Read full description of the books:
Assisted is an amazing story about John Stockton who is one of the all-time greatest players in NBA history. It is by John Stockton and Kerry L. Pickett. The characters in the book help shape John into a basketball player. Some of these characters are Jack and Clemy Stockton, Kerry L. Pickett, Coach Dan Fitzgerald, Coach Frank Layden, Larry Miller, and Karl Malone. At one point in the book John Stockton had this to say about Coach Pickett, “No matter how high coach set our goals, we had learned by this time that we could reach most of them.” Coach Pickett set high goals for John and he learned how to accomplish them, no matter how high they were set.
The stories in the book are set in several places at various times throughout John Stockton’s life. It starts out talking about Stockton's family life as he grew up in Spokane, WA. John was very thankful for being born and raised in Spokane. Spokane is home to Gonzaga University which is where his Grandpa was a star football player. In the summer before 6th grade, John was throwing a football around at the park across from his house when he and two of his friends met 3 grownups who offered to throw them passes. One of them was Kerry Pickett who turned out to be John’s coach from 6th - 8th grade. Coach Pickett really built John up as a basketball player. He made John and the other boys work really hard. Stockton shared that, “Practice ended with “hallways” - a medieval torture masterminded by an evil conditioning genius.” From the great coaching John got at an early age it helped him go on to be a star high school basketball player at Gonzaga Prep. He had 3 Universities offer him basketball scholarships and in the end he chose to stay at home in Spokane to play at Gonzaga University. After a great 4 years at Gonzaga, Stockton was hopeful of getting drafted into the NBA. His dream came true as the Utah Jazz selected him with their first round pick. For the first time in his life, John would move away from Spokane and Salt Lake City became his new home. He stayed with the Utah Jazz for his entire NBA career which was 18 years.
I would highly recommend Assisted if you like basketball and the Utah Jazz. It is an autobiography. It is 320 pages. It is good for someone who likes a good sports book.
