Resolution to honor Stockton

OLYMPIA — A resolution honoring basketball legend John Stockton for his careers at Gonzaga Prep, Gonzaga University and the Utah Jazz has been introduced in the state House of Representatives.

It honors Stockton, the recent Hall of Fame inductee, for his basketball accomplishments, contributions to the city and state,  and “for being a positive role model on and off the court.”

Rep. Timm Ormsby, D-Spokane, the sponsor and a fellow alum of St. Al’s Elementary School, said the resolution is expected to come up in a pro forma floor session — what sports announcers might call a break in the action — later this month.

Passage of such a resolution is routine, but the recipients at that point are a bit unusual. It asks the resolution be transmitted immediately to Stockton, the NBA Hall of Fame, the Spokane Youth Sports Association, Spokane City officials — and Jack and Dan’s Bar & Grill.
