Jerry Sloan | May 22

The Hall of Fame coach, who led the Utah Jazz to its most successful seasons, died at 78 following bouts with Parkinson's disease and Lewy body dementia. Sloan was an 11-year NBA veteran but found his calling on the bench, where he won 1,272 games with the Bulls and, most notably, the Jazz. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2009 and also coached a pair of Hall of Famers in John Stockton and Karl Malone. The Jazz played in two NBA Finals under Sloan.
