If there’s anything mysterious or remotely controversial, it would be Stockton’s description of "a stubborn undertow of friction" during his final season of 2002-03, when his teammates — not named — included Carlos Arroyo, Mark Jackson and DeShawn Stevenson. In Friday’s news conference, Stockton said that subject was worth discussing mainly because of how he chose not to address it at the time, which played into his decision to retire at age 41.

In turn, he angered his wife and Malone by making his brief announcement the day after a first-round playoff series against Sacramento, rather than telling them first.

Some sort of Christian clique they had from what I've heard before. Too bad they didn't get rid of them and he'd continued to play.

As for coaching in the league, Stockton said he's open to the idea and has had discussions with the Jazz organization, but nothing formal has ever been introduced.

"We've had a discussion or two, and we did right before I retired," Stockton said. "Larry (Miller) and I talked about the prospects of one day me becoming a coach, and I guess we agreed on the decision not to. An actual offer and a denial hasn't happened yet."

John Stockton’s new autobiography "Assisted" discusses a shift in team culture, a negative undercurrent in the Jazz locker room his last year in the league.

The book doesn’t name names, but a prominent thought has been that there were some issues with backup point guard Mark Jackson. In a 2003 Sports Illustrated story, Ian Thomsen reported, citing anonymous sources, "that over a period of weeks, [Jackson] succeeded in turning several teammates against Stockton by repeatedly remarking that those players would be better off if Jackson were the Jazz’s floor leader."

Asked Wednesday night if there were problems in the locker room that year, Jackson, now the coach of the Warriors, simply said, "No."

He called Stockton an all-time great and a winner.

I liked him the year he was with the Jazz but they were certainly better with John.
