Stockton has no business being ahead of Thomas.

I think Steve Nash is definitely a top 5 PG of all-time, but looking at that list, you've got it pretty correct.

it helps when you have a career that's longer than the other's, which works to Stockton's benefit.

Stockton could never turn it up when it mattered most as well, Thomas could. Best example, Thomas playing on a bad leg and still scoring 25 points. Thomas also changed his playing style to benefit his team.

Stockton's good, but he's nowhere near Isiah, never will be.

I started watching the game in 1996. My top 5 list since 1996 is:

1.Stockton
2.Kidd
3.Payton
4.Nash
5. I cant decide on 5 yet but should go to Chris Paul, Deron Williams, Derrick Rose or Rajon Rondo.

In terms of career:

1. Magic Johnson
2. Oscar Robertson
3. Bob Cousy
4. Isiah Thomas
5. John Stockton

In terms of talent-skill-productions-domination:

1. Oscar Robertson (perhaps #1 at that in NBA history amongst any positions/players)
2. Magic Johnson
3. John Stockton
4. Tiny Archibald
5. Gary Payton
