It appears there is a new rising point guard on the Gonzaga horizon, with a very familiar last name. Redshirt freshman David Stockton, the son of N.B.A. Hall of Famer John Stockton, is beginning to write his own history as a player.

Please don't post full articles on the board. I know you shared the link - and I appreciate it - but newspapers are dying in part because folks aren't visiting their websites. thanks

After checking Magic Johnson's tweet (http://twitter.com/magicjohnson)re: Stocks, it actually read:

"I'm enjoying watching my old rival, John Stockton's son play for St. Mary's. Like father, like son."

The NY Times correctly omitted this portion of his tweet. I think the Black Jerseys must have confused Magic.
