RIP Coach Sloan.

Definitely a staple in Utah Culture for over 20 years. Great coach who got the most out of the Jazz year after year. He had the team prepared and within a few plays of beating the Bulls in 97 and 98.

Rest in peace coach. I watched a tribute to him on line and thought this was good.

A lot of idioms from Jerry will live on. Some of my favorites:
We got sideways with each other
Get in a room together and start stacking chairs
We gotta put on our overalls
We're building mashed potato bookshelves

I saw one last night where he said "I'm tired of talking about a shooting guard, there are lots of guys that can shoot. It's a making guard that I'm interested in."

That is one that has stuck with me. It has stuck me so much when I hear an announcer or a commentator say something like "that guy can really shoot the basketball" I think to myself, "yeah, but can he make those shots?"

Yeah some people should definitely not have to wear credentials. It should be implied based on who they are. It is even more ridiculous for Phil Johnson since he not only played at Utah State, but coached the freshman team on top of being an NBA Coach of the Year and Jazz assistant for 25 years.

I can't imagine how intimidating that must have been for Stew to have Frank Layden, Jerry Sloan, and Phil Johnson watching you work.

I doubt it was that big of a deal to Stew. He was pretty established at USU and in the coaching profession. While it did not end well with his last few years, he more than proved himself at USU with a grade A job overall.

One thing I am pretty sure Jerry Sloan NEVER did in the AlamoDome(or at home or the Spurs new Arena or anywhere else) was tell his team to intentionally turn it over, like Gary did to be classy when we played there, as you will see at 29:30.

And Jerry always freaked out over blown calls in the AlamoDome as bad as getting called for roughing the kicker when the defender is blocked into the kicker.
