    Fire Greg Miller...He's a spoiled rich kid that doesn't represent his father very well!!

    Starting over with Jefferson, please watch the entire game, including both ends of the floor. It takes a special bunch of guys to play with this offense, and the ball stopping in the post 75% of the time. It's predictable and easily defended. Mo was the biggest disappointment of the season, Jeffersons complete breakdown on defensive rotation was the second.. The jazz need more than a turnover in older players, they need an offensive makeover. If that means getting a new coach so be it, they need some offensive imagination. First they need a true and gifted point guard. Second they need some pure shooters, not slashers! Marvin turned into a glorified Brewer without the bent elbow. Watson and Tinsley really, these guys might not even start in the d league. Millsap is a great player, putting on the floor with big Al killed his game, and in the end it looked like he was lazy and ready to play anywhere but with Jefferson. Remember you can change players, but if everyone knows what your running, it all turns out the same. See Jerry Sloans retirement. The new NBA left this system a long time ago.

    Keep Al Jefferson, let the rest go. Problem is, Big Al won't be back. Favors, Burks, Hayward, Kanter, Carrol = heart and future. Love these five - ship out the rest, build on these guys, have a down year or two while they work up to competetive level while drafting some studs for the future. This is the way to build back up, not signing a few journeymen to plug the holes and be in the 7-10 spot in the West with no chance of good draft picks and a continual battle to get into the playoffs just to lose in the first round. Stop the insanity. We don't have Karl and John anymore so start over please!!!!!

    DeMarre Carroll never left the bench last night which leads me to believe that Corbin wasn't even trying to win.

    PATHETIC attempt by all. Milsap=6 points. Really? Foye and Williams 7 and 8? Those three have to go (along with Corbin)! AJ at least has shown some heart recently. No one else stepped up.

    Another 3rd quarter meltdown doomed the Jazz. How much longer will this be tolerated?

    How is the glorified used car salesman (Greg Miller) going to Tweet his way out of this one?

    I wish there was a Mark Cuban like Fan...that would just buy the Franchise...keep it in Utah...and Fire Corbin...make it a winning Franchise...Dallas maybe out this year...but they have the Cap space to lure CP3 and Dwight...

    Wow. Great to see these guys get blown out in such a crucial game. Ridiculous. At least go down swinging!

    Corbin can't coach but I'm afraid he'll be back next year. The offence of a high school team has more discipline. Corbin is proffered as being smart but keeps Foye in the game when he can't stay with his man, keeps Milsap in the game when he's dominated, let's Mo play out of control, plays Marvan over Carroll, Lets the game get away from the team in the third quarter without timeouts. PLEASE FIRE CORBIN

    Incredibly weak showing for a team who's season is on the line!

  • Veracity Morgan, UT

    This team lacks heart, talent, urgency, depth, desire, poise, athletism, shall I go on...

    The Lone Peak team could have kicked their tails tonight...I hope they are all ashamed, but like most pro players, it just means they get to vacation earlier...

    Maybe we need to pay them many more millions...sure why not, we've done it for years now.

    What a pathetic joke...

    The most pathetic effort I've seen from a team whose season was on the line. They were lucky to score even 70 points. Obviously, some substantial changes need to be made, starting with the coach. He's the one who directs the attention and directionof the team, which this team was truly lacking. Otherwise, it won't matter whatever other players are signed.

    If Corbin ain't gone in two days every Jazz ticket holder should cancel their tickets. Any offense that has Favors shooting from the top of the key three times in a row in the third quarter doesn't deserve the name.

    I expect to see Kanter and Favors starting in the front court next season. I expect John Stockton to invite Alec Burks up to his house for some intensive PG work over the summer, since I expect to see Burks play some point next year along with subbing for Hayward at SG. I expect the Jazz to draft C J McCollum this June, but the Jazz need a long-armed scorer at small forward, too, similar in size to Marvin Williams but not Marvin Williams. I wish all a good summer.

    What a disappointment but at least the agony is over.

    And mercifully, the season comes to a close.

    @Uncle Rico

    Nobody said MLS was the best league in the world. Nobody said RSL's players are the best in the world, but then again neither are the Jazz's. All I said was RSL's players have a committed owner, a top-notch coach, play hard, play to win, and love to represent Utah...unlike the Jazz.

    Re: Brave Sir Robin

    RSL? LOL! Real teams play in Europe.
    MLS is a minor league for the European leagues, good players play in Europe.

    SL Bees > RSL

    The Charlotte Bobcats might be looking for some fans...

    Can we get a new owner and a new coach please?

    Greg Miller and Corbin have about as much enthusiasm as a dead slug.

    Thanks for getting us through a long, cold winter, Jazz...now step aside and let a real team (RSL) take it from here. You know - a team that plays hard, cares about winning, and has players who actually want to be in Utah.

    If any other team aside from the Jazz is looking for a fan please send me a resume because I have been a Jazz fan far too long. This game sums up the heart of this punk team.
