit at like 1988 before anything big happens...

And Payton to Kemp combo was pretty good...

But like I said...There is a reason why he never finished Top 6 in MVP Voting (Payton once finished 3rd)...

Me, and other knew that Malone was the man in Utah...

Stockton Usually only gave it to Malone, no one else...Why? If Stockton was the no.1 guy, like Nash in Phoenix, everybody would have points, as Nash shhared the ball...But in Utah, Stockton to Malone...
