    Way too early to make claims that the Millers made the "correct" choice. However I am happy that they made a choice, and Snyder appears to be a decent choice. Will he succeed? Remains to be seen. I hope he is successful, but I also hope that the Millers didn't just "settle" for a name and a prospect.

    Much to like about this coach. He has been to the top (fame/money), then the bottom (out of basketball), then started over and climbed the mountain again, which is humbling. He has head coaching experience, his former players (college and pro) seem to be very loyal to him, which I think is a good sign. He is very bright. He wants to coach in Utah and he is aligned with Dennis Lindsay and the "Spurs Way" which has seemed to work well for the Spurs. Lindsey has a big plan, it does take time, but there is A PLAN, which includes certain types of coaches, players, and an emphasis on TEAM, and DEFENSE. Lets see if they can steal someone in the draft like they did last year with Trey! Developing a young team in a small market takes some risk and patience.

    I agree full-heartedly with this choice. The Millers did the prerequisite homework and made the correct choice. I'm genuinely excited about the future of Jazz basketball.
