    Whoever put this team together should be fired! We used to drive to slc to shop, spend money and watch the jazz. Not this year, not for this team, sorry merchants, sorry hotel and theatre owners. You can all thank Lindsey for this!

    "Franchise's front office sends a message to fans: Stand by me."

    Translation: Please continue to buy badly overpriced tickets and ugly jerseys featuring the names of players who would do anything to play anywhere else so that the Millers can continue to not invest in the team and instead spend your hard-earned money on crab legs for their luxury box.

    Stand by me?

    Easier said than done.

    Lots of people asked for the youth movement not fully understanding how bad it would be. They didn't understand that the reason Hayward could shoot 40% from 3 point range was because Millsap and Jefferson drew all the attention down low and Foye got the rest on the other wing.

    That being said lets analyze what else has happened. Favors and Kanter now suddenly have to carry bigger minutes and are too tired (or busy trying to not get in foul trouble) to properly defend the high pick and roll. As a result offenses are feasting on it. It collapses our defense to cover it and the perimeter is left open to rain down threes which teams are happy to do nowadays.

    Favors got 8 rebounds last night. He was averaging that last season with 10-12 less minutes. Kanter seems incapable of a defensive rebound but only decides to be top 5 NBA in offensive rebounding. What?

    Many of the fundamentals are not being enforced by Corbin. Players continue to get minutes despite not bothering with fundamentals and bad defensive lapses.

    Defensive team? This team is horrible defensively.

    These players have talent. The coach? Not so much.

    As long as Corbin sings out to Lucas "sit by me" Jazz will be much better. Like most fans I would rather see the kids getting more playing time and developing than the older vets playing. Even if they lose the game. That decision is in Corbins hands..
