Utah Jazz Truth: Deron Williams and Jerry Sloan Drama Doesn't Matter Anymore

Everybody wants to know exactly what happened to cause Jerry Sloan's sudden resignation from the Utah Jazz. 

Truth. Everybody wants it, but only the exclusive have access to first-hand information.

And after collecting and looking for the most sellable and persuasive data, the truth comes out. It wades through multiple filters, perspectives and eventually falls into the hands of those dying for it. 

So what can be more relative and contextual than information coming from the media? After all, isn't it their job to predict what other predictors are predicting, so that they can release the most speculative possibilities first? 

It is no longer the sports media's job to find truth or present information neutrally. The journalist's new job is to ask questions that force players, coaches or executives to answer ambiguously. The truth becomes interpretable and watered down into possibilities.

And after Jerry Sloan made his announcement, they served up drama because there was no other way.

Now, it's been cooked and burnt from every angle. The extremes have been laid out and the truth lies somewhere in the middle.
