Larry Miller wouldn't have let this happen. Greg is dumb enough to keep
Corbin and some of the Warier castoffs plus Williams and Lucas. He will let
Hayward slip through his fingers and draft dead beats.
Well said RV
As Jazz fans, we knew that this season was going to be a tough one. Rebuilding a
team always is ... especially if you're doing it with little to no veteran
leadership and a coach who really isn't up to the job.When the
season ends, I believe the Jazz will let Corbin's contract expire, wish him
well and look to hire a new coach. That move alone should stir a lot of renewed
interest from fans and encourage Jazz players that hope is on the horizon.
Three good things about this season:1. Experience for the
youngsters, though not as much I had hoped for.2. Alec Burks has proven
he's a keeper and should be re-signed.3. A high draft pick will soon
be in the Jazz' pocket.
Rush, Biedrins, Jefferson and Hayward will likely all be gone by next season.
The first three because they really haven't given Jazz management any
reason to keep them and Hayward because his agent is going to demand a big
contract. Also, it's no secret he wants to join his former college coach in
I thought no one wanted Hayward? you all criticize how awful his shot is...if we
sign him...and he gets poor percentages again...despite being a 2 way
player...people would criticize again...and would begin to compare his contract
with AK's contract...make up your mind people...cut him loose...if you dont
like the guy...i think the pressing need for the team is to get a coach...
I guess the test now will be how they bounce back, recover and move ahead after
so many negative challenges (and comments here), no matter who was responsible
for this situation. As Jerry Sloan always said, don't hang your head or
feel sorry for yourself, move forward (or something like that). Just to get into
the NBA, these kids had to be winners and not used to losing in this manner. It
must be really hard for them at this point....Coach Corbin as well. Even though
I feel bad for all of them, I am optimistic that they will be professional and
handle what they need to do to improve and move forward....against whatever odds
or wherever they end up.Go Jazzboys on Friday!!!
Sure, he deserves some of the blame for his ballclub's putrid showing, but
certainly not all of it.I say Corbin deserves all of it. Inept
coaching and game management is the best you can say for him. Guess Jazz
management deserve some blame because they sit there and let it happen.
How can anybody be surprised about having a bad season when you lose Jefferson,
Millsap, Mo Williams, Randy Foye, Demarre Carroll, etc. I was absolutely shocked
when they let all of those players go. You need some veteran leadership and good
supporting role players on your team to be able to compete in the NBA. Was the
front office thinking straight when they lost all of those players? Picking up
Andris Biedrins and Brandon Rush were both poor player acquisitions; giving that
money to charity would have been far better. Many people feel that the Jazz
have done better than expected based on the young inexperienced players that
they have. I put the majority of the blame on upper management not on the
players or the coach. We have had some positive things happen with very little
As Bill Clinton stated, "it all depends on what the meaning of
'is' is". In the race for the bottom, this has been a very
successful season. Actually, you can look at the victory over Orlando in a
negative light. Right now, they could be tied with Orlando for third from the
bottom. The Jazz are only doing what they have to do. Corbin is under strict
orders and is doing what he has been told. The NBA just needs to take a long
and hard look at the way that the draft is handled and the large number of teams
who make the playoffs and exit quickly. The Jazz are looking for a good draft
choice and a number of good free agents with the cap space that they will have
after the three bench sitting Warriors finish their contracts. Meanwhile,
players have developed and it would appear logical that a new coach will be
brought in to tie the bow on the package. This had to be done and I hope that
it works out for the Jazz.
It was one thing to let Jefferson and Milsap(both all stars) go, but Lindsey got
nothing in return!! Then he frittered away most of the support staff without
getting the rookie point guard anyone to school him in the jazz offense or the
nba. Getting one player won't cut it for this hapless mess of a team
especially if Lindsey screws up again and loses Hayward.Then
there's the sorry coaching job. Note to Corbin, this isn't the same
Jefferson! If you are going to rebuild, don't play the old guys. PLAY THE
KIDS! Call a time out to stop a run occasionally.We usually come to
slc a couple of times a winter to shop and watch the jazz.... Not this year, and
maybe not again. We tripped to Portland. I don't even watch the jazz on
tv anymore. I know, I'm a bad, fair weather fan, right. Have been for
thirty plus years along with my six sons but until Lindsey is gone I'm not
an nba fan and won't spend a dime on the jazz.
To me it's a sad state of affairs when the fans (green seats) have to
determine that we need a coaching change. I thought Lindsay and O Conner were
supposed to know these things. Many fans could see Corbin "was not" the
coach for this team several years ago. If Corbin comes back next year the Jazz
Get one good lottery player, and lose another one (Hayward) who has some
experience. Net math=same
@Mr. HollisIt just strikes me odd when I read sports writers making
comments that a season "can't end soon enough". Is covering the
Jazz such a terrible job? Maybe you and I should change jobs for awhile. I wish
the Jazz were better, and I have confidence they will become better, but I never
want to wish a season is over. If I had my way the players would get a couple
of weeks off after the playoffs and we would jump right into a new season. I
just love watching the game and every game the Jazz play is a new chance to see
how guys are developing. But I guess that's just me. Sorry Mr. Hollis that
this season is so painful for you to perform your job.
1-14 to begin the season doesn't bother me, 1-14 to end the season does.
