The Mailman will return to the Jazz next season in a part-time role to help coach Utah's big men. At 49, he hasn't lost a bit of his competitive fire.
How much hunting and fishing do you do?
KARL MALONE: I don't consider myself hunting and fishing. I consider myself catching and ... I can't say the other word. But contrary to what people think, I don't do it all the time. I just do a lot of it when I do it.
If you could bring someone hunting, who would it be?
KM: My former coach Jerry Sloan. If you were going to interview us, you'd have to have a 10-second delay.
Jason Kidd just retired. Whose career would you rather have had—Kidd's or Steve Nash's?
KM: John Stockton's.
He wasn't an option.
