Utah Jazz is probably best known for the legendary battles that they had with Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls in the late ‘90s. However, their story starts in 1974, in New Orleans, where they would stay for five years, and then they moved to Salt Lake, Utah. The early years weren’t that favorable since they never managed to become a team that would go far in the playoffs. When the Stockton/Malone era started in 1984, most of the Utah fans didn’t have any trust in the young point guard and thought that he was the wrong pick to make. It would take Stockton plenty of years before proving to everyone that he was one of the best point guards in the league. To be more exact, the ‘90s were his years as he would regularly help his team reach new heights, peaking at the NBA Finals. The 1996-98 seasons were the best seasons of this franchise because they were led by a legendary Karl Malone and John Stockton, that wiped the floor with the competition, and it seemed like no one would be able to stop them, until they reached the finals, and were defeated by the legendary dynasty of the Chicago Bulls.
