Default D-Will+ Boozer = Mailman + Stockton?

In your opinion, do you think D-Will and Boozer will ever be as great as 2nd all-time leading scorer Karl "Mailman" Malone and all-time leader in steals and assist John Stockton?

Default Re: D-Will+ Boozer = Mailman + Stockton?

people ask this question constantly, comparing two hall of fam basketball players to two players not even mid-way through their careers. D-WIll will flourish and may or may not end up being at the same level as Stockton was, same applies for Boozer. But no players could ever replace the legacy that was The mailman and Stockton

Deron is certainly at that level. Boozer never will be. He's limited physically.

Good Points
On a side note: Any nickname for Boozer or Stockton?

The D-Will/Stockton comparison is fair, but was on an entirely different level than Boozer. No matter how good of numbers Boozer ever puts up, he'll never deliver like the mailman.

Boozer on the other hand is one of those guys that just collects stats, he's not much of an impact player.

Even though he was the 2nd best player on his team.

I'd say he makes an impact and if he does it in the biggest games it would trump anything Karl did. You can blame refs and MJ all you want but Karl played the worst games of his life against the Bulls. He missed lay up after lay up. Choking would be one thing but instead of shouldering the blame like a man he tried to blame Ostertag.

being the 2nd best player on his team adds nothing to this discussion.

First of all, I don't know where you saw anything about refs.

Second, come talk to me when Boozer has equaled Malone's playoff production and/or made it to the finals. Malone is in the discussion of top 5 PF's of all time. Putting Boozer in a CURRENT top 5 PF list would be debatable.

Usually the first reason brought up as to why the Jazz lost to the Bulls.

Unlike Karl that's still possible.

Sure he is. Also in the discussion of biggest chokers and biggest mouths and biggest dirtbags of all-time.

No debate in my mind. He's not in the discussion.
