Over the span of 19 seasons all in a Utah Jazz uniform, John Stockton was an assists and steals machine!
Not only does Stockton, commandingly hold the NBA record for career assists with 15,806 (10.5 per game), by 5,483 more career assists than Mark Jackson, who is second all-time. Stockton also holds the record for assists-per-game average over one season (14.5 in 1990), and is one of three players who have logged more than 1,000 assists in one season, joining Kevin Porter and Isiah Thomas in the exclusive list. Stockton did this seven times, with season totals of 1,164, 1,134, 1,128, 1,126, 1,118, 1,031 and 1,011 assists
Stockton also dominates the NBA steals record with 3,265 which is tops all-time in the NBA history books and nearly 30 percent more than second placed Michael Jordan, who has 2,514 [sic]. So you can call him a steals wizard too.
Being the short-short well oiled passing machine that he was, Stockton only missed 22 games during his career, 18 of them in one season. The man could play, and he had highlights other than pick and rolls plays to Karl Malone. Now sit back and watch the short shorts wizard from Gonzaga get retro wavy with it.
