    Earl came in and did what Deron should have been doing. RUN the ball and PUSH the pace.

    Deron stopped doing it and the team went into a tailspin.

    I wonder why players run for Earl and not for Deron?

    I'm with Panama! For all the posters on here like "Miles" - need to get with the program already. The Jazz's season is pretty much over and if they make the playoffs, that's a bonus. But, this team has a lot of potential and I mean A LOT! We have a lottery pick this summer, a potential superstar in Favors, who has the same vertical as Griffin and wingspan of Tyson Chandler. A solid PG who was an all-star in 2009, AK's 17 mil coming off the books, and trade assets with Jefferson and Millsap. This was a very smart move by the front office. Next year we may see a lineup of Harris, Courtney Lee, Granger, Favors, and Millsap or Jefferson...

    Corbin is just saying, if you read between the lines, that he wants both Harris and Watson to work hard. Harris will eventually probably start, but Watson will have to start until Harris learns the plays. Please don't be so critical. We have new players and a new coach. It will take some time. The Jazz may not make the playoffs this year, but with the picks and the new young players, they should be good down the road. Let's be positive and enjoy the trip. It will be ok!

    Did I just read what I thought I read. Seems to be an epidemic of "I'll Decideidis" with this team. No wonder they can't build any unity here. I thought Coaches were hired to play a player as needed and that players were payed to play. Isn't there any respect for loyalty, unity and cohesiveness as well as responsibility and obligation. Are coaches only a passe tokens or relics of a bygone era anymore??? Watson just made it sound like he's only here to get his ticket punched and to wait for the next train. There needs to be a can of really serious attitude adjustment brought in and opened up here. I'm not sure if Corbin is that type of a coach. Or if KOC is that type of a manager.

    I am not sure Harris is a lot better than Watson.

    The Jazz are not MN. The Jazz have a long term plan that is workable with a few tweaks.

    Adding Favors to AJ and Millsap really nails the front court.

    The wings/PG have to be sorted out in the long run. Favors does not shoot well enough to be the PG in the long run UNLESS the Jazz add 2 wings who can shoot really well.

    Really Corbin? Like Watson is going to be your starter. You should resign along with Jerry.
