Re: Stockton, B Hansen, P Manning, R Kelley 1985 jacuzzi
Payton feels he was better than Stockton, but he concedes that the former Utah Jazz guard had a remarkable basketball IQ.
"I really think I was better as an athlete and in everything all-around," Payton said. "But he was just a smarter basketball player than us. He just got it done. I do think I was a better basketball player. I can do more things skills-wise. He just showed he knew how to play the game and that was the biggest difference."
