A little piece of Utah died today.

After 23 years as head coach of the Utah Jazz, making him the longest tenured coach in any of the four major pro sports, it appears Jerry Sloan's career has come to an end.
Need a reason why the Utah Jazz agreed to a one-year contact extension with Jerry Sloan yesterday.
The Utah Jazz are struggling.
With the NBA set to announce its All-Star starters tomorrow, this is the time of year where blaming the game's fans for ultimately meaningless travesties is at its peak.
I don't know what I'm more surprised about: How funny this video is, or the fact that they got Jerry Sloan to go along for the ride.
Now it's just getting ridiculous.
With the NBA preseason underway and three weeks left until the regular season begins, now's the time when coaches start to decide which players will earn a starting spot or be moved to the bench.
NBA All-Star Weekend is a time when the League clarifies the status of it's players.
Having a good point guard is a must when it comes to winning a championship. With coaches sometimes getting lost in translation during the course of a game, a good team needs someone to direct the show on the floor during the most difficult of times.
While it seems every move that every NBA team plans to make this summer has something to do with LeBron -- from the Chris Paul trade rumors to (obviously) the Cavs' coaching search to even the Clippers' potential ownership change -- one man who could greatly impact the Top-10 of tomorrow's NBA Draft is Carlos Boozer.
With yesterday's firing of Mike Brown, who just last season was named the 2008-09 NBA Coach of the Year, it made me begin to think that winning the award could be more of a curse than a blessing.
We already know the runaway winner of this year's MVP voting, but through the first few days of the NBA playoffs, the crown for unofficial postseason MVP is still being decided.
Unlike this year's NBA playoff bracket, where both 8-seeds are legitimately feisty and each conference has up to four teams that could realistically make the Finals, the NBA awards season is turning out to be pretty predictable.
Even more than MVP, the Coach of the Year award needs a criteria makeover.
