Rip Jerry Sloan.

Utah was my other team in the 90s and really wanted Utah to win in 98.

Great coach.

Touching tributes from Eaton, Bailey Hayward etc.

RIP Jerry. Much respect. Condolences to family, friends, colleagues, players. Maybe he's doing drills with Kobe in the clouds right this very moment.
