    Why does everyone think Sloan got fired?

    Even Dwill does:

    "The last thing I would try to do is get any coach fired," Williams said. "I already went through that situation once when people thought I got Coach Sloan fired. Why would I want to put myself through all of that? There's no way I'd do it, because there's certain situations you can never detach your name from once it's happened. But people already are going to believe what they believe. So what can I do now


    The dude stepped down after the Jazz begged him to stay. No way would Sloan ever get FIRED!



    Stupid Dwill and media.

    sloan and d-will were together in d-will's teener years, when the guy was ahead of himself in desire and demand. now he is a more mature guy. but I do not think he would have ever wanted anyone to loose his job even in the middle of all his self-righteousness and his impatience for instant success. neither now with avery.

    Deron said "people thought I got Coach Sloan fired." He's not saying that's what happened.

    He should have said "people think I'm the reason Sloan stepped down"


    Look at twitter or media stories. Many sources keep referring to Sloan getting "fired". Even Charles Barkley said it on NBA TV.

    I'll explain why people keep saying that: no one outside of Utah in the media gives 2-****s about the Jazz... "Fired" is just a shorter word than "Resigned" therefore sparing them precious tenths of seconds that they can use talking about LA or the Heat...

    The Jazz PR machine, Gail, Greg, KOC, (even Sloan himself) may have said that Sloan stepped down on his own free will.

    But it's clear as day to everyone in the business that the ownership sided with DWill rather than giving Sloan full reign. That's the real reason Sloan left. Call it what you will. But that's the situation.

    Holy crap you guys are dumb. Dwill is referring to himself not about Sloan. He should have said "people think I'm the reason Sloan stepped down"

    Even Barkley misspoke on TV saying Dwill is the reason Sloan got fired. They are comparing Avery Johnson to the Sloan situation but the situations were different. Sloan was not fired nor did they want him to leave.


    I can't believe I really had to explain that to you ding dongs.

    They didn't side with Dwill, the dude was traded a few days later.

    They sided with DWill BEFORE Sloan decided to quit.

    Then they tried to convince Sloan to stay. By that time it was too late. Sloan never goes back on his word. he said he'll quit, he'll quit.

    Here's the thing, if dwill said "people think I was the reason sloan got fired" you might have a point. However he said people think I GOT sloan fired. These are not the same things. Therefor you are being a moran. An amusing moran, but a moran nonetheless.
