Utah Jazz honor late owner Larry H. Miller

The Utah Jazz honored late owner Larry H. Miller by retiring the

No. 9 and renaming the court at EnergySolutions Arena.

The Jazz unveiled the No. 9 – Miller’s softball number – jersey

in the rafters next to the team’s other retired numbers during a

halftime ceremony Wednesday night when Utah hosted Phoenix in the

regular season finale.

Miller died in February 2009 of complications related to


Miller’s family and former Utah players, including John

Stockton, were on the court for the ceremony and a few fans chanted

“Larry Mill-er!” as the teams warmed up for the second half.
