THE 'Mailman' dropped by Manny Pacquiao's training camp at the Wild Card Gym in Los Angeles.

Pacquiao on Friday posted on Instagram a photo of him with former Utah Jazz and Los Angeles Lakers star Karl Malone and his family, including his half-Filipina Kay, during a break in training.

“Thank you Karl Malone for visiting me today. God Bless you and your family,” Pacquiao, a basketball fan who is playing-coach of PBA ballclub KIA Motors back home, wrote on his Instagram account.

Malone distinguished himself as one of the greatest players in NBA history during a 19-year career, most of it spent with the Jazz.

The two-time MVP and two-time Olympic gold medalist finished his career in third in the all-time scoring list with a total of 36,928 points.
