NBA legend Moses Malone has died, according to reports.

He was 60.

Malone, a three-time NBA MVP and NBA Hall of Famer, was nicknamed the “Chairman of the Boards” for his amazing rebounding ability and ability for double-doubles (double digits in two statistics, such as points and rebounds).

The 6-foot-10 center began his career in the ABA, which merged with the NBA in 1976.

Malone went on to play for the Houston Rockets, Philadelphia 76ers, Washington Bullets, Atlanta Hawks and Milwaukee Bucks, before retiring with the San Antonio Spurs in 1995.

The 12-time NBA All-Star was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2001 and his No. 24 was retired by the Rockets.
