The newcomer of Khimki Moscow Region in Jonas Jerebko revealed in an interview with Izvestia that his basketball idol growing up was Andrei Kirilenko: “No, I don’t know him but I played against him. He was one of my idols when I was growing up, I tried to be like him. He was the player whose game I expected to play with very great impatience when I was in the NBA. I even have a jersey with his autograph. He was one of those who I greatly admired, yes”, he said.
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.
