Instagram photo by thisdayinhoopsMarch 26, 1962 - John Stockton was born in Spokane, Washington. Happy 55th Birthday John Stockton! Stockton appeared in 10 All-Star games, and was named co-MVP of the game in 1993 with Jazz teammate Karl Malone, which was held in Salt Lake City, Utah. He played with the 1992 and 1996 US Olympic basketball teams, the first Olympic squads to feature NBA players, keeping the game ball from both gold medal games. He was selected to the All-NBA First Team twice, the All-NBA Second Team six times, the All-NBA Third Team three times, and the NBA All-Defensive Second Team five times. He was named one of the 50 Greatest Players in NBA history in 1996. Stockton's career highlight came in Game 6 of the 1997 Western Conference Finals. Stockton scored the last 9 points for the Jazz, including a buzzer-beating 3-point shot over the Houston Rockets' Charles Barkley, to send the Jazz to the first of its two consecutive NBA Finals appearances. In both of these appearances, Stockton's Jazz teams were defeated by the Chicago Bulls. In Game 6 of the 1998 NBA Finals, Stockton made a three-pointer with 41.9 seconds left to give the Jazz an 86–83 lead, but Bulls guard Michael Jordan made two field goals to put his team ahead 87–86, the second one after stealing from Jazz forward Karl Malone. Stockton missed a three-point attempt with 5.2 seconds left and said in a post-game interview that he felt confident that the shot would go in. #JesusIsComing #JesusSaves #TeamJesus #JohnStockton #Gonzaga #UtahJazz #SLC #SaltLakeCity #NikeBasketball #KarlMalone #EnergySolutionsArena #GordonHayward #SneakerNews #SoleCollector #NiceKicks #Maranatha #116 #1962 #John316 #Faith #NBA #FIBA #BBALL #Basketball #ChristIsKing #EndTimes #WakeUp #YHWH #ReignIsComing #PraiseChrist
Instagram photo by thisdayinhoopsJanuary 24, 1957 - Mark Eaton was born in Westminster, California. Happy 60th Birthday Mark Eaton! Although he was not a significant offensive contributor, the Jazz relied heavily on Eaton for his shot-blocking, rebounding, and occasional "tippy toe" dunks. With the emergence of superstars Karl Malone and John Stockton, the Jazz became one of the best teams in the NBA. Eaton's stifling defense was a major factor in Utah's success. He continued to rank among NBA leaders in blocked shots, leading the league in 1986-87 and 1987-88. In 1988-89, he averaged 10.3 rebounds per game (seventh in the NBA) and 3.84 blocks per game (second behind Golden State's Manute Bol). He was named NBA Defensive Player of the Year for the second time in his career, and was also named to the NBA All-Defensive First Team (for the third time in his career). In addition, he was chosen to play in the 1989 NBA All-Star Game, joining teammates Malone and Stockton on the Western Conference team. In his last few years with the Jazz, Eaton was slowed by knee and back injuries. He remained an imposing defensive presence, but his rebounding and shot-blocking abilities slowly declined. In his last season (1992–93), he played in only 64 games, averaging just 17.3 minutes per game. #JesusIsComing #JesusSaves #TeamJesus #MarkEaton #UCLA #Jazz #UtahJazz #SLC #SaltLakeCity #EnergySolutionsArena #JohnStockton #KarlMalone #SneakerNews #NiceKicks #SoleCollector #Maranatha #116 #1957 #Romans116 #John316 #NBA #FIBA #Unashamed #EndTimes #GodIsGood #ChristIsKing #Faith #ReignIsComing #WakeUp #YHWH
