In the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament, David led both teams in assists (9) and assist to turnover ratio (4.5)! Those 9 assists were in 22 minutes of playing time. He also had 1 steal and 2 blocks!

Nice going, David!

Blocks are becoming a thing with David The Stuffer.

Too bad the late Marvin Webster already had the nickname "Human Eraser".

Give me a break, he wouldn't be doing any of that $hit if his father wasn't John Stockton.

Could have easily had 15 assists....lots of missed shots. Stocks can run a team.

Go!! Zags!!!

As mentioned in a previous thread, this is a target rich environment for a player like DS; have a bunch of ball hogs and shooters, then a passer will be in his element! Hope this will help him overseas.

Sarcasm on the interwebs is like winking on the phone. Not very productive.

Haven't seen any yet, but if you go to slam online, you can watch the replay.David starts playing about six minutes in, I think, and it's pretty much a highlight reel the whole time he is in there, lol.

Draft Express take on David (http://www.draftexpress.com/article/2014-Portsmouth-Invitational-Tournament-Day-Two-4475):
David Stockton, 5-11, Point Guard, Gonzaga – 4 points, 9 assists, 2 turnovers, 2 blocks - No one was more fun to watch on Thursday than Stockon, who ran his team beautifully and made some terrific passes. He played surprisingly excellent defense, sticking to his man like glue and coming up with some impressive blocks thanks to his long 6-3 wingspan. He's likely not a NBA prospect due to his lack of size, average frame and poor outside shooting ability, but he is almost certain to have a nice career in Europe.

Or a comment of genetics and talent. DS is great player and will earn a pay check if he wants (over seas most likely)

David's brother Michael played in Summer League for Utah last year. I wouldn't be surprised to see David get an invite for this year.

He's the kind of player who would be handy to have on a Summer league team, running the offense and distributing for his teammates. I concur that I don't think he has the size or shooting ability to play in the NBA, but with his handles and passing, he should be able to make good money overseas, if that's what he wants.

David has as much potential as Phil Pressey of the Celtics. Pressey skipped his senior season, entered the NBA draft but wasn't drafted, he showed enough skills in summercamp and made the team.
So there is a chance if he continues to shine in these camps.

Imagine what can happen when he's passing to guys who know how to catch the ball. and finish. I'm shocked. Shocked, I say . . .

David with 6 points, 3 assists, 2 steals. He set some people up nicely who didn't finish a few times which hurt his assist total a bit, but overall I thought this opposing team did a good job closing down passing lanes. Still, a solid game from David, IMO.

By the way, I was also impressed with Tyler Johnson and Markel Starks.

Way to go David! Portsmouth Invitational Tournament champions! Nice NBA three pointer, too!

Enjoyed watching David play again.

What a great evening! I have two computers on my desk (long story short--I can't do things on my new computer that I need to do) so I watched David's game on the left and Matty B's on the right. Matty's game is still running.

Really great to watch two of my favorite Zags online.

This story includes David in the All-Tournament team (http://www.dailypress.com/sports/dp-spt-final-day-20140419,0,7293852.story)....:


Sixty-four seniors came to the PIT hoping to impress NBA and international scouts gathered courtside. The all-tournament team included Starks, Gardner, Roberts, Duke's Andre Dawkins, Morgan State's Ian Chiles, Stanford's Josh Huestis, Niels Giffey of national champion Connecticut and Toledo's Rian Pearson.

Also gaining all-tournament honors were Notre Dame's Garrick Sherman, Buffalo's Javon McCrea, Northwestern's Drew Crawford, Fresno State's Tyler Johnson, Oakland's Travis Bader, Marquette's Jamil Wilson and Gonzaga's David Stockton, the son of NBA all-time assists leader John Stockton.
However, he's not on the Official site's listing of the all-tournament team (https://www.portsmouthinvitational.com/), so who knows?

Thanks for the link, ZN.

On your link, I found the link I've attached above. It's the list of last year's 64 players, and where they'd played this past season. 63 of the 64 guys are playing professional basketball, either in the NBA, the D league or overseas. Something tells me that walk on guard (no scholarship offers) David Stockton's basketball career is far from over.

I agree. I think he will have plenty of opportunities to play basketball professionally. I personally also think he would make a great basketball coach. He has a winning attitude, is a good leader, and understands the game well. Whatever he decides to do, I wish him well, and I will miss watching him play college basketball!

Thanks everyone ! For providing the links and the chat.

DS has done himself proud in this tourney. My thoughts as I watched was how he made his teammates so much better. basically a bunch of shooters with a guy who could and did get the ball to the open guy, or the go to guy, or the designated guy, just about every time.

Re pro: I think he will get every consideration. The NBA is rife with shooters. But I don't too often see guys on teams who are out there to improve everyone else's game. They exist, to be sure, or there wouldn't be team winners at the end of each year. But there are many more teams in need of a q.b. like DS to distribute and basically be the traffic cop among superstars. AND he needs to get his numbers on O, too. But I posit it would be harder to develop his kind of high bkb IQ, passing skills, and gutty leadership, than it would be for him to work and improve on his shooting.
