I just listened to the interview and he is certainly very convincing and
presents some compelling arguments on how to build a team both offensively and
defensively. I think he has a lot going for him. He certainly has an ideal
opportunity to succeed. He has inherited a great who that needs the type of
player development he excels at. The Jazz also have an opportunity to get
another excellent prospect later this month and have the cap space to bring in
some veteran players through free agency or trades. Of course all of this is
academic until tip off, but I think there is reason to be hopeful.
I did my own analysis of all the Jazz coach interviewees and announced to
friends a week ago that Quin Snyder was definitely the best choice. I felt
confident that he would be chosen. I'm truly excited about this pick and
about the future of Jazz basketball. Snyder is the real deal.
Being from Missouri, I would like to see the connection to the Jazz continued.
Missouri-Columbia is in the middle of the state on the highway 70 corridor.
Kansas City is on the left and St. Louis is on the right. Both cities have
fertile beds for basketball. Rick Majerus coached at SLU before he died. As a
graduate of St. Louis University, I would like to see the Jazz invited to town
for a game.
I have to wonder if our new coach is looking at this article this morning and
wondering about our local sports media when he reads that Dennis Lindsey is a
basketball legend and Larry Brown is just a good old Mike Budenholzer/Mike Brown
level coach. Wow.
Touche, bgl. I'm going to rephrase that. I meant to refer to Dennis Lindsey
as one of the respected mentors Quin Snyder has had, not that he's a
By the way, the reason I'd lumped together those four -- Coach K, Pop,
Messina and Lindsey -- is because Snyder specifically mentioned them.Anyway, hope you found something positive from the writing as well.Jody
Glad I have ESPN, TNT and ABC sports, you decide why? Why not just keep Ty vs
making another inexperienced change? Way to go Greg and family. Gail, did you
really challenge the new coach for a championship, when was the ever a priority
for the Jazz?
