Number 3- Andrei Kirilenko
Andrei Kirilenko is what you call the Swiss Army of the NBA. He literally did everything on the court, including the small things. He could do offense just as well as he could do defense. With a 7’4 Wingspan and a height of 6’9, this man actually demolished people if they tried to shoot over him. For his career he averaged nearly 2 blocks a game. While doing all that he also got 1.4 steals per game, this guy was a lockdown defender. On offense is more of the same too. He averaged about 11 points, 3 assists, and 5 rebounds a game for his career. He has multiple stat lines of ridiculous. He is one of the few players that was so close to a quadruple double, which is 10 or more in all stat lines points, rebounds, assists, steals, and blocks. He was an animal.
Number 2- Donovan Mitchell
The new face of this modern day Jazz team Donovan Mitchell has rocked the world with his stellar plays and surprising showing in his rookie season and much of the same his sophomore year. With his scoring average going beyond 20 points in both of his seasons, he is a powerhouse on offense especially in the pick and roll. He is in the top 5 in most scores off the pick and he gets almost 4 assists at the average of 3.9. He has some hops and handles too. He is an amazing player to watch, I’d recommend it!
Number 1 – Karl Malone
Number two all time in scoring. All time leader in rebounds for jazz. He is one of the all time greatest players of all time in my opinion. Although a title never came his way, he did get to the finals twice in his career. His scoring average for his career with the Jazz is 25 a game. He was nominated as an All Star 14 times, and he won 2 mvps in his career. One of the rare things about Karl’s career is that he almost never got hurt. There was only one season where he didn’t play 80 games.
I know, Stockton is better then Kirilenko, I just have biased for Andrei because I met him in person and he is one of the nicest guys I met. This is my list of my top 3 favorite players.
