    A girl then interrupted us and started to say how Jerry hates Deron and has been trying to get management to trade him. She said that Jerry couldn't deal with Deron's crap anymore and that they need to pick either him or Deron. She claimed that she was a friend of Jerry's new wife's family and that is how she came about this info!

    My friend and I looked at each other and after she left started to laugh, we didn't believe a word she said Cuz the miracle in Miami just happened as well as all those comeback wins!!

    We were both blown away when Jerry stepped down there after!!
    I have no doubt that what she said was 100 percent true.

    That is exactly what my dad's friend told him. I know I know, I don't have any links. But it's more true than any of the links which company men Ben Bagley or David Locke have ever provided.

    For literally quite some time Jerry and Duron had been growing a part. It wasn't just a sudden blowup. Things had been boiling over for quite some time.
    Corbin sucks.

    Torrey Ellis is a poison.

    But still Jerry disappointed me in the way he just stepped down. In the middle of the season, after a game--just up and walked away. After years of listening to Jerry talk about respect for the game, respect for the Millers, and respect for the fans I expected better from him.

    If Jerry was upset that the Jazz had kept an incresingly poisonous Deron, while letting Mathews and Boozer walk, well then he should have not signed the one year extension and just not come back.

    Even Dwight Howard would deny getting/asking Stan Van to be fired. Oh wait, it already happened:

    The thing that made me believe her words after it all went down was how many of the beat writers and local sports guys said how much a prick Deron would be in interviews and stuff like that!!

    So what if Dwill said "people think I GOT Avery fired"....?

    But the perception before the last 48 hours was that Sloan stepped down....not fired. So that logic makes no sense. Before yesterday I don't remember an article or a TV analyst referring to Jerry Sloan as getting "fired" by the Jazz.
