Comment,I'll leave a comment. Why was Kanter not used down the stretch when
he was tearing it up out there?
Oh Mr. Corbin! Wonderful inspiring comment..."We fought and showed
character". You still lost! I think its time for you to figure out how to
improve your team.
Al Jeffersons comment is my most hated comment by professionals... The old
"we never gave up"....really. Lets consider that:1. The 16
year old that fills sacks with the wrong happy meal each day and gets
fired...never gave up! He just couldn't do his job.2. Mitt Romney
is on vacation today because he didn't win...but he never gave up.3.
Coach Embry at Colorado was fired last week because his team went 1-11...but he
didn't give up.Since when is that a factor in anything??? Let
alone a $10 million guy? Hey Al...how about we agree to pay you $10
million...you on the other hand agree to....ahhhh...lets see....hmmm...oh yeah!!
Never give up!Deal??
There are no moral victories in the NBA. You either win or lose. No team is
rated for good loses.
Same old story.. Kanter's defense and rebounding, (this time his offense
too) brings them back from a deficit created by Jefferson's inability to
defend. When will Greg Miller realize what Boston and the Timber wolves already
knew, you can't win with AJ on the team. As blessed as he is on offense, he
destroys the teams defense. Last night the minute he returned to the game, they
took it right to the rim and had many second and third chances. Have you noticed
that he doesn't even get up and contest a shot unless its the man he is
guarding. He just slides out the way for other guards and smaller players to lay
the ball in. I love the Jazz... but this is getting predictably hard to watch.
Like I said before, no leader.
I watched the entire game last night and what I saw was the Jazz seriously
outmatched by a younger and more athletic team that played with the Jazz for a
time and allowed the Jazz to think they were going to catch up before the OK
Thunder started to get serious at the end. The Thunder looked like they were in
a warm-up practice mode and the Jazz put in everything they had. In spite of
Corbin's comments about character, the Jazz again looked like a bunch of
old guys playing against a team that knew they were going to win but played
around with the old guys to keep them rested for the next night. Except for
Kanter, no one on the Jazz team made a serious contribution. When you staff your
team with D-league players, guys that are 3-4 years past their prime, and
players that no one in the league wants other than the Jazz, the results are
Agree that OK is much better! Also agree that Tinsley, and Watson might not make
the cut on another them. Burks looks to have a very low BB IQ. Gifted, but a
little bit like C J Miles. Hayward just can't shoot with any consistency.
Mo a good shooter, but sub par point guard. Williams, athletic but also not that
sharp of a basketball player. Evans? Why did the Jazz sign him? slam dunks are
just slam dunks! Millsap misused, AJ (I've said enough) Kanter, could be an
all star someday, also misused. Foye, slow on defense, shoots well but
doesn't move without the ball. Corbin..... lost and clueless.
And now we see why the Jazz have lost any chance of being good. Moral victories
are for losers, period. No team with any self respect or with any pride would
ever admit a moral victory.Get rid of Corbin's loser attitude, get
rid of Al Jefferson's selfishness (he's no different than Boozer), and
get someone at the helm who will push the Jazz to be a contender.
al makes 15 mil not 10 to never give up.
There's no such thing as a moral victory. Winning is winning and losing is
losing. If the Jazz believe in moral victories, they need to relocate to Provo.
