SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Utah Jazz legend Karl Malone asked the former NBA superstars and Hall of Famers on the Twitter live to keep his head coach Jerry Sloan in their thoughts and prayers.

The NBA Twitter page hosted a live stream with former reporter and host Ahmad Rashad as he was joined by Malone, John Stockton and other NBA Hall of Famers.

At the end of the broadcast, the guys were showing their appreciation for one another as they were saying goodbye. Malone asked the players one thing at the end.

“I need to say this because I know that (John) Stockton and I have been talking a lot recently,” Malone stated. “Coach (Jerry) Sloan is not doing well, so I want you guys to pray for coach Sloan.

Malone also showed his appreciation for the players that they spent the last hour exchanging stories with.

“I want to say this, Stock, you already know how I feel about you, you know I love you to death,” Malone said. “All of the other guys here, you guys brought out the best in us. You guys brought out the best in the Utah Jazz and myself. I am grateful for you guys, you guys made me the player that I was.”

The panel had many players going in and out of the stream as it was broadcast on periscope on the NBA Twitter page. Malone, Stockton and Rashad were joined by Charles Barkley, Shawn Kemp, Dikembe Mutombo, Mitch Richmond, David Robinson, Dominique Wilkins, Clyde Drexler, Shaquille O’Neal, Gary Payton, Dell Curry, Reggie Miller, Patrick Ewing, Glen Rice and many more.
