    Gary Payton, John Stockton

    There exist books on most every subject written from most every angle imaginable. There are do-it-yourself guides to construct your vessel to the afterlife. There is a definitive handbook on colloquial speech on the high seas. There are memoirs filled with irredeemable drivel, helpful travel guides written in anapestic tetrameter, and dizzying, sprawling novels drowned…

    In the slim chance that you hadn’t heard, Jordan Crawford, per Michael Lee of the Washington Post, said one of those things NBA players just aren’t supposed to say: “I don’t tell nobody, but I feel like I can be better than Michael Jordan,” Crawford said, without the slightest hint of sarcasm. “When I’m done…

    Has there ever been a more perfect pairing in NBA history than John Stockton and Karl Malone? Two very different styles of game, but two guys with great basketball IQs who knew how to play off one another. Guys that were the heart of a franchise, guys that got a city not every player loves…

  6. Is Chris Paul becoming more John Stockton than Isiah Thomas?

    The Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    Chris Paul insists he’s healthy. He says his knee isn’t bothering him. But if you watched him in December and you watched him in March, you’re going to have a hard time buying it. The question is — will Paul ever be right? I mean right like he was three seasons ago? Maybe it doesn’t…

  7. Rajon Rondo’s rare feat: averaging more assists than points

    Dec 5, 2010, 1:30 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo

    Rajon Rondo sat out today against the New Jersey Nets, his hamstring still sore and the team wanting to play it safe. Why safe? Because Rondo is having a historic season. So far, Rondo is averaging 14.1 assists and 11.4 points per game, orchestrating a more balanced Celtics attack. In a great note at the…

    Rajon Rondo, assist machine. So far this season, Rondo is assisting on about 60 percent of his team’s baskets when he is on the floor (his assist rate). He has racked up more assists through the first five games of the season than any player in history has done in that same stretch. More than…

    Big men have played until they turned 40 in the NBA — Shaquille O’Neal wants to do it now, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Robert Parish have done it among a number of others. With guards, that’s much harder. Michael Jordan played until he was 39 and you notice that Washington Wizards Jordan didn’t end up in…

  10. Don't forget, Karl Malone and John Stockton were good. Very good.

    Aug 10, 2010, 8:04 AM EDT

    Friday night Karl Malone gets inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame. Twice, actually. Once as a member of the 1992 Dream Team. But the other was for the role he was better known for, as one half of the best inside/outside, pick-and-roll duos ever. Malone and John Stockton were amazing together. The video is…
