Jerry’s local paper pays a nice tribute to the man, and his amazing Hall of Fame career: “[Jerry] Sloan called out the plays during the Jazz’s glory years, not Stockton. He gave them the opportunity and motivation. And the anger, too. You could see it on nights when the Jazz lost. Sloan would clamber onto the team bus in his knock-kneed gait and swing grimly into his seat at the front, brooding silently in the dark. Nobody talked loudly or laughed.”
