    I don't know what it used to be. But the emphasis now seems to be on putting bums on seats.

    Doesn't matter whether we win championships or not, as long as we're selling tickets.

    And I don't like it one bit

    Jazz basketball for most of our lifetimes has only been played by great players (Malone, Stock, Deron) and great coaching (Jerry). This team has neither of those aspects and no signs of getting back to that any time soon.

    Jazz basketball used to be:

    #1 Hard nosed, physical, and disciplined. We lived in the paint and FT line. We had a (predictable) but devastating offensive play/strategy. Stockton to Malone... Duron to Boozer/Memo. Currently, we avoid the FT line and paint at all costs and have no strategy or idea what the hell works. We rarely play physical, we're mentally weak, and typically come out lackadaisical. We're in... what? Year 3? And I still ahve no clue what the hell Ty Corbin is trying to do.

    #2 We used to play inside out. Not chuck from the outside in. In the old Jazz system the "Big 4" would be the primary scorers while Hayward, Burks, etc would be cutting and slashing to the rim rdy to receive passes from the post players. The PG's primary job was to get the ball to these primary scorers. Today, we have a SG who tries to play PG and 2 PG's who are literally 5 years past their expiration date.

    #3 We used to control the tempo, execute until we got the shot that we wanted (even if the shot clock was winding down), and made players in our system better. Duron Williams just reminded us this past week of this fact. Whether it was Howard Eisley, Shandon Anderson, Carlos Boozer, or Duron Williams... Players typically increased while in our system and declined when outside. The exact opposite is occurring right now. We never control the tempo, never execute even good shots, and I honestly can't think of a player in our system who wouldn't benefit greatly by going elsewhere.

    #4 Lastly, leadership. Larry, Jerry, Stock/Malone, Duron, etc wanted to win. I'm not so sure Greggy, Ty, and our "star players" are very concerned over that right now. It seems like one is concerned about merely filling his bank account, Ty is busy cheerleading instead of leading, and our "star players" are too concerned with getting theirs so they can request pay increases this summer.

    I think the Jazz are great. We have the best GM in the world. I love the direction. Awesome. We must not have used our playoff experience super powers on the the GS tankers. What a flukey game.

    I miss this so much, and this more than anything stands out when I watch the games. We see maybe 1 or 2 hard backdoor cuts per game, and I'm shocked when I see a smooth hand off like you'd see in the old days. Just by doing that, even a guy like Ronnie Brewer can look talented.

    All the good things I remember from last and this season was the games when BigAl was missing. I mean the Lakers away game, the Toronto 130pts game which raised the team spirit. Once he came back - everything became just pathetically average and not fun.
