    You realize that you are all contradicting yourselves when you complain about our winning percentage, then encourage the idea of trading Jefferson and Milsap right? If Kantor and Favors were starting, we would see our wins go down immediately, and we probably would't see the playoffs for a couple of years. You can't have it both ways. Either we keep a winning record now, or we build for the future and accept our losses. Burks and Favors still play out of control, and Kantor is too excitable when he gets the ball. Also, who would back them up? You are also forgetting one important fact, if Corbin were to be fired, and Jefferson were to be traded, you would have to find a new reason to whine about the team. It used to be Jerry Sloan that could do nothing right, and now you seem like you want him back. Make up your minds.

    I like that Williams & Haywards injuries have opened up time for Burks to get more minutes. Favors, Kanter, Hayward & Burks are the core future of this team and they need all the playing time they can get to develop. The best this years team will do is 7th or 8th in the west and a first round playoff exit, so developing players for next year is more important that wins right now anyway.

    "Asked how his team can slow down Thunder stars Paul Millsap and Al Jefferson, "

    Was there a trade I missed?

    What exactly is going on with Hayward's shoulder. At this point, I think keep him out until the all star break. I mean it must be getting weaker big time. After Hayward can use the shoulder, let him build it back up before he comes back.

    Without Mo Williams, Earl Watson and Hayward, the Jazz have nobody other than an aging Tinsley who is playing too many minutes to break down a defense and run the offense. Coaching is not as bad as some want to believe. With the injuries all to the players that can handle the rock, it's hard for the offense to have any ability to sustain sets consistently throughout a game.

    Lindsey said. "I think a lot of credit goes to Ty (Corbin) and the team that we've been able to stabilize without him."

    Utah has gone 4-4 without Hayward in the lineup

    Who is going to raise the bar for this team and coaching staff. Stbilizing must mean like a ship half full of water may make it to port under the tow of a tug boat. Rent a coach for a night or two and see what happens....maybe even Harpring.

    "Lindsey said, a lot of the credit goes to Corbin and the team that we've been able to stabilize without him (Hayward), Utah has gone 4-4 without Hayward in the lineup."
    Holy cow!, is management thinking 4 wins and 4 losses in a predominantly at home schedule is a sign of stability. I know at least 2 of those home wins were in overtime too ( including Sacramento that we should be pounding at home). Management will never feel it necessary to get a new coach when their setting the bar for Corbin so low. We have the ability to have won all 8 of those games, or at least gone 7-1. This 4-4 record with the schedule we've had is very poor in my opinion, even without Hayward's services.
