Best Players in Utah Jazz History


The Top Ten

1 Karl Malone Karl Malone Karl Anthony Malone is an American retired professional basketball player. Nicknamed "The MailMan", Malone played the power forward position and spent his first 18 seasons in the National Basketball Association with the Utah Jazz and formed a formidable duo with his teammate John Stockton.

Karl Malone is the best basketball player to ever wear a Utah Jazz jersey (all due respect to John Stockton who is an all time great in his own right). Malone is the only player in team history to win the NBA MVP and he did it twice (the second time he became the oldest player to ever win NBA MVP). He's the leading scorer in team history and the second leading scorer in NBA history. His list of accolades and accomplishments is long and I could sit here and list them all but I don't feel it's necessary. People can research them. I'll leave this simply, Karl Malone is the best player in team history. Not only that, he's a top 10 player in NBA history.

3rd most points in NBA history behind LeBron James and Michael Jordan. - GeneralJP

Shoot, the Mailman delivered for Utah even more than the great Juan Stockton. 2 Time MVP! MVP PEOPLE!

Karl Malone was the best in jazz history and the best Power Forward sorry Tim Duncan fans but Tim Duncan ain't GOT NUTTIN on The Mailman

One of the best PGs of all-time. - GeneralJP

Sure he's not the 2nd leading scorer in the NBA but he's awesome he never really got all the applause it all went straight to Karl Malone. Vote for John Stockton

More NBA records than I can remember, definitely most by a Jazz player. What would Malone be without this guy's dimes?

He holds the NBA's record for most career assists (15,806) by a margin of more than 3,000, as well as the record for most career steals (3,265). He had five of the top six assists seasons in NBA history - TwJaGd
