Utah Jazz owner Larry Miller dies at age 64

3

One of the best and most successful club owners in the history of the NBA and a great entrepreneur and philanthropist. His impact on the league goes beyond the frontiers of Utah as Gregg Popovich modeled the Spurs after the Jazz - and half of the league has been trying to copy the Spurs. It's a shame he never won a ring, it'd be well deserved. At the very least he owned a franchise that have been offering fun to basketball fans for almost 2 decades. His example of keeping Coach Sloan and getting out of the way of Frank Layden (and now Layden Jr.) is an example to many owners of the league, who are often too kick firing their coaches and executives. Condolences to the people of Utah and to the Jazz organization.
