Love coach Sloan!

I'll never forgive D-will for what he did. Jazz management could never acnkowledge it and we all know Sloan would never say anything, but its clear there were a couple blowups between D-will and Sloan, with the last being the worst and causing Sloan to retire out of nowhere. That was not a Sloan kind of thing to do. He managed hundreds of different personalities in 20 years with the Jazz. For him to just quit out of nowhere in the middle of the season like that, it must have been pretty bad with D-will.

Thanks coach Sloan!

I know it wont happen, but we wish you would return to the bench - here in Utah!

For me it started with the old Salt Palace, a red, white & blue ball,, Sam Battiston, the Utah Stars, Moses Malone, Dr.J., Nemelka et al. and ended with the Larry Miller, the Utah Jazz, Frank Laden, Stockton, Malone and Coach Sloan. What a ride. Thank you Utah!

Major kudos to Brad Rock for a great piece, masterfully written. Much will be said about Sloan over the next few days but nothing will be more illuminating, entertaining and properly respectful than what Brad Rock has written here.

Coach Sloan: The classiest guy in the history of the league. I remember hearing him interviewed, a couple of times, when he was a player. I was always amazed regarding his comments about the game. He analyzed so many of the little things, even as a young player. As head coach, he seemed to hide from the cameras. That was always refreshing, when compared to many other head coaches.

Remember one time during the game Thomas S. Monson walk behind him saying "Keep up the Good Work". I wonder the prophet would come up to him again, you think Sloan this time going to throw him out or laugh along with him.
