I'm probably Marvin Williams biggest critic and it spills over to be critical of Corbin for continuing to play him over Carol. I think Carol outplayed Williams once again tonight, but Williams was the most aggressive I've seen this year. Usually he just hangs around the 3 point line and jacks up bad shots but tonight he was going inside and I thought rebounded and played better defense. If he would just play harder like he did tonight I would be more supportive. I still think Carol and Hayward should get more time at the small forward ( with Hayward also playing shooting guard ) but if Williams would play like he did tonight more often that would make me happy. I know when Millsap and Jefferson are playing well it is harder for Kanter to get minutes but the last 2 games Corbin is not giving Kanter enough playing time. Come on coach, give our young guns the time they need to develop.

Where are all the comments calling for Corbin's firing now? Great game. Great defense, great coaching. Go Jazz!

Sincerely, a real Jazz fan.

@ Open Mind
So you are implying that those who question Corbin's coaching ability are not "real Jazz fans"? Can you please clarify your comments? The fact that the Jazz showed desire on one night and decided to play defense on one night does not change the fact that this has been a season-long problem for this team. Lack of commitment on the defensive end and lack of desire on most nights is, in my opinion, a blatent coaching problem (not to mention his crazy substituion patterns).

Comments in general have been pretty sparse this season unfortunately . I'm the only one so far commenting on last nights game and if you read them you would see I have not let up on Corbin just because the Jazz won the game last night. I still believe as before that Corbin is not ready for the head coaching role. I believe he plays veterans to win now at the expense of developing what I think is some of the best young talent in the league. The way things are now we are no better than a 1st round exit from the playoffs and then face the prospect of resigning Jefferson and Millsap at even bigger salaries next year. Playing the young guys more might not help us win more games this year but we have a chance to be better in the future. We can trade Millsap and / or Jefferson for players and draft picks to build around the young core we have. Millsap and Jefferson have been together long enough to become a force but they are not taking this team anywhere. Lets give the youngsters a chance to do better.
