If the Jazz where truly going to be worried you would see more stern comments by Team Captains Coaching staff or even owners. Looks like everyone is just going to settle for good enough. No real aspirations for greatness from any one in the Organization.

I'm a huge fan of the Jazz, but honestly...now...this is a team playing just for fun. As long they sell the season tickets and getting people in the games they're good!

Dear Mike Sorensen, why are Jazz writers lobbing softballs to Corbin when you can read our comments and see how frustrated Jazz fans are. We're tired of Corbin's "I'm proud of the guys determination" and the "I need to put the best guys on the floor" baloney all while he keeps playing veterans that the Jazz can't afford to resign and the fans don't want back next year anyway. We want to see the core 4 playing significant minutes every game because we see their potential and feel Corbin is not developing the future. Ask Corbin if he thinks it odd that the Jazz have the lowest scoring starters and the highest scoring bench in the NBA and have him explain why that makes sense. If your winning that's ok, but if your losing that's a problem. Why has Kanters minutes dropped back to garbage minutes and why is Watson and Tinsley playing at all? Please stop letting him off the hook by not pressing him on the issues that Jazz fans really want some explanations on.

The strategy of the Jazz is clear. They just want to keep losing so they can get a better draft pick. They know that they'll be losing most of their players anyway.

On that same note, you might want to ask why Jazz writers are lobbing softballs to Greg Miller. He's where the problems begin. Why isn't anyone asking him what his business model is? I've heard rumors from within the organization that his business model is to squeak into the playoffs (where he can sell more tickets without paying more salary) with the cheapest budget he can. That's not how you win championships - you win championships by forking out the dough. But that's not what Greg Miller wants.

@Brave Sir Robin

Yeah I know and I have expressed my frustrations with Greg Miller on the comment boards more often recently. I think Greg deep down inside wants to sell the team so he doesn't even need to deal with them anymore. Then he can focus on selling cars and managing his race track. I for sure will never buy a car at any of their distributerships if they sell my Jazz to an out of state concern. I'm with you though in that I would love to see the Jazz sports writers ask him some hard questions!

Follow up,
I have not sensed this much frustration with Jazz fans before. Even when Stocton and Malone left and all the NBA gurus were saying the Jazz would be the worst team in the league, Jazz fans were patient and knew we needed to rebuild. I think everyone was surprised how quickly the Jazz brass and Jerry Sloan made the team respectable again. But this time it's different because the cupboards are not bare this time. We have some great lottery pick players that show promise and yet we struggle to be average because Corbin won't give the keys to the young guns. We have given Jefferson and Millsap their due time and its not going anywhere. I don't care if we miss the playoffs by starting the core 4 and giving them big minutes right now. I would rather see that than playing the veterans, getting the 8th seed in the playoffs, then getting swept again.

The bottom line is that the 19.9K Arena at home is carrying 8.4K in attendance and going South. The young players are exciting and kids drag their parents to games in order to watch them. AJ and MSap are "old and expensive newspapers". Play the young guns and they will surge into the playoffs on enthusiasm alone. It is obvious that they are going to miss out on the playoffs with the current lineup. I would say that Corbin is now "on the clock".

It is clear you do not have a team focused mentally for productive defense results, for defensive execution and effort is just not present; team defense is not well coordinated and cannot be, for a good team can still remain in contention in a game if they place fine defense, and modern NBA basketball has lost the ability to play as a team.
