    He's now deader than the position he used play in the NBA. RIP, big fella.

    And only a couple of weeks after the passing of Darryl Dawkins at a similarly young age. No word yet on Malone's cause of death.

    I agree it's a cool nickname. I always liked Rod Langway's nickname too. He was known as the "Secretary of Defense."

    Malone and Dawkins were the first players to go straight from high school to the pros.

    Malone went to the ABA and Dawkins to the NBA
