Stockton-to-Malone Week: Top 10 Plays
Days from now, Karl Malone will join John Stockton and Jerry Sloan in the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame. Let’s fete and honor the greatest duo in NBA history with Stockton-to-Malone Week. S2M Week is brought to you by my digital pack ratting, est. circa 1995.

3) The Pass. Naturally. (#2)
4) The Shot. It’s not the Greg Gumbel version that we usually hear, however (“Yes! John Stockton sends the Utah Jazz to the NBA Finals!” aka my SMS alert tone). It’s Hot Rod, and he’s so emotional that his voice is breaking all over the place. It’s great. (#1)
