Lillard comments that "the last thing he'd want to do is be one of those guys that never won a ring" with Tomlinson and Sanders taking immediate offense. He corrects himself, stating "he meant one of those basketball players that never won a ring," earning umbrage and a sideways glare from Webber. Finally, he throws out "he meant one of those legends that lost in the Finals over and over."
Malone then comes inside from the patio with a plate of burgers, sulking off into the kitchen as Sanders calls after him, "Karl, Karl!"
Funny now, but a raw nerve for some Jazz fans to this day after a certain 1998 jumpshot.
For the second commercial, Malone joins a litany of NBA legends in a Bud Light "up for whatever" ad. Set in New Orleans during the NBA All-Star Game, Malone arrives dressed in a mailman outfit, proclaiming "special delivery" as he gives two NBA fans tickets and passes to multiple All-Star events.
Both commercials show Malone has some acting and comedy chops, and that he's come a long way from producing workout infomercials in the late '90s.
