    Kakashi, you're a long way from St George, and not the particular "usual's" I was referring to. As I've said many times I'm not a Corbin fan, but I think he is doing as well as anyone could, with maybe the exception of George Karl. I'm also sure that Corbin's allocation of minutes and who he sticks on the court is strictly governed by ownership and money futures. My prediction is the Jazz will move Hayward in a bold attempt to draft deep into this years pool and continue the youth movement. Hayward failed to sign which indicates to me he wants too much and too long of a contract. He is a very dynamic player regardless of his shooting. Marvin and Jefferson will be great chips in a sign and trade, possibly getting better replacements or more picks. I think Kanter and Favors have great futures here, but I think Trey bolts too, leaving the Jazz with Neto which I think will be the next Steve Nash. I think Neto is that good! Ian Clark is a bit of a stash too, I think he makes an impact at some point.

    the reason why i dont like corbin as a coach..is because we could've signed better...like the ones that i keep mentioning...Nate Mcmillan...Lionel Hollins...its not because of the "reason" you are trying to propose...and im really not a fan of marvin williams and richard jefferson...when you are on track to have a chance at Jabari Parker...Joel Embiid or Julius Randle...if they keep marvin williams...i'd rather see him come off the bench...

    You said it all in your first few sentences. And Wilt was the greatest. You can see some video of him on U-Tube. I think his college high jump record was 6'9".

    I've always felt Hayward had the ability to be a Ginobli type player for the Jazz, and even put up better numbers. My feeling however, is that he will reach his peak in a Celtics uniform and not a Jazz uni unfortunately. I selfishly hoped he wouldn't shine in the final year of his contract which may have lowered the interest he will get from other teams next year and give the Jazz a better chance to resign him at a more reasonable price. Oh well, looks like that probably won't happen.

    Congratulations to Hayward for a great game. Being from the Midwest, I am interested in the progress of Brandon Rush. He came from Kansas and had great potential until he injured his knee. He was one of those who came from the Warriors on a salary cap deal. He will probably be cut loose at the end of the year.

    Hard to complain about Corbin if he gets these kids to perform. Well it's not that hard for several of the "normals" on this blog. I don't think it's his coaching they hate, it's a bit more sinister. Also it's still very difficult for some to understand the importance of expiring contract players like Jefferson and Williams. They don't like them even if they play well, I'm sure it's for the same reason as Corbin. I think the perfect lineup for them would be; Jimmer, Reddick, Hayward, Kevin Love, and Steve Blake. With Jeff Hornacek coaching. This lineup would give Hayward plenty of traveling buddies, (right my little St George Bloggers) I think the most accurate writer on these post is Joe5, he has great perspective. AmericanVet also chimes in with educated stuff. But Joe, you are the man. Wilt was the best. I watched the Lakers live in LA with West, Wilt, Baylor, Goodrich, etc. I think one of the best teams in History.
