If you would have told me last season that Marvin Williams would be the guy we looked to for toughness, I would have said you're crazy. But I'm starting to think that Marvin is finally figuring out just what he is as a ballplayer and embracing that. When I saw him screaming at himself for finally making his shot two games ago, I was delighted. In this guy--we have a potential leader.

Typical....The article sings the praises of Lucas because he made a couple of shots and got a few assists.....Folks there's a lot more to this game than assists and making shots...there's something called DEFENSE.....Lucas doesn't appear to know what that is, though Corbin did give him an impossible assignment to start the 2nd half....He started him out guarding Igoudala..I had to laugh at that....Lucas is 5'11", while Igoudala in 6'6"....After Igoudala burned him a couple of times, Corbin switched defensive assignments in a manner only Corbin would understand...He took Lucas off the 6'6" Igoudala and put him on the 6'7" Thompson...Oh well!!

I believe most Jazz fans knew this was going to be a tough, rebuilding year. But we didn't think that would entail losing over 90% of their games. Even for a very young team, that seems mostly inexcusable. And for a young team with as much as talent as this team has, it's definitely inexcusable.

In most of their games, the Jazz have showed signs of some real talent. Trouble is, they don't have the consistency to maintain it for longer periods of time. And the motivation to achieve a regular consistency fall back on coaching.

Tyrone needs to change his coaching style, technique or something else to better adjust to the strengths of this particular group of young talent. If he doesn't, Jazz nation will soon be clamoring for a coaching change that will.

Corbin's poor understanding of how the game is played is why he would put 5'11" Lucas to guard 6'6" Igoudala. Most high school coaches would have realized that "That ain't gonna work."

@Tators
It's a bit early to state that the Jazz will lose 90% of their games this year. Over the course of the season, I expect them to improve and finish the season with about 20 wins, most of all of which will be home games. One MAJOR change the Jazz could make to improve their win/loss record is to hire a better coach, someone who really understands the game.

The Jazz are a complete joke, get paid millions to lose every night. Boy how would that be?!. I laughed when I saw Stockton on the news saying he watches the Jazz games when he can, yeah right, who'd watch the garbage they put on the floor? As a huge Duke fan I agree with Coach K that its despicable for teams to tank a season just to get a hight draft pick.

Corbin and his staff clearly lack the ability to game plan. Dennis Lindsey stated that Corbin would be evaluated on how the team progresses, particularly defensively. Well, it ain't happening defensively. In tonight's game, the Jazz have repeatedly left Curry open. Worse is how they play the pick and roll. They go under the screen virtually every time. Halfway through the third quarter and they have yet to trap Curry on the P&R.

the reason Corbin is still there...coz lindsey knew...he can't coach...and we'll lose so much that the NBA would just rig the ping pong balls for us to win...there is no gameplan with this coach...and he doesnt really know how to maximize players....even though Jerry Sloan lacks perimeter D when coaching..i kinda miss him....probably why they got him as a consultant....since after this year corbin would be out...and Jerry would be in...well...that's hoping for something

You might be onto something, Kaakashi. Corbin's ineptitude is part of the plan.
