    "@sluhm :Jazz question of the day: Why is Marvin Williams starting ahead of, say, DeMarre Carroll? My guess: Williams more of a three threat ..."

    Again we run away from the more important question who makes us better, and who brings more to the game. If we are answered honestly
    it's Carroll. If Marvins average ability to hit wide open 3s is all that's keeping him in there bring in Hayward with the starters. Carroll can be the bench
    spark.

    Statistical analysis of this and other questions worth pondering.

    That is true enough, I've been calling CJ out on his racism for a while now. But he usually attempts to mask it by using code words such as 'hopper.' It is rare that he is so overt and unguarded in his racism.

    No other explanation is reasonable or plausible to your racist addled mind, that is. I can think off the cuff of a number of alternative possible explanations that are more plausible to my mind than your jump to the conclusion that Corbin favors blacks over white. Perhaps he believes that Marvin is better than he's playing, and he's hoping that by starting him Marvin will find his groove. Perhaps he feels that the Jazz play better over all with Hayward coming off the bench. Perhaps he feels that Williams contributes positively in other ways that don't show up in the box score.

    Remember, Corbin's reasons only have to make sense to him. He doesn't sit there and ponder what decisions will likely satisfy your standards of plausibility. AND I'm reasonably certain that Corbin's thought process, and thus what he finds reasonable, is not the same as yours.

    As for why Corbin does not start Carroll over Williams, well that can't possibly be explained in racial terms . . . unless Williams' skin is a darker shade than Carrolls'. Yes, that must be it, since no other explanation is reasonable or plausible

    .....lighten up! Obviously, I was just kidding! Corbin, like me, is completely color blind. He just doesn't know how to coach!

    Given your history posting here, concluding you were serious was a perfectly reasonable conclusion, more reasonable than the opposite I think.

    I'm skeptical, and am inclined to believe that you're now attempting to CYA, but if you insist, I am willing to give you the benefit of the doubt in this case.
