One of my favorite players of all time. It seems like he has completely vanished off the face of the earth. I figured a guy like that would be into coaching, or working in a front office. Maybe he prefers to slip into anonymity after being a public figure for so long........who knows.
I just loved his game. Some say he played dirty. He probably did, to a certain extent, but he wouldn't have survived in the league otherwise. Rarely got hurt, never complained, and was extremely consistent.
Gonzaga Prep guard David Stockton is the son of NBA Hall of Famer John Stockton, who also attended Gonzaga Prep before going to Gonzaga University. And though at 5 feet 11, David Stockton's a little shorter than his dad, he also plays point guard.
On Saturday, he scored 22 points in their fourth-place win against Inglemoor.
"That was definitely his best game of the state tournament," Haugen said.
Stockton was also the quarterback for the Gonzaga Prep football team, which went 7-2 this season and just missed the state playoffs.
I miss his style of play in the league. He has my utmost respect as a person and a player.
I liked watching him play too. Yeah his shorts were about a foot too high and he was dirty and all, but I loved watching him execute plays. He wasn't the fastest, but he knew when and where the opening would be and was good at getting to the basket. He threw the pass at the right time so his teammate could catch it and have the the best angle to shoot.
Too bad he never won a ring, he deserved one. Damn Jordan, that dream shatterer.
Even though Stockton's steals and assists records probably will stand for a long time or even ever, I've never seen any PG control the game as much as he could. He controlled the tempo of the game and was incredible at making plays. A lot of Dwill and CP3 homers on this board are probably too young to remember how great Stock was.
I bet these two get together all the time, in Phoenix where Jeff lives, head down to the local YMCA, with haircuts like these, and then proceed to slaughter a bunch of 18-year olds who've never heard of them 2-on-2.
