Top 10 Best Players in Utah Jazz History
More NBA records than I can remember, definitely most by a Jazz player. What would Malone be without this guy's dimes?
He holds the NBA's record for most career assists (15,806) by a margin of more than 3,000, as well as the record for most career steals (3,265). He had five of the top six assists seasons in NBA history
Sure he's not the 2nd leading scorer in the NBA but he's awesome he never really got all the applause it all went straight to Karl Malone. Vote for John Stockton
He belongs at number one and Karl Malone deserves to be number 2
There's no power forward in the history of the Utah Jazz franchise that can't touch Karl Malone. NO NO NOBODY. His amazing awards and achievements are too long for this list and so are the seasons so I picked this one the 1990-91 season. It was also the first season that the NBA on NBC went on the air and viewers around the world got a chance to see what he can do. In that season he was named the first team NBA All-Star and scored 29 points a game and in one 19 game stretch led the team in scoring, great numbers.
Karl Malone is the best basketball player to ever wear a Utah Jazz jersey (all due respect to John Stockton who is an all time great in his own right). Malone is the only player in team history to win the NBA MVP and he did it twice (the second time he became the oldest player to ever win NBA MVP). He's the leading scorer in team history and the second leading scorer in NBA history. His list of accolades and accomplishments is long and I could sit here and list them all but I don't feel it's necessary. People can research them. I'll leave this simply, Karl Malone is the best player in team history. Not only that, he's a top 10 player in NBA history.
Deron came to the Utah Jazz in 2005 at the right time. Fellow legends Mark Eaton, John Stockton and Karl Malone have long since retired and Deron was built as a savior to the jazz franchise. He did not disappoint anyone. In his rookie season he scored 10.8 points per game. Deron was named to the NBA All-Rookie team. In his season number two he had five double-doubles in only 13 games, and as his game improved so did the Jazz who made a playoff appearance. Williams played in 3 straight All-Star Games.
The right player on the right team at the right time.
One of the best small forwards in NBA history!
Average over 20 Pts per game first 5 years with team! Jazz only Rookie of the Year! Griffith led NBA in 3 points shooting and before injuries was a NBA premiere Dunker. Was known as Dr. Dunkenstein for his dunking ability.
This man is a beast
Very underrated in his day because he was a quiet person. The man could shoot lights out.
