    Tonight, I will drink to Sloan.

    By far my favorite person to be involved with the Utah Jazz. There aren't very many like him. He will be missed.

    Absolutely should. Also think they should eventually add a couple of chairs to the scene with Larry and Gail.

    From getting close to a championship in the 90s, it was hard as people kept dropping off thinking it’s depressing that if/when we win a title, some of the guys who were on the journey so long wouldn’t be there. When Hornacek left, there was a bit of a sting thinking that if we won it all, he wouldn’t be part of it. Then John and Karl. Really wanted us to knock off San Antonio (automatic title, IMO) in the WCF but the bittersweet part would have been going all the way without having the crew that drove us for so long being there.

    People now actually dying leaves more finality to that. I sometimes suggest we should sign Karl to be our backup center. I usually say that only part way joking.

    When play resumes, Quin, Donovan or Rudy better not start jackpotting around or playing in tuxedos or they will be haunted viscously.

    For me this is a very sad moment, I liked the Coach more than John and Karl, Sloan was Utah Jazz, I loved his basketball madly, especially his offense, I regret every day that basketball system: the wings that cross during the transition, the pick and roll, the blocks of our Gs, in addition to the physical and mental hardness that he pretended to give his players. Our community in Italy (we are so many) learned the news with dismay and sadness, today is a terrible day for those who support Utah Jazz. I will miss you very much.

    There's a second half to this with a message from the Millers. He's getting a statue.

    Honestly... now that he is gone I think it could happen. He didn't care for that nonsense.

    **** 2020... it is the darkest timeline.

    I promise you my dad gonna call me today in tears. I have not heard anyone that had a bad experience with him off the court... well fans anyway. He was tough as hell and meaner than snot on the court... he was the nicest dude off the court and quite warm.

    Sad day... RIP Jerry... there will be no jackpotting around in heaven today... better take all them silly *** pillow forts down.

    My favorite memory of him was chasing Dennis Rodman around the arena after Rodman had sucker punched John Stockton.

    R.I.P Coach Sloan.

    Featured snippet from the web
    Although he never won a Coach of the Year award, he is one of only four coaches in NBA history with 15-plus consecutive seasons with a winning record (Gregg Popovich, Pat Riley and Phil Jackson are the others).

    This is probably the craziest one. What former NBA players were holding basketball camps for girls 40 years ago?!
