Sloan to retire....
Now DWill is gonna try and handpick his own coach.....
every wife is doin the dishes tonight....
Is he retiring, or is he just resigning? Because if he wants to coach again, I would give anything to have him come and coach the Warriors.
Big ups to Phil Johnson resigning with Sloan. Bros before pros.
that is why CP3 is better than Williams. What a dick.
A little piece of me just died. Jerry Sloan has been one of the constant sources of awesomeness in my life for many years. They just don't make coaches, or human beings for that matter, like him any more - old school, humble and refuses to take any shit.
Respect to Phil Johnson as well. That's a type of loyalty you don't see much these days.
I'm going to wait for the rumors to stop flying and the full truth to come out to find out who's fault this is and who I need to despise as much as Yoko Ono.
"Big ups to Phil Johnson resigning with Sloan. Bros before pros."
I know! Sloan was lucky to have such a loyal partner, who would give up a chance to be a head coach for him.
Phil Johnson has a Coach of the Year award - something Sloan got snubbed on time and time again.
Wow, I did not know that Landshark. Way to dig out the archives for that one. Jerry Sloan not winning that award is blasphemous. He's like the Edward Norton of the NBA.
Phil Johnson won the Coach of the Year award in the 1974-75 season coaching the Kansas City-Omaha Kings.
So, who's the new NBA coach most likely to beat a lazy player's ass? Scott Skiles?
Was on ESPN radio in Chicago yesterday. It sounds like he has a lot of energy left, but is 70+ and no way he comes back. To put things in perspective, he said he remembered watching Joe Paterno (yes- coach of the Penn State Football Team) play quarterback in High School. Joe's brother was the fullback.
So, if D-Will got Sloan fired, who is he going to pick to be the head coach. Bring back Lou "Doo" Hensen!
His old school approach is not working. He is a good coach don't get me wrong, but overrated IMO. Yes overrated.Utah is screwed because I don't see Williams coming back.
"His old school approach is not working. He is a good coach don't get me wrong, but overrated IMO."
His system made the Utah Jazz the best passing, most efficient team in the NBA over the past 4 or 5 seasons. His win record speaks for itself. How can you say his system doesn't work?
NBA.com says he will be replaced by Corbin, and they say he will be their permanent head coach, not just the interim label.
To answer Landshark, everytime I see Tom Thibodeau in an interview, he scares the Asian out of me, also SVG is never smiling, and I would have said Avery Johnson too, but he ain't doing to get Brook to rebound. I remember he used to cuss a lot of players out in Dallas.
It's a sad, sad day when Jerry Sloan has to retire because of Deron Williams's punkass ways, but here's some humor to maybe lift some spirits.
Not sure how to embed video files, but I think the link works.
Watch Sloan and Johnson sign with the Bulls now...
When asked if he would watch the PHX/Utah game tomorrow, Sloan responded by saying "I'll be like a dizzy duck. You know what I mean."
I will feel awkward seeing no Jerry Sloan on that Utah Jazz bench... He's been there like forever... When I heard of this news, my heart just literally broke to pieces... I can't believe it...
Sad to hear one of the greatest coaches of all time resign in such a fashion...this is why i can't give any of these superstars the benfit of a doubt...put up a few good stats, a few recognition and they go bizzerk with it....i swear people need to learn how to humble themselves...
I am completley lost for word tonight,
the End of My Jazz as i know them!
I am so pissed right now
I say we waive Williams!
don't even waste our time trying to trade him!
Trade him to the Lakers for Blake. I hope the Jazz fans start treating him like they did Boozer nd he gets pissed. Best way to get revenge on Jazz fans out here is to come play for the Lakers
We're pretty much done for on the D-Will front.
Even if he had nothing to do with Jerry leaving, the Utah Jazz fans (who have had nothing but unwavering support for Williams thus far) will blame him for this and give him hell.
I doubt management trades him, although I think that's the best option right now.
I love Tyrone Corbin, but the franchise is in serious trouble.
"Deron's gone. There's a zero percent chance he stays in Utah if his legacy is Jerry's departure."

No matter how good the player is Utah has always been very loyal to there coach. That's one thing I've liked about Utah fans. I think you'll notice more and more turn on DWill after this.
