Carl Malone, the league’s famous iron man, also has a unique habit. Malone will only wear a pair of socks in a season, because Malone’s mother warns him that things must be repaired if they are broken, so that there will be good luck.
So every season, Malone will only wear a pair of socks when he plays, and if he breaks, he will make up for himself. In addition, every time Malone stood on the free throw line, he always read words.
In 1997, “Salt Lake City Tribune” specially invited two masters who can read lips to decipher. The conclusion is that Malone is talking to his son (also called Karl), “This is dedicated to Carl, Carl, my baby. Son.”
