If you are a Karl Malone fan and want to find out more about the athlete, the man, you will thoroughly enjoy this book. Written in an easy to read manner, I was absorbed from the beginning. Karl Malone is undoubtedly the best power forward to have played the game--winning two MVP awards and arriving at the finals twice. He gave the game everything he had to give--every single game he played. Too bad more young player's don't have his dedication, his respect for the game. I truly miss watching Karl and John Stockton running the pick and roll to perfection. They both were the epitome of the blue collar, hard working man mentality--and I'm afraid, in basketball, they were the last of a dying breed. Enjoyable read!
When Karl Malone arrived in Salt Lake City in 1985, he couldn't make a free throw, hit a jumper or decipher a game plan. How then did he make himself over into one of the greatest first-ranking power forwards ever?
