Johnson....Maybe you should try Smith or Anderson for a screen name......That
would be more original
Get a real name and stop copying real people.
Brahmabull...I am right here. Check the +/- for the game last night. CJ was
the only one with a positive number. Get your facts straight before you write.
CJ should be starting and playing 30+ a night. He gets it done on both ends of
the court. When he was on the floor last night, the Jazz outplayed the Rockets.
More than you can say for those great starters you back....
I don't understand the DeMarre Carroll signing. I mean, I liked watching him
play with a Mizzou jersey on, and he's appears to be a hard-working, likable
guy. But how many small forwards do we need that can't shoot? DeMarre shoots
40% from the field--mostly from close range--and will never make anything from
Let's Go San Antiono.
Where is the person with the screen name of CJ Miles today??? He has been
begging for Corbin to play Miles more. So, Corbin played him more last night.
What does CJ do? Well, he came out and bricked several wide open shots. Then he
fouled two times in a row, one was a four point play where he fouled a 3 point
shooter. How is he even still in the nba? He belongs in the d-league at best. He
is terrible in all aspects of the game.
It's just not going to happen with Harris on the floor. There is a good reason
some of these guys have been dealt so many times in their careers. All of our
guards with the exception of Watson, Bell, and Burks look like they sleep
walking. All of them have draw backs. Watson cannot shoot, Burks is a rookie,
and Bell doesn't have the legs at his age to play 40 minutes a night. Hayward is
doing everything well except shoot! Howard should have and still could be his
former animal self. As much player issues, I think the Jazz have an
identity crisis going on. It looks like Corbin is relying too much on Jerry
ball. He doesn't have the point guard to run that offense, and he doesn't have
the experience to create a new offense with the people he has. I don't care who
is in the back court for the Jazz, they just don't move the ball enough to get
anyone good shots. I think several of these guys could shoot 30 a night in
another offense. Think about it, since the Griff left, we have had only a couple
of shooting guards succeed in this offense. So unless we change the high post
pick and roll, from two guys that are poor passing players, (Harris and
Jefferson) then it isn't going to get better.The defense is the same
issue. When Harris and Jefferson are on the court the other teams go right at
them. As good as Jefferson is, he cannot and will not rotate on defense. He has
NO help defense in his game. Harris is not much better. Millsap is trying to
carve out a living with Jefferson taking Boozers place. Paul plays much better
from the post, but with Jefferson in it pushes him to the wing! That is enough
of a reason to bring one of them off the bench and start Kanter in the middle.
It also helps the defense! That is why the second unit holds teams until we can
try and out score them with the first unit that has two people on it that can't
defend. Start Watson/Tinsley Bell, Hayward, Millsap, Kanter. (Much
better defense and some scoring) Second unit Tinsley/Harris, Burks,
CJ/Howard, Jefferson, Favors. (More scoring on this unit, and defensive help for
