    Good Job Greg, get it out in the open before Malone does what he always did while he was here.

    Karl tells us that he is always a friend and ever loyal to those he wants to be friends with and he mnentions Jerry. While he played he often threatend to walk away if he did not get paid more, went on radio in LA more or less behind Larry's back and told the world he was looking for a new contract because of the poor way he had been treated while playing as a Jazz member.

    That was years before he finally left.

    Like Charles Barkley and Dennis Rodman, Karl did very well on the court but when they have a chance to gain headlines or get behind a mike they become loose cannons.

    Imagine saying you have not been treated right or well by Larry Miller when you were the face of his franchise. Excuse me Karl if I have to grease my throat to swallow that story.

    Karl has made mention of wanting to coach for years but nobody and I repeat nobody wants what he has got in their organization.

    Now he re-appears and gets attention he has been missing/craving, it is too sad he throws the Jazz organization under the bus to pursue his own interests ...but in reality they should not be surprised.

    Miller is making a large mistake attacking Karl Malone. He's a hall-of-famer and made the Jazz what they are today. No reason to call him unreliable and unstable, because for so long he was Mr. Reliable and Mr. Stable in a tumultuous NBA. It feels like Miller has disrespected him without just cause. I would think most Jazz fans know that Sloan is not a quitter and he wouldn't have quit mid-season without a good reason. He built a legacy based on toughness and never giving up. Malone may be a former player, but players look to their organization for support...all that has been shown here sadly is a lack of leadership from ownership.

    If you've ever worked with Karl and observe his history in dealing with authority you'll find he's like dealing with a petulant 8 year old. What would be nice is if he'd just go away quietly.
