Prejudice

Twitter

(This is an excerpt from Assisted by John Stockton and Kerry L. Pickett.)

“I received a little taste of that battle speed and intensity in our initial scrimmage. The first time I touched the ball, Rickey Green, the Jazz’s veteran point guard, picked me in the backcourt. He led the NBA in steals the prior year, so it wasn’t as though I was his only victim. Moments later, Jeff Wilkins blocked my first layup attempt. He did this with emphasis (and ‘extreme prejudice,’ I might add.)”

(John Stockton and Kerry L. Pickett, Assisted: An Autobiography [Salt Lake City: Shadow Mountain, 2013], 124).
