    i think rick adelman is out of the wolves...now...Management should take him...and make him part of the selection process for free agency and drafting...i think with Rick Adelman...we would get one of the most underrated coaches in the league...and his system works...

    I sat behind the jazz bench a couple of games ago,and realized that the players have absolutely NO repsect for Corbin...The only way we will become an elite team is to get a coach that has the respect of each of the players...We need Sloan back...I would take him back any day!! He got the most of his players and if he didn't they sat the pine!!

    Uh, big Al, we only wished you had treated EVERY game as if it "mattered." Then we wouldn't be in the mess we are in now.

    This is Ty Corbins 3rd season.

    The first season was a partial when Greg Miller backed Deron instead of Jerry and Jerry bailed.

    The second season was shortened with the lockout.

    This season was a full season and every radio/tv personality said at the beginning of the season said something to the effect of "the players are a year older/more experienced and Ty will have a full camp and season to demonstrate progress and this will be a good season to evaluate Corbins results".

    Well. We added Mo Williams and Randy Foye (a huge upgrade) and our young guys are a year more experienced/better.

    The results?

    Ty Corbin will miss the playoffs and we get a worthless midteens lottery pick. All the uneducated fans who have been whining for a lottery pick win. Most mid-teen lottery picks yield rotational players at best and often less.

    Of course there are the few exceptions but the reality is what you get there is a Ronnie Brewer.

    Playoff experience is what this team needs. That and getting rid of Al Jefferson the champion offense-slower, ball-stopper, defenseless, offensive blackhole.

    Playoff success comes after playoff failure/experience.

    We shall see what the motivation is for the Rockets. The Spurs danced like they were at an "ice cream social". Whenever the game got close, they just went and asked for more ice cream. For whatever reason, the motivation was just not there. Actually, I don't think that the game matters to the Rockets either. AJ is really playing well. The Jazz have ten expiring contracts and what will happen. The best bet is to cut the salary cap, sorry AJ and MSap, and go for a good point guard and start praying that they can work out something with Favors before his contract expires in two years. The NBA merry-go-round is quite a dizzy life for the owners. The fans are just a victim of circumstances and the Jazz have some of the most loyal. However, attendance of 18.2K in a 19.9K facility should be a "word of warning".

    The article is a little behind.

    The Jazz have two games left; the Lakers only have one. They beat San Antonio last night without Kobe.

    The Jazz will have to win both games and the Lakers lose their last one.

    It may be too little too late. The Jazz' chances look very bleak right now. They lost too many must-win games all season.

    Oh well, we wish them luck! They are fun to watch.

    Big Al isn't the only one that needs to step up if the Jazz are to win . . .
