"Official attendance at Monday’s game was 17,139."That's the number of tickets sold, but not the number of people actually
in attendance. Clearly, there were several thousand "no shows."
It's sad to see so many empty seats in the arena.
I think it's all about Burke realizing that in the NBA, he's not the
"stud" he was in college. Two things are apparent....He's a tad
short, and though he's quick when he's on the move, he isn't
quick enough to react to the superb point guards in the NBA. This causes his
defense to suffer...He might work out to be a good one, but the first thing he
needs is a coach to put him in a scheme where he can use his skills and develop
new ones....He hasn't got this in Corbin.As for Hayward....He's
under too much pressure attempting to make an offense go when there's no
pattern to work with.....He's a team player and doesn't function well
in Corbin's "playground" offense where everybody goes one on one
and forgets about playing defense.
Funny how Hayward gets a pass from all of the Jazz critics. He gets more looks
at the hoop than anyone would have got from Sloan, continues to throw up bricks
and it's Corbins fault. I think Hayward brings more to the game than
shooting, so I think he deserves to start. Blaming Corbins "playground
basketball" on his struggles is absolutely hilarious. Wide open bricks,
dribbling the ball off of your leg, and throwing lazy passes is not a coaching
problem. Hayward seems more worried about his up and coming televised marriage
and landing a Celtics contract, than he does his current skill level. I agree
that Burke's is finding the NBA a little more challenging than college. Ask
Hayward doesn't get a pass from me. He does some good things, but shot is
inconsistant and way too turnover prone. If Jazz give him more than 10
mil/year, they are fools. He's a number two and maybe even number three on
a good team. The Celtics want him. Trade him for a lesser player and the
higher of their two first round draft picks. I'm not giving up on Trey
Burke, but if the best player available on draft day is a point guard (say Exum
or Smart), they should take him.
anyone here wanted to trade Hayward?...i have a feeling that its ok for the fans
if Hayward is traded for some solid assets...if he is to be traded...to where
and what do you want to get for him in return?....
