The beginning of the end for the Sloan era of the Jazz came when Utah was unceremoniously swept by the Lakers in the second round of the playoffs.

"We're a playoff team — just not a championship team," Jazz All-Star point guard Deron Williams said. "I think we need a couple more pieces, and until we get those pieces we'll be a four or five seed. Challenging."

"They've got about all you want," Jazz coach Jerry Sloan said. "They've got experience, they've got guys that are long and big and can play inside."

Once again the Lakers would go on to win the championship.
