John Stockton played all of his 1,504 games with the Utah Jazz over the course of 19 years.

The Utah Jazz have been lucky enough to have some of the greatest and most unique guards in NBA history. 

Having great guards is the hallmark of great teams. Perhaps that is the reason that the Utah Jazz have only missed the playoffs 12 times since its creation in 1975, including the fact that the Jazz missed the playoffs for nine consecutive years dating back to their inception. 

Since 1984, Utah has only missed the playoffs three times, and having some of the guys on this list has definitely been a contributor to that excellence. 

Five of the seven players that have made this list have had their numbers retired by the Utah Jazz. Two of them received the honor of being named to the NBA's 50 Greatest Players in 1996. 

And one, well, one stands high above the rest.
