    stockton gets a ton of respect in those discussions unless you're talking to idiots.

    but like, you're not calling him the best or second best right?

    John Stockton is the ultimate "system" star. Half the player Steve Nash was and Nash stole two MVPs.

    Stockton sucks a big dick. Owes his entire career to Malone and Sloan.

    Stockton sucks.

    Eat shit, John Stockton.

    He’s easily in my top five. Where he is in there I’m not sure. I’m biased though because I loved that Jazz squad with him, Malone, and Hornacek.

    Magic, Oscar, Jerry West, Steph are clear cut ahead of Stockton, Stockton goes #5 at best in a "top 5" list depending on how ppl rank him with Nash, CP3, Jason Kidd etc.

    I know scoring wasn't exactly what his job was but its like people forget Stockton averaged less than 14 points a game for his career or something.

    He averaged 15.6 and 12.8 during his peak, never averaging fewer than 15.7 assists per 100 possessions in his peak. He’s got five of the six best single season assist averages, 8 of the top 20.

    ESPN2 showing old McDonald's AA games

    2007 on right now with 2003 after. If they want me to tune into ESPN networks for non-live sports programming, this is the kind of stuff they should be showing

    had forgotten all about Nick Calathes. Love looks pretty hilarious compared to how he looks today. Pro athletes, man. John Wooden interviewed and talking about how he is glad he's going to UCLA

    damn just looked up Stockton's numbers and dude averaged 1.5 3-pt FG attempts per game for his entire career and shot like 38% on them

    yikes

    in hindsight he might not have been a very skilled basketball player and IMO might have been lucky to play in a really good system alongside Malone

    38% from three is pretty good, especially for the era (I think I have no idea what 90s 3pt %s we’re actually like on average)

    38.36% is good, it ranks 109th all-time, it’s a higher percentage than Durant, Kawhi, Beal, Dirk, Michael Redd, Paul George, Bird, Lillard, Vince Carter, Chris Paul, Manu, Pierce, Hayward, Lowry, and Harden.

    There wasn’t much three point shooting overall in the 90s. The team leaders in three point attempts from the 90-99 seasons
    • 90 - 10.4 attempts
    • 91 - 12.9
    • 92 - 12.4
    • 93 - 13.4
    • 94 - 15.7 - though the Rockets were an outlier, 2nd was 13.9
    • 95 - 21.4 - the NBA shortened the arc to only 22 feet starting this season and for the next two so attempts exploded before they lengthened it again after the 97 season
    • 96 - 24.9 - second was 21.5
    • 97 - 22.7
    • 98 - 20.4
    • 99 - 18.9
    The Sixers shot the fewest threes in the NBA this year at 28.9 a game.

    38% is good, in a era that welcomed 3 point shots he probably would have taken more and been over 40% which is excellent.

    The NBA is streaming on Twitch and Houston - Portland game 6 from 2014 is on right now.



    4th quarter is just starting... probably 15 minutes until Dame Time.

    These teams are funky. Houston has Chandler Parsons, Dwight Howard, Omar Asik, and a Harden that doesn't isolate. Portland has a useful Nic Batum, a pre-achilles Wes Matthews, Mo Williams, Robin Lopez, Lillard/Aldridge, and two strange minutes of Thomas Robinson where he played really well in the 4th quarter and it fueled everyone's hope for the following year.

    I think this was before Howard's injury in Houston because he's dominating in the 4th quarter. And I'm not someone who hates the current NBA, glorifies the 90s players, and thinks everyone now is soft. But the aesthetic of the games is definitely better in this game with a mix of PnR, motion, and post ups. I hadn't watched an old game in a while and I miss this mixed style. And there were 40+ 3s shot in this game combined so it's not like players didn't shoot them.

    Peak Portland era Batum was so good for a complimentary player.
