This should also be a big season for the Coach. He needs to start having other
teams play against his matchups not visa versa. If he can't win with this
talented team then he should be told to pack his bags. I would feel more than
comfortable with Horny as the coach, but am wishing Coach Corbin does well.
This is a playoff bound team this year, I'm not sure about 6th, we could
easily be better or worse depending on our chemistry, but I like the team. I
have no delusions of a championship run unless we pull off some sort of 2004
Pistons synergy. I think the starting lineup goes like this: Mo, Hayward,
Marvin, Favors, Al. I think Milsap is a better all around player than Favors
currently is, but he has made it clear that he wants to explore free agency. If
he is unwilling to commit to the team, he should come off the bench. IMO he was
always more effective off the bench anyway.
Kanter is looking slimmer for sure in pic...he will need to be quicker to get
around some of the bigs he plays against, since he doesn't have the leaping
ability of some power forwards and centers. He will still bang, but he needs an
assortment of moves. His recent work with Kiki should help. I hope he plays some
PF with Favors at center this year. That could be the starting combo in the fall
6th best team in the West, at best.
I know that I will get trashed in this section for my comment, but it sure would
be nice to see the Jazz get to the NBA finals. I know folks will call me a
dreamer or living outside of reality, but it still would be nice. Go Jazz.
