List Rules Please rank the players based only on their time with the Jazz

A list of the best Utah Jazz of all time. Originally based in New Orleans, the Jazz moved to Utah in 1979, which explains its confusing team name. When the team was in New Orleans, players like Gail Goodrich and Pete Maravich were standout players for the Jazz in its early years. Upon the move to Utah, the Jazz have been a model of stability. Within 10 years of playing in Salt Lake City, the Jazz had two of the best players in NBA history on its roster in Karl Malone and John Stockton. As these two Hall of Famers matured, the Jazz became one of the best teams in the NBA. Malone and Stockton went to numerous All Star Games and are one of the most celebrated duos of all time.

While Malone and Stockton led the team, there were various other standout players who played supporting roles. Mark Eaton, Jeff Hornacek and Jeff Malone are among the best players in Jazz history to have been with the team during its glory years. The team made the NBA Finals in 1997 and 1998, but fell short against Michael Jordan's Chicago Bulls.

More recently, some of the best players in Jazz history have been its big men. Between Andrei Kirilenko, Carlos Boozer and Paul Millsap, the Jazz have had some of the best power forwards on the team.
