The Mailman Delivers a Surprise

Karl Malone eventually showed up for John Stockton and Jerry Sloan’s big moment: “Having a stepfather on life support prevented Karl Malone from attending Friday’s induction of his Utah Jazz teammate John Stockton and coach Jerry Sloan to the Basketball Hall of Fame, but Malone surprised them by flying in for Saturday night’s HOF dinner. ‘My stepfather Ray is on life support,’ Malone said at the Mohegan Sun Resort & Casino after flying in from his home in Louisiana. ‘My family and I decided to get away from that for a few hours and come here and then go right back.’ Malone’s absence on Friday was attributed to ‘an illness in the family’ by Stockton in his induction speech without any further details.”

    Nice gesture from Mailman, i mean given the circumstances. With all the dirty laundry that has been aired out about him after his career ended, it’s nice to have a small break from the Karl Malone negativity.

    I wish my stepfather was on life support. “What, someone pulled the plug out?” “Wasn’t me sir, must have been that shifty nurse”.
