    would the jazz improve dramatically with Malone as an assistant coach?

    There are a couple reasons that I bring this up.
    When Sloan retired, Malone said he wanted to be an assistant coach. Greg Miller did not allow this to happen. He said that he believed Malone was too "unreliable" to be an assistant coach. I think G. Millet was not only wrong but stupid for not making a move. Karl Malone was not un-reliable at anything he touched. He missed only 9 games in an 18 year career with the jazz. IaHow much more reliable can you get? Our defense would be an undestructable monster after Malone got done with them. If Millers dad (our true owner with a brain) could say Malone was worthy of a statue, than why would his son say he's not worthy of coaching? These guys need to learn defense and there's no better guy to do it. Those who saw Malone play know he's the man!!!!!

    A drastic change with Malone? Probably not, but I think he would help the team. They would benefit more from having him that not.
    I'd love to see him get his hands on Favors, and Kanter. Maybe he would light a fire under Big Al's lazy fat ass too.

    I don't know that Malone would help much. I could see him being a distraction and possibly undermining the FO or HC.

    There's a big difference between being a player (who was a bit of a drama queen behind the scenes) and being a coach.

    It would be an entertaining experiment. I say go for it.

    I don't agree with G Miller on the unreliable thing but I seriously doubt that Karl would be a good coach. Just don't see it. Many examples of great players not being good at coaching.

    At most I would give Malone a dual role as the strength and conditioning coach and the big man coach. I would not turn the entire team over to him.

    Has he ever coached anything in his life? Just becasue he was a great basketball player does not make him a good coach. With no experience in coaching I would not agree with turning the team over to him.

    I think the Jazz are a Karl Malone away from a championship.

    We were a Karl Malone away when we had Karl Malone too.

    Karl would make the halftime chat with a Jazz assistant segment MUCH more entertaining.

    Actually I think it would fun. This team, coach and owner are all so well behaved and say the nice things all the time. A little bit of personallity and a little bit of crazy would be fun.

    YES

    but would be better if hired as the headcoach.


    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."
