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.
