Milwaukee Bucks head coach Jason Kidd was a pretty damn good point guard in his day.

Known as a triple-double machine, Kidd sits third in league history for regular season triple-doubles and he finished his career ranked second on the NBA all-time lists in career assists and steals and fifth in the three-point field goals made category.

However, not even a career as sensational as that can matchup with John Stockton's.

Stockton spent his entire career with the Utah Jazz alongside The Mailman Karl Malone, but they never won an NBA title despite coming close on several occasions.

Kidd did, however, end his career with the most assists and steals in the history of the NBA, and by some margin.

Kidd has brought Stockton in to help his point guards out during training camp and he is thrilled to have secured such a legend.

"You talk about the best player at his position," Kidd said about Stockton. "If you want to help your guys at some of the positions, you find the best and I got very lucky John could join us these next couple days."

Giannis Antetokounmpo and Matthew Dellacedova have been lucky enough to receive some of Stockton's wisdom, and the latter ha revealed just how valuable his advice has been.

"It's been awesome," Dellavedova said about Stockton. "He has so much knowledge. Just try to soak up as much as of that as possible. It's been great."
