A week ago, Karl Malone flew in for what Tammy calls “a five-hour lunch.” John Stockton calls weekly, and whenever he’s in town takes the coach to lunch. Hornacek, who coached after his playing days, met with Sloan outside the Knicks locker room last year. Andrei Kirilenko once wept at practice over differences with Sloan, yet last season walked down the Vivint Arena hallway, one arm draped around him. “All his former players call,” Tammy says. Even Deron Williams, whose clashes with Sloan triggered the coach’s retirement, has since praised the longtime coach.
About a year later, Joe Johnson made a plea to two reporters on Williams’ behalf, understanding his teammate’s delicate state of mind. “Take it easy on D-Will,” Johnson said. “He can’t handle it.” But Williams’ struggles weren’t the only reason the foundation crumbled. Brook Lopez broke his foot in December. Andrei Kirilenko was either injured or ineffective. Andray Blatche allegedly showed up drunk to practices, according to multiple sources, and briefly was suspended by the team.
