The coach isn't the main reason why the Jazz suck. The players need to take the responsibility for their lackluster performance. Unfortunately, the Jazz have several nice players but they have few who play hard all the time.
In the post game tonight, Ty looked like his dog just got ran over. I feel for the guy. If KOC and Dennis the Menace aren't going to help him then I hope, and I feel terrible for saying it, I hope there is an injury that makes a lineup change necessary for a couple of weeks.
Ladies and Gentlemen, the Jazz have jumped the shark, and NBA has nuked the fridge.
This Jazz teams lacks athletic ability, basketball skills, basketball brains, basketball intellect, basketball smarts, basketball savvy....did I miss anything?
The main thing they lack is basketball IQ in the positions where they need it -- that is at the point. While Tinsley has it, he doesn't have the athletic ability to play extended minutes. Foye is a horrible point guard. The only thing he is good at is spot up shooting and I don't how many games we have lost in the fourth quarter because of his porous defense. Marvin is Mr. Inconsistent. He seems to have the ability but he just doesn't have a good nose for the basketball or where to be at the right time. And Mo, well, he also is not a good point guard. He's a scorer and when he's on, he can carry a team, but when he's off, you might as well let Tinsley run the offense.
I still think last year was a mistake in making the playoffs and we're paying for it this season. I think it's time now to think about the future and play the young guys. And for God's sake, give Carroll a chance. I don't understand the hate on this board for him. The guy's a scrapper, which you can't say about too many guys on our team right now.
The bench showed up. The starters didn't. Don't paint the "players" in such a broad brush.
Players should have been held responsible. The starters should have been benched. All of them. He should have rolled with his entire bench to start the 2nd half and play most of it. Send a damn message and stop being Jefferson's bitch.
Starting lineup for the 2nd half should have been Burks, whatever, Carroll, Favors, Kanter.
What's the worst that could have happened? They lost? Hell, we're doing that anyway with the starters.
A perfect opportunity to send a message was lost tonight.
When has Ty ever disciplined anyone?
If the Lakers could fire a coach after 5 games why can't the Jazz fire a coach who has sucked for 2 1/2 years?
I look at the talent we have... And there's no way we should be losing to the teams that we have lost and are losing to. No way. And it's not like we're getting any better. This team is quickly regressing despite adding more and more talent.
We have absolutely no positive direction right now. It's pretty obvious that Ty isn't the right coach here.
We not only need to free Burks, tell Hayward to STOP shooting (but to attack the rim), trade Jefferson, and play Favors 30+, but we need a coach who can get this offense and defense going. I mean... We really do look like the Adrian Dantley coached Nuggets out there. Or the Cowboys under Wade Phillips. Tons of talent but no leadership, direction, or motivation.
We are going through the motions even at home! There's no way that the Lakers game should have been as close as it was. They had quit on their coach.
The problem is not who's playing, it's the offense we run. Phil Jackson could not win with Ty's offense just by subbing different players into the lineup. Fix the offense, fix the team, and that won't happen unless Ty is gone.
I agree. The offense sucks.
But the rotations suck too.
As does the effort.
As does the leadership (or lack thereof).
We're talented and probably could rock NBA 2k13. But this team is now 4-6 after playing a pretty damn easy schedule.
Maybe we could talk Phil Jackson into taking his revenge on the Lakers by coaching the Jazz.

Fortune and glory, kid. Fortune and glory.
