One of the all-time coaching greats. Also, has his number retired by the Bulls from his playing days.

That sucks. I didn't even know he had been dealing with those health issues.

Mr. Basketball. His Jazz teams always seemed to overachieve every single year.

Johnny Most hated him as a player.  Said he was dirty.  Remember those broadcasts (late 60's) like it was yesterday.

Thought he was a really good coach. 

NBA DNA legit.

RIP.

I liked him a lot.  Too bad he bailed a little bit prematurely due to the Deron Williams conflict.  The Jazz used to be kind of amusing with Malone talking about his logging company and Harley all the time and Sloan wearing his John Deere hat at the post game press conferences.  Those two seemed made for each other.

RIP. His offences were slightly predictable, but they were incredibly effective. One of the greatest coaches ever without a doubt.

Great coach. Unfortunately, that thug and nowadays a ghost D-Will ran him out of town

Integrity, that what comes to mind when I hear Jerry Sloan.
