Making playoffs with Deron, Boozer, Okur, Harpring and AK would not have been a difficult task to any coach.
    I guess we should really wait until Sloan is hired again by some scrub team and does his magic there to really judge him. I am really disappointed he did not get Charlotte job, would be perfect situation to test his "greatness".
    Sloan was offered several coaching jobs, including that Charlotte job, and turned them down. Funny, none of these experts at the highest level offered Blatt the job.

    We'll see how great Sloan is or isn't when he's coaching the Lakers next year.

    Again, your turn. Show me an example of one who complained, besides AK.
    Now I really question your memory. Olajuwon was nowhere near his prime when Barkley joined Rockets. Garnett as well - and even then I would argue that his role was not that much reduced, he played in same position and same minutes and got more then enough touches... Robinson was in his prime in 1993 not in 1999-2001.

    Looks like you missed the the sad truth. Sloan was never offered any positions, he was interviewed for position at Charlotte and Jordan chose other coach. Sloan never turned down that position.

    He did not choose a different coach until after Sloan took his name out of consideration. Your right he was not offered the job. Because he turned it down before they did offer it.
    Welcome aboard Snyder, Exum and Hood. Here is to hoping this season is more entertaining than the last 3.
