1962-

American basketball player

The NBA all-time leader in assists and steals, John Stockton loves to play basketball. Holding the record for most NBA games with the same team, the Utah Jazz, Stockton became one of the best shooting point guards and helped the Jazz to 19 straight play-off appearances. Eagle-eyed on the court, he holds the record for most assists in a single game, most assists in a single season, and most career assists with an unsurmountable 15,177. He played nine consecutive All-Star Games, and played on the US Olympic Dream Team which won gold in both the 1992 Barcelona Games and 1996 Atlanta Games. Stockton is one of a few members of the NBA to play into his forties, and he is known as a gentleman off the court.
