    Not going to happen.

    The Jazz seem obviously in need of a more experienced coach. If Deron was a factor in Sloan leaving, and since Deron is no longer here and Sloan is apparently interested in coming back to NBA coaching, there are plenty of current Sloan fans that would love to see him come back to the Jazz... myself included.

    This is proof that the D-Will/Sloan debacle was greatly over exaggerated.

    D-Will is not the bad guy people think he is.

    I can't wrap my head around this possibility or it will make me crazy. So many rumors and half-truths. It is in the past; so whatever will be is what it is, whether I like it or not....and I don't like it!

    Sloan either gave up on the team mid-season, which is ridiculous, or quit because a player was tougher than him. Deron was the one guy who had the talent and the attitude to do whatever it took to win games. Yet the Jazz traded him on a "feeling" that he may not return, receive praise by you gullible Jazz fans who claim their decision was so terrific, and now the Jazz either barely make the playoffs and lose in the first round, or don't make the playoffs at all. How has that decision turned out for us fans? Oh, that is right, the Jazz have such a "bright future" with the "young guys." Give me a break. Same old line. The Jazz may make money as a team, but the city will never see a championship with management's approach. More of the same, each year. Too bad too, because D-Will liked Salt Lake City, and he is a big time guard that, had the Jazz used some management skills, made a career here. We'll never see that level of player again for years.

    For those of you who still cling to the belief that DWilliams had everything to do with Sloan's quick resignation are living in a vacuum. Perhaps his immediate resignation was due to front office shenanigans and he said enough. You must admit that the general manager and owner (Miller's son) aren't exactly the pinnacle of basketball smarts, especially the younger Miller (who reminds me of the ineptness of Jerry Buss's son who took over the Lakers). I hope Sloan is offered the job. I hope he takes it, and I hope he blows the Jazz out every time they play against each other. I love the Jazz, but am baffled by the horrible talent choices.

    Chris you're wrong. Jerry had been tempted to leave many times before. Sloan was never the type to get run over by a player. D Will did what all spoiled multimillion dollar athletes do, he bolted for a bigger market. Sloan left because he was tired of the NBA. Now maybe he didn't get the support from Greg that he wanted and got for Larry, but blaming Daron is shortsighted.

    D will gets a huge contract after he ran Sloan out.

    Sloan can return to the NBA if he wants.

    And in the end, its just the Utah Jazz FANS messed over by this.

    Deron, you're a joke. Still won't admit he's the one who ran Sloan out. He just now realizes his mistake, even if he wont admit it.

    Sloan didn't just have a bad day the day he quit, after coaching for 18 years straight.

    It's all Deron's fault.
