So the SA win was the pinnacle? Will we be forced to endure a slow and steady slide into the abyss, without anything changing?
I kind of doubt it. Jazz managment built this roster with the goal of a 1st round payday. As the team continues to falter, and the playoffs drift further and further from view (today Jazz are in a tie for 9th place) managment will be forced by thier own goals, and for their own jobs, to do something.
May 21- Draft Lottery; June 27- NBA Draft; July 11- FA signing period begins; Oct 11- Preseaon game in Boise
Also, I cannot believe how many guys get HC jobs with never being a HC anywhere else first. If I was an owner, that would be the last thing I would do. Go be a hc at high school, then college ball. There is a huge difference in being a HC than being an assistant.
(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.
Maybe radical changes would be made if Mo had missed that last shot against SA.. Maybe -as mellow mentioned- wins like that just tolerating bad losses against teams that you should win and just postponing the change we need and causing pipe and wet dreams around the organization.. Milsap said sky is the limit for us after that game but next five game he and the others (vets) are like the failed rocket launching attempts by North Korea.
Corbin is the coach for no other reason than he just happened to be in the right place at the right time. By allowing this to happen, The Jazz have squandered what is perhaps their greatest commodity - and that is a Front Office with a proven track record of backing their coach.
Over the years, how many times have you seen good coaches get the rug pulled out from under them because some prima donna doesn't like them or because the players think he yells too much or he's not running the "right" type of offense? No former coach is going to say it because coaches live in a very tight knit community; but there are plenty of better qualified people than Corbin that would jump at the opportunity to be afforded the captial that Jerry Sloan enjoyed for 20+ years.
I agree with Gyp - Corbin's body language and facial expressions always makes me think he's either confused or one step behind what's going on. And the Raja Bell fiasco is a franchise embarrassment which he bears a good part of the blame.
He's in over his head both on game day and in the locker room and it's time to face up to it.
This is the most depressing thread on Jazzfanz.
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.
