    But they aren't all "uniform" as some are black some are pink some are yellow etc etc.

    I remember big dog Carr wearing glasses yet I didn't see everyone else wearing them.

    Been waiting for this day to come for years!

    Bet a lot more people will want to play in Utah because of that as well.

    Sloan was an overrated crochidy old man who told kids to get off of his lawn. He cost the Jazz so many games by yelling at the refs and NEVER calling timeouts when the other team would go on a run. It's about time that they got rid of that ridiculous unwritten rule that made no sense.

    He was a good coach in the league, but I wouldnt call him a great coach

    His peers knew that he was good but not great, that's why he never won coach of the year. Other coaches didnt like him

    I think that players didnt want to play here with John and Karl because they didnt want to play for Sloan more than not wanting to play in Utah

    This is correct. They weren't explicitly banned. Sloan and Corbin left it as an All or Nothing thing.

    Bull. COTY is voted by media members, not his peers. His peers did vote him COTY (Sporting News) in 03/04 after Stockton and Malone left and it was AK and scrubs that almost got to the playoffs. Otherwise, Sloan was always perceived as having two all-times on his team up until they retired/left. But he was respected enough to get into the HoF as a coach his first crack out. That is something

    Beyond that, Utah suffered from the small-market stigma for the longest time. Not sure if you know this, but it's not common for small markets in the NBA to land marquee players.

    Oh I agree with you that he was great with that team that was lead by kirilenko and Harpring. I never said he was a bad coach or a mediocre coach, but he wasnt a great coach.

    He wouldnt ever call a play for a 3 pointer

    He wouldnt make an adjustment on the court

    He would make his substitutions like clockwork no matter how x player was performing

    He wouldnt ever call a timeout when a team was starting to make a run, he would wait until it was like a 12-0 run before a timeout

    He wouldnt let his point guards call plays

    He ruined AK47

    Refs DID NOT like him and I'm sure would sway calls because of it

    A lot of players did not want to play for him

    Did not ever make an adjustment when the league allowed zone defense

    I think people have mistaken the toughness and intensity that he brought to the game as coaching IQ. He was a good coach, he belongs in the hall of fame (because of his record and longevity), but he wasnt a great coach.

    He didn't have players who could wear headbands productively?
