John Stocktonís father dies at age 89


SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) ó The father of Hall of Famer John Stockton has died. He was 89.

John H. ďJackĒ Stockton died Saturday in Spokane.

Jack Stockton was the co-founder of Jack and Danís tavern, which has received national attention in recent years as a gathering place for fans of Gonzaga basketball. He sold his share of the bar, located across the street from the Gonzaga campus, in 2006.

The Spokesman-Review reports that the bar was also a gathering place for Utah Jazz fans during John Stocktonís playing days.

The Jazz tweeted condolences to Stocktonís family:

Really? Did you experience somethin with Johnny? Pray tell.

I thought Stock's HOF speech was one of the best I've ever heard, especially next to Mike's trumpy speech. Salt of the earth, just like his playing days. Interestingly, brash so-called "hood" dudes like GP and AI love JS (PC explanation: "hood" by their own actions, claims, dress, and personalities, not my claims -- GP often cites that he's "from Oakland", which means Oakland as a hood, not Oakland as a city; he cites that as a badge of honor and/or a battle scar, but I digress...). I think they like Stock because he's the polar opposite of their styles. Steady, doesn't talk back, uses the word "holler", tough/rugged, bordering on dirty, does what he has to do, highly smart as a passer which PG types respect as a skill that defines their position.

Stock was a great player, but let's just say on a personal level, the words uptight dick might work well together...
