The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / The Top 10 Utah Jazz players of All Time

The Top 10 Utah Jazz players of All Time

The Top 10 Jazz players of all time!
Publish Date: 06/07/2021
Fact checked by: Simon Briffa

Active players are not included on this list.

10) Mark Eaton

The 7’4″ center started 815 games and averaged 3.5 blocks for the Jazz. That average is not only the best in team history, but it tops the list of all NBA players as well. He’s also fourth in league history in total blocks and first in team history with a whopping 3,064. Eaton may be the greatest shot-blocker in NBA history, of course, it doesn’t hurt to be 7’4″.

9) Carlos Boozer

From 2004 to 2010, Boozer averaged 19.3 points while shooting 54 percent from the field and was an excellent pick-and-roll complement to point guard Deron Williams because of his ability to both finish at the rim and knock down mid-range jump shots.

8) Darrell Griffith

Griffith was great at dunking the ball, hence the nickname Dr.Dunkenstein but he was a great shooter and led the NBA in three-pointers made in 1984 and 1985.

7) Andrei Kirilenko

Kirilenko was one of the most versatile players in the NBA. From 2003 to 2006, he averaged 15.8 points, 7.6 rebounds, 3.6 assists, 3.0 blocks, and 1.7 steals per game. His PER during that stretch was 22.2. Kirilenko for my money was the best defensive player in Jazz history.

6) Deron Williams

In four years as the full-time starting point guard in Utah, Williams averaged 18.2 points and 10.2 assists, led his team to four straight playoff appearances, and outplayed consensus top point guard Chris Paul almost every time they went head-to-head.

5) Jeff Hornacek

Utah’s franchise leader in both three-point and free-throw percentage. He’s also in the top 10 in team history in three-point field goals, assists, and steals.

As a member of the Jazz, Hornacek averaged 14.4 points, 4.0 assists, and 2.8 rebounds a game over the last six-and-a-half seasons of his NBA career. If you were to put a list of underrated players together Hornacheck would be on that list every time.

4) Pistol Pete Maravich

Maravich was a playmaker, he could dribble, pass, and shot and he was an elite scorer. He was the Jazz franchise’s first true superstar and he played the game with a flair that was unmatched.

3) Adrian Dantley

Dantley won two scoring titles with the Jazz and averaged over 30 points a game in four different seasons. Over the seven years he spent in Utah, Dantley averaged 29.6 points per game—that puts him at No. 1 in Jazz history. I came close to putting him over Malone because Dantley was a better scorer and he did not have a John Stockton setting him up.

2) Karl Malone

Malone averaged 25.4 points, 10.2 rebounds, and 3.5 assists per game. He’s in the top 10 in team history in 29 different statistical categories. He’s first in 13 of those categories, including points, field goals, free throws, and rebounds. Malone was also an elite rebounder, averaging double-figures 10 times during his career. From 1986 to 1995, he averaged 11.2 rebounds per game.

1). John Stockton

Stockton is first in NBA history in assists, assist percentage, and steals. He’s second in assists per game and seventh in steals per game. Stockton played all 1,504 of his career NBA games in a Utah Jazz uniform. From 1987 to 1996, Stockton led the NBA in assists per game for eight straight seasons. During that stretch, he averaged 15.7 points, 13.1 assists, 3.0 rebounds, and 2.6 steals while shooting 52 percent from the field and 39 percent from three-point range.
