I've watch Sloan basically his whole career.
Not many games per season , but enough to know his character.

6-8 weeks ago I was watching a stretch of games and I noticed something quite profound and stated it on this forum.

Sloan is done.

Why did I know that ?

All great coachs do alot of talking in time outs as well as slow times in games , to make comments to players , correct players and basically keep everyone on the same page.

One game while time running out , the Jazz called a time out for a final shot if I recall.
Sloan did not udder ONE WORD... his assistants and D-Will powwow'ed with the team.
That was the biggest red flag - I knew this was his last season.
--------------
For him to end it before the end of the season , says alot about his character..... once again he put the team ahead of him self.

What made him a great defensive player I witnessed , made him have cred with his players.

SAD day ISH.

This is so sad. When I noticed there was a losing streak for Jazz, I notice something went wrong. But I just dont know thing would go that bad.
The league owed Sloan a COY.

Though I am not a fans of Jazz, but Sloan really brought alot to NBA. Thank you, Sloan.

no need to diss a player / His coach retired , giv it a rest.
Remember D-Will was under Sloans teachings.

He was disagreeing with the fact that you wouldn't think Jazz fans realize what Sloan is to that organization.

Well, it wouldn't surprise me at all if 75% of the Jazz fans thought Deron meant more to the Jazz franchise then Sloan.

You didn't hear Jasper? Sloan left because Deron forced him out.

This is out of no where.... (unless I missed something)

One of the longest tenured coaches not only in basketball, but in all sports.

Have you seen the crowd at Energy Solution? I'm pretty sure majority of the Jazz fans date back to the 1990's.

Deron interview. Rips Bucher and Broussard.

Says "Sloan meant way more to Utah than he ever will and would leave the team before he ever forced the coach out".

It's literally the only thing that has come out. Is he morally obligated to up for 5 more years in Denver?

I fail to see the connection between exercising one's free agent rights and acting like a jerkoff to your coach to the point he gets fired like DWill apparently did.

And btw, Paul is playing hard, complaining not at all, and he currently plays for a team that is in limbo because no one wants to buy it. You know, since we are giving him shit for trying to get out. Which he currently is not...
Maybe Amare didn't fit into the James-Bosh-Wade-Boozer group. I really don't know a ton about his situation, to be completely honest. He wasn't exactly on my radar during this past offseason. I threw him in there because he is a part of that 'draft class' of players that have pretty much turned the league upside down.

Paul went through a thing at the beginning of the season where he was putting pressure on the Hornets, saying that he may be looking elsewhere. It is just uncanny to me. Literally almost all of the best players in the league have either left the teams that drafted them or are on the hunt for new ones. And, these aren't veterans.... Young guys, some of whom haven't even entered their prime, making demands, getting highly respected coaches fired and keeping their franchises guessing at all times.

If Melo was the only one, then no... It wouldn't be a big deal. It is taking a step back and looking at the league as a whole.

Obviously, what Williams has done goes beyond the others this season (so far), but that doesn't make this movement any less scary for someone that loved the way that the NBA used to be.

The Cavs may have the No. 1 pick in this coming draft and, although it clearly isn't a strong year, we are going to be in a position to get a potentially good player. My biggest concern isn't the Cavaliers making the right choice... it is picking a guy that won't hold the franchise hostage and then bolt. That isn't how a sports fan should have to approach a draft.

It should be about potential, not potential d0uchbaggery.
