Larry H. Miller Rumors

Jonathan Rinehart, a 12-year veteran of the Utah Jazz staff and most recently the vice president of communications, was named today as the team president of the Salt Lake City Stars, the NBA G League affiliate of the Jazz, announced Don Stirling, executive vice president of Larry H. Miller Sports and Entertainment. “As the Stars begin their second season in Salt Lake City, we are pleased to have Jonathan in a management role due to his extensive experience in the NBA and knowledge about the business and basketball sides of a franchise,” said Stirling. “This is a great opportunity in his taking the leadership reins for one of our growing properties that has a direct impact on the Jazz.”
Sometime before the best season in franchise history, Utah Jazz owner Larry H. Miller asked one of his superstars for some fashion advice. What did John Stockton think about changing jerseys? “Nope,” the Hall of Fame point guard recalls saying. “I know my opinion. I didn’t want to change anything. The Yankees don’t change their logo. That was my attitude. So why do the Jazz have to change theirs? He took my advice and put it where it mattered, I guess.”
Three minutes into my first game, I planted my left foot awkwardly onto the court while passing the ball. I felt some weird and painful twinges in the bottom of my heel and hobbled off the court. Moments later, Jazz general manager Dennis Lindsey jokingly put me on the injured reserve list. A member of the training staff wrapped my foot in ice, another painful experience in and of itself. Steve Starks, president of Larry H. Miller Sports & Entertainment, walked by and joked something along the lines of, “Wait. Wasn’t the ice on your other foot a minute ago?”
