McHale was a Better Post Player and Defender than Malone. Atleast We All Have To Admit To That.

It was a direct post.
This thread is full of garbage, fantasy, guessing and nit picking.
The simply answer is no. There is no debate. Any conversation following that is simply trolling by people who love McHale and hate Malone, or is off topic. And the reason for preference is not always about said players basketball ability.

How dare posters prefer a player (at their peaks) who is a better post scorer, defender, & playoff performer over a proven choker.

Look McHale Wasn`t Better as a Total Player than Malone but He Did Have 3 Skills That Where Better at than Malone: Low Post Game, Interior Defense/Shot Blocking and FT Shooting. Malone was a Better Rebounder, Passer, Finisher, Rim Attacker, Floor Defender and Stealer. More Versatile but If You Need a Dominant Post Scorer Who Can Defend SFs and PFs...Then You Gotta Go With McHale.

As I said, haters are gonna hate.

Malone being labelled a choker is so absurd, you are either hating or have no idea what you are talking about.

By the way, McHale had more low post moves. Malone still dropped 40,000 points from the high post and in, and was also an excellent defender, just not in the air as McHale was.

Its a BS thread, driven by hate of a personality (and probably racism). This thread is no better than the trolls hating on Kobe or Lebron.

McHale at his absolute peak play over 2-3 seasons, did not play as good as Malone did over 14 of his season, which included 11 straight All NBA at the power forward position.
So why dont posters acknowledge his absolute greatness on court and put to bed this petty comparison by nit picking with peaks and other garbage.

It's well known by the basketball world that Malone was a choker. I'm going by facts, Malone choked 4 years in a row ('96-'99)

As Scottie Pippen said "Mailman doesn't deliver on Sundays".
