Malone isn't exactly a choir boy, but many of those flaws can be explained. He came up NBA Live Coins short against Michael Jordan, but so did lots of players. He wasn't always his best in the final parts of a game, but what power forwards are? He feuded with Jazz owner Larry Miller a lot, but what great player hasn't feuded with someone in a position of power? He probably shouldn't have clubbed so many people with his elbows, and he probably shouldn't have said anything about
Magic Johnson's HIV, but that's sometimes the price you pay when you are as quotable as Karl. He maybe couldn't create offense as much on his own, but as noted above, if it was so easy for people to score like Malone did, wouldn't more people be doing it?That last line is really the key here. For 19 years, Karl Malone made excellence look routine. If that's not greatness, I'm not sure what is.VIDEO: Nenad Krstic Throws Chair During Greece-Serbia Fight -
I've watched way more of Nenad Krstic's NBA games than I'm proud to admit, and I always figured him as a gentle giant. He's known for his jump shot, not his ability to mix it up inside. I guess what I'm trying to say is that he's one of the last players I'd expect to throw a chair at someone.Except, that's exactly what he did. A huge fight broke out during an exhibition game between
Greece and Serbia, and it ended with Krstic winding up and pegging Sofoklis Schortsanitis with a chair.Damn, Nenad. If only you channeled one tenth of that energy into grabbing some rebounds, you'd be a great NBA player. Though, to be fair, Krstic didn't exactly endear himself as the tough guy of this fight. As Tom Zillernoted.
Krstic was clearly the Carmelo Anthony of this fight. I couldn't find a Buy NBA Live Mobile Coins single instance where Nenad swung at someone who was looking at him, instead choking and slapping at Fotsis from behind (15-second mark) and pounding the back of Sofo's head (34-second mark). Then there's the back-pedalling flight, no less wimpy than Melo's moonwalk across to MTnba2k
