    I remember Fesenko saga with DWill complaining about Utah's best defensive big with no offense polishing the bench.

    Yup, Sloan was just like Corbin is now, preach about Defense and start guys who play zero D but can run the offense.

    While Sloan might want to get back into coaching, let's not kid ourselves. He's old. I bet whatever job he takes next doesn't last 3 years.

    I remember Fesenko fouling at a rate higher than a pedo teaching preschool. BTW, he's out of the league.

    Wow!!! jazzfanz showing it's intelligence. Good hell!!! Fes is the card you want to play!!!! He was a train reck, and is no longer in the league. So not only did he not playing for Sloan, but not any other Coach in the NBA as well. Please tell me which big bench warmer that played under Sloan could actually hack it.

    HATER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    this poll should include a "F* NO!" for an option.
    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."

    4.17.14


    Dave Locke:
    The Jazz PR guy just walked by shaking his head at you.
    What did you do?

    Kanter: I dropped a bomb.

    ~I'm sure it's hell to go to the public bathroom Kanter uses.

    I also remember Fesenko bringing a level of defensive intensity that the regular rotation tended to not have, and that in game after game, when Fesenko was in, the opponents' point production went down and the Jazz closed deficits (or built leads).

    Foul trouble was not the reason that Fesenko was playing so little. He rarely fouled out. His foul shooting was poor, but that didn't stop the typical boost in net point production when he was in the game. The main reason was the bias toward the regular rotation, which we have been reminded in recent games to continue to be the bias for Sloan's successor, which has likely costed the Jazz wins.

    Against the Clippers on December 28, Kanter got 14 minutes--a chunk of time that Fesenko would've longed for--with 8 points and 5 rebounds (the same number of RBs as Millsap got in twice the time). The Undertaker's play was unpolished but effective. Kanter didn't do quite as well but in similar minutes on the 30th, but the bias was toward the regular rotation, including a 2-for-7 Millsap, who again equaled Kanter's RB production but in more time.

    The #1 problem for this team continues to be poor analysis of matchups and inadequate identification of players and rotations that are working on a given night.

    In other words, the Sloan legacy lives on.
    Someone asked if a center can still be a difference-maker in today's NBA, and Shaq said, "No. Not shooting jumpers."

    Yes. The hot hand is an important coaching piece and we seem to be lacking it nightly.

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

    "Hot hand", if you're referring to a player who is shooting unusually well on a given night, is not necessary for winning, although the "hot hand" might be part of the optimal rotation that TyCo is ignoring.

    Randy Foye probably thought that he was the "hot hand" on the 28th, going 5 for 9 from the 3, but he also had the worst +/- on the team (second to Big Black Hole Al Jefferson at -17). Hayward and Burks might have maxed out their time with 5 PFs each, but it appears that Hayward helping out on Paul was working.

    Millsap was a moderate contribution in the first game and a nonfactor in the second. His PT was cut to 20 minutes, but it continues to baffle me why Favors and Kanter play so much together when a pairing of (Jefferson or Millsap) plus (Favors or Kanter) would provide defense/strength and scoring simultaneously.

    When I use the phrase "hot hand" I'm referring to any player that is playing exceptionally well in any aspect of the game. It could be shooting, it could be rebounding, it could just be defense in general, anything works.

    And basketball is a rhythm game. If you've got a guy who's found a grove roll with it. I don't really buy into the idea that he hit the last two shots so he's more likely to hit the next shot, but a lot of times when a player is on they're on. Could be match-ups, could be confidence, could be something else, but it's something.
