Before there was Tim Duncan, Blake Griffin, Dirk Nowitzki, and Kevin Garnett, there was Karl Malone.
For 18 years he poured his heart and soul for the Utah Jazz and became an unstoppable force in the paint. He, along with John Stockton, made the Jazz a perennial playoff team and even guided Utah to the NBA Finals in 1997 and 1998. And though he never won an NBA title, he is considered one of the best power forwards to even grace the hardwood.
Though his career with Utah will always be tied to Stockton, he made a mark in the NBA and with the Jazz and was inducted into the NBA Hall of Fame in 2010 and was a part of the 1992 Olympic "Dream Team."
