Y’all remember Karl Malone elbowed Isiah Thomas and split him open. That’s right. Zeke was leaking. Before I was ever in the league, Zeke was leaking. I didn’t think I would ever be a part of the NBA. But I do remember him leaking. We played Utah. We are in Jersey. We on the break, John Stockton dropped that thang off to him, and I go right upside Karl Malone’s f****** head. Boom! Lay him out! He didn’t get up and do nothing. And I was like, ‘Oh, these MF’ers soft out here!’ And Jerry Sloan, God rest that man’s soul. He’s like, ‘Oh, you MF’er! I’d kick your a**!’ He tried to take up for him, but that was for Zeke.”
