As a life long Jazz fan it was hard for me to watch him deteriorate like he did. I’m glad his suffering is over.

The image painted in my mind of him was when he ran to mid court with arms in the air to grab Stockton and Malone when Stockton drained that 3 to beat Houston and take the jazz to the finals. I remember being surprised by that. I always thought he was the most hardass coach ever and it was awesome to see him celebrate like that.

I sat next to Jerry in first class on a flight from Atlanta to SLC. He was a great basketball coach but a terrible conversationalist.

I would have thought two Illinois country boys would have had a lot to talk about. I bet he would have had something to say if you brought up some of your favorite recipes like sparrow surprise.


RIP coach.

I did not grow up a Jazz fan. I have spent most of my years cheering against them, actually.

But man, you just had to love Jerry Sloan. He was the just the best. I’m glad he’s freed from the grips of that awful disease. He was one of a kind.
