    So Corbin is supposed to play the youngsters, but also supposed to win every game with those same young inexperienced players? If only it were that easy Phil Jackson would be already knocking on the Miller's door!
    I really don't understand why all the hate is pointed at Corbin. Do you honestly think he's the most powerful person in the whole Jazz organization? If the remit was to blood the youngsters no matter how little wins we get this season, then how come he hasn't been fired yet? All the blind hate towards Corbin makes your criticism sound silly and childish. Wouldn't it be more productive if you turn your ire towards those in the organization who actually have the final say about things?

    In my mind he should be playing more at the expense of Jefferson like some have said. he might even should be playing more at the expense of Hayward if he keeps it up. In many ways he's playing much like Hayward should be playing but is not. It's been kind of telling to me.

    So when is Portland coming to take him away from the Jazz? Way to go Jazz, let's keep up the spirit of giving. Or are we the DL for the Blazers? LOL!

    @ Little Andy.....My sentiments exactly....This constant juggling of the lineups, and the multitudinous different groups Corbin is putting on the floor are not within the parmeters of the grand plan Lindsey has for building this team into a contender.....What Corbin is supposed to be doing is playing the young core together so they can become used to each other, a la Ginobili, Parker, and Duncan.....Jefferson and Williams are not part of the young core...Kanter, Gobert, Burks, Evans, and Clark are part of the young core who will be around for years if they have the ability....Clark and Gobert in particular are bing robbed of opportunity by a coach who is concerned about his won/lost record...A coach who is playing Jefferson and Williams, followed by D-League players, in his efforts to win games.

    Probablility is that Hayward will have to make the greatest adjustments, because the probability is that he'll wind up playing the 3...Wish we'd get a decent coach so we'd be able to get a peek at the future.

    Funny how a young player can come around when he actually gets some playing time. Maybe in 3 years Corbin will decide to play Gobert and make another startling discovery. Can't wait to get Wiggins or Parker and watch them ride the pine.

    I have been saying for months now let him play consistant minutes and he will be fine. And why save him for the bench?? Bench Jefferson and let Hayward play the three and Burks the two. Watch it work..

    Keep it going, Alec. Good to see you improve as an all-around player. With Raul Neto probably coming next year to back up Trey and Alec and Gordon at shooting guard, the Jazz are developing one of the best backcourts in the NBA. Having two guys in Alec and Gordon who can play two positions will really help at times, too. Kudos to those few posters here who have supported Alec throughout his transition from college to today.
