    i dont really see any improvement from corbin...still the same...we have new blood...its time we get a new system...that would play to our strengths...i love what coach sloan did...and he took us to the dance twice....but today's game is a different ball game...and we need a better coach than Corbin....with his adopted system...instead of being a real coach and implement his own...

    The best way to keep winning is to keep Lucas fanny on the end of the bench..

    I agree that Corbin is developing into a better head coach. My issue is that if we want to maximize the youth potential, wouldn't it be better to have an experienced head coach develop them? It seems like we are wasting precious time trying to develop a head coach AND young players. Once they are both developed all of our young players will then be leaving for bigger markets, but we will still have our coach...

    It's not like the Suns are all that loaded with talent. Bledsoe is pretty good with Dragic and Markieff not being too bad but do you expect the Suns to contend?

    I am very troubled by the way coach Hornacek uses Plumlee in the last quarter of games. He is the lone enforcer,shot blocker, and rebounder yet he is not in at the close of games.The opponent gets easy baskets, and extra shots because Plumlee is not in.He is also our only low post threat.I feel his misuse has cost the Suns at least two games thus far.Hornaceks intent of using Frye and a smaller team will end up as the Suns demise.

    It's lucky someone is instilling confidence in Burke, but one thing is becoming apparent, Corbin has killed Enos Kanter's confidence. He is not playing as well as he was playing at the start of last season, he's regressing. It looks more and more like Gobert and Clark will never see the floor again in this the year of the youth movement. Corbin has got to go before he ruins anyone else.

    Corbin had a few seasons where he lived off the scraps Sloan had left on the table. Those guys are all gone now, and Corbin's inability to install offensive or defensive schemes, his inability to teach, his inability to motivate, and his complete lack of coaching acumen, are glaring at us as we watch the kids on the floor try to work things out by themselves

    Good to read. Hope he lives up to his and others expectations. Unless he is truly a super-star, I still doubt he can be the savior that people are trying to project him as. For one thing, he plays a tough position which needs lots of growing up and is in his 1st year. More importantly, the fundamental problems with the team has to be fixed and I still dont believe this coaching staff is capable of it. As I have said always, Corbin at best can get Jazz to the playoffs but not beyond the 1st round.
