21. Karl Malone
Myopic fans will tell you that Karl Malone never won an NBA title, and probably didn’t really deserve to win the first of his two MVP awards in 1997. But facts are facts: Malone scored 36,928 career points, which is 2nd-most in NBA history, only behind Kareem Abdul-Jabbar).
Malone also shares the record for the second-most first team All-NBA selections in the history of the league (tied with Kobe Bryant). “The Mailman” averaged 25 points and 10 rebounds a game over 18 years on the Jazz, and is widely regarded as both one of the greatest power forwards of not just his era, but of any NBA era in general.
