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.
