I'm convinced that this is a developmental season where Burks/Favors/Kanter/Hayward all play outside their comfort zone and try to add more skill set against the bench. It's a good thing because it'll allow Favors and Kanter to be more than one-dimensional. Same with Burks though he's got it harder because he has to play a position where he isn't supposed to be on all the time and a position where he is supposed to be on all the time.

Anyways, that's just a theory. It could be that the coaching and managing of the Jazz sucks really bad and then we're all screwed and life sucks and Corbins a hack and the city will move and Windows 8 sucks.

And some of it is Marvin just being human, wanting to live off his 8 million dollars he makes every year so he can tat his body up, do whatever in his downtime and still be guaranteed 30 minutes a night regardless of his performance.
Typically, players use the first few seasons to hone their skills and perfect what they already know so that their advantages in college continue to be so in the NBA. Millsap was not forced to develop his jumper in his rookie or sophomore year, since that would have been an idiotic move on a cosmic scale. His PF skills needed a lot of work before any attempt to expand his game. Similarly, Favors strengths are all wasted. It's not like he has a great offensive game outside of the post. All that "playing outside of his comfort zone" will accomplish, is to add another set of poorly developed skills that are simply not helpful at this level of basketball.

Hell, AJ was lauded for learning to pass every now and then when he gets the ball in the post. To Corbin, not shooting the ball every single time you touch it is an achievement worth publicizing.
Ironically, I would be more accepting of the approach if it was taken with the mentality you seem to espouse. I would not agree with it. But I would accept that my basketball knowledge pales in comparison to people who have been around the NBA for decades. But that's not it. Corbin is simply not an NBA level headcoach. He's the perfect yesman in an organization that no longer cares about high level competition, and is contented offering a passable product that brings in moderate profits with little risk.
Is "Fresh Prince," carolinajazz' alt account?

Comparing Marvin to DMC isn't fair as DMC gets his burn with Favors/Kanter/Watson/Burks/Hayward vs. Marvin with Al/Millsap/Foye (3 players who probably 'haven't checked my stats' shoot the most on our team).
I agree, we are using him incorrectly and this article is pretty much on. Free him up with some shots and get him involved in the offense (If we have one that is) and I think he is a MUCH better player from what he has shown us.
I thought when the Jazz got him he was supposed to flourish because he is a spot up shooter. Now he sucks because he can't slash and create his own shot enough?
Just face it the guy is about the 8th - 10th best player a given team.
How dare you! Never disgrace!
