When the Utah Jazz announced that Karl Malone would coach their big men on a part-time basis, it stood out as a strong move for all involved parties. The Jazz were able to bring the greatest player in their history back into the fold in an official capacity, Malone could develop some skills if he chose to pursue coaching full-time, and youngsters Derrick Favors and Enes Kanter could learn a thing or two. The only question was how much work Malone would actually do, and how involved he’d get in these players’ development.
The answer, apparently, is quite a bit. As seen on the Instagram account of Karl’s wife Kay, the Mailman took the 21-year-old Turkish national Kanter fishing for the first time. Young Enes caught a fish, too, although it does not appear particularly large.
