Wrong. I watched Jazz since 1993 quite a bit and started really following them since 1996. And you right, I am talking about 2003-2004 season. That was the best Sloan did by far. To bad he was never able to match it.

Corbin: Not even as good as Sloan's Johnson.

Looks like hardly anyone wants Corbin to stay. Wonder if that's also the feeling across Jazz Nation and if management is listening to it.
Scott Skiles, if he ever wants out of Milwaukee, would fit the Jazz nicely. Always liked his fiestiness; he gets his players in line real quick, or they're ridin' the pine.
Last night, trailing by 27 with 2:50 left in the 3rd quarter in Chicago, he left his starting unit on the bench for the rest of the game. Result - Bucks 93, Bulls 92...
I don't think even this board is at the stage where it's "Fire Corbin immediately regardless of the consequences." The question this thread posed was whether I'd like Jerry back. I would, at this point, but barring that or Phil coming to be the head coach alone, I want Corbin to stay until the end of the season. Hell, even if Jerry and/or Phil came back, I'd hate to see Corbin fired. Maybe he could just take a demotion.

He seriously does look like he put on about 10-15 years since he stopped coaching 2 years ago. The Lakers situation didn't seem far fetched; him trying to help build a team of young guys does.

Yes I agree - BUT - I just don't think that's how the Jazz management does thing. When Sloan left, they could have had Corbin in there as interim and re-assess at the year end and look at other unemployed coaches. Instead they gave Corbin the contract straight away (Corbin being someone they know & trust).

as much as I don t appreciate the overjobsecurityworriedness of ty and the afraidly taken decisions affected by it, I do believe change of head coach is the last thing that this young jazz squad -I mean bench- needs right now. the team is having rough days, stars feeling under the weather, last year of contracts etc. give the jazz and corbin another 30 games to settle things.
Sloan... that was a 20+ year old story dude. Some people just love to fair with mediocrity.

He took a team the following year, that was, on paper better than the 2003-2004 team to a record that didn't even sketch 30 wins. BWAH.
