'90s Highlights

Karl Malone and John Stockton are joined at the hip. They played 1,412 regular season games together. Stockton is the all-time leader in assists while Malone is second all-time in points. You think they benefited from each other? Karl kept himself in great shape and only missed significant time twice in his career. He had a decent post-up game, but it was his corner jumper that payed the bills. If Stockton got it to him in the right spot, it was an automatic assist. Malone was also one of the game's toughest players. Everyone cleared out of the way when he came down with a board so they wouldn't get smacked with an elbow. Malone was also a member of the Dream Team.
