ST. JOHNS, Antigua — The postman always rings twice — but is this the final round for Utah Jazz superstar Karl Malone? The 39-year-old is beginning his 18th season as an NBA pro and possibly his last in professional basketball. With a career total of 34,407 points, the Mailman is just a few seasons short of beating Kareem Abdul-Jabber’s NBA ‘All-Time Leading Scorer’ record of 38,387 points.
Will Malone take the ultimate Time Out and retire at the end of this season? Internet bookmakers, Intertops.com, have the action and it’s a close call.
“Malone doesn’t need to worry about his retirement fund. He stands to earn $19 million this season,” said Intertops.com Chief Bet Manager Michael Maerz. “This is probably Malone’s last year at Utah Jazz, but will he retire? He may be less than a year away from his fortieth birthday but he looks hungry and, with a 22.8 point average last year, it’s hard to imagine that he will be hanging up his trainers for good.”
Intertops.com is also offering props on Malone’s team, the Utah Jazz, making it to the play-offs and the Lakers extending their all-conquering, three-title run.
“NBA betting is big business for us,” said Maerz. “It’s quick, competitive, exciting and unpredictable. It can take just one on-form player to change a team’s fortunes. Could there be another Jordan waiting to take center stage in 2002/3?”
Get off the bench and into the game with these great bets from Intertops.com:
Will Karl Malone Retire before the beginning of Next Season?
Will the Utah Jazz make it to the Playoffs this Season?
Will the Los Angeles Lakers defend their Title this Season?
