A public feud between Jazz CEO Greg Miller and Hall of Fame forward Karl Malone is finally over.

Miller and Malone exchanged smiles and warmly embraced Wednesday night in an EnergySolutions tunnel, minutes before the Jazz tipped off against the Phoenix Suns.

"Karl and I have got it worked out and everything's good," Miller said.

The official reconciliation was announced during the same night NBA Commissioner David Stern visited ESA.

Stern told The Salt Lake Tribune on Feb. 6 he wanted Miller and Malone to calmly resolve their differences.

Malone attacked Miller during a January radio interview with a Tribune columnist, saying Utah's CEO and general manager Kevin O'Connor had undermined former coach Jerry Sloan.

Miller then called Malone out on Twitter before writing a long blog post ripping the player who teamed with John Stockton to take the Jazz to two NBA Finals.

Miller and Malone converged Feb. 20 after Utah lost to San Antonio at ESA. But they exited a 75-minute meeting saying little. Miller declined to comment, while Malone said the conversation was private.

Six weeks later, Miller and Malone are on better terms than at any point since Sloan resigned Feb. 10, 2011. And a smiling Miller said there's no more ill will between him and The Mailman.
