what a barkley-jocker...we all know charles was the first NBA player to say he was going to run for governor...

http://www.cnn.com/2002/ALLPOLITICS/...nor/index.html

By Robert Yoon
CNN Washington Bureau

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Utah Jazz star forward Karl Malone, known to fans as "the Mailman," is considering running for governor of Arkansas once he retires from professional basketball, his agent told CNN Tuesday.

Malone, a Republican, has no immediate plans to retire but has often discussed his plans to return to Arkansas, where he owns a large cattle ranch, to seek political office, according to Dwight Manley, Malone's agent.

Malone began fueling speculation of a possible political career last year after a visit to the White House.

"He's a natural leader," said Manley. "He's got a lot of ideas, and this is what he says he wants to do."

Malone, a two-time NBA most valuable player, has played for the Jazz since 1985 and has occasionally dabbled in Republican politics.

He campaigned in Iowa in 1999 for Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch's short-lived presidential bid and headlined a 2000 fund-raiser with National Rifle Association President Charlton Heston for a Utah congressman. Malone is an NRA member and a vocal gun rights supporter.

He has never held political office.

Newspapers in Salt Lake City have speculated that Malone may run for governor of Utah as early as 2004, but Manley said that is unlikely.

"I don't know that he'll retire by 2004. He said he wants to be governor of Arkansas. He wants to get back closer to his roots," said Manley.

Malone was born in Louisiana and attended Louisiana Tech. His Arkansas ranch is near the Louisiana border.

What I am about to tell you is no joke. I saw it on NBC news. The Arkansas governor was living in trailer home last year. I kid you not.

Did you guys know Karl Malone has a daughter who plays basketball at LA Tech?

Her name is Cheryl Ford and she is a 6'3" junior center.

She was born in June 1981 when Karl was 17 years old!

She was the WAC player of the year this season with conference stats of 14.5 points, 10.4 rebounds and 2.0 blocks per game. She will likely be in the WNBA next season.

I'd rather have Barkley as the Republican candidate rather than Malone.

Damn.

Malone's demeanor and image around the league (with the players) must be driving many to the Democratic party.

Yeah, he fathered her when he was a college freshman. Her mother was 12 or 13 years old at the time. He also had a son by the same girl....er, 'woman'. Then he went off to make his millions in the NBA and forgot about them all. He was finally forced to take some responsibility due to various media reports about his failure to do so.

"Malone, a Republican"

That explains it.
