Good for Johnnie - I wish he could take some time to go help out the Utes as
well. They could use some help on offense.Seriously though, Bryant
has a great basketball mind and I'm sure he will make a great head coach
some day. Having this position with the Jazz will be huge for him down the
Awesome story! Good luck Johnnie with the Jazz, NBA and life. I don't know
you but you sound like a hard working intelligent man. God Speed!Go
I was liking this story oh so well until they said he helped Ronnie Price...NBA
have Ronnie Price (very nice guy but ) rated as 3rd lowest output in NBA.Glad to hear he beat Hornacek. Hornacek ranks right up
there with other great players such as Isaiah Thomas, Michael Jordan who have
made a name for themselves as great players and totally worthless coaches.Jordan as a coach was truly awful.Hornacek as a coach had
the Jazz shooting at a notable abysmal pct from 3 point land last year, as in
29th out of the 30 teams in NBA.
@Doug10Man, a lot of it is about players. The Jazz are shooting .373 from
3pt land and tied for the 7th best 3pt percentage in the NBA this season. The
fact is last season the Jazz had no good 3pt shooters. If you look at this
season the best 3pt shooters for the Jazz are Foye(new) Millsap(attempts .07
3's a game) Mo Williams(new), Hayward, and Marvin Williams. Pretty much the
only Jazz player who attempts at least one 3 a game and is in the top 5 on the
team is Hayward. The rest of the guys just aren't good, and a coach
can't take a terrible 3pt shooter and turn him into JJ Reddick.
I visited with Johnnie Bryant a number of years ago when he was at Utah and
later when he worked at the old Sky Box. I was impressed very much with his
energy and personality. He played the mini ball shootout with me and I
don't think he missed a shot.
@ Doug10 It must be so cold in Roosevelt that the brain gets frozen.
I didn't know that there was a Michael Jordan that coached in The League.
If you were talking about the "Greatest" player ever to lace up a a pair
of sneakers, you might want to check your source. Who cares what kind of an
owner he is.. He was still the most enjoyable athlete ever to watch on t.v., and
especially in person.
