    sad to say...but corbin would still be blind...once the vets come in...we all know where his loyalty is at...and he would probably the first to defend and say to bring back big al and paul back...i dont want to be the start of a negative vibe here...but once those two stays...the core 4...would probably be gone....

    I wish no ill will to Jefferson and Millsap but I wouldn't mind seeing those 2 rest their injuries another few games and let the young bucks get big minutes on this upcoming road trip. It's not that I expect them to win more road games with this lineup but the more chances they get on the floor the more likely they will get expanded roles. If it wasn't for all the point guard injuries we've had I know Burks would still be getting dnp's like he did earlier in the season and now Corbin has been forced to see he has real talent. It seems Corbin can't see the vision unless he's forced into it.

    @ Millsap fan
    You're right about that aspect of Marvin Williams. I've heard he is one of the nicest players in the league and will usually even say yes sir and no sir to sports reporters durning interviews.I know I'm always hard on him in my comments but I really respect him as a person

    Americanvet is right about Marvin Williams. I feel bad for him because he seems like a great person off the court, but he is just not cutting it. And the excuse of not running plays for him is not legitimate because Carrol is an instant game changer at that position (no plays are ran for him) and Hayward is the same way. We have no need for him on this young team.

    So the Jazz have struggled basically all year long in first and third quarters, which is when the starters get the bulk of their minutes. The Jazz won by 30 last night because of stellar DEFENSE and running the ball up the court. I'm so optimistic about our 6 core players!(Kanter, Favors, Foye, Carrol, Hayward, Burks)

    Great game and fun to watch as the youth seem interested in defense. The Bobcats had a hard time getting any easy shots because the Jazz were blocking, stealing and deflecting the ball all night. The one negative was all the unforced turnovers that would have killed us against a good team. However, it's not unexpected to see a lot of turnovers because the core 4 don't play enough together coach, especially Kanter.

    For all you Marvin defenders with your "the Jazz don't run any plays for him" excuse, how do you explain last night's game. The highest scoring players are injured and we have a starting point guard that does not score so you would think Marvin would try to carry the load a little. On this night he scores one stinking point. Meanwhile Carroll gets 19 and even Evans gets 14 points playing the same position. Memo to Marvin, try hustling a little and see if it works for you like it does for the other small forwards on the team. Memo to Corbin, don't credit yourself with that win. You were finally forced to do what everyone has been begging you to do all along.

    I'm still trying to figure out Coach Corbin's strategy is in the way he's playing Hayward. He needs to start and get breaks in between his minutes instead of coming off the bench and playing 13-15 straight minutes in each half. He clearly lost his legs and his shot towards the end the other night in the over-time loss.

    Amazing what a little spunk and defense can do. Starters watching?

    As Clint Eastwood stated in "Heartbreak Ridge", what we have is a dilemma. Favors has been playing great and now Kanter has a monstrous game albeit against a weak team. The "kiddie corps" also came off the bench. Carroll from Mizzou performed with an injury. It would appear that AJ and MSap are expendanble with their 15 mill and 8 mill wanting 15 salaries. With the Lakers making their charge and the Rockets playing well, there is a good chance that the Jazz fall out of the playoff picture. As Shakespeare said in one of his plays, "do it and do it quickly".

    Maybe the coach noticed. What do you think? Do you think he can remember to do it again? Lol
