Corbin has been bad enough to get canned already? Were kind of in a rebuilding mode here. Kind of harsh to get rid of him already when hes had no star players to work with.
Nothing with thie players, its his questionable rotations, putting the hottest players on the bench for long periods of times and then putting cold guys like Foyle in late in the games, and his ridiculous faith in the "veterans" like Tinsley, Watson, and Mar. Williams instead of progressing the young players drive me nuts. We should be a playoff team and he just doesnt have what it takes to get this team motivated enough to close out games. I would love to know the point differential for us in the second half because we never show up after halftime, with the Bulls game as an exception. Its bad coaching not just the players' fault. Our team is definitely good enough for a #6 seed right now but instead we're unraveling.
Fair enough. I havent been following as closely as I should.
The NBA is a star driven league, so the total lack of star players has to count for something. Its pretty much impossible to win a title in the NBA with less than 2 stars, and the Jazz have none. Corbin hasnt impressed me at all since he took over, but you cant just give a coach a team where Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap are the best players and expect them to be a contender.
We had a little something going with Williams, Boozer, and Kirilenko, but they let it fizzle out instead of building on it. One frustrating thing about the Jazz is how conservative they always are with their draft/free agency/trades. They rarely make the high upside pick, or trade for a high risk/reward guy. Its always safe, fundamental basketball. Thats nice and all, but it doesnt win titles anymore.
I still cant figure out what happened to the NBA. It was the sport that first turned me into a sports fanatic. I was a HUGE basketball from from 1993-2002. Now i barely pay attention.
