Stockton’s record stands to this day as the most assists by a single player in one season. In fact, the top four seasons in terms of assists in a season all belong to Stockton. All 19 of Stockton’s NBA seasons were played for the Jazz, and he holds the NBA records for career assists and steals by a large margin.
