John Stockton Says Giannis is His Current Player Comparison
John Stockton is featured heavily in the last few episodes of The Last Dance. Stockton led the Utah Jazz to back-to-back NBA Finals appearances. They could not take down the Michael Jordan-led Bulls teams though. Before the last two episodes of The Last Dance, NBA.com did something fun and brought back Inside Stuff with all the top players from the 1990s. Stockton and his teammate Karl Malone both were on the Zoom call. They asked Stockton to compare a player to his game today and he joked ‘Giannis.’ I love this in many different ways.
The NBA Inside Stuff Zoomunion of 90s stars is hilarious. Ahmad asked players if anyone today reminded them of themselves. He got no after no until John Stockton said: “Giannis”

Stockton is joking, we all know that. But Stockton may seem some of his game come out with the Greek Freak. It is not the dunking ability, that’s for sure. But perhaps what he does from a passing perspective or his ability to frustrate defenders on the ball. It is not absurd to think some parts of Stockton’s game could match up with Giannis.
Now, we need to see if Giannis can rival Stockton’s patented short shorts look.
