Should Stockton coach?

            Jazz president Randy Rigby revealed on air last month that John Stockton had worked with guards Trey Burke and Alec Burks for a few days during the off-season. That might be news to Karl Malone…but good news.Screen Shot 2013-10-03 at 6.22.37 PM

            Malone said last week that just as he had worked with Jazz big men, Stockton should be utilized as much as possible with the guards.

            “I look at Deron Williams and say John Stockton had a big part in the way (Williams) developed when he was first drafted,” Malone said. “I don’t know why the Jazz haven’t reached out to John for Burke.”

            Looks as though the two hall of famers don’t talk every day on the phone.

            Still, Malone had nice things to say about his ex-teammate.

            “If it’s done the right way, John could help if Burke wasn’t ready. Things might not have been ready with Deron, if John hadn’t worked with him,” Malone said.

            He continued, “Have John working with Burke and we’d have us all back in the fold.”

    Stockton would be a great coach, I just don’t think he wants to do it. He’s probably good to work with the guards a little in the off-season like he has, but we will probably never see him as a head coach. Too bad for us.

    John is very private person and we don’t know anything about him. I am surprised he is doing some teaching in gaurd position. I just don’t know.
