Darrell Griffith, from Dr. Dunkenstein to Donovan Mitchell
A lot has changed since Dr. Dunkenstein arrived in Salt Lake City back in 1980. On this episode of The Note podcast, Darrell Griffith joins us to reflect on the frustration of his early years in the NBA, playing for Frank Layden and Jerry Sloan, and his relationship with current Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell.
"I didn’t think we would make it" — Frank Layden looks back on 40 seasons in Utah
New Orleans was Frank Layden’s favorite place to scout games as a matter of convenience. Back in the 1970s, Layden was an assistant with the Atlanta Hawks and Louisiana was just an hour’s flight away. He could fly in, watch his team’s upcoming opponent, and be back in his own bed by midnight. Perfect.
The affable coach from Brooklyn couldn’t have known back then where those trips to the Big Easy would eventually take him—or just how hard that journey would be.
On this episode of The Note podcast, Layden reflects on the early days of the Jazz’s move to Utah; the trade that brought Adrian Dantley to Salt Lake and the decision to send the legendary Pistol Pete Maravich away; his choice to hand the coaching reins to Jerry Sloan; and why, 40 years later, Layden still calls Utah home.

How did I not know this was a thing? Really awesome podcasts and i think the variety of guests is spectacular. Keep feeding my Jazz addiction!
The Boris Diaw interview was just terrible. Did you guys do any prep work before having him on? The questions you asked him were ridiculous and stupid. On top of that I could barely hear him talking. I’m sorry for the harsh review and harsh words I really am. However, the Boris interview was just awful. There were so many better questions you should have asked him. Again I’m sorry but I was disappointed.
First time listener, but really enjoyed the content. I subscribed and will keep listening!
