Did you ever hear the story about the time Jeff Van Gundy’s Honda Civic got flipped onto Brendan Malone’s brand-new Mercedes by a jet blast from the Knicks’ charter plane?
Do you remember the 1996 Western Conference finals when Karl Malone was taking so long to shoot free throws, the fans in Seattle counted to 10 while he prepared to shoot? The Jazz lost that series in Game 7 at Key Arena when Malone missed two big shots from the line at the end of the fourth quarter.
Gordon Monson of the Salt Lake City Tribune remembered that I covered that series carrying a duffel bag, rather than a suitcase, which I did because I could fit a basketball inside the duffel bag.
Plus, I didn’t own a suitcase.
Monson, co-host Jake Scott and I talked tonight about those old stories, as well as how the 66-game season will impact the Utah Jazz and other teams in this year’s NBA playoff race, on 97.5 FM and 1280 AM The Zone. Click here to listen to the interview.
