At SeatGeek, we were sad to read this story in the Salt Lake Tribune that Karl Malone--a former Utah Jazz legend and NBA Hall of Famer--was forced to buy his own ticket to a Jazz game last February played in the wake of Jerry Sloan's dismissal as the Jazz coach.
According to the Tribune:
What happened to Sloan had festered inside Malone for long enough. In the immediate aftermath, he came to Utah to express concern, buying his own ticket to the next game at EnergySolutions Arena via a scalper because the Jazz had told him there were no tickets available for him, and spoke to reporters.
In light of this report that an NBA legend wasn't able to easily obtain tickets to see the very team he helped bring to prominence, we here at SeatGeek felt compelled to offer our assistance.
As such, we want to formally extend Mr. Malone the offer of four (4) lower-level tickets to any Jazz home game this season, as well as four (4) lower-level Jazz tickets to be donated to the charity of Mr. Malone's choosing.
At SeatGeek, we’re all about making sure that fans—from the layman to the Mailman—have easy access to the best deals on tickets to see their favorite teams, so we are serious in this offer and hope to soon send Mr. Malone and his favorite charity some great seats to see the Jazz in action this season.
