As long as Corbin sings out to Lucas "sit by me" Jazz will be much
better. Like most fans I would rather see the kids getting more playing time and
developing than the older vets playing. Even if they lose the game. That
decision is in Corbins hands..
Stand by me? Easier said than done.Lots of people asked
for the youth movement not fully understanding how bad it would be. They
didn't understand that the reason Hayward could shoot 40% from 3 point
range was because Millsap and Jefferson drew all the attention down low and Foye
got the rest on the other wing.That being said lets analyze what
else has happened. Favors and Kanter now suddenly have to carry bigger minutes
and are too tired (or busy trying to not get in foul trouble) to properly defend
the high pick and roll. As a result offenses are feasting on it. It collapses
our defense to cover it and the perimeter is left open to rain down threes which
teams are happy to do nowadays.Favors got 8 rebounds last night. He
was averaging that last season with 10-12 less minutes. Kanter seems incapable
of a defensive rebound but only decides to be top 5 NBA in offensive rebounding.
What?Many of the fundamentals are not being enforced by Corbin.
Players continue to get minutes despite not bothering with fundamentals and bad
defensive lapses.Defensive team? This team is horrible
defensively.These players have talent. The coach? Not so much.
"Franchise's front office sends a message to fans: Stand by me."Translation: Please continue to buy badly overpriced tickets and ugly
jerseys featuring the names of players who would do anything to play anywhere
else so that the Millers can continue to not invest in the team and instead
spend your hard-earned money on crab legs for their luxury box.
Whoever put this team together should be fired! We used to drive to slc to
shop, spend money and watch the jazz. Not this year, not for this team, sorry
merchants, sorry hotel and theatre owners. You can all thank Lindsey for this!
