Here's the deal. Companies are usually looked at in a favorable light that promote from within. However, when a company is not successful, maybe you do need to go outside the company to bring in new ideas. I would like to see the Jazz more aggressively seek more experienced people that have shown a pattern of success than just move up people in the organization that I think has underperformed under the current coaching staff. I know some feel like Corbin hasn't had a great point guard to run the team so it's not fair to judge him too quickly, but I think there are problems with substitution patterns, under utilizing the young studs, and teaching defense to name a few.

Other than John Stockton, Karl Malone and maybe Williams who have the Jazz had that have led them anywhere? Jazz have not had a great record for quite a while. I don't a great deal in the future either.

You only have to look at the Spurs to see an example of a coaching staff that can develop young talent. Duncan was of course a number 1 pick in the draft but Leanord was 14, Parker at the end of the 1st round and Gibinobli in the middle of the 2nd round. That is the core of the team that could have won the championship this year. They know how to draft, then they know how to develop the talent. I think the Jazz seem to find good talent, but Corbin seems content to let them ride the pine too much.
