R.I.P. Jerry Sloan

One of the best coaches ever. The Western Conference was always loaded during his coaching career in Utah and when he made it to the Finals had to beat Jordan's Bulls. Conicidentally chronicled nicely just this past weekend in "The Last Dance". Always seemed cruel that the man they called "The Original Bull" was denied a championship by the Bulls.

Anyway, ties into Nets history because when his relationship with Deron Williams deteriorated, we all know how that affected the Nets for many years to come (was this season the last year D-Will gets paid by the Nets?).

A little personal trivia....the last game I ever attended at the Brendan Byrne Arena/Contitnental Airlines Arena/Izod Center was a game against the Jerry Sloan coached Utah Jazz
