    A new system...to benefit and develop the talents of Favors, Kanter, Burks, Hayward and Evans...is greatly needed...Evans could be an effective help defender...if you deployed a correct defensive scheme that allows multiple switches and help defense...Burks could be a good Starting Shooting Guard...and Hayward...Heck...i can see him play point...if not...i can see him and Burks running set plays...either player initiating the play...i am impartial with Hayward...just because he passes the ball better...Kanter needs a Big Man coach and so is Favors...i hope both of them know they needed help...and the best person to help them...is Either Karl Malone...Moses Malone or Hakeem Olajuwon...Hayward, Burks and Evans needs a shooting coach...why not the renowed shooting coach that turned down Shaq...forgot his name...i think its Bob Thate...but..the Jazz are too slow...and i think the clips have already hired him...i think its time for ownership and management to accept...that its time to rebuild..and build upon the young talent that they have drafted...and probably add a few to support them

    Our coach doesn't coach. Our guards don't guard. Foye seldom records an assist but gets plenty of playing time. Our starting center doesn't defend. The guys who get the playing time don't want to play on the road. They only play when they are on their home court and held accountable by the fans. Same old.

    Until Jefferson learns to play defense, he should be on the second team. IMHO, he is the main reason the Jazz generally fall behind in the first quarter and have to play catch up ball, also the reason why so many of the teams we play outscore us in the paint.

    I, unfortunately, was at the game...no-thanks to a business trip to Phoenix. With the way they played against the Spurs, I was confident they would come out with a chip on their shoulders and play with some fire.

    Corbin, you just don't get it buddy, and thanks to your awesome coaching, I am down $100. Ya, that's right, I bet a client that amount the Jazz would win...

    I sure do miss the nastiness that Sloan preached to the troops.

    Favors comes back and we break the winning streak we had while he was out.

    I think Bountiful High could out play the Jazz executing like they did last night. To think that any Jazz player should get away with less than 110% effort in every game is mystery to me. If the Jazz cannot play defense, at least play some offense.

    Wake up Corbin. When your team comes out flat there are other players that will pick up the pace. Burks and Evans and Carroll come to mind. Carroll should be starting and Watson should go on to coaching. Burks has been the most misplayed player all year. This team is five hundred at best meaning 41-41. A trade is badly needed.

    I wish the Jazz would quit demanding that we "give the other team credit," after one of these anemic road efforts. Tell you what, Ty and Al---I'll decide how I want to view the loss myself, thank you very much. But I'll make you a deal---I'll give the other team credit after I hear some of the Jazz giving themselves just a little bit more of the blame.

    I'm a big Jazz fan but could care less about this game. Why did the NBA even play games tonight when the country is in mourning over the senseless shooting rampage killing 20 children in Newton!!
