NBA career

Karl Malone was chosen by the Jazz in 1985 out of Louisiana Tech with the 13th overall pick in the draft. After his rookie season, the Jazz saw in him the potential to be the cornerstone of their offense. So, they traded star forward, Adrian Dantley, to the Detroit Pistons and decided to build around Malone. 1985 NBA Draft - 18 June 1985 See also: List of NBA Drafts, NBA Draft // (*) compensation for draft choices traded away by Ted Stepien This draft marks the first time the NBA Draft Lottery was introduced it was put into place so teams did not have to intentionally lose games to...

At the same time, reserve point guard John Stockton was winning the trust of the coaching staff and the love of the fans. By 1987, Malone was the foundation of the offense and Stockton was the floor general and both had All-Star seasons. That season was also the first for head coach Jerry Sloan, The three would be inseparable for 16 seasons. It was also at the end of that season that the Jazz as a team rose to national prominence after an amazing playoffs series against the Magic Johnson-led Los Angeles Lakers. For many years, he and Stockton played together on the Jazz, forming one of the most productive guard-forward combinations in NBA history. The two played a record 1,412 regular-season games together as teammates. Playing Jerry Sloan's scrappy and tough style and perfecting the pick and roll to a maximum degree of efficiency, the Jazz became a staple to make it to the playoffs and to have a winning record in the regular season. He would lead the Jazz to multiple 50-win seasons with the exception of 1992-93 (47-35) where the Jazz stumbled after the All-Star Game (when he and Stockton won co-MVP honors), 2001-02's 44-38 finish and 2002-03 where they finished again with a 47-35 record.

Karl stayed on active duty for one more season, joining the Los Angeles Lakers in an attempt to win a championship, the only major achievement absent in his career. His bid failed as the Lakers were defeated in five games by the Detroit Pistons in 2004 NBA Finals in a series where Malone sprained his right knee and played injured for 4 of the 5 games before missing game 5 with the Lakers down 3-1 and series over. Although several NBA teams sought his services for the 2004-05 season, Malone decided to retire as a player on February 13, 2005. The Jazz retired his number 32 jersey in his honor.

Player profile

Malone is regarded as one of the best power forwards in the history of the NBA. He collected two regular-season MVP Awards, 11 NBA First Team nominations and was also selected to the NBA All-Defensive Team three times.


He scored 36,928 points (25.0 per game), second best all-time, on remarkable .516 shooting. His high field goal percentage benefited from two factors, namely the pick-and-roll offense, and secondly his physical power, enabling him to overpower most forwards. Malone grabbed an average 10.1 rebounds (thus averaging a double-double in his career) and also stole an average 1.41 balls per game.

He was a physical defender and rebounder, and one of the most durable players ever in the NBA, missing a total of only five regular season games in his first 13 years in the league. He maintained a high level of play even at age 40, becoming the oldest player to both log a triple-double and to be a starter on an NBA-Finals bound team. Malone's work ethic showed prominently in his formative years in the NBA where he raised his free throw shooting percentage from below 50% to 75% in a few years. He also added a long range jump shot which made him difficult to defend.

Aggressive Style and Incidents on the Court

Malone was a very physical player and was scrutinized for his dirty style of play. His "flying" elbows were often the center of incidents on the court. So much so he was once referenced as "Dr. Elbow" by the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. In 1991 in a game against the Pistons, Malone powered through Isiah Thomas while going up for a rebound, smashing his elbow through Thomas's face. Thomas required 40-stitches above his left eye. In 2003, in an attempt to prevent a steal, Malone landed an elbow into the face of Steve Nash, almost breaking off a tooth and causing bleeding from Nash's face. One of the most notable incidents was in a game against the San Antonio Spurs in 1998. In the game, Malone landed a elbow to the head of David Robinson. The 7-foot center immediately collapsed to the ground and was unconscious for 2 minutes. Despite the severity of injuries induced by Malone, each incident resulted in only a 1-game suspension and a small fine.
