Greg Miller’s Utah Jazz Home Video, May 21, 1988

February 15th, 2012 | by Spencer Hall

I’m not sure how I’m just barely discovering this, but Jazz owner Greg Miller uploaded this home video footage from the Jazz training room before Game 7 of the Western Conference Semi-Finals in 1988. The Jazz would lose that game to the Los Angeles Lakers. Here’s the Basketball-Reference page for that team.

It’s a crazy look at the rarely seen inner world of Jazz pre-game preparation from that era. Bobby Hansen comes off like a clown, and his performance kind of makes sense of the Bart Kofoed incident. Thurl Bailey, John Stockton, Karl Malone, Mark Eaton, and even the late Larry Miller make appearances.

You can watch the entire game starting here:
