They've quietly established themselves as contenders? How are they
contenders? The 1-3 record? They haven't established anything.
yup...too much depth is a problem...it does not help improve the youngsters who
will eventually lead the team...or leave and get their careers back on track..im
still a loyal fan...but a championship...is a pipe dream
"They've quietly established themselves as contenders" That
statement is in complete contradiction with the rest of the article. I think
some delusional super fan edited your piece before it went into print.
Too much depth?Demarre CarrolJeremy EvansEarl Watson
(injured I know)Kevin MurphyJamaal TinsleyThose are 5
players that don't make much of a difference on a roster. I like Carrol
and I think he is the best of that group, but too much depth? Then Jefferson
stalls an offense. Favors and Kanter are still proving themselves and we
don't know how Burks will turn out. Let's just say the
Jazz have about 8-9 players that are nice players, but to say this team is too
deep is delusional.
If Jazz fans were asked whether they would rather see Corbin play the veterans
and probably win a few more games at the expense of developing the young guns,
or, play our young guys and not win as many games, I would bet a strong majority
would say put the team on the young kids backs and let them play. Kanter showed
how much he had developed in the pre-season when he averaged more minutes than
Jefferson but now he seems to be playing without the same aggression because he
is afraid to make mistakes and get pulled out of the game. Let him play coach!!
Favors seems to be picking it up after a slow pre-season. Let him play coach!!
Hayward is getting minutes and producing. Keep playing him coach!! Burks showed
so much aggression in the pre-season and while he is a little mistake prone he
has so much potential. Let him play coach!! If giving these guys more minutes
results in a few less wins that's ok I really believe for most of Jazz
nation. Coach, step up and make the decision to turn this team over to the kids.
Make the floor twice as big with 2 baskets on both ends of the floor and let 10
guys from each team play simultaneously...that way everyone gets to play...
Too much depth? More fantasy talk.Teams with theoretical too much
depth win games. The Jazz have Millsap who is too short and they have Al
Jefferson the defensive doormat.Alternative to that they have Favors
who shows freakish flashes and consistent inconsistency combined with Kanter who
is the preseason world champion of beating up on 2nd rate scrubs.This team is stuck in limbo because the duo up front is taking this team
nowhere that matters so at least one has to go but when that happens you will
suffer for a while because there is nobody consistent enough to take their
place.Pick your poison.Too much depth? Pfffft!Too much kool-aid? Sounds like it to me.
