    I would definitely touch my cousins with a ten foot pole!

    Mods please move to general discussion or make new subject "family discussions"

    Its just competitiveness with poor behavior skills that he has learned over the years. He's learned poor coping skills at some point (not hard to do when you are competitive) where he reacts negatively. Kind of like road rage. I assume this is the problem. This is how I am when I play or watch sports, and its a tough pattern to get out of.

    Very good post. I could expand on what led to this behavior, but it's Christmas Eve and I don't want to be here too long. If anyone really cares about knowing more, I'll post it later.

    Let's be honest, it was Coach Cal that did this to him. Terrible coach for a terrible college in a terrible state with terrible people in it.

Utah didn't hit a home run with any of the draft picks, nor does it appear the Williams' trade brought us a superstar. Jazz have some solid players, all good citizens, but nothing too special...unless Favors really picks up his game over the next 2 years.


    Time to takes some risks; otherwise, I fear Utah is locked into battling for the 6th-8th seed every year and drafting around 18th-20th.
    Is Corbin the guy to set him straight though? Do you see us getting a new coach anytime soon? I think not.

    The thing is that once was a fiesty big man who played for Utah. He fought with the coaches, he fought with the owner, he busted other players with a few cheap shots, he was full of himself, a real jerk by most people's standards......and thousands lined up to cheer for him.

    Utah fans, myself included, would love a little nasty mixed in with this bunch of choir boys. If Cousins could reign it in just a little, he could own this town.

    PKM is probably right, he needs a coach he was so committed to that he would die for him, and a player he respected who could put him in his place. And that isn't in Utah, but then again Frank Layden didn't exactly have a pedigree, and Stockton had to grow into Malone's partner.

    My thoughts exactly. Bring him on after we have a real coach.

You have to balls to say that when you pulled Alec after 16 minutes against LAC and Kanter got 19 minutes toinght?
