It would be quite a get to get Sloan back. I would even take him back as a consultant like Jerry West for the Warriors.
Looks like hardly anyone wants Corbin to stay. Wonder if that's also the feeling across Jazz Nation and if management is listening to it.
Scott Skiles, if he ever wants out of Milwaukee, would fit the Jazz nicely. Always liked his fiestiness; he gets his players in line real quick, or they're ridin' the pine.
Last night, trailing by 27 with 2:50 left in the 3rd quarter in Chicago, he left his starting unit on the bench for the rest of the game. Result - Bucks 93, Bulls 92...
On another note, I need to find a way to score those tickets right next to Jerry one of these games and just try to annoy him indirectly by talking out my ass about what's happening on the court.
IF the Jazz does let Corbin go (and that's a pretty big IF considering Corbin's relationship with Greg), I think they'll look to promote from within or hire someone they know & trust, rather than go out searching for a journeyman like JVG, SVG, etc, etc.
as much as I don t appreciate the overjobsecurityworriedness of ty and the afraidly taken decisions affected by it, I do believe change of head coach is the last thing that this young jazz squad -I mean bench- needs right now. the team is having rough days, stars feeling under the weather, last year of contracts etc. give the jazz and corbin another 30 games to settle things.
David Locke: "Because what happens in this league is, people start shooting threes and they get soft and donít want contact and then they just stay out there all the time. Youíre not going to get soft, are you?"
Enes Kanter: "I kind of live in the paint, man. Come on. I wonít get soft. Donít worry about that."
October 2014 Update: Enes is eating crow so far.
And why would you not trust a coach? There's only 30 teams in the NBA, most coaches that are needing hired are going to teams with lower winning percentages, etc. But hey, lets bring back a coaching staff that is still stuck in a 1990 playbook, yeah.
I could eat a peach for hours.
