The Answer and the Admiral: Top 50 Players in NBA History Part III

24. John Stockton

Stockton was the best point guard to ever play with the Utah Jazz as he had a total of 15,806 assists for his career, which is the most assists by any player in NBA history.

Stockton also holds the NBA record for most 1,000+ assist seasons on seven different occasions and he also holds the NBA record for best assist average in a season as he averaged 14.5 assist in the 1990-1991 season.

He was also part of the U.S. Dream Team, as he helped lead the United States Olympic team to two consecutive gold medal awards in 1992 and 1996. Even though he never won an NBA Championship with Utah, he is still considered one of the best contributors to the franchise.


23. Scottie Pippen

Pippen was considered to be the Robin to the Bull’s Batman (I think we all know who Batman is) during their championship dynasty in the 1990’s. “Robin” helped contribute with “Batman” to six NBA Championship titles from 1991-1993 & 1996-1998.

Pippen demonstrated his amazing defensive skills throughout his entire career as he received 10 NBA All-Defensive honors and 8 NBA All-Defensive First Team honors.

As a cherry on top, #33 was retired by Chicago Bulls in his honor for his remarkable play as he scored 18,940 points, dished 6,135 assists, and grabbed 2,307 steals for his career.
