He neva won a ring. He just accumulated stats, and was clutch in the regular season.
He averaged 20 a game until he was 39, just because he was so damn selfish he couldn't picture himself leaving Utah NOT as the leading scorer.
That's probably how Bob Ryan feels anyway. If he didn't have an Around the Horn job, you'd think this guy was a child molester, was a general manager at a Carl Jr. or he lived in his mothers basement and was a chronic masturbator.
Bob Ryan is simply a hater, I've watched enough Around The Horn to know that he is just an angry man, and a hater. He covers sports back east in Boston. He has the northeast bias. He probably never saw Karl play, just saw stats and his no rings. He also forgets to mention that if Karl stays healthy the Lakers probably win the title, and Malone was like what, 39, 40 years old? Yeah he sure is overrated.
I really only kind of like Karl because he was a Jazzman ....Not that he is kind of removed from my Jazz fan-ness I kind of hate him. "Through my eyes" blah blah blah, played hard but was a bitch and a diva no matter how much he tried to convince everyone he was just a good ol boy from the country.
