Moses Malone, R. I. P.

 NY Daily News: Moses Malone, a man of few words and many rebounds, died Sunday at age 60. 

Malone was the first player to come right out of high school into the pros, signing with the Utah Stars of the American Basketball Association when that league was at war with the NBA. But he made his name later in the NBA, after the leagues’ merger. He led an otherwise mediocre Houston Rockets team to the NBA Finals in 1981 and then brought a championship to the Philadelphia 76ers as the Finals MVP in 1983.
