Stockton was the prototypical point guard. Everything he did was by the book, except for when he played defense. Although he was hardly caught red-handed, he was known to be one of the dirtiest players of his day. He would claw, kick, and nag his opponent relentlessly. But that will to win by all means is what made him the all-time leader in steals and assists.

Which leads us into his offensive game. "Stockton to Malone" is a household phrase. Those two picked and rolled their way into the history books. They led the Jazz to 19 straight playoff appearances and two trips to the Finals.
