Interestingly, after all these years of being cast as the unimaginative, set-in-his-ways, old-school coach, Sloan has become an intriguing choice. So what if he’s been away a couple of years? Doug Collins took the Sixers to the playoffs two straight years after a 7-year layoff.
One year ago next week, I wrote that Sloan would be better off staying home; that he didn’t need the aggravation. But Sloan changed his mind from when he quit, and so have I.
Seeing him wistfully looking on at the Jazz games has made it obvious he still wants to be a coach. He has said as much, if circumstances are right.
With that in mind, I figure the Bucks should stop looking.
Milwaukee isn’t the most glamorous place, but Sloan isn’t the most glamorous coach. It’s certainly a place he can wear his John Deere cap with pride. That alone makes it a fit.
It might end badly, but one thing I’ve learned about Sloan: The only thing worse than losing is going down without taking his best swing.
