The plot continues to thicken around Karl Malone. Sources say he is closing in on 100 percent recovered from offseason knee surgery, and his children have enrolled in school in their home near Newport Beach, Calif. The question is whether he is going to take a full shot at earning that elusive championship ring and ringing up the 1,460 points necessary to pass Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as the NBA's all-time leading scorer. Evidently, the Mailman will stay put with the Los Angeles Lakers if the scoring record and keeping his family in one place is the priority, or he will play for the San Antonio Spurs or Minnesota Timberwolves if he wants to win a championship.
 

The Miami Heat seemingly are no longer serious contenders, the Timberwolves usurping their position. And now the stories start coming out of the woodwork, such as one that Kevin Garnett, Flip Saunders and Kevin McHale were headed to California in a state of woo to meet with Malone. Then again, Garnett is at the U.S. Open in New York ... at least he was in the crowd Thursday. Another source said he's headed to Europe from there. If Malone wants to get a ring, then he'll leave the Lakers, who he played only 42 games for last season after the first knee injury of his 19-year career. If it comes down to the Spurs or Timberwolves, he could tip the scales in favor of whichever team lands him. Being from the south and liking warm weather -- and then there's playing with Tim Duncan -- should push the needle in favor of the Spurs. But K.G., Flip and McHale are very persuasive fellows with a team that is on the brink of great things too. This is all assuming, of course, that the Mailman is willing to make deliveries away from his wife and children ... or uproot them for the second time in two years.

I personally hope that he goes to either Minnesota or San Anton. I think playing next to Duncan would be a more likely guarantee of a ring, but you can't argue with KG...

True, they've got a better team now than 2 years ago, I'd say. But with the other teams in the conference, I call it a great year if they make it to the conference finals.
