Bits from Randy Rigby Interview, 9/18
Is Trey Burke* working out with John Stockton?
I think Trey sent out a little tweet, and Alec [Burks] and Trey are both actually working with John. They were gonna try to go up last week, and things didn’t work out. One of ‘em had some health problems, some flu, and they were able to get up there this way, this week, and work with John.

Raul Neto’s father loves John Stockton
We have a great mural [at the Jazz's practice facility] that people can, as they walk by it, they go into the locker room. And it’s to really let our players continue to see those who have pla–those who have blazed a way before them, who allowing them to earn and do what they are now getting a chance to do.
And I know when Raul Neto’s father saw that picture, he just started having the shakes.
And he was a man from, of course, Brazil, but who had a, has a real love for the game of basketball.
And he said, “There’s my favorite one right there. One of the favorites of, ever, of all time, in basketball.” And he pointed to John Stockton. And he made sure that I took a picture of he and Raul standing next to that poster with, of John Stockton. (1280)
