I'll take Mookies bait. Good response Magna. If you've ever been to
Louisville, visit the Ali museum. If you believe everything in there, there is
no man who worked harder than Ali, a rather light heavyweight. Malone is right
there with Ali. I'll always defend him. And yes I remember Jordan's
steal in'98 two missed free throws in '97, and his departures to LA.
(Good chance he would have passed Jabber in the scoring title if he'd
stayed in Utah).
Way to go Wagner! What a great representative of USU and the state of Utah.
Wookie??? "great workman attitude. Wish it would have rubbed off more on
Malone." You should get a prize for that bizarre statement. I
don't think there are many harder workers than Karl Malone. The man built
himself into a two time MVP with a BMI of something like 4% in his late
thirties. He literally never stopped working on his body and his game.
According to Wikipedia, this is what Darrell Griffith said of Eaton's
performance: "It was a quadruple-double – points, blocks, rebounds and
loved the Eaton days. a mountain of a man with a 2 inch vertical. but he
did play amazing D and was such a big body and great workman attitude. Wish it
would have rubbed off more on Malone.(side note) I also liked the
days right after Eaton when Seattle and Utah was the heated rivalry that brought
out the best of those two teams. Oh, the good ole days!
Bobby is absolutely amazing. Really really miss in Cache Valley.
Eaton had a few years that he was amazing. He wasn't great at scoring but
he'd just clear out and either get an illegal defense call or at least
clear the middle for the Stockton/Malone pick and roll. But on defense...wow he
14 blocks! If Eaton's back had remained healthy a couple more years, the
Jazz would have won multiple championships.
Highly unlikely the Utes are "on the bubble" unless they get to the
semi-finals of the PAC 12 tournament. This is after winning all the rest of the
regular season, less the Oregon away game.
Save Collette, the team seems to have lost a degree of confidence and
aggression. There's still much to play for. Go Utes!
