the thing is...there are better coaches...than Ty...if you want me to name
names....let me start with Lionel Hollins and Nate Mcmillan...although
Nate's offense is one of the slowest...he did take a broken down blazers
into the playoffs several times...and almost upsetting top seeded teams..im just
Regarding my comment "Ty is doing some of the best" I didn't say
all of the best. In all of the years I have been at court side watching the
Jazz, I've never seen Jerry give many minutes to rookies. Even Stocky rode
the pine that first year until Ricky got hurt. D-Will rode the pine until
Larry's famous closed door meeting. Jerry never called a timeout during big
runs by other teams, Ty calls them immediately. So some of his coaching styles I
prefer. Jerry did a fantastic job with the best point guard in History helping
him. Ty now has Burkes blossoming into a real NBA star, and the Jazz are
competing. I think Ty is doing the best he can with what he has. I could be
critical and say that Kantor could be used more, Clark is a talent wasting away,
but these aren't all Ty Corbins calls to make, team development is a
management, including Jerry, job. Do I think there are better coaches, yes,
worse ones too. I still think the Corbin haters have other issues. Tanking is
not going to happen now. This team is getting better.
You Ty Corbin haters sound, and some of you are probably the same ones, that
wanted Jerry Sloan fired 20 years ago! For the first 5 to 10 years you guys made
the same argument about Jerry. I hope there is any crows left among you after
Jerry was elected to the Hall of Fame to share with the Ty haters!
I really don't understand the tanking mentality. If you have confidence in
your players and the way you develop them, it shouldn't matter where a team
lands in the draft. Look at how well the Jazz have done in drafts over the
years. They got Bryon Russel at 45, Millsap at 47, Stockton at 16, Malone at 13,
and Jeremy Evans at 55. People misjudge players all the time.
I wish the Jazz would just tank, Than at least they would get a consolation
prize for not making the playoffs this year.
@ VeraLouise:It's not that people who don't believe Corbin
is a great coach don't like him. He's a nice person and very
likable.But when people like fortydam says that Corbin has been
doing the best coaching since the Jazz have been in Utah, one has to wonder what
side of the bed he got up from this morning. Wow!The team's
numbers have consistently gotten worse almost every year since Corbin has been
the Jazz head coach. Even with 2 higher profile, higher performance
players like Jefferson and Millsap, combined with other proven veterans to go
along with our multiple young first round lottery pick players, Corbin still
couldn't get the team to make even the lowest playoff spot last year. That
team was terribly inconsistent, usually attributed to coaching. Corbin had never had any head coaching experience at any level before his
current job and it has often been evident in multiple ways. The Millers have
been financing his OJT.And after starting 1-14, there was only one
direction to go. I seriously doubt any other NBA team would hire Corbin as their
head coach if he was available. No credentials.
Apparently tanking isn't part of the plan anymore. Little Andy is correct
by the way.
I agree with Abeliever. I don't understand those of you who don't like
Ty Corbin. If he is so bad, then how come the players are getting so much better
for the most part and learning from their mistakes? Who gets credit for their
progress? JazzBear? Go Jazzboys tonight! I hope Trey dazzles his
Michigan fans and doesn't get the jitters.
I'm with you (abeliever). Dear little Andy, I hope you like crow feathers.
I've had season tickets since the Jazz moved to Utah, and I think Ty could
be doing some of the best coaching I've seen here.
Dear Little Andy, Ty Corbin is doing exactly what management wants
out of him,to win games and develop the core five. The core five is averaging
from 25 to 36 minutes a game each and now with all of the team mostly healthy
they are winning games. Corbin has done a great job of getting Jefferson and
Marvin minutes to help stable the team and also develop the core five. I believe
Corbin has done a great job of coaching under the circumstances and should get a
three to four year contract extension. Great job management and coaching.
My dream is to have the last year on Ty's contract be set in stone. If by
playing RJ so many minutes will bring on a good trade for pieces I will gladly
eat my crow. But to help RJ get a new contract should not be the plan..
