Jerry was vying for the Bobcats job this summer, so he still wants to coach. He took himself out of the running there, but that wasn't an ideal job for him. This is!!
I have no doubt in my mind whatsoever that Jerry Sloan could take this team to the Finals and beat the Heat. I think he'd actually be the perfect coach for this squad. Better even than Adelman.
Mike Brown practice report
Watch around the 8:20 mark. Brown addresses what happened in the preseason in terms of implementing the system instead of just letting Nash run P&R and do his thing.. The explanation isn't so bad (OK, it's pretty bad ), I just hope his "long haul" plan works.

Yes, he right: we could just play P&R and let Nash create while playing tough D, but is that going to win basketball games for us when it really counts? Probably not. "Nash ball" by itself wins regular season games, but not necessarily in the playoffs. You have to have something else to fall back on; bench players will need that system too. Then you mix things up and of course it is difficult right now. So, it's better to lose 8 preseason games, and/or start as a .500 team, if it means better chemistry and peaking late in the season. I understand what he is saying. Can he implement this with Eddie's help? Let's hope so.
