I have to agree with Jazz Source and The Final Word...a lot of people was
knocking off Jerry...but...i think...we really have to break away from that
mold...i think today's NBA is no longer the NBA where Jerry's system
would be efficient...but...Jerry is 100 times better than corbin...if we were to
change coaches...i wish its from the Frank Vogel mold...a guy who understands
his X's and O's...a guy who would not be afraid to go back to the
basics especially with the core 4...the coach should have a system that revolves
around defense and sharing the ball...Jerry...is a very good coach...and any
team would be lucky to have him...
I have always been a big Jerry Sloan fan. I used to tell people that if I could
choose 1 guy to walk down a dark alley with in the middle of some gang
neighborhood, it would be Jerry Sloan. He was a bull dog that you wouldn't
want to mess with, even in his 60's.
Pediction: jazz lose by 20. And I have been saying the same thing about Watson -
he doesn't belong on the court anymore. He belongs on the bench, yet Corbin
keeps playing him. Burks should be the backup point guard.
I don't think I have ever seen Corbin make on the fly rotation changes that
respond to the flow of the game, on court performance. This really hurts us. Good point B.Russ about Watson getting more minutes than players more
deserving. I find it particularly stupid that Kanter in particular, who has been
playing better than Jefferson the last month, is not getting more burn. I cringe every time he is substituted out for fat albert.
This team isn't going to recover until next year when they have players
with contracts beyond this year and care about the future of the Jazz! This
team has given up!
Watson is getting more minutes than Burks, Carroll or Kanter? No wonder we are
losing games. Corbin can't coach but he is doing a good job of leading us
to the lottery. Kevin O Lindsay let him stay until the season is over, then
issue him his walking papers and bring someone in that can coach.
Corbin was one of my favorite Jazz players and I really wanted to see him
succeed as coach. Instead I'm scratching my head at many of his decisions
and none bigger than benching Demarre Carroll lately. Also having a hard time
getting back on the Mo Williams bandwagon. I think too much Mo too soon has
upset team chemistry, such that it was.
I've never felt so apathetic about a Jazz team. Nothing to cheer for with
these guys. I guess their apathetic play has led to fan apathy. Oh well, maybe
I agree with both Jazz source, and The final word....everyone wanted Sloan
gone..now where are we? At least Sloan got the most out of his players, now
Corbin can't get anything out of his! At least Sloan had the respect from
his players...Corbin can't even say that..Time for a new
Well, all you Jerry Sloan haters where are you now?If Jerry was
operating this group we wouldn't be losing 9 of the last 12 I can guarantee
that and we wouldn't be squandering this opportunity and missing the
playoffs.The Jerry haters would rather be in the lottery though.
I'm sure we will get the next LeBron James at the bottom of the lottery.Take a look around the teams that live on lottery picks. Sacramento
just can't seem to get enough of it.What a mess this team has
What's everybody's over/under minutes for Watson? I have it 18.It's an important game so Ty will have Watson's minutes going
up. I can't figure out that love affair.
Foye should not be starting. Give the ball to Burks. I would like to watch the
game tonight but Duck Dynasty will be on. After the disaster thats about to
happen in Texas the Jazz will be below 500 and out of the playoffs.-
I'm so done with this "must-win" discussion every game now.Please. You lose 9 of 12 with this deep of a bench there are 2 serious
problems.1. A pathetic coach and Corbin clearly qualifies.2. Gutless veterans who have showed zero ability to lead and play hard.I was at that poor excuse of a Knick game the other night. Absolutely
despicable and the worse loss of the season by far. A team in this situation
coming out with a performance like that on their home court is inexcusable.My opinion is the players have quit on Corbin. There is no regaining
that once it happens. Since we all know Jerry is back in the hunt for a job
they should rehire him but Gregs ego probably won't let that happen. Once
Greg backed D-Will instead of Jerry, that ultimately put an end to the culture
of winning here. Now we look like so many other pathetic NBA franchises. No
identity and no leadership from the bench or floor.I'm glad all
these guys are free agents because it is time to unload the deadwood. They have
demonstrated their inability to grasp this playoff opportunity.
