Top 10 Best Players in Utah Jazz History

The Top Ten
1 John Stockton John Houston Stockton is an American retired professional basketball player. He spent his entire professional playing career as a point guard for the Utah Jazz of the National Basketball Association, from 1984 to 2003. Stockton is regarded as one of the best point guards of all time, holding the NBA... read more

More NBA records than I can remember, definitely the 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 is not the second leading scorer in the NBA, but he is awesome. He never really got all the applause. It all went straight to Karl Malone. Vote for John Stockton.

He was the one who made the winning shot and got us into the finals for the first time.

2 Karl Malone Karl Anthony Malone is an American retired professional basketball player. Nicknamed "The MailMan", Malone played the power forward position and spent his first 18 seasons in the National Basketball Association with the Utah Jazz and formed a formidable duo with his teammate John Stockton.

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 is 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 do not feel it is necessary. People can research them. I will leave this simply: Karl Malone is the best player in team history. Not only that, he is a top-10 player in NBA history.

3 Pete Maravich Peter Press Maravich, known by his nickname Pistol Pete, was an American professional basketball player.
4 Deron Williams Deron Michael Williams is an American professional basketball player for the Dallas Mavericks of the National Basketball Association.

Deron came to the Utah Jazz in 2005 at the right time. Fellow legends Mark Eaton, John Stockton, and Karl Malone had 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 second season, 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 three straight All-Star Games.

7 Antoine Carr
8 Adrian Dantley

The right player on the right team at the right time.

One of the best small forwards in NBA history.

He won Defensive Player of the Year multiple times and is my personal favorite player.

14 Darrell Griffith

Averaged over 20 points per game the first five years with the team! Jazz's only Rookie of the Year! Griffith led the NBA in three-point shooting, and before injuries, he was an NBA premier dunker. He was known as Dr. Dunkenstein for his dunking ability.

15 Jeff Malone

Very underrated in his day because he was a quiet person. The man could shoot lights out.
