SPRINGFIELD, Mass. — Karl Malone’s wide, rock-solid shoulders seemed to carry a lifetime journey of appreciation and humbleness for joining basketball’s most exclusive fraternity here Friday night.
Not only that, but it was a weekend of child-like fun that “The Mailman” delivered over and over at the 2010 induction ceremonies for the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.
Oh, and yes, there were some heartfelt, teary-eyed moments that the former Summerfield High School and Louisiana Tech University star passionately revealed when remembering the impact made on his life by his late mother, Shirley, who — ironically — had passed away seven years to the very day on which he was enshrined.
