The Jazz really hit everyone's heartstrings with a video honoring their coaching legend Jerry Sloan after he passed away due to complications of Parkinson disease and Lewy body dementia. The four minute video chronicled Sloan's life from rural Southern Illinois to being an NBA All-Star in Chicago, and then transforming to coaching legend in Utah. It was a video that will give all NBA fans, especially Jazz faithful, goosebumps to see all of the great things Sloan accomplished.

The four-time All-Defensive First Team player was the Bulls first franchise player. He was the leader of their team for 10 seasons. If you ended his career right there, he would still be known as an NBA great, as Chicago retired his No. 4 in his honor.

Sloan coached Utah for 23 seasons and led them to 18 playoff appearances, including the team led by Karl Malone and John Stockton that went to back to back finals. The Hall of Fame coach finished with over 1,200 wins, which is the fourth-most in NBA history.

This video was an emotional video tribute to one of the greatest coaches ever, as it brings back some great memories for fans, and remembers Sloan for what he did best: playing and coaching basketball.
