Before there was Tim Duncan, Blake Griffin, Dirk Nowitzki, and Kevin Garnett, there was Karl Malone.
For 18 years he poured his heart and soul for the Utah Jazz and became an unstoppable force in the paint. He, along with John Stockton, made the Jazz a perennial playoff team and even guided Utah to the NBA Finals in 1997 and 1998. And though he never won an NBA title, he is considered one of the best power forwards to even grace the hardwood.
Though his career with Utah will always be tied to Stockton, he made a mark in the NBA and with the Jazz and was inducted into the NBA Hall of Fame in 2010 and was a part of the 1992 Olympic "Dream Team."

Elton Brand started in Dirk Nowitzki's place as the Mavericks wrapped up their European Vacation earlier this week. While the power forward switch had to do with Dirk's swollen knee, it meant some extra work for Brand with the first unit.
That's where Brand feels the most comfortable, though he knows that won't be his role in Dallas. He's a backup now, at least...

What I find especially cool is that ballers can use the Nike+ technology to check their performance at the end of the day.” - Dirk Nowitzki
