Journey back to 2003…
Awesome feature on the coaching job Jerry did in the first year of the post-Stockton-to-Malone era (2003-2004), when many “experts” predicted that the Jazz would win the fewest games in NBA history.
Jerry’s message to the team during training camp that season: “I want you to succeed, and you’re going to succeed a lot better than a lot of people think you’re going to succeed. We’re not going to win only 8 games like some people think you’re gonna do.”
Starring crazy AK hair (look for him on the bench at 1:35), young Raja (1:28), Phil Johnson’s magnificent mustache (2:00), and probably the wackiest tie Jerry ever owned (2:07).
Warning: The background music and Jerry getting emotional when they ask him about Bobbye’s health might get the waterworks started.
