Doc Rivers: “I always use Utah as a great (example). Thank God Karl Malone and (John) Stockton didn’t listen to people, you know what I mean? They fell (in the playoffs), and kept trying and kept trying. And finally, late in their careers, they finally broke through to the Finals. They didn’t win it (all). But you know, that’s the pursuit. I just think it’s so easy to (say), ‘Hey, they should break up,’ from the outside. And I think that’s such an easy opinion.”
Sometime before the best season in franchise history, Utah Jazz owner Larry H. Miller asked one of his superstars for some fashion advice. What did John Stockton think about changing jerseys? “Nope,” the Hall of Fame point guard recalls saying. “I know my opinion. I didn’t want to change anything. The Yankees don’t change their logo. That was my attitude. So why do the Jazz have to change theirs? He took my advice and put it where it mattered, I guess.”
