Sloan: Malone a ‘coach’s dream’
“There’s little doubt that Karl is one of the game’s all-time greatest players and power forwards,” Sloan said in an interview with The Ruston Daily Leader on Tuesday, “but what made him great was more than just what he did in a game.
“He carried the same type of competitiveness and passion into every practice. With Karl, you knew he would be game-ready because he had already prepared himself with relentless competitiveness in our practices. Every coach out there wishes he had somebody like a Karl Malone. He was a coach’s’ dream.”
