    This same thing happened in Brooklyn and we killed them.

    Errr......I mean....fire Ty!!
    There would be no problem with Al if he could score as efficiently as most #1 options, but with an awful TS% of 52%, you need to mix it up more. You are statistically an underdog nearly every game.

    Names of plays matter?

    Having players on the same team learn new names to the same plays would seem to be completely unnecessarily

    You don't seriously think the Jazz would be better off with different play names, do you?

    Probably not. But different PLAYER names MIGHT make a difference.
    a blast from the past...

    Sub Burks/Favors for the lockdown duo of Earl/Jeffy when we have a 10 point lead and only need to play defense.......

    This.

    Poeple find just aboyt anything to bitch about. Every team with a half-decent scout can know the other team's plays inside out. Anyone who played the Jazz in the 90s knew the PnR was coming at the end of the game. And still couldnt stop it. Any Phil Jackson coached team ran the same triangle offense. Teams couldnt stop it. Its about the players and execution, not the plays.

    Iam sure Corbin and co. might have thrown a few wrinkles out there and added a few plays which Korver didnt go over in detail. Wasnt the first thing Corbin did after he took over was change Sloan's defensive method of funneling the offensive players down the middle of the lane to forcing them baseline? Thats quite a considerable adjustment to begin with. A not-so-subtle change in defensive philosophy . Wonder why Korver or nobody here talks about that.

    Here is an example of real HC, one who takes risks to get a ring:

    "The San Francisco 49ers are going to win the Super Bowl because they have a dynamic offense, a great defense and the experience that comes from suffering a heartbreaking defeat in last year's NFC Championship Game.

    But that's not all. They're going to win because their coach, Jim Harbaugh, won the biggest gamble of this NFL season. He stunned plenty of people when he replaced starting quarterback Alex Smith with second-year backup Colin Kaepernick shortly after midseason. Now those same skeptics are realizing Harbaugh knew precisely what he was doing.

    That move is worth focusing on because this postseason is once again reminding us how much nerve matters in the quest for a championship. A team can have everything on paper. It can have all the necessary regular-season achievements, including the double-digit win total and a locker room filled with Pro Bowlers. But it can't push deep into the playoffs if a coach makes the wrong decision in the toughest situations.
    "

    Not saying the situation is completely analagous, but I see no evidence of this type of courage in Ty or management. Ty seems to coach from fear of having his young guys screw up.
