My favorite part about Stockton's record is all the revisionists like CP and Bill Simmons that think it was the home scorekeepers and have made up some seriously incorrect ******** to throw shade. It isn't that hard... he was a pass first guy... never missed games... brought it every night. You rack up a **** ton of assists over the years. He probably should have shot the ball 4 or 5 times more per game but that wasn't how he lived. No one will break that record. Guys don't play that way or that long.

The insane part is he had years where it was basically double the production of most of the competing guys in one year.

Game 2, Clippers will double team trap Mitchell to get the ball out of his hands and make someone else beat them, hopefully the Jazz know this and will have a plan so our guys make them pay for that strategy.

Has the NBA awarded the DPOY award? Yesterday, they handed out the MVP award, which, IIRC, is the normally the last award given out. But I haven't seen or heard about the DPOY. Are they saving that award for a possible Jazz vs 76ers final?

We have destroyed blitzes all year. That would be a very bad idea.

Glad the Jazz finally started listening to my overreacting *** or they would have lost the game. Instead of loling, you should be on your knees thanking me.

You're welcome.
Just about the most childish way you could respond to your actions. That’d be true anywhere, but it’s probably pretty important how stupid it is on the internet. Grats, trollboi

All I can think is they had to do the MVP award yesterday to give it to Denver in a team setting before they scattered to the winds.

Yeah if he raises his game instead of being okay we have some titles for sure. In one of those years. We should have had 98... honestly some coaching adjustments would have won us that title. Hindsight is 20/20.

Agree with the coaching adjustments. We should have won in 97. Bulls were the better team in 97 but the Jazz outplayed them in the series, whereas in 98 the jazz were the better team but the bulls outplayed / outcoached them.

1997 - Malone choked in G1 with his missed free throws. Malone choked in G5 when he failed to box out Kukoc at the free throw line which led to the bulls hitting that go ahead 3 with a minute left. Right before Kerr hit the game winner in G6, the refs missed an obvious basket interference call by Pippen on Shandon Anderson's layup that would have put the jazz up by 2 with under a minute to go... very winnable series but Malone didn't rise to the challenge and a few unlucky coin tosses went the bulls' way.

1998 - Sloan just made some stupid decisions like giving Adam Keefe a lot of burn over the likes of Foster/Tag (at least Tag clogged the lane), and playing a one-legged Hornacek over Anderson/Morris when he was a complete liability on defense, or having whoever MJ guarded run endless actions in g6 when he was clearly gassed.. Jazz didn't take advantage of any of that.

And who can forget 5 point swing caused by Dick Bavetta. Under todays rules they would have reviewed Eisleys and Harpers shots and we would never had Jordan heroics at the end of the game. Granted we probably would have choked in game 7 but still that injustice in game 6 is just hard to ignore.
