Karl Anthony Malone (born July 24, 1963) is an American retired professional basketball player. He spent his entire NBA career with the Utah Jazz, except for the last year of his career, where he played for the Los Angeles Lakers. He is 2nd place on the list of basketball players who have scored the most points all time. Before entering the NBA, he played college basketball at Louisiana Tech University where he earned the nickname, The Mailman for his consistency and his work in the post. Some people think he is the greatest player who did not win an NBA championship, while others argue it could be teammate John Stockton, Charles Barkley or Patrick Ewing.

Malone had a professional wrestling match at World Championship Wrestling (WCW)'s Bash at the Beach in 1998, where he teamed with Diamond Dallas Page to face Hollywood Hogan and Dennis Rodman.[1]
