    Ask again in a few weeks when the losing has set in and this team is well below .500.

    A coach that continues to play Harris despite his consistently poor performance and routinely being outplayed by his backup?

    Probably not hallmarks of great coaching.

    I have no problems with him except that I feel that every once in a while, the wrong players are in at the end of the game. Still, they're all pretty inconsistent and who's to say who might execute best out of--say--CJ or Gordon Hayward? This guy can coach. His defensive philosophy is sound and works to a tee when players play sound d every moment they are on the floor. He has helped turn Big Al into a better defender and (this season) players are active and cutting when Al takes the ball down low. This is a big improvement. I know we are going to see some tough days ahead and it will be interesting to see if Coach Ty can keep them tough and competing regardless of setbacks.

    The jury is till out on Corbin. He has great blood lines with his connections to Ray Meyer and DePaul. So far, it is obvious that he has been doing a good job. However, he has to be looked at over long range. They have a terrible guard situation. Harris commands big money, so he can't be gotten rid of. He is an albatross. It would appear that Tinsley is the best of the lot and they won't play him because of money committments. Millsap is the heart of the team. His committment is genuine. Big Al would be a great second line player behind Favors. He is just not a number one go to guy. He takes close to 30 shots per game and Millsap only half that amount with similar production. Before the trade deadline, the Jazz have to make a move. They have to remember that they are not playing for this year. They need to build around the "power pups". That makes Jefferson expendable. It would also help the fan base to blend in a few foregn players to go with the very likable Kanter.

    I like him. He is doing a great job trying to win and also trying to get the young guns some playing time.I like that u get playing time by your actions on the court. Keep working hard and we will get the results we all want.
