Karl Malone Responds After Being Called a ‘Liar’ by Jazz CEO

A week after Karl Malone called out the Jazz on Jerry Sloan’s exit, owner Greg Miller shot back at Malone, calling him “too unreliable and too unstable” to help the team as an assistant coach in a blog post Friday night. Miller also tweeted that Malone lied in an interview with the Salt Lake Tribune about having to use a scalper to purchase tickets to a Jazz game last season. The Mailman didn’t back down, though, speaking to Tribune again this afternoon and giving Jazz beat writer, Brian T. Smith, a couple strong comments in response to Miller’s assertions: “‘We’ve all become very brave when we’re tweeting, texting, blogging. We just write, press send. I don’t have time for that.’” [...] ‘Don’t tweet it, don’t blog it, don’t text it, give me a little human element. … I’m in town two or three times a month. Until I see [Miller] face to face, there won’t be any more comment about Greg Miller. … He’ll see me again.’”

    I could just picture Malone saying “I must break you” in Ivan Drago’s voice.

    Malone acts like he’s a stand up guy. He might be today. But there was a time when he wasn’t.

    Robb/Nerve: because he fathered a child with a 13 year old while he was 19 years old himself, and never contacted the kid or had anything to do with him. That’s a pretty terrible. Still, in this situation it seems like there’s little doubt that Miller is to blame.

    or maybe the Magic thing? That was a bit d-bagish, although in truth I think there was a lot still unknown about the HIV virus in those days.

    Two things.
    Karl Malone isn’t fighting anyone. And Karl Malone impregnated a 13 year old and never took care of his kids. And did the same thing to another woman and child.

    Word to TMay…

    Miller should watch out. Just ask isiah Thomas what happens when you make Karl angry

    I remember reading a hilarious story about Malone a long time ago. Karl was upset that Jordan was more popular and making way more money. Karl stormed into Larry Miller’s office, wripped his shirt off to show his muscles and yelled some stuff about being more handsome and muscular than Jordan, so he deserved a bigger contract.

    Malone wasn’t 19 when he got the girl pregnant. He was at least 20, possibly older.

    dude was a sophomore in college impregnating a 13-year old. Think about that. And that’s only one of the three kids he had out of wedlock that he didn’t support their entire childhood. Ain’t nothing stand up about a man like that. Nothing.
