Comments on: A Jazz Fan’s Thanksgiving Gratitude List http://saltcityhoops.com/a-jazz-fans-thanksgiving-gratitude-list/ The ESPN TrueHoop Utah Jazz Site Wed, 17 Sep 2014 22:05:32 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.0 By: Gerald http://saltcityhoops.com/a-jazz-fans-thanksgiving-gratitude-list/#comment-18151 Fri, 29 Nov 2013 15:27:30 +0000 http://saltcityhoops.com/?p=8877#comment-18151 I have been listing to nba.com and nbatv to get some input into what people nationally think. I do appreciate you coming up with a good coach that you think would help the Jazz. Lionel Hollins is a good coach that pushes defense and holding the ball to keep the scores low and his team in most games. This is good for your record, if you have those type of players, but not fun to watch. I do think he would be an improvement over Ty in some respects, but to keep the core happy and in Utah sometimes you have to have a coach that will work with the players which is not something Lionel could do in the past. Why do think he is still not a head coach now. I do think the Jazz missed the boat on Horny which I think will be a great head coach in the future. But Ty is better with defense schemes and Horny is much better in offense schemes, to bad you could not keep both. You will see Horny and Phoenix have a great team in 2 years, the number of draft picks they have next year when the best draft in many years will set them up for the future. It will be interesting watching the 2 teams to see how they improve over the next while and see the Jazz and the Suns dominate the West in about 2 to 3 years.

Not sure what ‘national broadcasters’ you are referring to, but Zach Lowe, who I do consider an expert, has been extremely critical of Corbin for some time. I think the consensus is that Corbin is the right coach to tank with.

Thank you very much it is nice to hear someone with some rationale to the Corbin situation. Also, I am thankful that the jazz now have another chance to have a winning streak come this Friday. If they can win again it’ll be a big boost to their confidence when going on the road to complete the home and home with phoenix.

If you listen to other “experts” from other markets over half the league are looking for a great coach. Try listening to the players, management, and national broadcasters and commentators and most praise the job Corbin is doing. If you are such of an “expert” step up and mention the great coach that the jazz should get and see if it really makes sense. I doubt that you could come up with one coach who is great who would even think about coming to Salt Lake. As long as the jazz players and management approve of Corbin and the jazz keep improving once all the players get healthy, I say keep Corbin.

The Sonics/Thunder went 20-62 in Kevin Durant’s rookie year, then 23-59 the following year after drafting Russell Westbrook. After that, they exploded to 50-32.

Maybe I shouldn’t expect a fight for the playoffs. Instead, maybe I should be hoping for as many growing pains as possible. Not so that we can cross our fingers for Jabari Parker, but so we can learn as much as possible and be ready to rise next season. (But that’s almost too pessimistic; I’d love to be a 7th or 8th seed.)
