According to ESPN, NBA Hall of Famer Karl Malone made $5 million from jersey and shoes auctioned items of a famous figure/teammate from the 1992 Dream Team...
quote:

"Utah Jazz legend Karl Malone recently auctioned off 24 pieces of memorabilia from the 1992 Summer Olympics USA Basketball "Dream Team" -- game-used jerseys and sneakers from all 12 members -- to the tune of $5 million.

"The bulk of those earnings from the auction with collectibles marketplace Goldin, unsurprisingly, came via Michael Jordan's No. 9 white jersey -- worn during the 127-76 dismantling of Lithuania in the semifinals. It sold for $3,003,000 -- a record for any game-used Olympics Jordan item. Jordan's game-worn sneakers from the 1992 Tournament of the Americas -- the pre-Olympics event where the Dream Team debuted -- sold for $420,000."

Malone needs to call Sabonis and thank him for having an off night.

And if he plays the game of his career, that 41 point loss is only a 25 point loss.

It's also not unusual for these guys to end up with a bunch of jerseys from other players. If you watch the end of NFL and other games pros trade jerseys all the time.

So...how did he acquire all of these guys clothes? Did MJ ration his stuff out to his teammates every game?

Like finding buried treasure.

Watch King of Collectibles on Netflix, they show the deal on there. Said his wife went through and picked up all the dirty uniforms at the end of the game and kept them.

Maybe he can use it to pay some of that child support he owes.
