Jason Terry admits to being a bit biased, but the former Mavericks guard believes ex-teammate Dirk Nowitzki will go down in history as a better power forward than Karl Malone. “Karl Malone never won a championship,” Terry said, “and to me, unless you win a championship and you put up the number Dirk has and you lasted as long as he has with the same organization, [Nowitzki] gets the nod for me personally.”
Of all his earthly possessions lost to Katrina’s flood in 2005, the one Richard Coffey wishes he had right now is a program from a long-ago basketball tournament. For years he had kept the program as proof that once he was part of a magnificent teenage team – one so good that 37 years later he breathes his teammates’ names as if the whole thing had been a dream.

One day, in the late 1980s, not long after he had been cut by the Philadelphia Eagles, Wenzel was visiting a couple of friends in New Jersey when one glanced up from a newspaper he was reading and said, “Jeff, this Mailman is unbelievable.” Wenzel glanced around, confused. “What’s wrong? Is your mail not coming?” he asked. The man laughed. “No,” he said. “Karl Malone. He plays for the Utah Jazz. They call him The Mailman because he always delivers. He went to Louisiana Tech.
