Sloan loses his job; the NBA loses the battle
by Sam Smith

Sometimes you have an epiphany, and Jerry Sloan apparently had one Wednesday night when his Utah Jazz were losing to the Bulls. Jerry realized the inmates had taken over the asylum, and this time the guards werenít going to do anything about it. Deron Williams, so it seems from the reports of internal friction with Sloan, got the biggest coaching scalp of all: He got Jerry Sloan fired.

Williams vociferously denied any such thing and blamed media distortions, though reports were widespread in Utah heíd quit on the team and was pushing for Sloanís ouster.

Though Williams really may be just a symbol of what is occurring in the NBA. Not that itís anything new, but maybe more sophisticated and pernicious these days.

Sure, sure, I heard all the talk Thursday during Sloanís farewell press conference of how Jazz management begged Jerry to stay and would have done anything and blah, blah, blah.

Yes, Larry Miller would have done anything. He wouldnít have allowed an insurrection of this sort, just as he didnít when Adrian Dantley tried it and Karl Malone tried it and Carlos Boozer was accused of it, though for Boozer it was more mistimed commemts. But Miller died two years ago this month, along with accountability, and Deron Williams took over the franchise.

Not only Williams, but Dwight Howard in Orlando and Carmelo Anthony in Denver and Chris Paul in New Orleans. Itís why, perhaps more than ever now, the NBA will have to fight to the end to have a form of NFL franchise tag to prevent not only the destruction of teams, but teams having to betray their better instincts to cater to their star players lest they all gather in just a few markets and turn the NBA into a few New York Yankees and a lot of Pittsburgh Pirates.

I think what Sloan saw was a player basically telling him to go to hell. Not that as Sloan said it hasnít happened many times before, and Larry Kenon could tell you as well about the chair that whizzed by his head in the Bulls locker room once in Sloanís first head coaching job.

Wiliams is over rated. Hope Utah fails miserably. Reckon he is one of the least likeable players in the league.

That just proves Sloan was a bum.....only just better than the Clippers. What were the Jazz thinking keeping this guy around for so many years.

The NBA is not the league that I once loved.

How is this the players fault? Seems to me that you should be mad at the teams for not stepping up and holding player's accountable or getting rid of them if they don't buy in.

I'd do this in a heartbeat. Works money-wise. I don't know about the Warriors fans, though.


Leaves the Warriors looking like this:

PG: Williams/Law
SG: Ellis/R. Williams
SF: Wright/Miles
PF: Lee/Udoh
C: Anyone but Gadzuric/Gadzuric

Playing with Williams would benefit Lee, Wright and Ellis a lot. We would need to find a real center though...And trading Curry would be a major move for the organization...interesting to think about

Why would they trade Deron now? THey just fired their coach to accomodate him in a way.

Not surprisingly, Deron has ruined his coach and his team, the next is himself.

This is beyond stunning to me. Jerry Sloan deserves better than this after all he's accomplished and done for the Jazz.

After looking at all these interviews, I know this won't be popular to say, but I think Deron vs. Sloan deal is blown a bit out of proportion. It's been said that they argued a bit, but a lot of those reports by Espn guys that aren't in the locker room.

Actually the reports are players and Jazz personnel thought they were going to get into a fistfight. I dunno why else Sloan would leave in the middle of the season so unexpectedly like this, unless he has some family problem or illness that hasn't broke yet.

Those reports are from ESPN, if you've heard any local radio with guys that call the games and in the locker room, it seems blown out of proportion.
