Moses Malone

Moses Malone was a brute on the boards, a scoring machine, a Champion, and a MVP on three separate occasions. He left nothing on the table when he retired. (Malone is one of only nine players to win three or more MVP awards, one of eight if we take away ABA designations.)

The Chairman of The Boards leaves behind one heck of a legacy; a six time rebounding champ, the all time leader in offensive rebounds, third all time in overall rebounding, and seventh all time in points.

I read online that when Malone passed last week he was only the second MVP to do so, a rather remarkable fact. Condolences to those he left behind.

The Resume:

13x All-Star

8x All-NBA

2X All-Defense

Finals MVP

3x MVP
