I'll have more on Jerry Sloan's resignation in tomorrow's Bee, but it's worth mentioning that his last victory as a head coach was Utah's 107-104 win over the Kings on Monday at Arco Arena. Interestingly, Arco is also the place where Hall of Fame point guard John Stockton played his final game.
What comes as absolutely no surprise is that Sloan's longtime assistant - and former Kings head coach - Phil Johnson resigned as well. Sloan and Johnson were the NBA's version of an old married couple. They were inseparable, even after 23 years. One-time Kings swingman Tyrone Corbin steps into Sloan's massive boots immediately.
