Thibodeau and Sloan catch a game together

By Jeff Case

Not sure what to make of this one, but when you’ve got a Hall of Fame coach (and former Bulls employee) and one of the better coaches in recent memory (and a former Bulls employee) watching a game, it’s pretty cool.

A fan at last night’s game between the Portland Trail Blazers and Utah Jazz snapped a photo of former Jazz coach and HOFer Jerry Sloan taking in a game at EnergySolutions Arena. Who was sitting next to him? None other than former Chicago Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau.

Sloan, who coached the Bulls from 1979-82 before becoming a legend in Utah, often watches Jazz games and serves as a team consultant. Thibodeau coached the Bulls from 2010-15.

    Potential Nirvana for viewers: When will TNT or ESPN or SOMEONE wise up and have the broadcasters for an NBA game be folks like this sharing their observations with each other while watching the game, as if they aren’t even aware they are on the air?

    They are just two guys who ARE COACHES, who love the game. They can’t get it out of their system,All Basketball junkies are like that !! coaches or ex coaches are basketball junkies
