John Houston Stockton was born March 26, 1962.

Stockton spent all of his 20 seasons with the Utah Jazz, teaming up with Karl Malone to provide some of the best years in franchise history.

Stockton owns the career NBA record for assists (15,806), assists per game (14.1) and steals (3,265). He leads Jason Kidd by more than 1,000 steals.

Stockton, though, never won an NBA championship. The Jazz made two NBA Finals in 1997 and 1998, but Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls won both.
