Depending on your favorite shade of purple, Karl Malone either scored four miserable points on a horrible 2-for-9 shooting night in Game 1 of the 2004 NBA Finals or the future Hall of Famer simply added to his monstrous career playoff point total (4,745).

He is a despicable traitor of the utmost magnitude or he is the most honorable of power forwards looking to take his place among NBA champions.

In Utah, where he played for the Jazz for 18 seasons, it is one or the other.
