....the Brevetta hose had nothing to do with fouls, push offs, or slips! He disallowed our 3 pointer that beat the clock....and counted a 3 pointer that clearly did not beat the clock! 6 point swing, bubba! Hard to beat that AND Jordan!Look at his stats for post season and regular season. There should have been no way that Stockton/Malone shouldn't have done more in the post season. Their numbers dropped dramatically.
If you are mad that they didn't call the "jordan push" a foul, then you have to call a foul on Karl Malone holding Barkley back on "the shot". They don't call a lot of those fouls in the final seconds of games.
Also, Sloan's substitution patterns hurt us in that game against the Bulls. You should have seen his 3rd quarter lineup.
It is only put under a microscope by Jazz fans because of implications, but you don't call a foul there because B-Russ slipped and the nudge wasn't enough to make him slip that much. yeah, the Jazz probably would have won a game 7 in Utah. But it shouldn't have come down to that.
EDIT: Also, Jazz STILL had a chance to tie/win and Malone lost the ball. As much his fault as it is Jordan's "shot".
Didn't like the way he'd chew that gum out of the side of his mouth, smirky smile....and then say something semi-unprofessional. I'll bet dollars to donuts that in a pickup game, he'd choose all his homies before he'd even consider taking Stockton!
interesting thread. racialism noted.
I also respect John Stockton.

Alright, I got love for the guy now.
He should have respect for Stockton. EVERY player should past or present. Stockton is a legend. I respect Payton for his comments on Stock. Everyone should respect what he brought to basketball. His Assist's totals record is almost unbeatable. And no one ran the floor like Stockton, no one ever will. He is arguably the best point guard to pl ay in NBA history. I have followed the Jazz since the late 80's. I am yet to see a point guard facilitate the ball the way he did.
Have faith that one day, Greg Miller will start to do something he's never done. "Care".
I would agree. But I think it would be better to class a few types of pgs to measure them. e.g. there are stockton type of pg's, new age d-rose type of pg's then again, pgs who have great fundemental but forward height so they are really convertible in the rotation. Stockton is the best of his kind I have seen too.He should have respect for Stockton. EVERY player should past or present. Stockton is a legend. I respect Payton for his comments on Stock.

Awesome memories of Stockton/ Payton matchups. Worth the price of admissions, plus some. Both amazing PGs, lots of mutual respect, worked their arses off every play, thrived on the competition on both ends. A matchup for the ages. Payton had amazing athleticism and IQ. I have no doubt that if Payton got in HOF first, Stock would have asked him to present, not Isaih.
I remember when I was a kid Gary came to Moscow and destroyed the Vandals like they were 5 year old girls. It was the most dominating athletic performance I have ever personally seen.
Gary had one of the sweetest floaters of all time. He truly was one of the greats.

When I'm bored I like to visit other basketball team sites and see what they have to say about the Jazz. Came across this earlier today and thought it was an interesting read. Some thoughts on Stockton from Celtics fans...
