Karl Malone and Greg Miller finally meet

Jazz CEO Greg Miller chats with Hall of Famer Karl Malone after the Utah-San Antonio game. Miller approached The Mailman, and the two had a brief conversation before the Jazz boss headed to the locker room. After chatting with fans and posing for numerous photos, Malone then went into the Jazz coaches’ office to have a chat with Miller.

*UPDATE: Here is the video of Miller and Malone after their hour-plus meeting taken by Deseret News online guru Brandon Brown:

The relationship between Malone and Miller became strained recently after they had a public war of words a couple of weeks ago (click here for the venting blog). Miller called Malone out for “lying” about having to buy scalped tickets to get into a Jazz game. The Jazz CEO also called Malone “unstable.”

Malone railed on management for not supporting Hall of Fame coach Jerry Sloan, saying that Utah brass chose Deron Williams over the 23-year Jazz bench boss.

As far as we know, this was the first time Miller and Malone have spoken since they publicly vented earlier this month.

    I like your comments on wtainng to be a winning franchise. I have watched the games from the 3rd row since I was 8yrs old. It has been up and down this year with emotion as the Jazz struggle. I agree with lots of fans who say they can take a hard played loss. What a fan can not take is a team who’s fan have more heart than they do. With a young team I think they need more pressure from their boss to win. Why don’t you bench the players that are not playing hard. Afraid of the loss??? Well I see comment after comment that the fans can take a loss as long as the team plays hard. The player I am most upset about watching is MEmo. I am a huge fan of Memo. But he will make or break the game. You can tell when he plays with heart . I also think that the coach needs to step up his drama from the side line. He hasn’t gotten kicked out of a game yet. Where is his passion for his team! Deron is the team leader, tell him to get his team pumped up! Half this game is about attitude! T. Bailey commemted last night they used to call Larry Miller the white Rhino you could hear him comming down the hall if their was laziness on the court. I am not saying that you need to be your Dad, but maybe just demand more of YOUR team! Let’s get some Heart on the court!
