In Utah, Malone never played with a center that was even close to those kind of numbers or had that kind of impact other than Eaton on the defensive end (he had no offense though)... Do we really need to compare stats between old Robinson and Greg Ostertag or can you figure that one out on your own? Great centers are an extremely rare commodity in the league, the defensive impact that Robinson gave the team does not show up on the stat sheet. Robinson changed people's shots and closed down the lane, and was still giving some decent offense, was an excellent passer, and had the smarts and know how to come up big when needed, on top of that.

LOL, apparently you missed the fact that he was about 40 years old, and was playing with a major injury. [/quote]

The Lakers would hardly steamroll them, they would have lost. And as it's been pointed out, the Jazz swept that same Laker's team right before their titles... Back when everyone was saying there was no way Utah could even compete against that mighty Lakers team. That's right... they got SWEPT in embarrassing fashion, by the Malone lead Jazz.

Karl Malone should not be mentioned in the same thread as Tim Duncan. It is disgraceful to a player as great as Duncan, to be sullied by the failures of Malone.

It's ironic, because most people bash Dirk for being a choker (he only did against GSW). But Dirk has nothing, I MEAN NOTHING, on Karl "the Choke Artist" Malone. Don't even type Duncan and Malone in the same sentence (like I just did!), even if you're talking about Moses (him either).
