Utah Jazz To Retire Stockton's No. 12
Sept. 21, 2004
SALT LAKE CITY - The Utah Jazz will retire John Stockton's No. 12 in November, honoring the point guard who spent his entire 19-year career with the team.
Stockton, the NBA career leader in assists and steals, retired after the 2002-03 season.
"We are excited to honor John in this special way," Jazz owner Larry Miller said in a statement. "We look forward to hosting him and his family on Nov. 22. The evening will certainly be memorable."
Stockton will be honored during Utah's game against the New Orleans Hornets.
Stockton's No. 12 will be the sixth number retired by the Jazz, who have also honored former coach Frank Layden with the No. 1 and former players Pete Maravich (No. 7), Darrell Griffith (No. 35), Mark Eaton (No. 53) and Jeff Hornacek (No. 14).
During the 2003-04 college basketball season, Stockton's No. 12 was retired by Gonzaga University, 20-years after the former star played for the Bulldogs. Gonzaga John Stockton Jersey Retirement Story
