If you think Portland's ownership and front office can look dysfunctional and petty at times, just look at the Utah Jazz, who are often considered one of the most stable, well-run franchises in the NBA. We all know about the Sloan fiasco last year. Apparently Malone recently said Sloan was handcuffed by management, who chose Williams over Sloan. Malone also said he had to buy tickets to a Jazz game from a scalper. New Jazz owner, Greg Miller, has gone nuts attacking Malone. First he wrote a Dan Gilbert'esque twitter post calling Malone a liar (in regard to the ticket) issue: "Hey Karl - you're lying. You have my number. Next time you need a seat to a Jazz game, call me. You can have mine." Now Miller's written a blog post calling Malone "too unreliable and too unstable" to be an assistant coach with the team. Miller goes on to say: "The fact is Karl is still as high-maintenance as he ever was, but now he has nothing to offer to offset the grief and aggravation that comes with him." Frankly, I think it's stupid to publicly lambast one of your past employees, regardless of whether you're right or not. The fact that Malone is one of the Jazz's all-time greats makes this that much more foolish. I know we want to get the dirt on what went down with KP, Penn, and even Cho, but perhaps we should be thankful Blazers' management generally knows to stay silent when it has nothing nice to say.
