'Legacy assured': Jazz icon Frank Layden came to Utah a coach but became much more

SALT LAKE CITY — Frank Layden was known as a funny man when coaching the Utah Jazz, but moving the franchise to Utah in 1979 was no laughing matter. Layden questioned the decision at the time, saying "there's nobody here." But he helped bring the team to Utah and made sure the team stayed in Salt Lake City. The former president and coach of the Jazz still lives in Utah and recently celebrated his 90th birthday.

Utah Jazz Coach Frank Layden On Michael Jordan: "He's Got The Wrong Number On. It Should Be 007, He's Got A Licence To Kill."

Few people expected Michael Jordan to rise to the heights that he did when he entered the league. Jordan was selected third overall in the 1984 NBA Draft. And while people thought he could be a great player in the league, it was surprising just how great he became. Jordan's impact on the league was immediate, and within the first 4 years of his career, he established himself as one of the best players in the league.
