In the NBA, John Stockton and Karl Malone of the Utah Jazz used this play to great effect in the 1990s, leading their team to the NBA Finals in 1997 and 1998. Stockton, a point guard, was a good shooter and exceptional decision maker and Malone, a power forward, was a great finisher. LeBron James and Žydrūnas Ilgauskas used this play quite a lot while playing for Cleveland Cavaliers. When they were teammates on the Utah Jazz, Deron Williams and Carlos Boozer also utilized the high-screen pick and roll to great success, and similarly Steve Nash and Amare Stoudemire when they were paired on the Phoenix Suns.
According to Synergy Sports Technology, use of the pick and roll in the NBA rose from 15.6% of total plays in the 2004–05 NBA season to 18.6% in the 2008–09 NBA season.
