STOCKTON, POINT GUARD FOR ANY ERA
Wed, 09 Nov 2011 10:56 AM EST

John Stockton never possessed blinding speed, explosive or great jumping ability or a flashy style of basketball featured in today’s modern game. However, Stockton would fare quite ell against his current contemporaries at the point guard position. He would also be able to elevate his team today as well as he did in his era.

Why am I of confident about Stockton’s ability to match up with today’s players and game? John possessed a gritty and tenacious style of basketball that would stifle many of his weaker and finesse style opponents today. His physical defensive approach would limit the mobility of the current point guards that are not accustomed to aggressive defensive play.

On offense Stockton passing ability was unparalleled and only Bob Cousy, Magic and Oscar Robertson can be mentioned in the same breath as Stockton. His passing game was complimented by his ability to orchestrate and guide an offense like maestro leading a symphony.

Stockton to Malone was like Montana to Rice in passing effectiveness and productivity. Stockton perimeter game is far more superior than 90 percent of all the point guards and many of the shooting guards in the game today. His uncanny ability to penetrate to the basket and finish the play with either a basket, deft pass or fouled was pure poetry in motion. Fouling Stockton meant an automatic two points because he will go down in history as the greatest free throw shooter of all-time.

Stockton greatest gift was his team leadership ability. This is what is lacking in many of his contemporaries today. The point guard position is parallel to the quarterback position in football. The point guard controls the offensive scheme, directs the plays and monitors and controls the pace of the game. The pace and flow of the game is essential to winning basketball as it is in football. Stockton was a student and professor of basketball. He was always well prepared before a game and humble afterwards. Stockton today would be even more effective than he was when he teamed up with Malone to create one of the most consistent winning franchise in NBA history. Football lines

The primary attack against Stockton legacy has been that he never on a title. Well, many great athletes in many sports have this unfortunate stigma attached to them. Stockton and the Jazz played in the era of Magic then Michael and that was the only reason they were left as bridesmaids in the NBA finals. Stockton was the most fundamentally sound point guard since Cousy and can and would be an elite player in any generation or era. Football betting lines
