    Playing such a large rotation says: we're treating this season as a "pre-season," trying to identify the guys who will stick around for next season, and we're not focused on the current season.

    KOC hates the word "rebuilding." But the actions say otherwise--we're rebuilding.

    As part of this process, we're actually hoping that one of our guys can develop a mid-range jump shot. No hurry developing or trading for a shooter, because we still have another 65 pre-season games to make some decisions.

    i think corbin did that since last year...mixing it all up...sometimes...mixing things too much...can produce inconsistencies...i think his plan for this just to develop the young players...since...we cant win now...might as well develop the thinking of at one point in the game for probably 15-20 mins...Kanter Favors Evans Hayward Burks...would play...this will develop the chemistry between the young guns...once its established and they get to play well together...knowing the sweet spots of each other...they could feed off that...this could very well be our future starting 5...depends whether who we will get on the upcoming draft...if it would be an athletic scoring SF...then Hayward can be at his more natural position at 2...i think Burks can play PG...heck...Hayward can play PG for us...he grew up playing the spot...

    as fans, our expectations/standards for the jazz have always been high, as they should be. if we begin to have a mentality of "oh, they're young and inexperienced" then we're gonna be in a lot of trouble. you don't go to your mechanic and think "oh, he's only been on the job for a few weeks." your mentality is "this guy is here for a reason. he's either gone to school or has plenty of on the job training."

    whatever the case, you always expect more from professionals.

    unacceptable. they're professional athletes that have been prepping for this moment for the past several years in college, with the exception of a few players like miles. that dude just baffles me. bottom line, he's not head strong, never will be. he'll always be a decent bench player. period.

    corbin, rotations aren't gonna matter if your players don't buy into your system.

    Smart to play everyone for a little while. You need to see who can produce, as very few on the team have established their place in that.

    By a dozen or so games into the season, Corbin will know who's consistent and who plays best together and who excels off the bench versus starting.

    The Jazz shooting woes in their first real game shows how much they feel like fish out of water with so many new faces and so little time together. That'll take care of itself over time.

    It's how you finish the season that really matters, especially for next year.

    Wouldn't mind seeing the Jazz do poorly enough to get a lottery pick next year, though. For this team to do well this year is a bit unrealistic. Too many new faces, so little experience, especially with each other.

    As a Jazz fan, my expectations this year are to see certain players develop so that the Jazz future can be bright.

    Patience is a virtue.

    Trying to play that many players is stupid. Play the young guys when they struggle give more time to the vets. Bury Miles and Bell we know what we are going to get from them and it's not good. Start Jefferson/Favors/Howard/Hayward/Harris second unit Kantor/Milsap/Evans/Burks/Watson and run with that unit. Bell/Miles/Tinsley can play when necessary and match ups dictate. The starting five and Milsap should average 30 min a game.
