    I love how now theses guys give him respect now. Back then John had a hard time getting any respect from his peers.

    Your memory is failing you, or you're too young.

    Payton and others always respected Stock. They hated playing him, and would always try to step it up against him.

    Announcers and Media... don't know about that... but the players respected him.
    Gobert has a serious defensive gravity.

    John Stockton made me fall in love with basketball, nice to see him getting pats on the back from his rivals. Gary Payton was a fierce competitor.

    Eh. Maybe you are right. I just thought I remembered people down playing John's abilities, saying he was a product of Karl Malone. I specifically remember Mark Jackson saying he wasnt that good. Maybe it was a only a couple people. I was young back then when I watched him, so I may be over exaggerating it a little.

    Mark Jackson was always jealous of John Stockton.

    I never heard him say bad things about Stockton, but I do recall Jackson leading something of a revolt that year he was with the Jazz in which he was critical of what he thought was Stockton's and Jerry's conservative style, not throwing alley-oops for instance. I remember Jackson wanted to open up things more and threw a few to AK who could really get up in those days when he was young. Actually, Jackson was one of the best ever at throwing the alley-oop. Now you see it all the time.

    Payton says that, if inducted to the Hall of Fame, he would choose John Stockton and George Gervin as presenters.
    Yeah, I remember him saying that Stockton was the only guy (at least at the time, it was after Magic and Zeke were retired) that he never talked smack too on the court. Him shutting his mouth up is hard to believe (on the other hand he's one of my favorite non Jazz players of all time, even though I hated when the Jazz played the Sonics back in the day).

    Mark Jackson said The Jazz were doing a bad job of opening things up and developing their young players.

    I think I've heard that once or twice before - not sure where.

    Payton And C-Web combo was entertaining on NBA TV. I think Payton was a mocker and hyperactive than that they can handle and a little lack of knowledge about what happening around the NBA unlike McHale who is a workaholic. So they fired him and hired McHale. But for me it won`t change the fact that it was one of the best studio shows ever..
