Bitka je gotova, prijatelju: NBA se oprostio od legende koja nije mogla protiv Parkinsonove bolesti
Po ovome se može videti o kakvoj sportskoj veličini je reč
Sloun je u petak preminuo u 78. godini od posledica Parkinsonove bolesti i demencije, ali trag koji je ostavio za sobom tokom 23 godine na klupi Jute i neki od rezultata koje je postigao ostaju za sva vremena.
Zbog toga je čitav NBA ostao u žalosti zbog gubitka velikog stručnjaka.
Poznati novinar Kenis "Džet" Smit je opisao značaj Džerija Slouna u životu i karijerama Džona Stoktona i Karla Meluna.
- Počivaj u miru Džeri, jedan od najvećih! Nijedan igrač nije doživeo velike visine bez sjajnog trenera. Džon Stokton je bio projektovan kao solidna podrška, a Karl Meloun kao dobar krilni centar pre nego su sreli Slouna i postali jedni od najboljih u istoriji - napisao je Smit.
RIP #JerrySloan .. one of the greats! No player achieves greatness without great coaching. john Stockton projected as a good little backup and Karl Malone as a quality power forward before meeting Sloan and became Alltime greats! RIP

Mark Iton, nekadašnji igrač Jute iz osamdesetih godina se kratko obratio svom prijatelju rečima "bitka je gotova".

Ajzea Tomas se seća anegdote kada je bio klinac i nosio je osam pari čarapa da bi normalno stao u patike koje je dobio od Slouna.

Deron Vilijams, nekada jedan od najboljih plejmejkera u NBA kaže da je štošta naučio od trenera za pet i po godina u Juti, mada se stvari sa klubom nisu završile najbolje.

Novinar Mark Spirs je podelio svoje iskustvo o Slounu koji se nije libio da pre utakmica ćaska sa novinarima u medija centru.
Jerry Sloan was amazing to be around. He would come eat in the media room before every game and chat with the scribes he was comfortable with. Imagine talking to a NBA coach pre-game now and getting some insight, life talk and great jokes.

Bil Rasel, čovek koga često previđaju u priči o najboljem svih vremena je takođe odao poštu nekadašnjem treneru Jute.

- Naše saučešće porodici i prijateljima Džerija Slouna. Počivaj u miru, treneru - napisao je Rasel.
Čikago Bulsi su se od svog nekadašnjeg igrača i čoveka čiji su dres prvi podigli pod svodove svoje dvorane oprostili kratko "Originalni Bik".
“The Original Bull.”
Rest in peace, Jerry Sloan ❤️

Od Slouna su se na sličan način oprostile i brojne druge ekipe u NBA, ali i igrači, treneri i novinari.

“It was a privilege to play against a Jerry Sloan coached team, I always knew that we would be severely tested. His overall philosophy on both sides of the ball was fundamentally solid and always one step ahead of the game." pic.twitter.com/Xv42JvBmO4

Wonderful four-minute film on Jerry Sloan … as consistent in his approach, first as a rugged player and then as a legendary coach, as the NBA has ever seen https://t.co/q9btJK1lCp

I learned so much about basketball sitting at the bar with Jerry Sloan and his longtime assistant Phil Johnson. They were beyond patient with a young, dumb reporter. And Jerry never made excuses if his team lost-which wasn’t that often. RIP to a great, great coach. https://t.co/PaQLnMLn1j

I loved everything about Jerry Sloan, from the way he played to the way he coached. He was a tenacious competitor who represented the Bulls of the 70s so well. Jerry became one of my favorite coaches when he was on the 1996 Dream Team staff and it was an honor to learn from him. pic.twitter.com/pEhbmiFbzp
