    Coach you say? how about we pry Brian Scalabrine out of Golden State...a lot of good coaches seem to have a high regard of him when it comes to coaching...plus...he's the white mamba....

    It's actually Karl Malone who should be getting some credit for the advancement of these 2 guys. He was hired and brought in specifically to work with the big guys, who previously gave credit to Malone for helping them.

    Some of us had been advocating all season long to play Favors and Kanter more together. Once it finally happened on a regular basis, good things started happening. It takes at least 2 quality big guys in the front court to be competitive at a high level.

    Now if we could just find a coach to help bring the rest of the team up to the next level, and with some consistency. Unfortunately, the Jazz missed the boat big-time regarding Jeff Hornacek. Hopefully, it was a lesson learned that too much loyalty to their head coach isn't always a good thing. With Sloan, it was. But he was an aboration, an exception that doesn't happen often.

    Just as teams keep changing players to find the right mix, they sometimes need to do the same regarding their coaches. Now it's time for the Jazz move on in their ongoing quest for excellence.

    Nice to read these endorsements on our bigs. I hope that Coach Corbin gets some credit for their development. I'm excited (and a bit nervous) over who is still with the Jazz for the next season. It's going to be so much better and will continue to move in the right direction...fer shure!

    Go Jazzboys tonight!!!
