    sloan hater why don't you apply for sloan job you seem to know a great deal about coaching I think Coach Sloan has done a fantastic job of coaching considering all the injuries this team has had to endure. Sloan play the player who come in and play hard and contribute there is not many coaches who could have handle the team like he has. Hand down I think coach Sloan should get the COACH OF THE YEAR he has a great relationship with the player and he has tried to use the rookies especially when Memo and Boozer- Deron where out and it was quoted that he wants to send the rookies to D Leaque so they can develope and improve as a player so it show he has character which Sloan Hater lacks

    Could someone please clue sloan in to what his job is?

    sloan doesn't seem know, not motivation, not fundamental, not developing or coaching rookies and young players, no real strategizing or game plans,...

    I guess he thinks it is just to run the players through practices, yell at players to get in shape or play defense, and sit on his hands during games, except to swear at the refs.

    Is this what jazz are paying millions of dollars for?

    Is this what the jazz fans think you should win the coach of year award for?

    Jazz are the 13th best team in the league at blocks. Not one of the worse teams in the league (they are better than San Antonio, New Orleans, Houston).

    The Jazz are going to have their Happy Gilmore moment - when Happy learns how to putt - "looks like somebody learned how to win on the road" The players need to fine their happy places.

    I agree with you 100%. Part of the reason is that he is the point gaurd, so he is able to set the tone for the team with his play. The other reason is just that he is the only one that has that Assasin's mentality. If he keeps leading the way he has been, it is only a matter of time. Just look at his stats in the Golden State loss. He was trying to lead by example. Hopefully the next time he does, others will follow.

    This team better start playing better team and individual defense or they will be one and out in the playoffs. Did anyone notice last night and all season long that when other teams get the ball around the basket, no one on the Jazz team even puts their arms up trying to defend alot of the time let alone leave their feet and jump to try and block shots, other than A.K., Korver, and Brewer. No wonder we are one of the worst in the league at shot blocks. It's called effort boys, just do it.

    D-will must come out shooting, forget getting everybody involved. once he established his presence on the court, then get everyone involved because everyone on the Jazz sucks on road exceptions of dwill and maybe okur

    Winning on the road starts with Deron. He has to be the one to light a fire under the rest of the guys. He has to be the one ragging at them to play tight D. He has to be the one getting in their faces.

    I don't know if he can do this easily, given his personality. In this respect CP3 has been a better leader of his team. But DWill has to find a way to do it, or it's not going to happen.
