Nice to read these endorsements on our bigs. I hope that Coach Corbin gets some
credit for their development. I'm excited (and a bit nervous) over who is
still with the Jazz for the next season. It's going to be so much better
and will continue to move in the right direction...fer shure!Go
It's actually Karl Malone who should be getting some credit for the
advancement of these 2 guys. He was hired and brought in specifically to work
with the big guys, who previously gave credit to Malone for helping them.Some of us had been advocating all season long to play Favors and Kanter
more together. Once it finally happened on a regular basis, good things started
happening. It takes at least 2 quality big guys in the front court to be
competitive at a high level. Now if we could just find a coach to
help bring the rest of the team up to the next level, and with some consistency.
Unfortunately, the Jazz missed the boat big-time regarding Jeff Hornacek.
Hopefully, it was a lesson learned that too much loyalty to their head coach
isn't always a good thing. With Sloan, it was. But he was an aboration, an
exception that doesn't happen often. Just as teams keep
changing players to find the right mix, they sometimes need to do the same
regarding their coaches. Now it's time for the Jazz move on in their
ongoing quest for excellence.
@LoconicCoach you say? how about we pry Brian Scalabrine out of
Golden State...a lot of good coaches seem to have a high regard of him when it
comes to coaching...plus...he's the white mamba....
