I thought Sloan was an in your face coach with quick feeback on what you needed
to improve. Maybe I did not interpret DWill's comments right but it sounded like
Sloan did not give feedback on what to improve or why you got yanked. If an explanation were to affect team chemistry I can see why Sloan would not
give any. Figuring it out on your own does not sound like a good
coaching technique to me. Different personalities would come to vastly different
conclusion, most of them would be negative and probably wrong. It
certainly would not give you confidence.
WOW KOC might finally make a big splash and get Morris Peterson ( tongue planted
firmly in cheek ) I am sick of the Jazz not ever making a impact trade, its sad
when trading for Kyle Korver is a big deal. The way things are going you should
try to move Boozer and AK to the Rockets for TMAC and Chase Budinger just rid
ourselves of his horrible contract.
"Coach (Sloan) is not the type of guy who's going to come and talk to you and
tell you anything, really. You've just got to kind of figure it for yourself. So
I just tell them, if you feel like they're good shots, keep shooting them. You
know, what can you do?"So basically Sloan just teaches the same pick
and roll, and a few other thing's he's always taught, at the beginning of the
year and picks up his 5 million, or something paycheck? If I made that kind of
money I would be non stop studying in the off season on how to improve the team,
instead of plowing fields in Indiana.
trade MIles,kosta for Camby need defensive minded backup for Memo.
Trade Miles,Koufus for Camby need defensive minded backup for Memo. Please
Connor make a move.
Jerry is an excellent coach:WISE WORDS: Williams had advice Sunday
for the likes of swingman C.J. Miles, who sat in Saturday's first half after
apparent poor shot selection."I just try to tell them you can't
worry about getting pulled out of the game," Williams said. "You know, I've been
there. My rookie year, some games I'd start, the next game I wouldn't play, the
next game I'd play 30 (minutes), the next game I'd play two, didn't know why.Jerry is clueless
They should also be searching for a new head coach... just a thought...
Eric Maynor and Wesley Matthews...maynor got dumped...matthews got
benched...slone got brevin hart
Okur is a tall center, so you would think, why is playing on the perimeter of
the Circle. He hits his share of 3 pointers, however, there are many who can
shoot 3 pointers half his size. Okur is not a hustle type player, if the ball
comes to him he sometimes gets it. The Jazz need a tall center who can rebound
and play defense, who plays with "guesto". Desire is half of winning. I do not
see that desire in okur.
Please correct me if I'm wrong but D-Will should have added in his advice:
"While Coach is not one to come to you to talk, he is more than willing to talk
IF YOU TAKE THE INITIATIVE AND GO TO HIM." This was proved a few years ago with
AK. IMHO, this is another backhanded jab from D-Will publically undermining
respect for his coach — this immaturity from our team’s
“leader” makes me SICK!
How about searching for better players?
...to step in!
to Better Advice from DWILLMaybe he is right. Would that be so
difficult to comprehend? By the way you are "sloanaholic?"Nooooooooo
Finally Dwill is stepping up and being a team leader since Greg Miller won't
stand up. Dwill is totally right. Jerry has lost control of how to coach his
own team. CJ plays well and Jerry benches him when the team is desperate for
Todd - What in the world does your post mean?
If the Jazz "lacked energy", then why in the world didn't Jerry bench the
starters and put in the rest of the team for awhile to give the starters a
break. Koufos and Fesenko would only be tired from traveling because they
haven't seen much playing time. It would at least be a different look on the
floor for a period of time. And they certainly couldn't have performed any
worse than the Jazz did against Denver. Pathetic!
then dump Miles
It is the same story week in and week out with this team. I think we need to
get a life and do something constructive rather than post the same depressing
and pointless things. This franchise is not going to improve this year without
trades or bringing in some fresh head coaching blood. Plain and simple. I don't
care how much money O'Connor makes to do what he does, or how long Sloan has
been involved with the NBA. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see what is
wrong with this team and to see that this franchise has become stagnant. This
season is just like every other in the last 20 years plus. Wait until next year.
