I'm hoping the Jazz finally decide to dump Corbin when they get to the 0-12
mark. It's pretty unacceptable to get down to a team by 25-30pts with just
over a quarter played. It's just a mess right now. They say they focused on
defense - what defense? I see the same old thing, they get broken down on the
perimeter and wide open shots all day or open drive to the basket. Whatever
Corbin has been preaching, it's fundamentally flawed. It may be possible
this team barely wins 10 games..disgusting. Why do they still give heavy minutes
to Tinsley and Lucas? They are not NBA caliber players. OK tanking is fine but
getting whooped every game is unacceptable. I hope a change is made sooner than
Real Bass. Interesting thought. Their car business would dry up, but for 250
million, who needs to sell cars.
Maybe these guys were career bench players for a reason?! We could have made
changes without throwing out the baby with the bath. Is this a scheme to
disenfranchise Utah fans so the team can be moved to Seattle? This roster
won't win 15 games.
Both Kanter and Favors has shown they are too raw...Seeing Big Al play...and
learning his moves is great...but imitating his play style is not...i hope
Malone school's these two bigs more...Kanter should trust his range...he
can stroke it from mid range...he should develop it so it doesnt limit himself
to just backing down....Favors would need a lot of time and touches....we are
going to lose 90% of the games anyway...let's make sure to get him 10 to 15
touches a game...let hime work on his post moves...its gonna be a hard 5
I think the Jazz will be more watchable when Evans, Burke and Rush get healthy.
This should mean far less of Jefferson, Lucas/Tinsley and Harris, none of which
would have a place in the league if it weren't for our desire to tank. But
what concerns me is that Corbin, in four years, doesn;t seem to have any idea,
and if he doesn't, then I can only imagine him communicating vague,
incomprehensible jibberish to the players (hence lack of learning of either
offensive or defensive sets, and most importantly an identity). That the Jazz
don't play hard is on the coach.
I'm not even worried. Just give it time and we will have a new coach and
our team will start making the games close. I am 100% okay with what is
happening on the floor right now.
Well, we should have a pretty good idea of who will be worth keeping after this
season.Pretty ironic how in preseason these guys were talking about
being ready to "take over from the veterans" and "we will be better
than many think"Doh!!I really think Hayward is
looking like a star primarily because all the rest of this crew is playing so
bad.Favors is a mess offensively. Just like two seasons ago he
shows the same glimpses of ability. Then you wait for 5 games to get the next
glimpse. He lacks alot of mental focus. He gets pushed around and scored over
too easily yet doesn't do much when he has the ball. I guess you have to
pay about what we did for defensive bigs though.Kanter? Why can he
only rebound on the offensive end of the floor?These two are sure
not proving to be much of a defensive duo despite the stats showing it was the
case last season.Our PG situation is horrific.Everyone
needs to move on from last years players. Millsap had great games for us too.
Then he would disappear statistically for weeks.
Amazing! This team has no direction, no motivation, no idea what to do out there
on either offense or defense.....and here we have a sportswriter who watches a
game where they give up 115 points, and he's bad-mouthing the
offense....labeling it a "can't shoot straight"
offense.......Listen up, Mr. Hollis....With a decent defense, 91 points wins a
lot of games....but you seldom win a game where your defense gives up 115....Further....A week or so ago, Corbin was talking about how they had
worked more on defense than offense...Then last game he was commenting on how
the offense struggling was causing the defense to struggle...an untenable
statement. Anyone who's played church ball has had nights they
couldn't throw it in the ocean, but they were a demon on defense.Your defense of Corbin is noble, but the fact stands that HE is a huge piece
of the problem. He needs to go.
Corbin is doing a terrible job of playing the hand he was dealt. This is now
going on his fourth season with the Jazz as head coach. I wonder how much longer
we will have to watch him struggle.
It is Corbins fault . You said it Lucas/Tinsley have the worse shooting
percentage.No defense, plenty of minutes = Jazz lose.. If they ard benched now
it will still take a few games to iron out..
Another side effect to this poor play is the loss of respect from the refs. I
sure it wouldn't have changed any of these thirty point blowouts, but the
Jazz are getting hammered inside. I noticed it more last night and in the Suns
game. It shouldn't matter if they're loosing or unknown rookies, the
refs need to be consistent. Kanter and Favors both got pushed and in some cases
pulled by the arm right out of the paint, allowing drives to the basket. All of
them either got bodied or their heads taken off when trying to finish. On the
flip side, when they tried to play physical they were rung up. It seems that
this team can't shoot from anywhere on the floor. I noticed that Corbin
limited Burks from handling the ball, he dribbles around too much. Ian Clarke
(slow start too) is at least quick with the ball and his passing. Please let the
ping pong balls bounce our way...
When you mentioned fg% of the utah players like lucas and tinsley, I did a
cursory check for this season, with 7 games done. almost all players have dipped
from last years %'s in both fg and 3pt with the exception of hayward whose
fg% has improved. Also almost all are registering their worst fg% in their
career! yikes. This does not look like an temporary setback to me. Something is
seriously wrong with the coaching, preparation or the offensive sets. Or is it
the hornacek leaving after effects? ie., was he the reason for the better
shooting these past years? I dont think jazz management can deny it any longer,
they have a serious coaching situation which should be set right asap!
Paul Millsap, 8-16 11 +23 18 pts why is it a good idea we let him go? He still
could have started at the PF and Favors at the C.
Record setting Jazz in the making. They are so amazing and will break so many
records too bad it will be for the worst ones.
