#2 John Stockton
Gotta love the defense by Barkley here. The single greatest moment in Utah Jazz history.
Over an eighteen year career, John Stockton shot 13658 shots and made over half of them, .515 exactly. Read that sentence again. Over an eighteen year career, John Stockton shot 13658 shots and made over half of them, .515 exactly.
The only complaint that I, and many Jazz fans have, is that he didn't shoot the ball enough.
Stockton was a solid three point shooter at .384 %
The most memorable part of John Stockton's shooting or shot was his timing. He only averaged 13 points a game over his career but when those 13 points came was crucial. Obviously, no shot was more timely than the one pictured above.
Stockton scored when we needed a bucket.
Personally, I think the greatest shot in Stockton's arsenal, was the pull up three pointer. He did early in the shot clock, during semi fast breaks and sometimes during full on fast breaks. Those of you that saw it, know what I am talking about.
It was beautiful to watch...
Let Memosimoney take you home.
Side notes Stockton had one career triple double.
