Moses Malone Rumors
NBA legend Nate “Tiny” Archibald has been living with an incurable heart disease for more than a year, the 69-year-old retired Hall of Fame player revealed to ESPN’s Jackie MacMullan. Motivated by the recent deaths of peers Moses Malone, Darryl Dawkins and Dwayne “Pearl” Washington as well as health statistics provided by the National Basketball Players Association, Archibald underwent a health screening in December 2016 and was diagnosed with amyloidosis — an as-yet irreversible protein buildup that prevents his heart from properly pumping blood to his body.
Justin Kubatko: The @Charlotte Hornets Dwight Howard has 252 career games with at least 15 points and 15 rebounds. The only player with more such games since the ABA-NBA merger is Moses Malone. #BuzzCity
Alykhan Bijani: James Harden has just set the #Rockets franchise record for the most consecutive games scoring 20+ points in a single season with 30. The previous mark was 29 games by Moses Malone during the 1981-82 season.
He talks to retired stars such as Clyde Drexler and Dominique Wilkins, who stress to him the importance of a post-basketball career. He’ll dial up Moses Malone, who introduced him to golf and even Spencer Haywood, who became the first underclassman to play in the NBA after a landmark Supreme Court case. “Have a plan,” said Billups. “Boredom is what gets you in trouble.” He’ll always have golf. And he’s getting better.
