Super teams don't always bring super results. … The Lakers' supposedly unbeatable trio of Wilt Chamberlain , Jerry West and Elgin Baylor played three seasons together without winning a championship. … By 1972, when the Lakers finally won, Baylor had retired. … Michigan's Fab Five — Chris Webber , Jalen Rose , Juwan Howard , Jimmy King and Ray Jackson — never won a Big Ten championship, much less a national title.

Bryant, 20 games into his 14th season with the Lakers, won the award for the first time two seasons ago. . . . The only other player to capture the honor so late in his career was Michael Jordan , who hauled off the last of his five MVP awards in his 13th season with the Chicago Bulls. . . . The Clippers have stayed close enough to give fans hope that a playoff run with Blake Griffin is still a possibility.

Karl Malone is suing Dada Footwear, charging the Los Angeles shoe company has failed to pay him $65,000 owed under an endorsement contract. The suit claims that Dada agreed to make three payments of $25,000 to Malone during the 2003-04 regular season and an additional $40,000 for playing in the NBA Finals, a figure derived from a scale of postseason bonuses that increased as the Lakers advanced in the playoffs. The Lakers lost to the Detroit Pistons in the NBA Finals.

Karl Malone, who spent 18 seasons with the Utah Jazz before joining the Lakers for an eventful yet unfulfilled final season, will announce his retirement Sunday in Salt Lake City. Malone, 41, scored 36,928 points, second to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in NBA history, and carried a reputation of being unafraid to throw an elbow if it helped get a rebound or clear space on the way to the basket. And that, he said Friday, was how he wanted to be remembered.

Following a visit with the Spurs on Saturday, Karl Malone's agent said Monday that if Malone decides to play again, it probably will be for San Antonio. Malone, 41, is expected to make an announcement about his future before the Feb. 18-20 All-Star break, perhaps even this week. "If he would choose to play, the likeliest candidate would be the Spurs, which is a team he almost played for a year and a half ago," Dwight Manley said.
