Former Jazz point guard John Stockton gave us a rare glimpse into his light-hearted side. One of the NBA's greatest passers, Stockton had no problem dishing out the jokes (what, you thought we could resist going there?) He began by thanking those that accompanied him at the ceremony, stating that he thought they probably came to see Michael Jordan. Regarding His Airness, Stockton said, "he makes one big shot, and everyone thinks he's so cool." He also made light of his big feet and short shorts - essentials for any ceremony honoring Stockton.
Stockton showed some very rare emotion, breaking into tears when thanking his father and his late mother. He also gave his regards to his wife and six children, all of whom attended the ceremony.
Seeing Robinson, Stockton, and Jordan being inducted into the Hall of Fame is making me feel old.
