Fights between a player and a coach have been a part of the game, it happens. It definitely seems to be happening more often than not these days, but they've always happened.
The latest came today when news that a rift between Utah Jazz star point guard Deron Williams and coach Jerry Sloan led to Sloan resigning after almost a quarter of a century in Utah. It was the end of a partnership that was never able to get over the hump in the Western Conference and the end of a brilliant coaching career in Utah for Sloan.
These are the tales of feuds that didn't end well, that didn't result in championships or glory, instead ended with infamy and bad blood. These are the tales of sideline fights, heated arguments and hurt feelings.
They are the player-coach feuds that ended badly.
