Why vote for him?

This isn’t too hard to make a case for Stockton. He may not have been the flashiest player but he took his lunch pail and went to work every day. He hardly ever missed a game. If you are a fan of big moments, look no further than Stockton’s three in 1997 to send the Utah Jazz to their first NBA Finals!

While he didn’t win a title, he is considered one of the best point guards in NBA history. He was elite on offense and defense and his career steals and assists make him the definition of a traditional point guard. Look out Webster.

Vote for John if you are the fan of an ideal teammate. He’s like the guy you want on your kid’s Jr. Jazz team because you know they will actually pass your kid the ball and give them a chance to make a wide open shot.

15 Bojan “Big Shot” Bogdanovic

NBA Career Totals: 39.4% 3 PT, 6570 points, 689 assists, 1607 rebounds

NBA All-Rookie Second Team (2015)

Why vote for him?

Bojan has already become a cult hero in Utah with buzzer beater threes to win over Milwaukee and Houston, two of the best teams in the NBA. If nothing else, vote for Bojan because of these clutch shots. Move over Big Shot Bob! Big Shot Bojan is nearly perfect on the Horry scale!
