Isiah Thomas said Karl Malone was the weakest link Isiah Thomas did not hold back on the premier of NBA TV’s “Open Court.” The show, which is in its third season, features TNT’s Ernie Johnson, Charles Barkley, Kenny Smith and Shaquille O’Neal. Isiah’s comments on the show’s first episode will surely make the premier a must watch. Thomas while talking about the Utah Jazz said that Karl Malone essentially cost Utah a championship. Because Malone wasn’t a good foul shooter, Thomas felt that was the reason they didn’t beat the Chicago Bulls. Kenny Smith also chimed in and said had Malone hit his free throws, they would have beaten his Houston Rockets one year. “I thought Utah, going back to that team, I thought they had everything it took to win a championship,” he said. “They had the system, the players, the toughness, they were defensive-minded and everything. I always thought like Malone was the weakest link because he wasn’t a good foul shooter. Had he been a good foul shooter they would have beat Chicago.” Check out the full clip here: H/T Sekou Smith’ NBA Hangtime Blog The post Isiah Thomas rips Karl Malone: “Malone was the weakest link” (VIDEO) appeared first on Pass The Pill - Kings of Hoops.
