A Fitting Tribute

The D-News is reporting the potential liklihood of the Utah Jazz honoring the deceased legend of Salt Lake City and former owner of the Utah Jazz, Larry H. Miller.

"The Jazz likely will retire a number in Miller's honor and may even someday erect a statue of him to stand alongside those of John Stockton and Karl Malone outside of EnergySolutions Arena."

How cool would that be?! Putting up a statue of Larry H. just behind those of Karl and Stock. I can just imagine it now... A statue depicting a heftier-set man, with a round 'Santa-like' belly, a slightly balding combover, a friendly smile with an out-reached hand (You know this guy!), and of course, unusually-larger-than-normal, constructured elbows... perhaps even a tear coming from off his face. I can't wait for the day! Perhaps the Jazz ought to retire a 'collared-golf shirt' or 'softball jersey' instead of a 'numbered Jazz jersey' for Larry? That would certainly set him apart as "Father" of all things Jazz.

All kidding aside, I really do think if they retire some sort of uniform for him it should be a beat up polo shirt. The same way that Stockton and Malone's retired jersey's are old school and Horny's is new school, you gotta give him the look people remember him by.
