Pretty good work at Jazzfanatical:
As a coach who was a former journeyman player, you have to wonder how Corbinís experiences as a player are influencing his coaching decisions today.
On Nov. 15 last year, Matt Harpring was a guest on 1280. During that segment, the host of the show related the following:
PK talked to Ty Corbin, and Ty was talking about how during his career, it bugged him that every time he went to camp, it seemed like every year there was always some new hotshot, who hadnít proven anything, who was in front of him in the pecking order. And now, Ty plays veterans over young guys. I donít think thatís an accident. Thatís his story, thatís who he is.Ty seems to be improving a bit, but I've always wondered how his baggage in the league has affected his coaching. Pretty interesting to see his life's work as a player in light of his coaching.Are Corbinís experiences as a player influencing his coaching decisions, and are they influencing his coaching decisions to the detriment of the team? If so, does he see it?
This was Harpringís response to Corbinís comments on losing playing time to ďnew hotshots who hadnít proven anythingĒ:
As you get older, you gotta let things go, ícause otherwise you will stay in the past and run through mud the rest of your life. So in order to get better, you gotta kind of learn from the past and move on. And itís one thing to let it drive you and motivate you, but itís another thing to keep revisiting it and let [it get] you back down.
