Some random Jazz observations:1. Why is Gordon Hayward starting? I
mean his shooting continues to be awful. All jumpers now. IMO he is buckling
under the pressure of gambling/not signing/playing for a better contract. Jazz
very wisely held off2. This team can't defend a fire hydrant
without Favors to make up for all of their poor individual defense. 0-9 without
him now? Considering Miller/O'Conner/Lindsey/Corbin all announced this
season "...would be about defense"...what other conclusion could we
arrive at other than this season has been a failure? (Favors excluded)3. Kanter is Al Jefferson. He is an total defensive doormat. Good/great
offense at times but refuses to defend. He is mobile but simply won't do
it.4. Trey can run a decent pick n roll, has range to make some
deep clutch shots. However, he shoots too many outside jumpers, demonstrates
zero ability to penetrate/create, doesn't push the ball enough, and he
can't score at the rim/get to the free throw line. All ominous signs for a
supposed franchise PG. Let Favors heal...for a month;)Keep losing....get a higher pick.New coach next year.
I have watched the Timberwolves play a number of times this year on NBA League
Pass...In every game they played, Corey Brewer leaked out early and Kevin Love
threw him one of those baseball passes....It was never a secret that Brewer and
Love did this....SO....My question is, why were they able to do this
successfully against the Jazz over and over again?Maybe my question
should be, why do the Jazz continue to put up with this inept individual they
have in the head coaching position? The guy is crushing the spirit out of those
young men. Best example is Hayward, a good basketball player who has totally
lost any shred of confidence; and it reflects itself in his performance.
Kanter is becoming a weapon on offense, but my mom could drive the lane and
score when he's playing defense. If we don't have anyone that can
teach him how to play defense we really need to get Favors back and have the 2
play together so Favors can help cover up Kanters weaknesses.
Gordon Hayward---Ouch! Please tell me Jazz management can see what all Jazz
fans can see. Giving big money to him would be worse than the Kirilenko deal.
Now is the time to fire Corbin and pick someone else. Hayward needs to forget
about his upcoming marriage and play some basketball. He is absolutely horrible.
Should have been traded for draft picks last week but we have Lindsey as a GM.
Wake up Greg. Changes are needed today.
Could be Rick Adelman had something to do with defeating the Jazz once again. I
lucked out in not seeing the mayhem. Adelman has my total respect and of course
can outcoach the entire Jazz coaching staff single handed. He has proved it for
Hayward is not good. Best thing for the Jazz would be for the Celtics to sign
Gordon, the Jazz not to match and then use the money for a free agent.
