Karl Malone – dunking highlights (VIDEO)


karl-maloneIn terms of dunks, Karl Malone was never as creative and as ferocious as Shawn Kemp for example, yet he was one of the most powerful ones, depending on the situation.

Malone spent his first 18 seasons (1985–2003) in the National Basketball Association (NBA) with the Utah Jazz and formed a formidable duo with his teammate John Stockton.

He was a two-time NBA Most Valuable Player, a 14-time NBA All-Star, and an 11-time member of the All-NBA first team.

Malone scored the second most career points in NBA history (36,298), and holds the records for most free throws attempted and made. He is generally considered one of the greatest NBA power forwards.

The Jazz drafted Malone in 1985 with the 13th overall pick in the first round. Malone appeared in the playoffs every season in his career, including the NBA Finals in 1997 and 1998 with the Jazz.

He played his final season with the Los Angeles Lakers, with whom he played his third Finals in 2004. Internationally, Malone competed with the United States national team in the Summer Olympic games of 1992 and 1996; in both years he won gold medals.

After retiring from the NBA, Malone joined the staff of the Louisiana Tech basketball team in 2007 and was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 2010.

Malone holds career averages of 25 ppg, 10.1 rpg and 3.6 apg in 37.2 minutes of playing time. He played in 1476 NBA games (1471 started).
