Malone Says No To Wear Magic's #32

Malone Says No To Wear Magic's #32

Postby DMoNeY on Thu Jul 17, 2003 2:07 pm

At today's new conference to introduce Gary Payton & Karl Malone, Malone suprisedly decided not to wear Magic's # even though Karl has been wearing #32 for his entire career. Magic says he was totally surprised but didn't mind Karl wearing his #.

I think we have seen a completely different side of Karl Malone. His gestures these past few weeks have been amazing. He took less money, and he could have worn #32, but opted not to because of the sake of the fans and for Magic Johnson. I think our thinking about this guy has totally changed.

What a great addition to our team, and for the rest of the league, here is a message from the Lakers:

LET THE UNSTOPPABLE DYNASTY BEGIN

Yea the Lakers might only have payton and malone for one year only. they both can opt out next year. i just hope the Lakers will extend their contracts next year and pay a little bit more, payton is looking for one more big contract.

i saw the press conference and all this stuff.........i think he is still gunna wear #32. they wont have to bring down magic's number but he'll still wear #32. its not a crime if he does, especially even if magic is teh one behind it. this is what i understood from what i have read and seen.

The only thing I'll miss are his championship dances. But I think I just about shook my head every time he touched the ball.

It was a nice tribute to MAGIC that Malone gave... its nice that #32 stays retired.

Tight sig, just made that my new wallpaper.
How do I know Jesus loves me so much he doesn't want me working the whole weekend?
Exodus 31:15 Six days shall work be done, but the seventh day is a Sabbath of solemn rest, holy to the Lord. Whoever does any work on the Sabbath day shall be put to death.
Don't believe those lies, son! The only lies worth believing are the ones in the Bible! Can I get an amen?

Nice... But isn't Mad Dogg gone?

Oh well, 11 will look cool on Malone! Hell I don't even care about the number, the purple and yellow is what gets me...
