SALT LAKE CITY — He's one of the greatest point guards to ever play the game.

Former Utah Jazz Hall of Famer John Stockton still holds two major NBA records. Stockton and fellow Hall of Famer Karl Malone were the best duo in Utah Jazz history.

"You could not have a Karl Malone without a John Stockton," Malone said.

It's been 20 years since Stockton retired, and he recently shared some of his favorite memories, like the shot in Houston. He also discussed the COVID-19 shot and why he spoke out in opposition. Watch now to hear how life has been for the former Jazz guard and what his time in Utah meant to him and the friendships he gained over his career.
