I agree with Sir Charles and to even give Harris a message I would start with1. Tinsley2. Burks3. Hayward4. Favors5. KanterWe cannot do any worse than what is happening so far2nd
Unit1. Harris / Watson2. CJ3. Howard / Evans4. Milsap /
Evans5. Jeffersonand bench Bell period
Two of the reasons Barkley is a high-paid analyst is he is often right and he is
entertaining. Playing the young Jazz players should prove often right and very
entertaining. Slam dunk!
Good comments guys. I agree. So go young, push the ball up the floor and get
after it on defense. Let's turn this thing around and enjoy it! Go Jazz!
I can tolerate losing much easier if I know it is because we are giving playing
time to our young players who need playing time to develop. I can enjoy the game
by watching to see how the young players are playing and progressing but with
Big Al in the game with Favors , Favors doesn't see the ball and when he does he
isn't getting the ball in an area where he can be most effective. My
starting lineup would be:BurksCJHaywardFavorsKanter2nd unitTinsley/WatsonHarrisHoward/Evans
MilsapJefferson , Bell can cheer lead from the bench.
It sounds great to play all the young players or whatever but ultimately it
won't make any difference. The young players, even at the professional level,
need coaching and development which they aren't going to get with this regime.
Otherwise, they are just running around playing lousy basketball. Sorry Jazz
fans, it won't matter if the Jazz go young or old, expect more of the same...
Let's see a lineup ofPG-TinsleySG-Howard or BurksSF-Milsap or EvansPF-FavorsC -Kanter or Jefferson with 2nd
unit ofPG-Harris or WatsonSG-Hayward or Burks SF-Evans or
HowardPF-Milsap or Jefferson
@ Old Timer,I think you've got Hayward and Howard mixed up.
Hayward's the young SG, and Howard's the older, experienced SF.I
also think Watson should start at PG with Tinsley backing him up, and Harris and
Burks backing up Hayward at 2. Play the most minutes for whichever PG is
producing, and same for SG backups.I do like Charles' idea of going
HIRE THAT MAN AS OUR COACH!
I think the Jazz either need to start CJ in place of Bell or trade him.
