The Utah Jazz lost several games at first because they were young and Trey
Burkes was injured along with several other veterans. Trey and the veterans
returned and the Jazz start winning 40 to 45 percent of their games. I was
thinking at the time that the Jazz would win 35 games this season, but when
March 1st came around they start losing again like they did at the beginning of
the season. There were some injuries but not as many. The key question is what
happened in March to cause the onslaught of loses to happen? Perhaps tiredness,
the rookie/young player wall, but I really believe they should of won more than
four games since March 1st. This is the question that management needs to focus
on to make sure it does not happen again as drastic as it did. Did the players
lose confidence in the coaching staff and vice versa, or was scheduling to
blame??? I hope the Jazz management can answer this question and come up with
solutions?I want to thank Corbin and the coaching staff for all your
hard work!! Enjoy your summer and relax and spend sometime with your families.
Corbin another chance? How green can the seats at ESA get? If Corbin is brought
back we will find out.
Facts speak for themselves. With the exception of the shortened walkout season,
the Jazz have gotten worse every year under Corbin. They couldn't even make
the playoffs last year with Jefferson and Millsap, who were supplemented by
multiple lottery pick caliber players.Corbin is a very nice person,
but falls short in what it takes to get the most from his players and to play
with consistency, which are vital characteristics of any successful coach and
organization.The Jazz decision makers made a huge mistake in letting
Jeff Hornacek go. After taking a young struggling team and turning them into a
competitive playoff team in a single season, he is now the probable NBA coach of
the year. And he was on the Jazz payroll just a year ago waiting for his chance.
It finally came in Phoenix instead of SLC.Too many fans have seen
enough after 3 seasons. Without a coaching change, there will no doubt be a
significant dropoff in season ticket sales
It would be rare if not almost unprecedented for a coach completing his contract
to retain his job with Corbin's 3 year losing NBA record. It's been
going in the wrong direction by getting worse each of the last 2 years and not
making the playoffs either year.The natives are restless and are
really advocating for a change at this point. Not taking advantage of Jeff
Hornacek when they had him in their hip pocket will probably haunt the Millers
for years... especially after he becomes the NBA Coach of the Year after the
playoffs. His jersey is hanging in arena rafters for heaven's sake.Too much loyalty can become detrimental. It certainly would in this case
if a coaching change isn't made soon. The handwriting is on the wall. And
it's very easy to read this time. Hopefully, the prudent thing for upper
management to do will happen this time.
If Corbin is brought back there will be a LOT of green seats the ESA. OK, this
tough season for fans is finally over. We all want the TOUGHNESS and WINNING
Jazz basketball back again. I'm tired of hearing the excuses made for
Corbin (tough circumstances, expiring free agents, etc), frankly, the Jazz were
SOFT and had NO DEFENSE over the past 4 years. On top of that, Corbin did a
mediocre job in the development process this year as well. I loved that Kanter
questioned why they didn't just go all young since this was a year for
development.IT'S TIME FOR A CHANGE. The Jazz Brass made a huge
blunder at the end of last season by not letting Corbin go and promoting
Hornacek. PLEASE do not make another major blunder this year by bringing Corbin
and Co. back. It's time to move on and get a solid coach that can develop
this young core. This team just needs that, this years draft, and some solid
FAs. This enduring season is finally over, it's time for WINNING Jazz
Did the Jazz front office expect a different result for this season? I said
from day one this season would be horrible as far as their record. To give Ty
an inexperienced team and expect anything different than they got is unfair. My
guess is they wanted to get rid of him all along. Give him a crappy team so
they have a good place in the loto and have a "reason" to fire the coach
at the same time. Watch, they'll hire their new coach, bring in their new
loto pick and then pickup some vet free agents to try to build the team back up.
Bring back Jerry!
Hornacek!I don't care what you have to do - just get him back
The Jazz are being dragged into the 21th century, kicking and screaming. This is
not your tradition-loving Jazz of old, this is NuJazz where they don't even
have the decency to inform their coach he's not wanted anymore, instead
choosing to advertise his position and see who might be interested. And what if
they don't get the applicants they hoped for? Would they go back to Corbin,
begging forgiveness? Hold your head up high, coach, you did the best you could
with what you were handed. Good luck at your next job and also good luck to the
Jazz, they're gonna need it.
The blame for this season lys mostly on management ! Especially Lindsey.
Comparing Ty and Jeff is apples and oranges. Jeff was given the opportunity to
grow into his job with the Suns expecting a terrible season. Ty was never given
that chance at all! Jazz fans should be grateful for the work ethic, honesty and
loyally Ty showed. He never once complained or avoid blame or throw anyone under
the bus! I hope he gets a chance to show his coaching abilities without the
handicaps he had here in Utah.
Once we have DL's new coach in place, I'm sure we will all feel a lot
better about our Utah Jazz.
I wonder if John Stockton...is ready to take a head coaching job...i doubt
it...since he is a family man...but...Danny Ainge...reached out to John Stockton
and Jeff Hornacek for the coaching job at boston...before settling with Doc
Rivers...during their run to the championship....im just saying...i think John
could be like Larry Bird...who find success in whatever he does...
@jamseniori think corbin has what? a quarter of a season + a
shortened season + a full season to coach...i think there's a lot of room
for growing with those times...and Jeff Hornacek...taking a suns team....to
places people didnt expect them to reach....with eric bledsoe being out most of
the time...Ty Corbin can't fully utilize the skills of his players...my
only knock on Hornacek would be he couldnt use miles plumlee
effectively...but...its because of the emergence of Markieff Morris...and he
always play the guy with the hot hand...unlike corbin...where in...he'll
probably pull em out...and put Richard Jefferson or Marvin Williams in...i just
hope we dont get vinny del negro as coach...he is like Corbin..
It's a no brainer that Corbin has to go. Attendance is down, didn't
play the younger players enough (especially Gobert). Bring in someone like Stan
Van Gundy or George Karl. Get two good players in the draft, sign you two good
free agents who can play D and contribute offensively. Trade Hayward, let
Williams and Jefferson walk. With our cap room, you can entice two really good
free agents to come here and get into the playoffs.
