Default Re: Jerry Sloan steps down, leaves Utah Jazz! Era is over!

A typical example of Jerry's thinking in an article about the best guys the Jazz got rid of over their years in Utah.

Dell Curry

His exit Traded to Cleveland with Kent Benson in three-team deal that brought Mel Turpin and Daryl Dawkins to Utah.

His career Curry played 15 more seasons in the NBA, appearing in 1,016 games and averaging 12 points with a high of 16.3 for Charlotte in 1993-94 when he was voted the Sixth Man of the Year.

The famous story of how Curry’s short stay with the Jazz ended involves the pro-am summer league game in which Jeff Judkins, by then a retired NBA player, hit a winning shot over Curry that caused Jerry Sloan, then a Jazz assistant, to sour on Curry’s future. Well, he played only 16 seasons in the league. Curry thrived as a shooter, while passing on that trait to his son Stephen, who plays for Golden State.

He was better than Hanson from day 1 as was Griffith.
