    dont know the name...but steve kerr's shooting coach would be ideal...for a shooting coach...for the big man coach...it should be a guy with unlimited low post moves...a rebounding guru...it wont be hakeem olajuwon...since his post style caters to quick and agile players like himself...unless..Kanter - Big Al - Millsap - Favors...are just as quick and agile...then it would be a hand in glove fit...

    I doubt that Karl Malone will be added to the staff but it would great for the Jazz to bring him in (from time to time) to work with the Bigs. There many things he could teach Favors about playing the Power Forward position.

    Karl had a craftiness that people often forget. He also had a knack for slapping the ball away and occasionally, would get an opposing player to fall flat on his face by suddenly stepping out his way; instead of pushing up against him as he approached.

    The person they need to get is Pat Ewing. He is a good big man coach. He could compensate for the Jazz shooting coach.

    For the past 4 years CJ's shooting average has been going down. Is the shooting coach helping? If so please stop. He realy helped Fesenko who got paid a million dollars a season but was ineffective as a shooter and was abysmal from the free point line.

    Corbin will be challenged to raise this years Jazz much above a lottery team. But with a short season, the losing should not be so bad and then the Jazz can again draft in the top 10.

    For this shortened yet intense season the team needs Sloan. Malone would not be anything but window dressing, although he would be a good replacement for Anna as a coach on the biggest loser.

    I'm really upset that they couldn't get the mailman in as a coach. I don't know if Corbin can coach. I bet he will be in the bottom of the pack again this year, the only good thing about that is we might get the number one draft pick. I hope I'm wrong but I don't thing so. I was going to buy season tickets but not now. The Jazz will not get any better until they get a real coach.

    I would like to see Akeem ( however you spell his last name.) He may still be tied to the Rockets. Let them have Fess for him.

    As much as I would love to see Karl on the Jazz bench again it's not going to happen Jazz nation. Malone ruffled too many feathers in the front office when he went on his rant after Sloan retired. I don't know who it will be but I am about 90 percent positive it will not be Karl Malone.
