He helped Julius Erving win his only NBA title. He boldly predicted the Sixers championship run with the slogan ” Fo, Fo, and Fo” indicated Sixers would sweep all the series. The Sixers came close losing only one playoff game en route to the ’82-83 title.  He helped Charles Barkley grow from the ‘Round Mound of Rebound’ to one of the greatest NBA players ever. Malone played with and impacted some of the greatest front court men in NBA history including Ralph Sampson in Houston, Dr, J and Barkley while on the 76ers, Terry Cummings in Milwaukee, David Robinson in San Antonio, and Dominique Wilkins here in Atlanta. A 3 time NBA MVP, one of the greatest rebounders ever. The Chairman Of the Boards will be missed by all he played with and against.

God bless his family, friends, fans, and former teammates during their time of grief
