John Stockton is a tough act to follow. Not just because of his stats and durability, but because he understood that he was simply one piece of a larger puzzle.
John never once complained who the Jazz organization put on the floor with him or what plays were called.
He understood that it was his job to take whatever players were hired to play and go out there and try his best to win a championship.
He did just that, and along the way took a team with Greg Ostertag and Brian Russel in the starting line-up to two NBA finals.
John knew he was paid well, had the support of the community, and that it was his job to play basketball and Jerry's job to coach the team.
After twenty years of effort and loyalty, Jazz fans built John a statue.
In Utah, they don't build statues for whiners.
