DeShawn Stevenson, who now plays for the Dallas Mavericks, said that Sloan "had one style and it was hard." Sloan, he affirms, was tough like the John Deere apparel he so frequently wore to practices and on his days off; after 23 years of coaching, however, Sloan said he was simply too tired to continue coaching.
Rick Carlisle, the current coach of the Dallas Mavericks, said that Sloan's coaching style had inspired him to become a more competent coach who makes quick adjustments during games - characteristics Sloan is famed for. "The guy has stood for everything that's right about our league for such a long period of time," Carlisle said. "I've been studying his team for over 22 years, and he has been a master of adjusting to the way the game has changed, the way his personnel has changed … his contributions to coaching and coaches have been gigantic."
