Malone was looking for a job in the NBA at the time and Popovich took it upon himself to recommend Malone to Mike Brown when the former Spurs assistant was head coach in Cleveland.Considering Malone had never worked for Popovich, what made Popovich vouch for the then young assistant, who was hired by Brown.''He bought my lunch in Argentina,'' Popovich said dryly. ''No, he's a genuine guy. He doesn't try to pull the wool over everybody's eyes. He doesn't try to play an image, he's Mikey, and he loves basketball. He's a hard worker. I could tell a long time ago that he understood the game. He understood what won and lost. He's got a personality where he's got a sense of humor, but at the same time he's got the fiber to make demands and hold people accountable. It was pretty apparent that he was going to have a career in this league. He just needed a start some place so I was happy to help him.''
