"He brought a lot to the game". He's a throwback, a blue-collar guy, a dirt farmer. He's loyal. He's a hard worker.

As a player, Sloan played on the in 1965-1966 Baltimore Bullets and the Bulls from 1966-1976.

Darrell Griffith, who along with Eaton has his number retired by the Jazz, echoed Sloan's impact on the franchise. He still ranks in the top five in Bulls franchise history in points, rebounds, games and minutes and remains the only National Basketball Association player to average more than seven rebounds and more than two steals per game in his career.

Sloan spent 23 seasons as coach of the Jazz, from 1988 to 2011.
