I miss those days when Karl and company were on the floor. Period.

What a great session. Love it!

Gone are the days! Never to be the same!

Today's teams don't hold a candle.

That's my take.

Haven't watched a full NBA game since Jerry Sloan retired, and the current Jazz team ... well ... it's not like it used to be in the whole NBA.

I kind of feel sorry for those who haven't had a chance to be crazy fans as we all were during those Stockton, Malone, Sloan, BRuss, Horny, etc. etc. years. I love anything I can read or hear about any of those people. So many memories and feelings! I know it's probably not good or healthy to relive the past, but those times were too good to put on the back burner (for me anyway). Nonetheless, I am a devoted fan of the current kids and am cheering for their progress and success wherever they end up (I hope with us).

Go Jazzboys! Enjoy your time off but don't be slugs......


With Karl Malone you always knew where you stood. He didnt beat around the bush or talk behind some one's back, he just said it...straight out. It will be a while before the Jazz will have the likes of Stockton, Malone and Horecek playing for them.

How about the Jazz radio play-by-play announcer, who started when the Jazz were still in New Orleans, Hot Rod Hundley. His colorful descriptions of the play-by-play are classic. We'll never ever have such an announcer as he was. When he was a player, he was one of a kind. Once, when he got to the 3 throw line to attempt a foul shot, he turned around, facing away from the basket, and made the 3 throw as he pitched the ball underhanded, backwards over his head. I noticed the other night, while attending the Philadelphia game, that he has a banner hung in the rafters of the Energy Solutions Center along with the great Jazz players and coaches. Well deserved as are all of the banners hung there.

Nobody does a stream-of-conscious interview quite like Karl. He is definitely an acquired taste. But behind the rambling colloquialisms is a man who definitely has something worthwhile to say. He's like the crazy uncle everyone loves to make fun of at reunions, but who nonetheless seems have more common sense than the rest of the members of the family combined.
