Jazz owner, Karl Malone kiss and make up (figuratively)

Remember earlier this season when Jazz legend Karl Malone and Jazz owner Greg Miller were feuding over how the firing of Jerry Sloan went down and loyalty within the organization. Thing is the Sloan issue was a year old and Sloan himself had to tell them to shut up already.

Well, if all of that slipped your mind don’t worry about it.

Miller and Malone have buried the hatchet and moved on, according to the Salt Lake Tribune.

Miller and Malone exchanged smiles and warmly embraced Wednesday night in an EnergySolutions tunnel, minutes before the Jazz tipped off against the Phoenix Suns.

“Karl and I have got it worked out and everything’s good,” Miller said.

The reunion came not so coincidentally on the night David Stern was in Salt Lake City — he had asked that the two resolve their dispute as well. Malone and Miller had a 75-minute meeting back in February, and between whatever was said then and some time to cool down, everything seems good now. Or at least civil.

If marriage has taught me one thing, it’s to really pick your battles. This seemed a silly fight to have in the first place.

    Karl Malone is trash as a human being. That is all.

      Can’t say I disagree all that much. For anyone who disagrees, look up the story of Demetress (aka Demetrius) Bell, who recently signed with the Philadelphia Eagles after several years with the Buffalo Bills. Malone was a heck of a basketball player, but he has a long way to go to earn my respect as far as his character.

        I commented on this last night but apparently Karl Malone was the blogger, because my comment was removed. That guy is trash. Dont forget he has a daughter in the WNBA that he also didnt take care of.

    Why does Herr Stern think he needs to stick his nose in everybody’s business?
