The first Karl Malone appearance in the NBA was as the 13th overall pick in 1985 Draft by the Utah Jazz. By 1987, Malone established himself as the Jazz’s foundation of offense while his teammate John Stockton was the floor general. At the end of that season, the Jazz rose to national prominence after an amazing playoffs series. Malone and Stockton formed one of the most productive guard-forward combinations in NBA history. They also had All-Star seasons and were part of the Dream Team, the legendary 1992 US Olympic basketball team that won the gold medal. They again placed first at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta. By the early 1990s, thanks to this powerhouse duo, the Utah Jazz had risen to power as one of the top teams in the league.
Malone holds the records for most free throws attempted and made. He is also first all-time in defensive rebounds, as well as being second all-time on the NBA career scoring list. In 1996, he was voted to the NBA’s 50 Greatest Players list. A bronze statue depicting the basketball legend was built on the SE corner of the EnergySolutions Arena block in March 2006.
Malone spent his first 18 seasons as the Jazz’s star player. He then played one season for the Los Angeles Lakers before retiring in February 2005.
