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.
