Introducing Athlete Objects: a creative project from graphic artist Jesse Hora, who turns famous players into unique shapes and images using their attributes, nicknames and other factors for inspiration.

First up: With the Utah Jazz back in the playoffs, why not honor two of the franchise's legends?

KARL MALONE

The objects:
Piece of mail: Nicknamed “The Mailman.”
Hat: The Mailman has to dress the part.
Macaroni w/ hornet: This guy was known to throw a mean elbow -- ask Isiah Thomas.
Pear: He and Stockton were a pair like no other; how many times did the announcers say "Stockton to Malone!"?


JOHN STOCKTON

The objects:
Sock: Because a jagged arrow on a graph (stock) is stupid.
Mr. Cyst: This guy was a human assist.
Pass: Even his cyst is passing the ball to get an assist.
Short shorts: Loved sporting the old-school shorty shorts.
Pear: See Malone.
