Every month Utah Jazz player Ekpe Udoh's book club selects a book for its members to read and then discusses it over social media and in person.

On Friday, he asked for help picking the next book on Twitter. The choices were "The Autobiography of Malcolm X", "Becoming" or "The Sun Does Shine".

Two days later, Michelle Obama weighed in, pushing for her title, "Becoming".

Malcolm X's book won the vote, but Obama did get a concession.

A few hours later, Obama was trending on Twitter for her surprise appearence at the Grammys.

Pau Gasol compares Stockton and Malone to Gobert and Donovan

KUTH Univision 32 reporter and Utah Jazz Spanish radio broadcaster Francisco Vazquez asked Pau Gasol to compare Jazz legends John Stockton and Karl Malone to the team's newest stars, Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert.

"John Stockton and Karl Malone were an amazing duo, very hard to duplicate," Gasol said through Vazquez's interprataion of the interview conducted in Spanish. "Although Rudy and Donovan are two talented players and very young, they would need a career like they had of almost 19-20 years like Karl and John had, and they'd have to take their team to two finals like they did against Chicago in order to get to that level.

"We're talking about the two of the greatest players in NBA history, but they're good examples that these two young players should aspire to reach their level. These last two years have been good for Utah, but they're not yet at the top."
