If the Jazz hire Jim Boylen I won't renew the season tickets I don't
You've got to be kidding me. This guy has an overall losing record for his
20 year career and got fired from his last head coaching job. Sounds eerily
similar to the coach the Jazz just gave up. What makes this ironic
is a Jazz employee (Jeff Hornacek) replaced this guy at Phoenix after he was
fired there a year ago. That makes a lot of sense to have given up a coach that
is proving himself to be a real winner (Jeff was recently 2nd in voting for NBA
Coach of the Year) in return for one that has a losing career record. I
seriously doubt Jazz management is that dumb. Or at least I certainly hope
not!Messina, the coaching legend from European league basketball
(where many current NBA players came from) is still available. He's won
three-quarters of over a thousand games as a head coached and currently has 12
ongoing league championships in a row. He's as proven of a winner as they
come... literally. He's a defensive specialist and a true guru of
basketball x's and o's. Without question, Lindsey should get him under
I am beginning to think jazz management is a brick short of a full load.
Messina would be a great pick but Lindsey wants Corbin II.
you guys know...that this is only an interview right....they did mention they
will probably talk to about 20 head coaches...this is just number 2....so
relax....im praying...the Jazz get Lionel Hollins before its too late...
Having personally lived through the Alvin Gentry era in Phoenix, Jazz management
would be crazy to hire this guy! Defense??? Gentry doesn't even know the
meaning of the word.Messina please! Hollins, you bet! Gentry, well
... I got 4 million people in the Valley of the Sun who'd all say no way.
Jazz management let Jeff Hornacek walk last year when they should
have committed to him long-term. Jazz 0, Suns 1. Just my humble
opinion but the only real decent personnel move O'Conner ever made was the
D'Will trade, and in that one he should have gotten him out of their before
Sloan said enough was enough. Lindsey, O'Conner - nothing for Millsap and
Jefferson - really? Having followed the Jazz for years I wish
Larry, Frank and Jerry were still calling the shots.
Sounded like Jerry Sloan was willing to give coaching another try. A guy like
him would be great at getting more out of the talent they have. Then getting a
better guard line through the draft, especially with better perimeter shooters,
the Jazz might be a contender once again.
Kakashi is 100% spot onThe team can interview 6 billion people for
all I care, so long as they pick a good coach.
