Today is Karl Malone's birthday. I would not be a Utah Jazz fan if it was not for Karl Malone. He was the most dominant man at his peak, and was a quantum leap in terms of off-season training, in-season preparation, and on court destruction. He is a medical marvel, and my favorite player. He was a guy from a small town who had a work ethic so many people did not have, and under the brightest lights he shone like a diamond - for he was one. He may have started out as a hyper cluster of carbon, but through his dedication and trials in life he became a diamond.
What is a diamond? The hardest m'effing natural substance on this earth.
Karl Malone was as hard as it gets. (Vid by Adam / @ProdigalJF / Memoismoney on YT)
