I met Karl Malone many years ago when he had a shop in Utah. My dad saw his car outside, so we decided to stop in, we went in my Dad bought me and my brother a poster, and as he was paying for it Karl came out and saw the poster and asked if wanted an autograph. Obviously we said yes and it now reads "To Ben and Joe, Karl Malone." Also, this year after the Jazz lost to the Timberwolves and were cut from the playoffs, my friends and I went to the airport where the Jazz land and waited for them to come out, we saw all the players but only a few stopped. It was cool because Andrei Kirilenko, Sasha Pavlovic, and Jerry Sloan stopped. They were all really nice. I had them sign a basketball of mine. Andrei Kirilenko apoligized for not making the playoffs and was very kind. Sasha was a little put out, and didn't seem to speak much english. And Sloan stopped and joked with us about the other players not stopping. It was great. Andrei's liscense plate says "AK 47" it was cool.
