Almost three years after his surprising resignation, a banner with (Jerry) Sloan’s name was elevated into the vicinity of signs that honor legendary Jazz figures Pete Maravich, Frank Layden, Darrell Griffith, Mark Eaton, Jeff Hornacek, Larry H. Miller, Hot Rod Hundley, Adrian Dantley, Stockton and Malone.

Once the Jazz finally convinced Sloan to let them honor him — and it took some serious convincing — the organization brainstormed putting “1223” on the banner that was raised to the rafters during Friday night’s touching ceremony.
