Karl Malone being old-school, praising his flip phone, calling it “masterpiece”

Karl Malone is long gone from playing in the NBA, but he’s still present at the Utah Jazz home games. And he’s recently been interviewed during Utah’s game against Atlanta Hawks.

Malone proudly displayed his flip phone during the interview, saying he’s “old school”. Using flip phones today is definitely old school.

“What you guys don’t realize, this is a masterpiece. It’s kind of like anything else. You keep it long enough, it’s going to come back in style – kind of like bell bottoms,” Malone said.

Malone spent his first 18 seasons (1985–2003) in the National Basketball Association (NBA) with the Utah Jazz and formed a formidable duo with his teammate John Stockton.

He was a two-time NBA Most Valuable Player, a 14-time NBA All-Star, and an 11-time member of the All-NBA first team.

The Hall of Famer Malone played a total of 1476 NBA games (starting in 1471), holding career averages of 25.0 ppg, 10.1 rpg and 3.6 apg in 37.2 minutes of playing time.

Malone scored the second most career points in NBA history (36,298), and holds the records for most free throws attempted and made. He is generally considered one of the greatest NBA power forwards.
