Some play a position exquisitely. That would be John Stockton at point guard. Perhaps the best passer in NBA history, he left the game holding a mass of assists records, including the career mark (15,806). As Stockton giveth, he taketh away: He led the league in steals twice and retired as the all-time leader with 3,265. And as a testament to his durablity, his team made the playoffs in each of his 19 seasons and he played in all 82 games for 17 of those seasons.
