It’s a sad day for OG basketball fans. NBA legend Moses Malone has died. He was 60-years-old. 

Reports ESPN:

Three-time NBA MVP and Pro Basketball Hall of Famer Moses Malone has died Sunday at the age of 60.

Malone, named one of the NBA’s 50 greatest players, was the Finals MVP as he led the Philadelphia 76ers to the 1983 championship.

The 6-foot-10 center, nicknamed the “Chairman of the Boards,” averaged a double-double while playing for eight teams over 20 NBA seasons and led the league in rebounding six times. The 12-time All-Star averaged 20.6 points per game and 12.2 rebounds over his career.

Malone was drafted by the Utah Stars of the American Basketball Association straight out of high school in 1974.

Rest in power.
