J-Stock 'round da clock.

Is it for visual purposes you write out all of the years instead of " - " or are you masochistic?

Re: Best Player to Wear #12?

I thought this would be a lot closer than it is. You could make an argument for Yardley, although Stockton bests him in longevity. But give me Dwight Howard. The only things missing from his resume are a title and an MVP, and it's not like Stockton or Yardley have either.

Re: Best Player to Wear #12?

Howard at his best is better than Stockton was at his, but I would say Howard needs 2-3 more dominant years (this year has not been one) before I give him the nod.

Stockton hands down for me. The guy is the 2nd best point guard all time. The guy body slammed The Admiral for gods sake!

Re: Best Player to Wear #12?

I voted Stockton, but I would've voted Howard if I saw the results first. It shouldn't be lopsided.

Re: Best Player to Wear #12?

Howard has a lot to do before he is in the conversation.

Stockton is one of the greatest PGs of All-Time.

Re: Best Player to Wear #12?

It depends on how you compare the two. Stockton had the better career, but was always second fiddle. Howard proved he's a dominant franchise player for 8 or 9 years.

I was debating Vlade more than Dwight. But went with Stockton.
