    Dude's too old. Sure, he could last half a season, but he's going to get tired again especially trying to keep superstars in line. Get the guy and XBox, he shouldn't come back to the NBA.

    I think he would hate the recruiting aspect, but Sloan would make a great college coach. Plus, it is a 20-30-game season rather than an 82-game one.

    Don't get me wrong, Sloan would be great with the Lakers, but he would have to figure out how best to use Kobe. Sloan's offense was always the weakest with the 2 and 3 positions.

    If the Lakers get rid of Brown, the first call would be to Phil Jackson.

    Smart move.
    And of course a copy of NBA 2k13.

    Kobe and Jerry respect each other.

    Jerry and Deron didn't in the end.

    Jerry could coach the Lakers and at this point I wouldn't even be mad because they would get bounced by the Spurs in the playoffs because He's Jerry Sloan.

    But if Jerry coached them to a championship...good for him. And Steve Nash. But not for Kobe or Dwight. That's how I feel.

    The last time I saw Sloan interviewed, he seemed much, much older. I think retirement has dulled his senses a bit. It's inevitable I guess.

    I doubt he coaches again.

    He looked VERY OLD when they showed him sitting in the stands on opening night. Sloan needs to enjoy his retirement. He made enough money...now go out and travel some, enjoy the years he has left.

    1) First of all, he got a respectable history as a coach and if a problem exists in the team, as a player you would be the weird and the problematical guy. Look at the instance of Deron Williams. Mike Brown is so vulnerable for me on this matter. And we all know Lakers got too many problem makers on their current roster.

    2) He's a defensive minded coach. Look at how awful they are at the defensive end. He'll definitely be helpful on that area.

    3) The ineffectiveness of Steve Nash so far is bothersome. Sloan have coached anchors like Malone & Stockton (deadly pick & roll combo) and he knows how much pick & roll (Nash & Dwight) and pick & pop (Nash & Gasol) could be effective. He'll definitely use Nash more effectively, unlike Mike "give it to Kobe" Brown.

    Once for all, even if i hate the Lakers i want Sloan to get a ring. He deserves it more than anyone.
    Brown is a defensive guru that is his claim to fame and why he was hired. Sloan would do no better on the defensive end, likely worse. The Lakers are just old.

    I can't see a scenario where Sloan would be boo'd. If Jazz fans booed him than they really would be the most classless fans ever. Jerry Sloan gave the Jazz organization a lot. There were greener pastures if he wanted to at anytime in his career. He stuck around when things were good and bad. No reason to boo him. Ever.
