Karl Malone Takes CloseUp360 on a Wild Buggy Ride in Louisiana

This summer, CloseUp360 ventured down to Ruston, Louisiana, to spend a weekend with Karl Malone. On a balmy Friday afternoon, the Hall of Famer took Amir Ebrahimi and Josh Martin out to one of his properties to ride around in his brand-new buggies.

But things didn't go quite as planned for "The Mailman" and his guests. Watch the video above to see what happened, and click here for the full story on how Karl and his family have built a budding empire in the Bayou State. It's the first time he's granted access in his homeland since he retired from the NBA in 2004.


Josh Martin is the Editorial Director of CloseUp360. He previously covered the NBA for Bleacher Report and USA Today Sports Media Group, and has written for Yahoo! Sports and Complex. He is also the co-host of the Hollywood Hoops podcast. Follow him on Twitter and Instagram.
