That last Ayton play was an example. Malone would have destroyed that defender on a dunk. Plus I don't remember how many times he would use those elbows to get space on that 15 foot jumper. He wasn't afraid to draw an offensive foul.

Swinging elbows isn’t aggressive play.

Malone was butter soft. Ask Rodman about him. Like it said as big and strong as he was his go to move was pick and roll fade away 15 footer

You might want to tell that to Malone's opponents.

Again throwing dirty elbows isn’t playing aggressive it’s dirty

@Finito

When did a 15 foot shot become a bad thing. What about his rebounding as well?

Would you rather have DLO or Collins?

These two guys are the names being linked.

Isiah Thomas not a fan of Karl Malone

Part of aggressiveness to me, is going beyond your comfort level of scoring. What I mean is Ayton thinks he's a 20 point scorer. When he hits twenty, he backs off his aggressiveness. I think Ayton thinks his job is done. Whereas guys like Barkley, Malone, Jordan, will keep on scoring past their average to win a game. They mentally will keep the foot on the pedal scoring. Whether it's using a 15 foot jumper, or a dunk. They use their best scoring weapon to keep scoring until the game is won.

Karl Malone averaged 9 free throw attempts per game. He was mentally soft, not physically.

Ayton is both.

Surprisingly Not really a great rebounder the first year they went to finals he only averaged 9 rebounds.

Barkley much smaller and always averaged more rebounds than Malone.

Cam is becoming such a good shooter, we need to keep him as a starter. Maybe Dlo as a sixth man is the way to go.

True. Barkley is underrated. Some of his playoff games are epic scoring AND rebounding. There's guys that say he was not as tall as listed. Which makes his on court feats even more impressive.

Looks like they are challenging that last play. I don't see how it was out on Ayton.

Maybe SA would trade McDermott. Would he be a good sixth man scorer for us?

You know what your right Malone was super strong mentally.
