At The beginning of the games life Stockton was amazing. The steals he got were game changing and his stats and badges were enough to make one of the best players in the game.. but things change.
Bought for: 150 Tokens
Badges - the best parts about this card come from his badges. HOF dimes and hof defensive stopper among other things make this card a beast
- stats - his attributes are great. Every thing you would expect to be great in, he is. He’s quick, can defend, pass and shoot
ball security - I don’t understand why... but his ball security sucks. His ball control is high but he dribbles the ball off his foot so much its sickening. It’s amazing how one of the best point guards & floor generals of all-time is one of the worst ball handlers is the game
- size - with people like magic Johnson and Giannis at the 1 defensively Stockton can be be overmatched at times. Also due to his size he can very difficult to use as a scorer around the rim
-open shots - his jumpshot is a little funky so he misses a lot of open shots. He also misses a lot of open shots that you would expect him to make. Kind of similar to kirolinko.
Recommended Strategy: catch and shoot, pnr, floaters
Use if: you want a pest on defense and a good playmaker on offense
Don't use if: you will compete against great sizable defenders (I.e. giassis, Iggy, pippem, magic, etc..)
Bottom Line: at the beginning he was great but as the game goes on, he becomes harder and harder to play.
