Definitely not. It seemed like Alz.
At a few points during the conference, Sloan's eyes looked exactly like my grandpa's eyes when he would try to talk or think, a few years before he died (he had both Alzheimers and Parkinsons)
Was I the only one laughing hysterically when Sloan said, "my wife has got a job for me when I get home..."
Yeah, something like that...it made me sad.
who would have thought jerry sloan would retire mid-season... he abandoned us! That's so unlike the "Jerry Sloan" I know, I hope we can get to the truth soon
Let us forever keep this thread bumped until the demise of JF.com.
A novel, worthy thread, indeed. A tribute thread, indeed.
It just occured to me; it is possible Sloan did this partly to motivate the team, kind of like getting thrown out of a game on purpose, but on a bigger scale, since nothing else was working.
i belevie he was forced out and that phil johnson followed him as a matter of principle
the coy award is a joke. if jerry gets it this year the joke of an award willl be even a bigger joke
I think the Jazz did beg him to stay...until the season was over.
Sloan probably decided it was going to be on his terms, not theirs.
The COY award is a joke anyway. If he does get it, it will be a lifetime achievement award, not really for COY.
This just come out:
If Jazz had just a little more patience. Sloan leaving was a blessing in disguise. It was time. Enough was enough. 23 years is a very long time. But at least give Corbin a chance to build something. Why take out the only great player on the team? KOC made his share of mistakes, but I don't think this will be the one he can recover from.
Why did you bump this?
That's actually really amazing. Vinylone and moevilli noticed signs of Parkinson's disease a full 5 years before it came out that he was diagnosed (it was reported as if he had just been diagnosed with it).
It adds a wrinkle to the Sloan retirement story in that maybe Sloan stepped down not only because of the DWill issue but because he knew or suspected he had a disease.
That bitch DW was the last straw!!
