“The potential is the sky’s the limit with that team,” Coleman said of a team featuring Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant, the latter currently under COVID-19 quarantine. “I just see the struggles right now just going to be better for you later on in the season. Just have to keep continuing to work. “Kevin [Durant] is going to be one of the greatest scores we’ve ever seen play the game. To me right now, nobody can mess with Kyrie Irving; he comes from a lineage of point guards. When your godfather is Rod Strickland, I need not say any more about that. But we have to really concentrate and focus on the defensive end of the basketball court and talking.”

Of his many claims, many of which were spot on, Malone listed three fellow power forwards who had more God-given ability than he did, but didn’t quite reach the same level of play. “I’m going to tell you three guys that had more talent than Karl Malone — Chris Webber, Derrick Coleman and Charles Barkley,” Malone said. “More talent. More talent. But, they didn’t outwork me.” Malone began lifting weights during his time at Louisiana Tech. He was an NBA strongman and the use of weight training helped him stay healthy and on the court during his 19-season Hall of Fame career. “I would never use the term, ‘He was better than me,’” Malone explained. “More talented is different.”
He is just the 15th SU basketball player — the 10th in the Jim Boeheim Era — to earn such recognition. Joining the likes of Dave Bing, Kendall’s Roosevelt Bouie, Louis Orr, Pearl Washington, Carmelo Anthony, Lawrence Moten and his boyhood heroes, Derrick Coleman and Billy Owens.
Detroiter Derrick Coleman was selected first overall in the 1990 NBA draft by the New Jersey Nets, but not many know he played for 10 years with congestive heart failure. “I was diagnosed in 1995 while I was still playing,” said Coleman, now retired. “I know it looks like athletes have it all together, I thought I was Superman, but I wasn’t. Now, I bring awareness to testing, diet, exercising and advocacy for heart patients.”
