    That's because Corbin doesn't make adjustments in games and is afraid to sit players like Millsap at the end of games.
    I'll make sure it's not an option

    I made this point way before anyone else did.

The vets will be replaced with the other vets, since the youths won't be "ready". And they never will, since their development has been glacial with such limited minutes. The Jazz may manage to make the playoffs next year even! By then, we will have certainly lost Burks and most likely one of the young bigs.

    I've pretty much written off this season. I don't see any plausible scenarios that can get me excited. Even if the Jazz somehow mesh into an awesome team that lands a decent seed and make it to the second round (lol), I don't see a way of going forward from there. Best possible situation would be shipping Burks along with one of the vets in return of a young asset, and giving Favors and Kanter legit starter minutes next season and rebuilding around that adjusted young core. This season would still count as a waste of time, but at least we'd get to watch a fun team that makes a playoffs run, and maintain a winning culture. And we can do what we should be doing now starting with the next season.
    I am starting to believe we are thinking too highly of our young guys. The more I see Kanter play the more mistakes I see him making. He isn't ready for more than his 10-15 minutes.

    Hayward seems to be who he is going to be. A good, smart player who's jumper is streaky.

    Favors is slowly evolving into a very good big man who isn't a #1 scoring option.

    Burks is the big unknown.

    I figure the Jazz will be a 7th or 8th seed. Might take it to 6 games in the playoffs. Sad thing is I see tons of potential. Favors, Kanter both have moments were they look like the bright future. When Hayward is confident he is pretty good too. Mo Williams really makes things go smoother on offense. I think a coaching change and some trades midseason could take us from 6-8th seed to a possible 4th or higher...but that won't happen

    Like GF I agree with Spazz. Jazz have a decent record with a much increased road scedule at the start of the season.

    If the Jazz stay undeafeated at home and continue to win 40% of road games then they finish 57-25 for the season. We all know they won't but I think that they are ina better position now than this time last year.

    Still dissapointed in Ty and think we could have been 11-5 - 13-3 with a better coach. (@ Boston, @ Philly, @ NO #1 and @ Sactown were all very winnable)

    Jason, I see the icon for "rep" management, and another one for reporting a post, but I can't find the "shiny sticker on forehead" icon. Please help.

    It's okay there is a stamp on his forehead already, no need for a sticker.

    No NBA teams win all the winnable games though. I agree they were winnable, only NO and Sac SHOULD have been wins.

    If you two clowns would have read the first page, you would know why I said that. Now both of you go put stickers on your foreheads.

    I read that as "pot stickers" at first and, btw, that made the sentence make no sense at all.

    Nice catch. You deserve a sticker too.

    Can't think of a better place to post this but didn't Jazz teams of old always go for the 2-for-1 when they had possession with ~35s left in the qtr? The current team holds the ball until there is 18s or so and seems to end up jacking up a shot anyway. Why not push the ball up the floor and take a quick 3 or get to the rim if possible leaving enough time to get the ball back for the last shot?

    Uhhmm I did but reading and recalling are two totally different things.

    However my post in no way had anything to do with what was on the first page and everything to do with trout and your enjoyment of having your forehead stamped. I apologize if I led you to believe otherwise.
