NBA: Most Turnovers in Basketball History

Karl Malone and John Stockton Are One-Two in NBA Turnover History

Karl Malone and John Stockton Are One-Two in NBA Turnover History

The famous Utah Jazz pair, Karl Malone and John Stockton, are all over the record books, from points to assists to steals.  But here’s an ignominious list the two top: most turnovers ever.  They’re the only NBAers with more than 4,000 turnovers as of the date of this post.

Really, though, it’s not that bad.  It seems making this list is more a function of career service length and ball possession than anything else.  These guys all played a bunch of years…and commanded the ball often. And some are still playing…and playing (Jason Kidd, Kobe Bryant, Paul Pierce).
