To all the people here...who think Paul Millsap and Al Jefferson will take this
team to the playoffs on the loaded West Conference with Ty Corbin as
coach...well guess what...they had the chance for 1 year...and they
failed...what does Big Al, Deron Williams, Carlos Boozer, Kyle Korver, Demarre
Carrol and Paul Millsap have in common? all of them plays on the east...we did
really good when we had Deron Boozer, AK and Memo...when boozer left we were on
track for playoffs...till they traded Deron for Favors and Kanter...and
rebuilding started...they hesitated at first...wanting continuity...they signed
a few players and didnt really commit to going young...not till this
season...you guys know that...Rome wasnt built in a day...it will be a while
before we get back...so relax...and enjoy the show
Ty's most critical job this season was to develop the Jazz's younger
talent, not win games.In that he failed miserably.Time
to move on to a coach who understands the bigger picture.
Everyone seems anxious to replace Ty, but with who? I suspect that those who
would apply for the job are going to be unproven coaches. If someone has a track
record of winning, they are going to be snapped up by a big market team. Change
for the sake of change does not work out well very often I've found.
Is there a proven coach out there available and willing to take on a young Jazz
team right now? Yes, of course there's Mike Woodson, who as of today
became available, but seriously. I just don't see anyone out there that
could do a better job than Corbin given the roster as it is.
Corbin won't be fired. His contract is up. The choice is to re-hire, or
go a different direction.With that said, I believe we need to go a
different direction. He is reactionary to how he sets his starting line-up.
When the Jazz played Memphis, he went with Kanter/Favors starting to combat
Gasol/Randolph. The Jazz should make people adjust to them in the future.
Start Favors/Kanter, and make smaller teams adjust to the Jazz. Do what makes
your team best, and make others adjust to you. If Favors and Marvin Williams
was the best combo, go with that and take advantage of your own line-up. That
would make Gasol or Randolph guard out of position. This is why I believe
Corbin should not be re-hired.
Lindsay said it was not about winning this year. Management thought the team
would win about 25 games. It was about the 3Ds. Corbin said he was
put in a bad situation in his last year of contract. He put lot of blame on
the young players. I got tired of all the young players and veteran comments
from him instead of just talking about players. Like being young was some how
bad. Instead of being excited about having talented young players to teach the
game to. I think players pick up on that. I still remember Favors
having a monster game last year and having to sit the whole 4th quarter. How
much of the game is a bout having confidence. The players and the coach. We see coaches that get the best out of players and teams but I
don't feel Ty does. I don't feel he met the 3Ds all that well. I hope they get a coach that is excited about the opportunity to coach
Why is the fact that he didn't play your young five together during the
year outlined here. I believe he had them together less than 200 minutes this
last year. That was simply bad coaching.
One of the reasons that the Jazz have had such a consistently winning record
over the years, despite the small market, is that they have stuck with their
head coaches. It leads to stability and allows coaches to develop a system. I
believe Tyrone Corbin deserves more time.
With Milsap making his first All-Star team (and in the playoffs), with Al
Jeffersen averaging 22.0 ppg (and in the playoffs), with Kyle Korver leading the
league in 3 point FG% (and in the playoffs), and Carlos Boozer averaging double
doubles (and in the playoffs), and Demaree Carroll starting (and in the
playoffs) and Darron Williams starting (and in the playoffs) and Wes Mathews
starting (and in the playoffs)....Forget Tyrone Corbin! Fire management and
realize that when it comes to intelligence and grit, the apple apparently falls
farther from the tree than we realize. Greg Miller can't cut the mustard.
Coaches who don't win get fired.
I have not been impressed with Corbin or the Jazz under his leadership- when a
"star" player loafs on defense, sit him down. Send a message. This
team should have been good defenders with their youth and athleticism, but they
were not even close... even the Bulls with mostly old Jazz "bad"
defenders were far better.
Ty Corbin will most likely be released, but he won't sit around very long.
He'll get offered an assistants job somewhere which he is more suited to do
at this point anyway. One the other hand, the Jazz do need a coach who they can
plug in and move this rebuilding team forward. I doubt that it would be a George
Carl though. He's not much of a "developer" type of coach, but he
may also see the potential in the core group of young guns. (Also, there is a
guy out there with the name of Nate McMillan...just saying.)However,
EPointForeign players? Yeah, we want 5 defenders on the court that
defend like foreigner Enes Kanter.
For years the problems with Utah's defense was blamed on Big Al, since the
center position anchors the defense.Big Al goes to Charlotte, and
their defense goes from 30th best to 6th best.Maybe it's time
to blame the coach instead of the players.DONT KEEP.
Corbin is a good guy but I don't think he is equipped to handle the giant
egos of superstar athletes. Jazz need to bring in one of the Van Gundy's or
maybe Steve Kerr. Also, isnt it interesting to watch all the former Jazz players
doing so well in the playoffs?
Letting DeMarre Carroll leave, to me, was a big blow to the Jazz defense. Any
rebuilding plan, no matter what it is, could and should include a player like
Carroll. How hard or expensive would it have been to keep him? I all but
turned in my Jazz fan card when he was allowed to leave and because of this I
didn't attend a single game and watched very few on TV this season. It had
nothing to do with the Jazz being bad since I was there the first day the Jazz
came here. I was just so ticked off.
I think Corbin is a good person and wants to do a good job; however, I
don't think he should be retained as head coach. I dream of having
co/coaches of Stockton and Malone. They earned a co/MVP, why not co/coach? I
think this seasons team could have made the play-off's with the right
coach. Hornacek would have made the play-off's with this team. I think it
is time to say good bye and thank you to Corbin.
After Lindsay and Corbin meet tomorrow. I am confident an exciting new era will
begin for the Utah Jazz. I am excited to see who Dennis brings in as
Corbin's replacement. I get the feeling Dennis knows what he's doing
and will bring in the right coach for the job. It's been 3 1/2 long years
and I am certainly ready for this team to get back on track. Go Jazz!
Sell the Jazz to better management and move the Jazz to Las Vegas, NV. The
current management is mismanaging and not providing the resources to get the job
The problem is ownership and management, not coaching. John Wooden couldn't
make a winner out of the money the Millers are willing to spend.
I hate this part. If he goes, I hope he is offered a terrific opportunity
elsewhere. If he stays, I hope fans will give him another chance to succeed.
This is tough for him and his staff to figure out their futures. I would be so
stressed. I guess the solution is to just get on with it.
What this article fails to mention however is Corbin's inability to build a
playoff team with greater potential. Before the Jazz went young Corbin had
better talent and failed to deliver in those seasons as well. He fails to get
the best of his players and they often look confused on both sides of the floor.
Jazz have a long way to go but development was not as significant as it maybe
should have been. Good luck to Corbin and he is a great guy but was out coached
by coaches with lesser teams this year.
Always liked Tyrone Corbin, don't have a sense that he is an amazing head
Coach, however. In the NBA, defense is what brings championships. In his
defense, Ty hasn't had any tough minded players of star quality, the
Stockton type of consistency, toughness, determination. Foreign players may be
the way to go, like Spurs have gone, to get away from lackadaisical play we have
witnessed. Who should be the new Coach? I don't know, how about Randy
Rahe of Weber State...that's where Dick Motta and Phil Johnson came from.
I like Ty Corbin. But, I think it is time to part ways with him as the coach of
the Utah Jazz. Bring in some new life, someone with a huge vision of what the
Jazz can become, and bring in someone who will work the Jazz hard and take them
back to the glory days of NBA finals and beyond.
