His new auto-biography is available! Just bought it.

Would make an excellent broadcaster.

Stockton was on Colin Cowherd this morning. I tuned in about 1 hour and 15 minutes into program and they were already chatting so I not sure how much I may have missed. Going to go back a watch podcast later. Nothing earth shattering. Talked about his book and playing against all the other HOF players. I was hoping Colin would talk about his days at EWU and Stockton playing for the Zags, but if that was mentioned it was before I turned it on.

Cowherd did mention seeing Stockton score 42 against the Eagles while he as there.

Here is Russillo w/Kanell:

Thanks for sharing this! I enjoyed listening to the interviews by John Stockton. He's really an articulate guy and would make an excellent sportscaster. Obviously the guy is just a talented and gifted individual that would have been successful in whatever he decided to pursue. Thanks, again, for sharing this with the Gonzaga faithful!

I can't think of an alum of our basketball team that I didn't just burst with pride to be associated with him or HER.

It's funny, bc as good an interview as that was and as gracious as Stocks is - you could tell it was just killing him to talk about himself. But, the publisher had to be smiling. Colin can be insufferable but he is a great interviewer. His interview with Condoleeza Rice when guest hosting for Keith was hall of fame stuff.

FWIW (per sonuvazag's Cowherd account) Stockton is not in the 40 pt. club (per media guide).

Always been, always will be a humble gentleman.....

Thanks for the interview links!

I got my copy last Monday, it was a good read. I pre-ordered on Barnes and Nobel and was surprised that they sent it out before it was in stores, got a very good deal, used up a gift card that we've had sitting around for years, and was able to get my son 3 Berenstain Bears books to qualify for free shipping (I also got a lot of exercise running up the stairs to look for the UPS truck any time I heard the slightest bump outside lol). Needless to say, there are two happy campers at our house :)

I got mine at Costco on Sunday before they were in stores too. They had a stack of them in case you are interested.

I just pre-ordered my copy from Auntie's today. Two great Spokane institutions: John Stockton and Auntie's book store. It would have been $12 cheaper on kindle, but I'd rather have a hard copy that I can lend to my bro or whoever wants to borrow.

I see John at Mass at St. Al's sometimes. True to his humble nature, he's out the door at the end of Mass before he can be waylaid by admirers.

I read almost everything on Kindle---but I went the same direction on this one. I can loan it out to a friend that way.
