Jazz play with no passion or heart because of JSloan

Honest question: What amount of Sloan's ability to get discipline out of his players results from the actual coaching abilities of Sloan and what amount of that result can be traced to the fact that everyone in the locker room knows that they can't get him fired?

I have a suspicion that his being the most bullet-proof coach in the league means more than a hard-nosed approach. It's the only thing that differentiates him from Doug Collins, Hubie Brown or any number of other coaches.

Does he command more discipline now than in 1989 when he didn't have the advantage of not being fired? I highly doubt it. Old film of him coaching the Jazz really shows he would get after players, Malone and Stockton included.
