(first update) Offseason to-do list:
1. Let Mo, Foyeeee3, Al (s&t?), Watson, and Tinsley go.
2. Re-sign Carroll
3. Draft McCollum, Schroeder, and Giannis (leave the latter two in Europe for a year [maybe two years for Giannis]).
4. Sign Tony Allen
5. Try to keep Millsap. If that doesn't work, explore s&t options.
6. Remove Corbin. Hire Brad Stevens or SVG.
7. Sign Calderon to a one-year (2 max) deal, or see if the cash-strapped Lakers will let us absorb Nash's last year.
How pissed are we going to be when burks blows up at the end if this season???
Freakazoid = Matt Harpring. Just ask him - he won't deny it.
My Dream Draft '13: Trey 'Black Jesus' Burke & Glen Robinson III
My "back to reality" Draft '13 Dennis Schroeder aka "German General" & Giannis Adetokunbo aka "Greek Freak"
I'll give Corbin credit for making him hungry by forcing him to earn it. Just the way I think.
Big Al is a vet, Marvin -again a vet-, Carrol has earned his time through gritty play and hard work, Earl plays because he is the only PG backup who doesn't run with a cane, Foye has established his ability to nail a 3 multiple times in a game which the Jazz needed, and Millsap earned his time through -again- gritty play and hard work.Ya, that was brilliant. Now get to work on Big Al, Marvin, Carrol, Earl, Foye, Sap...
Being a vet is more than just Raja'ish pride and arrogance, it is proving the ability to contribute to winning a game, and all of the players who are playing have done this. Admittedly they haven't been on top of it lately, maybe teams have watched tape and found their weaknesses lately, but until someone shows the ability to outperform them than they will be first on the floor.
None of these guys are stars, or have earned some sort of free pass. Especially Carrol. He did earn the minutes he got, but they don't go on forever.
He should be on a short leash. Heavens knows Kanter, and Burks are. Why on earth would Carrol be above them because of a good patch of games?
"Most nights (The Jazz) couldn’t stop a grandpa with a walker, particularly if he gave a head fake."
Playing well is priority #1 and nothing outside of that is really even close. If you're hoping someone else ****s up, then you don't deserve the break.
my off is pissed too
