A couple years ago Charles Barkly said that Jerry Sloan is the toughest guy on
the Jazz team. I still think that is true. Thats no slam to the players because
Sloan is one of the toughest guys around. But over the years I have seen him
lighten up alittle. Thats not to say he is weak, he is still tough as nails. But
he has put basketball in the proper perspective. Family first! How often do you
see that in Pro sports?
I appreciate Jerry's view of life. It is a blessing to be enjoyed with hard work
I hope the players enjoy and appreciate this Xmas break. This I hope will give
them the regenerated energy needed to start games off better and also give the
second unit more playing minutes while reducing those for the starters. Good
luck men on the balance of the season.
