Karl Malone quotes :
Sometimes, you follow your dreams. I say to the young people, 'If you have a dream, chase it.'Karl Malone
I don't know what my label is. I just think of myself as a plain forward. I like to think I have some finesse to my game, but inside the paint is where men are made. If you can't play there, you should be home with your mama.Karl Malone
