David Stockton Destroyed the D-League

Anyone who has watched Gonzaga basketball over the years knows that David Stockton is more of a pass-first point guard. The son of the legendary Hall-of-Famer John Stockton, David got his first taste of NBA action on a 10-day contract with the Sacramento Kings. After totaling one point, two rebounds and an assist in seven minutes of action, the younger Stockton returned to the D-League and promptly destroyed the competition.

During his first game back he totaled 44 points, 10 assists, eight steals and seven rebounds. Did I mention he’s a little under six feet tall?

The second outing brought 37 points, 22 assists (no typo) and five rebounds.

In his third game back he poured in 35 points, nine dimes and eight boards.

If he keeps this up, he’s going to stick with an NBA team at some point. His overall stat-line for the trio of games? 38.7 points per game, 13.7 assists per game and 6.7 rebounds per game.  NBA guys generally put up inflated numbers in the D-League, but this is just ridiculous.

Who is the Greatest Number 12 in Sports History?

In honor of 12 day, who is the greatest athlete to wear number 12 on their jersey?

Is it John Stockton? Tom Brady? Maybe Terry Bradshaw?


Or you could go with the wild card in the Seahawks’ 12th man.
