Their scoring is pretty similar. Stockton put up higher assist number and was the much better defender. Besides, Nash was helped a lot by the rule change.

I would say they're pretty equal, with Stockton being great offensively with the better defense and Nash leading some of the best offenses the NBA has ever seen.
