That's 5 minutes I won't be getting back.

Thanks for the funny reference to the movie "Princess Bride."

I believe Larry Krystkowiak would be a good coach for the Jazz. Would he be the best choice? That I do not know, it really depends on who else is available.

The Utah connections, however, are undeniable with Johnnie Bryant and Alex Jensen whom I would keep, the rest ... probably gone.

There's a reason krystkowiak is coaching at utah, and it isn't because he is destined to be an NBA coach. To the contrary it is because he isn't NBA coach material.

Sounds good to me. The Jazz need a change and a little supernatural help won't hurt.

That was a fun story. But April 1st was 13 days ago.

Give Kevin Ollie a call. He has a degree in Communications, and these players could use someone who can communicate, plus knows how to win. Corbin went to school for Computer Science. So if the Jazz want to keep him with the franchise, put him in front of a computer and let him keep score. Just don't make him an analyst, no one could understand what he is saying anyway.

Coach Krystko's coaching philosophies would certainly translate to the pro game, but I hope he settles in at the U of U and doesn't look too seriously at leaving for the NBA again in the future. My guess is his name will pop up in relation to several coaching searches, college and pro, following the 2014-15 season.


Nice piece of fiction. Grade F! While Ty has faults every one forgets the circumstances he has been forced to deal with. That's sad and bothersome at the attitude of Jazz fans. Much of the blame belongs to upper management! Lindsey made up this roster looking to the future ignoring the need for veteran leadership and continuity Paul Milsap could have provided! Milsap has improved every year in his career. He was sorely missed this year. These young guys were not ready for leadership roles. Gordon Haywood was a disappointment as a leader because he was asked to carry too much. Milsap would have lessened those burdens for Haywood. Lindsey is responsible for the season but Ty will get the blame!

That was dumb. Utah suffers many of the same issues the Jazz do. Why would they hire him?

Ha ha that was a great, entertaining article. It's funny how people get so serious about things. Learn to laugh people!!!

Ridiculous article. No way in this world will Krysto be coaching Utah Jazz. This article should have been scrapped before anyone dared submit it. Do you not realize that the Jazz share allegiance to the coach they hire? Corbin will get them out of this mess, just like Frank Layden did.

Salt Lake City, UT

Props to a local radio station for pointing out how this fairytale doesn't make any sense. If a "curse" befell the Jazz when Eric Murdock left the organization, then Eric Murdock is the one who must return to set things right.


What did I just read?

Wow, Nate is stretching a lot to make these connections. I don't see this happening. Coach K just signed and extension designed to keep him with the Utes for at least a few more years. I'm sure the Jazz could offer him more money, but I think he likes what he's doing at Utah and will stick it out.

Have you EVER heard coach Rose mentioned for ANY job? Didn't think so. I don't ever want to see Coach K leave but you shouldn't underestimate his coaching abilities.

Actually, Dave Rose was mentioned as a candidate for the Oklahoma Job a few years ago. Also, there were other jobs that he was offered that were not revealed to the public. Coack K will probably receive the same offers.

I should know better than to read an article that says "for the Deseret News." I'm not sure what that designation officially means, but they all seem to be like this one.
