Default why is one of the top 2 coaches in the world today still without a job?

Jerry Sloan has stated he wants to come back. Why hasn't the Clips contacted him yet? He loves PG/PF combo... Stockton/Malone... DWill/Boozer... CP3/Griffin... seems like the perfect match!

Blake doesn't have the mid-range game to compensate for a good PnR defense. The Lakers should've hired him (before we traded for CP3 then acquired Nash) because he's better than Brown. We still had Kobe, Gasol, Odom and an emerging Bynum.

Because he is old and overrated.

I think Jerry Sloan is like Greg Popovich and would only work well with a select group of guys.

Any primadonnas and they are going to clash with Sloan.

This is one reason why having a door mat like Spoelstra works for the Heat. Sloan would not work on that team.

Racism.
That, and players these days cannot handle a tough coach like Sloan.
