Truthfully, I hope the Jazz don't make the playoffs. Jazz
management and ownership need a wakeup call.Stop aiming at
mediocrity. The 8th spot is the middle of the NBA. 16th of 32. Whoopie!!!!Don't be afraid to lose a few while developing the young guys,
instead of playing EIGHT free agents. Whose team are you trying to develop?
Start playing the young guys. You don't learn about winning by WATCHING,
you learn by playing. You can't learn how to close out games sitting on
the BENCH. The Warriors weren't afraid to lose last year, and
they've passed the Jazz by -- in part by stealing what should've been
the Jazz' draft choice by choosing to lose.The Jazz want their
young players to learn that "winning is important?" Winning WHAT?
Games, or CHAMPIONSHIPS? The Spurs know the difference, which is why
they've been OK losing a few games now and then while resting their stars
on the way to CHAMPIONSHIPS. (Starting in 1999, when Sloan rode his team into
the ground.)Does no one in coaching or management or ownership have
any brains anymore? Did it all leave with Larry? (Rhetorical questions, btw.)
What momentum? They have won one game after losing four straight! Need new coach
along with players that will play hard enough to earn their wages
Momentum? Momentum for the lottery maybe. This squad of free agents and their
coach who wasted a whole season on them need to go. We need to build around the
C4 for with fresh players and a legit NBA coach who puts winning above pleasing
Beating a bottom dweller at home hardly momentum makes...
If beating a horrendous Philly team at home translates as momentum, I guess the
Jazz have some.
Strange situation with 10 free agents. The Lakers are in "free fall" and
the Mavs have too tough a schedule. It looks like the Jazz will make it. Once
there, it will be the Spurs. Even with a greater effort, the scores will be
closer but the result will be the same. I don't think that Corbin is the
answer. The team has really good players and the only ones who are giving a
nightly effort are Favors, Kanter, Hayward. It's all about money and if
they can afford to pay Big Al 20 mill for next season. Like, no!
