VIDEO: Karl Malone Calls Out Zion Williamson

The 'Mailman' Karl Malone is delivering some shade this week as the basketball legend is curious why a young Zion Williamson is out of shape and getting tired towards the end of the game. 

Malone thinks he should be playing 40 minutes a night and at his age, shouldn't be slowing down because of it. 

Remind yourself Zion is coming off surgery last year and it's still early in this basketball season. Malone spoke candidly on a recent podcast and had this to say:

I'm still waiting on him to play the whole damn season. News flash: We still waiting. And he needs to be averaging 40 minutes a game. Look here, you're a 21-, 22-year-old kid—your a** shouldn't get tired.

In a loss to the Utah Jazz on Tuesday, Williamson finished with 32 points five rebounds and three assists in 35 minutes on the court. Looks like Zion took two L's to the Jazz this week.
