One thing Sloan did well--over time--is convey why he made the tough choices that fans often got irate over. Those explanations won over the hearts of many doubters. Corbin thus far has been pretty damn aloof and detached in his responses. Even so, I hesitate to throw stones at the guy because he's in a really difficult spot. Is he supposed to come out and declare that he wants to transition away from Jefferson/Millsap and toward the young guys? That would absolutely kill team chemistry and convey weakness to the market about AJ and Sap's value to the franchise.
Corbin really is stuck in a hard spot on every angle I've looked at it this team. He's doing his best to move away from the thing we all hate the most which is black hole Jefferson-centric ball. He doesn't have the luxury of a dominant point guard to do this with & is clearly trying to go the next step by bringing Hayweird along to initiate the offense. Hayweird is inconsistent and incredibly frustrating at times though, and Mo Williams has plenty of limitations in addition to his propensity for chucking up volumes. The way I see it, Jazzfanz has been killing Corbin for remaining silent and holding his head high. He can't just come out and say "What the bleep do you people want me to do? Jefferson is inefficient in the low post and not dynamic enough to spread a team game further out. I don't have a point guard capable of doing the things Williams did within Sloan's version of Flex, I don't have a dominant 2 or 3 to run other offensive sets through, & our wing 3 point shooting is highly suspect at times if not always. This team is seriously ****ed people! Open your damn eyes to that fact. We've tried to sub in Favors, Kanter, and Burks, but they are just too damn raw and make as many mistakes as they get lost."
So there you have it. These are the reasons I don't feel right blaming Corbin for anything. He's a smart guy and it's not incredibly difficult to learn to copycat the offensive geniuses of the last 70 years. Corbin knows all the sets and can revert to a playbook in the case he doesn't. The guy has reasons for why he's not doing this or that, we just don't know them. Do we really think the Jazz organization hired a guy who didn't show Sloan of all people that he was capable of understanding plays in depth? After all, Corbin was in H.C. discussions a couple years before Sloan's departure. Who do we think gave Corbin a stamp of approval?
