Friday evening was surely a night that Jerry Sloan will never forget. Not only was the Utah Jazz coaching legend honored by his former team, but he also received a letter of commendation from President Barack Obama.

It reads as follows:
Dear Coach –
Congratulations on your long and remarkable career with the Jazz. Utah justly honors you for the standards of excellence you set with the Mailman and Stockton. But us Bulls fans still claim you for your grit and work ethic.
Best of luck in the future. With great admiration,
[Thanks to FTW]
