received 69 first-place votes from a

in so well with Erving," Cunningham
said. "Having two players like that

other players in the NBA have, but he's
a special athlete and exemplifies what
you can do with hard work."
Cunningham said Malone has "a
great deal of pride and drive. He just
will not be denied."
