NBA icon and Utah Jazz legend Karl Malone spent some time on the airwaves recently as The Mailman was a special guest on ESPN’s broadcast of the Utah Jazz-Golden State Warriors game.

Malone spoke about his former team but also the NBA in general and professed his love for Los Angeles Clippers power forward, Blake Griffin. Malone praised the former Oklahoma star for his game but also his temperament.

Griffin often finds himself as a target for opposing teams, always on the wrong end of hard fouls. Malone says he’s had enough of it though and suggested that Griffin needs to ‘go crazy’ the next time it happens and he’d pay his fine.

“I would love to spend some time with Blake Griffin,” Malone said. “I love that kid. First thing I’d do [is say], ‘Blake, the next time one guy cheap shots you, just lose your mind. I would pay your fine. Lose your mind, run roughshod … if a coach grab you, throw him too and say ‘I’m sorry coach.’
