This is amazing. I don’t care what anyone says, Stockton Malone Shorts one of the greatest names in the history of names.

Fabolous once said that he’s so NY Weezy probably doesn’t like him. John Stockton and Karl Malone are so Utah that everyone loves them, including the parents of one of the state’s best basketball players, Stockton Malone Shorts.

Shorts, 6-4, resides in West Jordan, Utah, and is a senior at Copper Hills High School. The Grizzlies are the sixth best team in the state with Shorts as the 11th best player, according to MaxPreps and ESPN, respectively. On the year, Copper Hills has amassed a 20-4 record and defeated Weber on Monday to advance to the quarterfinals of the UHSAA Class 5A playoffs.

Shorts is averaging 24.2 points (second in the state), 6.3 rebounds and 1.9 steals for the Grizzlies this season, but MaxPreps only has stats recorded for 11 of the 24 games. It’s clear he can hoop, so I’m going to set those numbers as the bottom line and presume that he equals those on a regular basis.
