He may be dirty, but he worked damn hard even with the knee injury and assumed the "wise old veteran" role rather well this season. Nuff respect Mailman.

EDIT:

And just as I posted this, ESPN sez that his agent says the above report is premature.

Of course at this point, I only believe "retirements" when the season starts and the guy isn't playing. Call it the Clemens rule...

But would it surprise anybody, if he truly wants to play, if Malone showed up back in Utah under the million-dollar exemption?

I would be throughly suprised if he returned to play for Utah. He's already shown that he's more about winning than money, so I cant see why he'd relocate his whole family all over again back to sorry-ass Utah, just to play for the same salary he was getting with the Lakers on top of that.

I'd sooner expect him to be a Spur. They have tons of cap room and he could come off the bench to play the four and five.
