In case you didn’t know already know, Utah Jazz legend Karl Malone had joined his former team as a special assistant head coach and has been helping mold some of the young big men on the current squad.
Recently, Malone was asked by KSL’s Rod Zundel about his annual upcoming hunting trip in November and if he brought any of those tools trade with him to practice:
“To keep me from being late to practices I didn’t bring my [camouflage], gun or a bow. I left them home so my focus was to come here every day.” he said.
In case you wanted to know about the Jazz big men, here is Malone’s quote on that:
“The first day it was tough and trying,” Malone said. “I think our big guys don’t know the severity of what is in front of them and how serious this is. I wasn’t a happy camper. Then — it’s amazing — they came back, they’re here early; they want to do things. That’s rewarding to me.”
