No, thank you for joining me.
Once again, the man and I'm here with Savvy and Adam.
Well, coming with you will come into you with some sad news.
Is 78 a statement from the Utah Jazz, J.
Whoa! Oh, and Mourning his lost.
We are thankful, but what he accomplished here from Utah and Jerry had a tremendous impact on the Utah Jazz franchise, as expressed by his banner hanging in the Arena Rafters appearances.
This is hard nosed approach on Lee made him more beloved, even after his retired Bella's the n B A.
This did the world of sports as a whole.
Lost a great coach today.
And yet the slow finals twice I think the seven in 98 those Utah Jazz teams were tough.
They're well coached.
What's your take, Adam? I mean, listen easily.
One of the greatest coach is probably an MBA history coaches alike by Go back into it and you look at his track record from when he came into the Utah Jazz Uh oh.
Career, um, just a model of consistency, and I know that that players and fellow coaches around the league has spoken Nothing 70 and track record with it with an MBA franchise.
He was with the Jazz, 20 three 23.
I'm 26 years old, like for your life and that competitive fervor.
You know, going from a player to a coach and just the least.
And I saw that he only had a one cell 500 season with Jack.
500 Yeah, only have that having once over all the seasons.
He called to them, isn't it? The thing about long was to plane instruction, and he brought that to would have it leaked.
Kinship, maybe to back, maybe back to back championships.
We saw from the last dance right? One possession, inbounds, play coral alone, Just just not ready for Jordan on the weeks died under the back, saying Times, teams just come up, you know, in the wrong time period.
Sometimes players Karl Malone happen around them and I don't You never step back and say that horrible.
Karl Malone and John Stockton was ever the best player you alone time having that level of consistency toe have those opportunities a couple of times toe.
Have battles against the Lakers in the Western Conference is.
It's a It's a for those group of players.
Refer that coach, but I know there's a lot of franchises over from 88.
Mix it up with upset a couple of teams, and they could ultimately even losing to Michael Jordan's Chicago.
Both teams there.
There's worse ways.
Jazz games In 97 1 62 games in 98 it had to go through the Rockets, the Senate on it.
Only in managing the perseverance look to get through those teams.
15 Street team around history on J.
Sloan, Of course, We said he spent 23 seasons with the Utah in percentage.
I'm all right at 60%.
Um, and that's a minimum of 500 wins.
16 consecutive That thought it was 15 13 50 win seasons.
20 trips That MBA NBA's all four consecutive games.
Coached with one franchise, 1809.
This 17 cultures in league history to win at least 50 games in 10 different seasons.
That's the from 1988 to 2000 and four.
I mean, let's goes on and on with the accomplishments that he's had over his career.
And, you know, the NBA's loved that.
You highlighted that 13 30 if its AR 15 seasons.
I think you said with with 50 plus wins and distance e of waiting 50 plus games as much as they did just being in the dance, right, You may find yourself right.
Lee typically go down over time, specifically in the playoffs.
So the fact that he was able to be there with those teams the longest is there currently going currently in the n B A.
Right now we know that Ah, Pop is still doing it with the Spurs and his time is gonna come to an end.
Even Terry Stocks, who took over what it filters in 2012 you know, school for that's over that you know, there's something just in to be said for the idea of giving the opportunity right.
There's going to be absent flows.
The opposed to adjust allow a player to retire, allow a new draft class.
That comment allows him for years to come in.
Feel like you've reached him.
Let's stay in the car alone.
Everywhere you go, this is it. This is our time.
We're gonna head coach.
We're gonna you know, we're gonna ride with what he can do for us.
And that's testament to think.
The Utah Jazz being that that and then an organization willing to commit to that to that individual for such a long time? Exactly.
You know, because he that he brought six they had missed the playoffs were, I think, three seasons.
Right? They drafted dinner. Williams.
They signed Savvy.
What kind of what does the coach need? What? What was it that J.
Sloan had? Oh, change.
How did he change with the times? I I was just thinking when he was when he was putting up these incredible performances as a coach, and I have to wonder.
But you're playing as a place for the Bulls way toe to toe, but flips career as a player, I feel like that gives you that you have a commitment paying attention to the trends and how plews like to play to come into on getting remaining mindful about how weaponize that and utilize that offensive Bet you Koji right if I am Oh, and I'm a guy like him and I you to play and I haven't accomplished here and I'm going, But I'm toe you booze, my experiences as a player to inform how I managed personalities in the locker.
I know that I affectively against some of the defense's I'm encountered, especially in the conference, that the Temple wanted to increase right in terms of offensive play style and one of the things that Sloan was very effective at.
It was that flex on something that was developed in the seventies and is a fairly sympathy idea.
But you build off of it.
It was one of the things that Sloan did so well with us to take that flex offense and say, which is predicated on constant movement and what you throughout the floor throughout the offenses sets so that you're not necessarily short for where the best look is gonna come from.
From the defense, there's some I feel like, oh, perimeter shooting, three ball, that that's the nature of the game and you could assume that that's always going to be a and they Smith.
How do I utilize? Like you said, something happened.
Why utilized the players and their skill sets now to create a new ring and start percent and build back onto the interior is not gonna look the same way about setting up in the low post.
But you're still gonna find new ways to, you know, other coach likes can pull 2030 40 years of basketball knowledge.
That's what you'd love to see mind, right? You need to be willing to do understand and adapt and not think that your system now designed, willing and maybe nothing humble enough right to expand yourself and continue the loser coming.
He already showcased 50 wanting back into the playoffs.
And certainly, I think if he had wanted to, he could have continued to it on his laurels and ah ah, disciplinarian coach.
And I don't mean that in a negative way.
You know, just a coach.
That's like, Hey, that has stuck to his laurels.
But we're able to adapt.
And I mean, I think that's just amazing.
Here, take a look at the do***entary.
Um, savvy, Adam, you just want to let everybody that handle because it is not appropriate to be a ways.
But you just go on Twitter and search 70 and I will work on very appropriate animal back.
You said you got your sportscast handle right happily on and we'll go.
That's a very clean. That's a clean handling half for SportsCastrs.
Have you started thinking there? I'm cast as well.
So and on Twitter underneath all those handles as well.
And, uh, I'll say thanks for thanks for having me on Simeon basketball mind, just happy to have been able to be around to experience some of that when he was making such a big impact.
Sloan in his family.
Um, we lost a great one in this video here.
We'll definitely some it thank you much.
Coach teaches Farmer, who reaped only what he had song.
He was a fighter with no fear but court and some other No, no.
Wait right here and hauling kind of differently.
I started to be able to think I've come this far and playing basketball when I was 1 to 1 room.
It's hard nose elbowed.
11 years in the league, two All Star selections and too many fights to count to the organization and the Jazz were step to take is what I resigned.
I think that he became a Hall of Famer.
A folk hero, a giant John Deere cat working harder, always backed his men.
They fought for him because he fought with Jerry was never afraid.
He would say, It's gonna be my way or the highway one.
Get your nose in there and get busted kind of ground.
Wipe it off, Go back and do it.
Bone guiding us We carved up defense's with pick and roll way went to 18 thing with show during sunset.
Go about competing every day about grace in the face of deep loss even.
