    Stockton played a long-ass time too, and was damn durable, so that definitely also was a reason why his stats are crazy. His total steal numbers are high as well. Plus, having Malone as a roll man was probably--well, definitely--the best thing to happen to his career.

    But you know what the Jazz didn't do? Win two goddamn championships. Or one, even. So one Hakeem is probably worth more than the tandem of Stockton/Malone (Stalone)?

    All these hater complaining he’s stat padding clearly didn’t watch the Thunder game. We blew a 22 pt half time lead in less than a quarter.

    Or the Nets game when Dinwiddie went Tmac on us.

    Or the last time we played Mavs and Luka went unconscious.

    If I’m Dantoni I’m leaving him in also.

    Most importantly we are ties with Portland now. We are not catching the top 3 so we MUST get the 4th seed

    It's good seeing James Harden's son Luka Doncic succeed in the NBA after Steph Curry's kid Patrick Mahomes won NFL MVP.

    How ironic that the best rookie season in more than a decade is patterning his game after harden?

    All these guys trying to be Lebron or Kobe need to see that true skills and IQ gets you further then trying to be some super athlete.

    Unless your shooting like curry you should watch harden and only harden if you want to succeed and be a true franchise guy.

    There’s a reason why Luka has that bum Dallas team on pace for 35+ wins.

    Jason Kidd played the exact same number of years as Stockton did he's still under him by 3000 assists! Thats like getting 36 assists a game for an entire season difference.

    I call BS on that record Utah Jazzholes definitely inflated his stats. Same thing with steals, those Jazz fans probably gave him a steal every time the opponent had a turnover.

    Luka isn't the only one watching Harden's tape, pretty sure Angelo Russell is also watching Harden replays on league pass.

    Would it be an interesting wrinkle at the end of the game, for Harden to set the pick for EGO or CP3. Harden is built like a tank and could set a solid pick. Plus gives a different look of instead of a roller, it could become a pick and pop with Harden getting an assisted open 3 that he didn't have to work as hard to create.

    I wouldn’t call him trash but very over rated. I don’t get what all the hype is about. And anyone watch the game and notice how annoying those commentators were pumping luka up everytime he touched the ball? My opinion after watching him is the guy is a poor defender, poor FT shooter, above average offense but nothing that knocked my socks off. He’s a decent player as of now with a high ceiling. If he gets his D down, FT and work on offense game he will be great.
