I knew he was going to end it finally and after 19 years without that
one treasure he seeked a Ring ! congratulation to Karl Malone for
the years he gave
another name in fame but beside players likes of C. Barkley , Patrick Ewing
who miss out on titles & a ring !
it was said that Reggie Miller will retire as well after this season with the Pacers .
As great as Malone was my last memory of him will always be in game 6 of the 1998 NBA Finals: Jordan stripping the ball from Malone with about 30 seconds left (Malone completely caught off guard, falling on his A** trying to get the ball back)...Jordan dribbling up the court...faking Byron Russell out his sneakers, then hitting the game winning shot!!! Also I can't forget Scottie Pippen wispering in his ear: "The Mailman doesn't deliver on Sunday" as he missed 2 freethrows (which caused Utah to lose) in game 1 of the 1997 NBA Finals! Ahhh Karl Malone, surely Utah Jazz fans will remember more glorious moments than I do...LOL! Unquestionably he was one of the greatest players to play the game...kinda dirty at times..."Watch the elbows"...but great nonetheless! He will go down as one of many great players who Jordan froze out of winning titles in the 1990s. The Bulls had that decade on lockdown!
so true Pan those was some great moments captured
and yes Malone was a great yet dirty player that forgot
Air Jordan take off every night so sunday was no different
but i will remember him as a great player who lone for a title
with stockton he most def a JAZZMAN forever not a Laker
so now the mail won't deliver in NBA no more which now takes
me to the list of players who never taste championship glory!
and a wonderment of where Karl Malone will end up ?
as a scout or asst coach maybe a sport anchor or will he
vanish from the Basketball world forever .
how long will his name ring in the NBA ?
like Jordan people still talking about this guy around the NBA
Rich as long as one player knocks another out with a elbow or forearm...Malone will never be forgotten!
he's one of the greatest players not to win a championship...he stayed with utah too long...ima miss his strong arm tactics...
Good, I'm glad he's retiring. He was a great player, but his attitude and tactics sucked. He was a dirty player throughout the years and I'm glad his front-running @ss never got a championship.
I completely agree with this statement!
I think all elbows in the NBA should be called Karl Malone's from now on!
