    There are a lot of complainers, and listening to them is comical. We hear arguments like, if KOC really cared about winning he'd get us a big man with ball handling skills who can control the paint, command double teams, pass, block, dominate Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum, etc., etc. Until we get rid of KOC and sloan we won't win a championship because they won't bring this player in because they like Boozer instead.

    Of course, forget the fact that this player is entirely fictional. He doesn't exist, and if he did the chances of him wanting to play in a small town market with bad weather is pretty slim. Also, forget the fact that this player would cost lots of money, and we would have to dismantle our team to afford him.

    I don't understand why people can't be happy with the fact that we have one of the most consistently successful franchises in the NBA. Old rivals like the Bulls, knicks, and heat have fallen to the ages, but the trusty Jazz are still in title contention where they have been for decades.

  • Knicks Pick
    March 6, 2010 5:20 p.m.

    The Knicks have the 5th worst record.

    It gets better...only one team in the NBA has more road games left than the Knicks.

    The Knicks have 13 of their final 21 games ON THE ROAD!!!

    What GM was it that acquired this pick anyhow?


    We could either get a heck of a player or use it to acquire something else.

    Either way it is going to be nice!!

    Guess who has the best record against the top 8 seeds in the W. Conference?

    Cleveland Cavaliers.

    Guess who is #2 in the league?

    The Jazz.

    The myopic mopers here on this board though are sharing their deep basketball knowledge about how important and more concerned they are about losing to bad teams than they are about who beats the best teams.


    Last time I checked the Jazz will be playing the best other 7 teams in the W. Conference in the playoffs NOT those in the lottery.

    Listening to Todd though I guess beating those lottery teams is very important to him.

    If he has his wish the Jazz would play the lottery teams in the playoffs so he could make his point.

    Talk about missing the forest for the trees.

    Sorry to burst your bubble but when I hear stories of championship teams I fail to recall them discussing how well they played those lottery teams. Seems to matter a bit more how they play the other top teams.

    Who looks at the Jazz roster and thinks these are NBA champions?

    Not many.

    Yet here we are...the Jazz within 1 1/2 games of the Nuggs and a possible top 4 seeding in the playoffs.

    We all know they aren't going to beat the Lakers but the Jazz are playing pretty well with the talent and the genetics they have to put on the floor.

    This team is too short. Plain and simple.

    Sloan is doing a pretty good job with what he has.

    Jazz cop and Todd look for every scintilla of problem they can to magnify and complain about the status of this team.

    FACTS say that the Nuggets have lost to more bad teams this year than the Jazz. Why don't you complain how pathetic, unprepared, or how poorly coached they are?

    Once a Sloan basher always a Sloan basher.

    Even a fleet of Phil Jacksons could not coach these midget impaired jazz players to a championship so stop asking Sloan to make a silk purse out of a sows ear.

    By the way, Phil Jackson never won diddly without "coincidentally" having the #1 player in the world on ALL his teams.

    Ditto, Steve!

    A few of Sloan's weaknesses as a coach have bothered me over the years, but I can't think of a single person to replace him that would coach here.

    The only way Utah will ever get another shot at a championship is to get lucky in the draft---possibly with the Knicks' pick this year.

    Winning has to do more with talent than coaching, although you could submarine great talent with a poor coach, which Sloan isn't.

    Everyone loses games they should win occasionally. The Cavs lost a game to Washington earlier this year, and the mighty Lakers have also dropped one to the clips. It means nothing.

    To all you people yelling for Sloan's head, here's a question that never seems to have occurred to you. Who would you have replace him? Where in the world are we going to find an unemployed coach who is more successful than Sloan?

    Even if you consider people who would never be available, there are only a handful of coaches who can hold a candle to Sloan. Phil Jackson is amazingly successful, but he'd never come to Utah. Besides, he's successful because he only coaches teams with the best talent in the NBA. He's a good coach who's career is inflated because his history of being in the right place at the right time keeps him in the right place at the right time. Pat Riley isn't doing too great in Miami. Karl and Popavich are great coaches, but they are on great teams already.

    Before you insist on firing Sloan maybe you should think of a replacement.

    I would agree more with Jazz Cop over your takes

    If jazz cop iq is -10, it is infinite your rating''

    Lucky to have Sloan?

    The Jazz happen to be a very talented team, they should win

    Imagine where we would have been if O Connor had the ability along with Greg blessing to try and seriously field a championship contender.


    Yeah the Clippers are so great..That is why after beating us after 44 minutes of zero effort, they got blown out in theyr'e next 2 games at home

    No less than Sacramento, Minnesota and Cloppers all went into losing streaks right after beating us

  • todd "a little birdie told me"

    Now we will see Blauche and Doug come on here and tell us we are right on pace due .82 games com and theyr'e brilliant basketball minds that the Jazz are right on pace to win the world title

    Do you ever stop to think about your silly comments before you start tapping the keys on the computer??

    The Jazz are just smart enough to realize how lucky they are to have Sloan and the fact that your basketball IQ i a _-10 should tell you to stop pounding the keys on stuff you have no clue of..

    He has done MIRACLES with the level of talent he has to work with. PERIOD!!

    Clippers sail to a victory. Sloan is bewildered and blames loss on inexperience, yet claims it is up to the players to motivate themselves. Managment will extend his contract for life.

    lets see how the jazz start tonight, how long is sloan going to keep mathews in the starting lineup? he could also be spreading out the minutes of the front line by playing another center besides okur,
    but leave it to sloan.
