A good coach gets 110% out of his players. Corbin can’t get 9 lottery players to win 25 games. Sloan got a bunch of misfits to nearly a .500 season.

Corbin has been tested and failed miserably. FIRE CORBIN. FIRE KOC.

I heard these guys on 97.5 THE ZONE raving about Favors’ potential. They said he could be like Kevin Garnett at the very best. And Kanter will be a solid 15 points/10 rebounds guy as soon as he becomes an above-average defender. Throw in a top 5 pick that could turn into a superstar, and the Jazz are set up best for the future out of the whole NBA.

Corbin is not the worst coach in the NBA, doesn’t deserve quite the level of hate he’s gotten, and it has been a less than ideal situation, but he’s not our guy. Both on his weird rotation patterns and on our terrible defense, and considering that he’s gone through the entire season as a lame duck with no reassurances from the front office, it’s pretty clear that the answer to both “should he be back?” and “will he be back?” are both no.

These include the lockout and no outside shooting the first as well as questionable inside D and PG issues such as health and talent during both. Despite those challenges he provided two winning play off run seasons including one appearance. That is far above average for a rookie/2nd year coach. This year he was not provided the tools to succeed on top of once again having our PG on the DL for a significant spell. You cannot measure one’s talent if they do not have the necessary tools. To correctly assess Corbin’s growth as a head coach we need to see him perform with the talent to compete which will hopefully be next season. I believe if we can add a legit lotto pick and use the freed up money wisely to compliment our young core we will soon see that Corbin is indeed the right coach for us.

I think the rebuild is going as well as could be expected with the possible exception of Hayward’s confidence issues, and the sheer lack of defense. I think the Jazz are still as likely as any team in the league to be a championship contender with their current roster and picks. I prefer our five young guys to any group in the league (3yrs experience or less).

It’s wrong to want the Jazz to lose. You want them to win every game they can. This year is different. We want the young guys to take control and see how well they can play, and determine how good they can be in the future, and ultimately decide if they are worth keeping.
So it’s okay for them to lose a lot this year because they are really young. But they will rebuild faster if their current core five win games and do well. It’s not faster to throw all but two good players away and hope ping-pong balls give you a top pick. That’s what Philadelphia is doing. They threw away everyone but Nerlens Noel, Michael Carter-Williams, and Thaddeus Young.

Basically he said that they believed that young players developed best in a real world NBA environment where you work for minutes, tried to win, etc… You can argue that this is not the best way to develop young players but it’s definitely a reasonable theory, and a reasonable theory is all that you can hope for because know one has proven that there is one correct way to develop young players.

So, they have theory in place, Corbin is following it, the only way it is different from Brown is that the angry fans who want the young gusy to play 48 min. have either not heard that interview or reject the premise.
