Earlier today, legendary Utah Jazz point guard John Stockton stopped by Jim Rome’s “The Jungle” and talked about his past life in the NBA.
One of the topics of conversation ended up being Stockton’s short shorts during his career and this what John had to say on that matter:
“They just kept giving me the shorts, I was just glad to have a uniform. I never complained about a shorts or lengths of jerseys or anything else I was glad they let me play,” said Stockton. “Later in my career, finally Terry Clark our equipment manager and trainer said hey ‘You want to add a couple inches to the inseem of that?’ and ‘I said you can do that?’.”
R.I.P. Short Shorts…
