Remembering Moses Malone - Relive The Top Moments Of His Career

NBA legend Moses Malone died this morning at just 60 years old. The cause of death is still unknown.

Malone is a Hall of Famer, three-time NBA MVP, and won the 1983 Finals MVP while leading the Philadelphia 76ers to a NBA title.

"It is with a deep sense of sadness that the Sixers family mourns the sudden loss of Moses Malone. It is difficult to express what his contributions to this organization -- both as a friend and player -- have meant to us, the city of Philadelphia and his faithful fans," the 76ers said in a statement Sunday.

"Moses holds a special place in our hearts and will forever be remembered as a genuine icon and pillar of the most storied era in the history of Philadelphia 76ers basketball. No one person has ever conveyed more with so few words - including three of the most iconic in this city's history. His generosity, towering personality and incomparable sense of humor will truly be missed. We will keep his family in our thoughts and prayers and as we are once again reminded of the preciousness of life."

Malone was one of the first players to play professional basketball right out of high school after being drafted by the ABA's Utah Stars in 1974.

He spent a year with the Stars and one with the Spirits of St. Louis before moving to the NBA, where he played for seven different teams from 1976-1995 - most notably the Houston Rockets (1976-1982) and the Sixers (1982-1986, 1993-1994).

Along with his three MVP awards, Malone was a four-time first-team All-NBA selection and 12-time All-Star.
