Jerry Sloan Rumors
At every step — starting with his rookie season with the Sixers — he figured he had found a permanent home. “Maybe I was a little naive, but I thought that seven times” he said. “And as a coach, I wanted Oklahoma City to be my last team. But very rarely do you have a Jerry Sloan career in coaching. You’re going to do the best you can, and hopefully it works out and you stay there a long time.”
Kenyon Martin: Jerry Sloan ran down the sideline, screaming, “What the hell? I’m going to kick your ass!” I was so surprised. I was like, “Whoa! Sit your old ass down before I hit you too!” We got into it and they had to separate us. That was when I realized that Jerry Sloan was a tough dude. Years later, he was still coaching the Jazz and I was a free agent. They wanted to get me. He told my agent that story: Remember when Kenyon said he’d kick my ass? Now’s his chance.
