Moses Malone Rumors
James needs a basket to surpass Malone (27,409 points) as the eighth leading scorer in history. Way, way back when, on Oct. 29, 2003, to be precise, on the afternoon of James’ first game as a pro, in Sacramento, Malone joined James in his hotel room for a pre-game meal and chat that James remembers today. “Just talked about what it’s like to be a rookie in the league,” James said before the Cavs’ morning shootaround in Milwaukee. “He gave me a bunch of stories, and so it was very sad when I seen him pass.
The son of the late Houston Rockets legend Moses Malone has filed a lawsuit against a nightclub on the Richmond Strip where last month he was attacked and robbed. On June 25, Moses Malone, Jr., was jumped by several people outside the V Live Houston club, 16213 Richmond.
Barkley was asked about it on SportsCenter — is this true? And Barkley confirmed: Williams was telling the truth. Chuck says: “That’s the truth. When I got to Philadelphia, Dr. J, Moses Malone, Maurice Cheeks—they never practiced. They’d sit on the side, on the stationary bike, eating McDonald’s. So once I had been in the league X amount of years, I adopted that philosophy. I had played 48 minutes the night before, I wasn’t going to get up the next morning and go to practice.”
The son of NBA royalty says he was held at gunpoint and robbed outside a popular after-hours club. Now he’s in hiding. According to Houston police, Moses Malone Jr., son of NBA great Moses Malone, was attacked in the parking lot of V Live Houston. It happened around 2:45am on Saturday at the club on the Richmond strip in southwest Houston.
According to the NBA, scheduled to receive screenings are Tony Delk, Bernard King, Johnny Davis, Andrew Lang, Lee Davis, Sedric Toney, Victor Alexander, Cal Bowdler, Litterial Green, Marvin Roberts, Daune Causwell, Duane Ferrell, Jim Washington, Rick Brown, Harold Keeling, Reginald Johnson, Dale Ellis, Tyrone Brown, Kevin Willis and Jay Bilas. The event is closed to the public. Former Hawk and Basketball Hall of Famer Moses Malone died suddenly in September of cardiovascular disease.

Both members of that starting backcourt — Dennis Johnson and Danny Ainge — suffered heart attacks. Ainge had his at age 50 and survived; DJ, at age 52, did not. Add Kevin McHale’s now permanently impaired foot and Bird’s and Walton’s struggles, and the nucleus of one of the greatest teams of all time is, 30 years later, deeply damaged goods.’ Bird, who turned 59 in December, says more research is clearly needed. “I have my own philosophies on that,” Bird says. “Guys that played the hardest in the league — big guys who ran their asses off — they are the ones in the most danger, I feel. Moses was one of those competitors. We build our hearts up when we are playing and then we quit performing at a high level, and our hearts just sit there. I don’t work out like I used to. I can’t. I can’t go out and run. I jog and have a little sauna, that’s about it. My body won’t let me do more than that.”
