This is one of very few games that I didn't have a chance to watch. It
sounds like I didn't miss much. The one thing that kind of blows my mind
is we have a game where it sounds like we were out of by half time, both teams
starters are on the bench the whole 4th quarter, and Travis Leslie doesn't
even get into the game. Come on coach, the kid's on a 10 day contract just
itching to play for his mom, and you can't give him a few minutes.
It's not like it could have worsened the outcome of the game.
I'll take our bench anyday over Corbins starters. I really hope that this
is the last year we have to put up with this kind of coaching.
It's mighty hard to make a case for Corbin keeping his job. He hasn't
had much of an effect on this team other than keeping the next generation on the
bench while player the old timers. If the goal is to finish .500 and gaining the
7th or 8th playoff spot to then get run in 4 games, the management can claim
success, or almost success this season. I'm not quite sure what draws the
fans to witness the uninspired play other than knowing that like Sacramento, the
city is just a moving van away from being a "minor" city, and any game
is better than none. Since Larry's death, the team has lost its luster,
from the unproductive high draft choices to picking up what other teams had no
use for, the Jazz has become irrelevant.
Did your team grow with this loss Corbin? By being completely out of the game by
halftime I was able to watch Duck Dynasty which was a lot more entertainment
then watching the Jazz go through the motions!
Per AP Report "For the past month, every time the Utah Jazz have taken the
court, they've been fighting for their playoff lives. They have no room for
error. The Jazz failed to show that urgency when they took the court Wednesday.
Utah played as if the season were over..." Can't help but think
it's the Coaches responsibility to prepare their team to play. This outcome
has happened all too often under Corbin's watch, especially on the road.
Where's the accountability?
If Kobe's injury is as bad as it looked you guys are still going to get in.
There is no point in making the playoffs. Stop playing the veterans, let them
all leave as they will in free agency. Play the young guns that we will have for
a few years. Lose every game from here on out so draft spot is better. Sign a
few young guys in free agency and stick with a young team that can be the
future. This piecing together of random veterans is not going to work right now.
Let it end. Please let the insanity end.
Ok, so I really do believe that the Jazz are just playing for a lottery pick
now. The starters did not even try to compete. If corbin wanted to win he would
have put someone in that new how to run an offense. I don't think MO
williams is all that either. He had 3 assists. wow.
It's the system guys! I've been saying now for years that the Jazz
failed to adapt to the new NBA. This offense, and defense for that matter are
all geared for man on man coverage. It involves a low post scorer like Dantley,
Malone, Boozer, and now AJ. It requires a good passing big man, and a hard nosed
point guard. Sloan had Stockton, enough said! Jeff was a great two guard because
Malone was a great passer out of the post. When the NBA went away from man on
man defense, the league moved more towards a guard talent, and more mobile big
men that could run the floor. Gone are the days of the big slow centers. Jerry
couldn't adapt, thus Corbin is a product of Jerry ball.Besides
the fact that Jefferson kills the Jazz, we all need to look at the system that
kills the guards. Carroll is stuck in that lineup with Jefferson and Foye, he
too now struggles, just like Williams and Hayward do in the starting lineup.
Maybe getting rid of Corbin, will finally get rid of the Jerry/Layden system.
Like I said earlier... if you always do what you've always done,
you'll always get what you've always gotten. And so it continues.The coach seems incapable of making any meaningful in-game changes. Afterward,
it's always the same, "We'll just learn from this and move
on."My question to the coach is, "What are you moving on
to?"Croton at BYU was a much better assistant coach than he was head
coach. Time proved that to be the case. It seems the same will be true of
Only Jimmer can fix this mess.
We have the talent on the team...we just don't have a coach that gets it
out of them... Corbin is a good guy, but how long will the Jazz be in this free
fall before a coaching change is made?
The Jazz have at least 10 more wins without Corbin as the coach. He just
isn't ready to be a coach on the NBA level. He was a better player than he
will ever be as a head coach.
Losers of 8 of 10. They get their starters back and there is no
improvement whatsoever. That is why we never gave it a second thought when Mo
Williams was out...because he makes no difference anyways. Mo takes at least 5
bad shots a game and that is minimum.He dribbles endlessly looking
for his own shot. He has little playmaking ability. Unfortunately behind him
we have Watson and Tinsley who are better passers but can't shoot to save
their souls.Millsap and Jefferson as go-to guys will never take this
team anywhere. How much more clear can it be.Every word you hear
from Corbin is incredibly defensive because he can't handle the scrutiny
and he is clearly insecure about what he is doing or he wouldn't be so
defensive.His team looks like a disorganized mess. All he can
parrot is "I believe in these guys" and all that is his attempt at self
preservation because he knows if he loses the players ownership will be forced
to boot him.Millsap is a role player. Jefferson is an offense
killer whenever he touches the ball. No doubt he can score but results speak
Hard to understand how 23% shooting in the first half is Corbin's fault.
Can no blame be given to the players? Also, no matter how much we whine about
Corbin, I don't see the Jazz management letting him go until his contract
is up. Loyalty is valued highly in the Jazz organization. Corbin was loyal to
the team as an assistant even when he was offered other head coaching jobs. You
can call it a strength or a weakness, but that doesn't change how it is.
The Lakers said that Mike Brown's job was safe. Three days later, he was
fired. I prefer loyalty over that kind of behavior.
@DustinIt is the Coach's problem...yes...he cant be the one
going in..and saving the day...but..he has other guys on the bench...waiting for
the oppotunity...Corbin...let's his vets shoot their way out of a
slump...but he rarely does that for a young guy...and that's pretty much
absurd...he isnt consistent on his coaching...and he is extremely poor at player
rotations and in the X's and O's...@fortydami agree
with you 100% that the system is at flaw...the difference between Jerry and
Corbin...is that if we have Jerry right now...we would be sitting comfortably at
the 7th seed...because Jerry is a smart enough man...to make in game
adjustments...like Phil Jackson said...it's all about the system...my honest opinion on things is...We should let Big Al and Paul Millsap
go and get a new coach...and that is a must...it is a pain to look at all the
potential the young 4 has...and yet they are benched and the funny part
is...they are the ones responsible for cleaning up the starters mess...
