I am a Jazz homer but I seriously doubt the Jazz make the playoffs next season.
There are soooooooo many new guys that the chemistry just won't be there yet. I
like the talent but alot of it is extremely young which means we will get
exactly zero calls and a whole load of inconsistency. One night
these young guys will look like the leagues future and then the next you will be
thinking "who drafted these guys?" Such is life with first and second
year players..lots of raw talent but an inability to use it consistently.You will have to win alot of games (10 games over .500) just to get an 8
seed in the West...unlike the East of course where you can probably get in with
a losing record. The Jazz follow this mantra...consistency and
chemistry gives you a chance to win. When they re-tool they do it big time so
that guys can grow together and develop chemistry. The salaries on the Jazz are
piled up so that core guys stay together as long as possible and then rinse,
I would hope it is Karl Malone. He comes in and gets the bigs to toughen up or
else trade them away for someone who will toughen up. This team has lacked
toughness since he and Harpring left the Jazz. Matt Harpring...another possible
candidate for assistant. Either one would be perfect fit.
It's going to be a former college teamate with Thurl Bailey and former NBA coach
Sidney Lowe. Just might be a real good hire.
Karl Malone.I'm calling it.Or not.I'm
calling that too.
