Ranking Top 10 Point Guards in NBA History
#8 John Stockton
Stockton is the NBA’s all-time assists and steals leader, so it’s understandable if some think he should be placed higher on this list. Not winning a title or capturing a league MVP probably hurts his ranking a tad, but that doesn’t take away from just how special he was throughout his storied professional career. Stockton led the NBA in assists nine straight times from 1988-1996, and the 16th overall pick in the 1984 draft appeared in all 82 regular season games in 16 of his 19 seasons. He was co-MVP with teammate Karl Malone in the 1993 All-Star Game, and the Spokane, Wash. native played in back-to-back NBA Finals later that decade.
