only teams that the Rockets had that could beat the Jazz was when Dream proved he was the craftiest and sickest post move center to ever play the game when they went back to back in 1993 and 1994....

Malone couldn't move dude - he had a beautiful shot, but his feet were made out of cinder blocks....

I'm so glad that Malone and Stockton retired some ringless shitbirds....
Dude, Cheetos, you're out of your mind if you think he was comparable to Kendrick Perkins in athletic ability.

Malone and Duncan are either #1 or #2 at the power forward position for the modern era (possibly all-time). He was a career 25ppg/10trb type of guy. Kendrick Perkins is a defensive liability, and offensive amateur. He has never had the type of effect on the game that the Mailman had and I question the mental capacity of anyone who would seriously compare them as players.

Offensively, Malone was the prototype for guys like KG, and Duncan who came after him. A silky shooter from 10 to 20 feet. An excellent post scorer. He could back you up, and fade away, or he could come up and under and finish. More than likely, he would just crash on you with a dunk. Let me know when Kendrick Perkins could ever in his entire career be as lethal a scorer as the Mailman.

Defensively, Malone wasn't a rim protector, but he was a great on ball/post defender and he was very good within the team concept as well. To ignore his defensive ability because he wasn't a shot blocker/rim protector is foolish. I am old enough to have watched Malone play in his PRIME and I remember all too well how many times he stripped players, pulled the chair, pushed them off of the block, made his rotations and took charges. He was a great defender, just not a shot blocker/rim protector.

Anyone who saw him play knows he is 10x the player Kendrick Perkins is, and ever will be. That comparison is asinine.

Here's a glimpse of a 33 year old Karl Malone giving Jordan and his Bulls all they could handle in the 1997 Finals (the same year Karl Malone won the league MVP):


"as athletic as Kendrick Perkins"

LOL

Bron gets nose broken - scores 61 2 games from returning to the lineup.....

Yes, even the Bobcats were marveling at James. He was hitting from everywhere, even a pull-up 3-pointer from about 30 feet -- Spoelstra joked it was from 40 -- late in the third quarter, as the crowd roared and the Heat bench jumped with joy.

"Yeah, that was a designed play," Spoelstra deadpanned. "We've been working on that one for a while."

That was the moment, James said, when he knew he was in the midst of a special night.

"Every night I go on the floor I want to be the MVP, of this league, MVP of this team, MVP for me, myself and my family," James said. "I've set a high standard and I have to live by that."

In Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals, LeBron James scored 32 points, grabbed 10 rebounds, and dished out five assists in the Miami's Heat victory over the Indiana Pacers. While that line would rank among the career-best games of many players, it's long been standard for the 10-time All-Star and four-time MVP. These performances, and the highlights that go along with them, are his normal.

This particular game, however, marked a new milestone for the superstar. It was LeBron's 74th game with at least 25 points, five rebounds, and five assists, breaking a tie with Michael Jordan for the most such games in NBA postseason history.

of course he did.........because ball don't lie.....
