Numbers do talk, but they can also mislead. I’m not trying to slander Stockton
He’s definitely an all-timer. I just don’t think we’ve seen a pg who had such complete command of the offense like CP3. He’s almost literally a perfect pick and roll pg. He has no weaknesses.
Now maybe Stockton could have elevated his scoring ability if he needed to, but that’s not something we really saw. So it kinda sucks to penalize Stockton for playing his whole career with Malone, but I kinda do. Stockton was never really the best player on his own team. Chris Paul has been the best player on his team every year except the 2 he spent in Houston.
