It's time to replace Corbin by recycling a former NBA head coach who has established his credentials in developing young players. A Larry Brown type but 20'years younger. Coach Corbin is a nice guy someone you would want for a neighbor but as an NBA coach he just doesn't have "it". The act that the Millers extended his contract shouldn't have any effect on this move, it was a dumb move on their part, Corbin has never shown flashes of brilliance in managing the game and a strong weakness on motivating young guys. Granted management tossed away the best pieces of last years team somehow believing they merely had to plug in all their high first round picks and viola they had a promising group of newbies winning game after game. Nothing shows his lack of court feel more than the final moments of the Golden State game.

It is past the time that Jefferson should be starting for the Jazz. Alec Burks is becoming one of the more dynamic players in the whole NBA and the fact he is coming off the bench is beyond ridiculous. The popular response is that it doesn't matter who starts as long as a player gets his minutes but if you believe that I have some land I'd live to show you just a few miles south of the middle of nowhere. You better believe that other teams that will be trying to sign Alec are going to promise him a starting position. He needs to be starting in place of Jefferson anyway as he has made it clear with his "hired gunslinger" comment that he wants to play for a contender next year. Please give Alec his due and start him and play him the big minutes he deserves.

The season started out with the Jazz being exposed as possibly one of the all-time worst franchises by a one year record in the history of the NBA.

Then the bubble of seeming semi-competiveness appeared as the point guard play improved measurably.

Now the Jazz are looking... again... like the worst franchise by a one year record in the history of the NBA.

The bubble simply removed the Jazz from the #1 position in the history of the NBA as well as the draft.

The absolute nadir of performance came in the game last night when the Toronto player waltzed to the rim with only a cursory wave from Kanter.

What did Jerry Sloan say/do when he witnessed such jackpotting?

1223 victories were the result of someone holding someone else accountable.

For some reason that formula for success seems to have escaped the current Jazz management.

That is some beautiful arm work shown in the picture with this article. Maybe that is what 17,000 people go to Energy Solutions to see. I cannot imagine 17,000 humans showing up for such entertainment.
