I agree with the Rock Monster on this one. Time for a coaching change.
Corbin's contract is up, so the Jazz don't have to fire him. Just go a
different direction.Rock, when you mentioned the 4 coaches.... I am
going to add 5 (Popovich) to your list. Unless there is something I am missing.
I agree. Corbin has done a lot with not much but it is probably time for a
change. But hopefully as Rock suggests, the Jazz will give him a worthwhile job
in the front office.
I rarely read the Deseret News. Brad Rock reminds me why I need to. Well done,
good Sir. You're dead on with this one.
I think the idea was to judge Ty this season not so much on the win/loss record
and player developing and cultivating a "defensive culture." Are the
players improving offensively - yes. Are they improving defensively ... anyone
... anyone .... anyone... Buhler ... Buhler ...
The Energy Solutions Arena has a lot of rest rooms. Tyrone Corbin could be the
new potty cleaner, but I would rather just send him out of town permanently.
Nice Richie, we can always count on you for those kind of wonderful words.
I agree with Rock, but where do put him? Rock stated the obvious, but offers
not solutions or answers. Probably because there isn't a good answer. Pay
Corbin his money, thank him for his efforts (I have met him and think he is a
great person), and wish him the best in the future.
I am a devoted fan of the Jazz and I totally agree with their approach this year
in creating an opportunity to develop the "Core 4" and Burke this year.
But after almost 1 full year of this experiment I have to believe that
management has some serious gas pains on just how high they see the ceiling for
this group. Some of these guys have been around long enough so that, if they
were going to be able to dominate, it would be far more evident than it is right
Please people! Ty Corbin has been doing his best as well as doing what the front
folks wanted him to do. He was handed a bag of worms right from the beginning
and handled it with dignity and the gentleman he is. I don't know who could
have done a better job, under these difficult circumstances. I support Ty Corbin
wherever or however he ends up. I hope we still have a place for him. He is the
epitome of a gentleman!GO Jazzboys until the bitter end! Many of us
are still supporting you in your growth!
I even agree with most of what Rock said. I disagree about the players. Jazz
have the people to have been a competitive team. All they need is a coach.
I always liked Corbin as a player but bottom line for me, a long time season
ticket holder, is that he couldn't get the team to play hard. That's
all I really care about. I can live with a poor record. But I can't buy
tickets that are really expensive to watch players that don't bring it
every night. Corbin was lying when he said the guys are fighting
hard. Sorry but that just isn't true. Maybe on a given night it was but
not for the season. I could have Corbin as coach if he could get his
players to bring it every night. But apparently he can't because I thought
their effort was pathetic most nights.Give me a Ronnie Price or someone
like that that leaves it all on the court. Even if we lose I can call them my
Coach Corbin is an honorable guy. He played for Ray Meyer at DePaul. Some
coaches just are not head coaching material. Just ask Joey Meyer. Hopefully,
the salary cap will allow some free agents with the salary boost from the
expiring contracts of the "Warrior Three". I am intrigued with the
signing of Erik Murphy. Hayward will probably break the bank and for that
reason could go to the Celtics. The Jazz have a nice core. So far, the
decisions of management have been very good. Actually as bad as the Celtics
record is, the Jazz may want to work out a deal of Hayward for their draft
choice if he is leaving anyway. The key to the puzzle will be a good coach who
works well with young players. That could mean bringing in a college coach.
Calipari is probably going to the Lakers and the Celtics have Hayward's old
I think Corbin is an excellent assistant coach but maybe wasn't suited or
rose up to the head coaching position. Sloan was effective because he demanded
respect and had the temper and skill to deserve it. Corbin is too timid and
ineffective in motivating the players to play their best. We all love him, but
that doesn't get wins!
Yep. Putting seats back in the seats is going to take a big move. Getting a name
player or two will help but replacing the coach is a necessity. Corbin's a
great guy who deserves a slot in Jazz management but coach isn't the slot.
I was skeptical from the beginning about letting Jefferson, Milsap and others go
after last season. Yes, we have good young talent that needs playing time to
develop, be why are we developing that talent at the top level? Don't we
have the D-League for that purpose? That being said, I am not convinced after
watching the last 3 seasons that Corbin is NBA head coaching material, even
though I like a guy with his level of patience and his demeanor. Ty Corbin is a
credit to the organization and the state, but probably not the guy we need at
His new position could be as a cashier in the concession stands.
Ben H. The D-league is worthless for player development. Nobody in
the D-league plays defense at all.
Why stop with Corbin...Corbin as well as the players have mocked the
suggestion they are tanking...If the Jazz are not tanking...they are
indeed the sorriest collection of NBA coaches/players to ever accept a paycheck
in the history of the franchise.By record they are not the worst...
that would be reserved for 1974-75.There were 18 teams in 74-75.Today there are 30.Today there are people in the NBA
collecting paychecks who would have never been a part of the League in 74-75.
Rock is right, Ty has earned the Miller families support. Jerry will need a good
first assistant and Corbin would be a great fit. Jerry will put fans back in the
seats and Ty can tweak the players talents while Jerry makes it all come
together. The bigger question is can management get some type of talent (any
talent) to help. Ty is a class act all the way around.
Why isn't more being said about the architect of this disaster? Lindsey
dismantled a good team that needed some tweeking. His leadership has been
dishearting. He should be forced to spend the next 12 months as Corbin's
driver, both on their way out of town!The Miller's were duped
by Lindsey into dismantling the jazz, who have gone from a respectable franchise
to a joke and afterthought. Lindsey must go!!!
