I am so tired of the Jazz tanking. I can not wait until the NBA stops rewarding teams for loosing. This is only teaching self destructive play. I wasted money this year getting the NBA league pass.

To me, it's just going to be a lot more interesting off-season than regular season. I didn't expect the Jazz to be good this year and have commented about that many times. I do want to see us secure a high lottery pick, which we are on the path to do, then see what we can do in the free agent market with a ton of cash the Jazz should have at their disposal. Corbin's contract expires this year too so we have to wait and see if the off season brings a coaching change for next year. The Jazz are really poor executing on the defensive end and I'm not smart enough to know if that's the players fault, or poor coaching. Hopefully the Jazz brass have better ideas about that and will make the right decisions this off-season.

you do know that the current team really has no shot in making the playoffs this year...especially with Corbin at helm...i'd rather get them get a good draft position...than see them suffer in the middle of the pack...always a first round exit or a fringe playoff team...but looking at what the young guys have accomplished...they'll probably a fringe playoff team...

I fully understand that the Jazz are not an amazing team that could do wonders. I miss the thought of teams playing hard each night no matter what. To loose on purpose will not teach young guys how to win. Yes I can see how you would want a high draft pick, but would you not rather each team get rewarded for how hard they work?
