@coleman51don't be too hard on Kevin...first of all...he traded
deron for favors and Kanter...which we could build around and would be solid at
PF and C...he drafted Hayward and Burks...if you are going to say...what if he
drafted paul george...we wouldnt know...because the system frank vogel has in
indiana is very efficient..unlike corbin...having 8 possibly 9 free
agents...this summer is pretty good if you'd ask me...you get a clean
slate...with a core group of guys you would want to build upon....Kevin set up
Lindsey pretty well...and yes there wasn't any trade...but trading for a
bad contract would be bad...so i think the GM's have done good...the
problem is...the coach...he's the one who decides who will play..i hope by
end of season Corbin is fired...and we interview Brian Shaw...or Ron Jeremy i
mean stan van gundy
The Jazz have brought the youngsters along just fine, with the exception of
Kanter. I think he should have supplemented Jefferson at least fifty percent of
the time. The folks that are leaving, needed to be played to see if they would
or could fit in with the young guys. I think it was a transition year for the
Jazz. Again, if you continue to blame the coach on a offensive scheme that was
set up by this organization thirty years ago, then I think you are wrong. Jerry
struggled with the new NBA for years before he left.I'm not a
Corbin fan, but I'm not a fan of the same three set offense the Jazz have
ran for years. Predictable and defensible, especially with a big man that cannot
pass, or play defense.Corbin stuck with Burks for as long as he
could in that first half, he played terrible. I thought the Jazz had good looks
and played fair defense for three quarters. Corbin can't shoot for these
guys, and it didn't matter who he played,most of them struggled at times.
Jerry didn't do any better after his stars left.
The Jazz veterans and the washed-out crew that we acquired this Summer, while
wasting our money, can't even last a full game, let alone a season. Kevin
O'Conner should be driven out of the organization and told never to come
back. Unlike some people in the comments section, I don't blame Corbin and
his coaching staff. They can only play what they have available. It's the
Jazz management who acquired a bunch of old, washed out players that are 3-4
years past their prime along with a group of veterans that cannot play defense.
Obviously, it's frustrating not to see the Jazz develop their younger
players, but the older players have to play because they constitute the majority
of what the Jazz have available. I remember when O'Conner said that his
biggest mistake was not to keep Mo Williams on the Jazz roster. Kevin, the
second biggest mistake you have made was to re-sign Mo when he was well past his
prime and no longer competitive. That one acquisition is the real microcosm of
the Jazz organization and what they have done to this franchise.
What a furious charge when the S,S, Minnow was lost. Gilligan would have been
proud. The starters were playin' like it was a three hour tour. Time for a
Always a treat to see Evans play. He deserves more than garbage time.
I didn't see the first half but I see Burks played just 4 minutes in that
half and the tv guys said he was a little out of sync. I did see the 4 minutes
he played in the 2nd half and he was awesome. If Burks and the other members of
the core 4 play sloppy at times it's no wonder the way Corbin mismanages
their time on the floor. Kanter was great again because Corbin finally let him
play a little. Marvin hit the big shot against the Spurs so now Corbin will keep
playing him while better talent sits on the bench. Tonight Marvin scored 2
points in 23 minutes and that was a layup off a great pass from Kanter. At the
end of the game Corbin had Hayward, Kanter, Evans, Burks and Carroll on the
floor and these guys brought energy and made a big run. It's the same story
over and over and Corbin just doesn't get it.
Time to play the future and the history to the bench. Send the message now and
get it over with. Also, who believes that Corbin has the coaching savy to get
the Jazz to the promise land. I simply have not seen it. Time to bench the have
beens including the coach. I believe Jeff H. would make a brilliant coach.
And the misery continues.This season just needs to come to an end.
Oh, wait, it already has.
Time to fire Corbin. Man is he bad!This summer should include a
cleaning out of these selfish vets. Time to rebuild. And build it
right this time!
