Spot on. Horny will be an awesome coach and hopefully he will be our awesome coach if and when we finally get rid of Ty, who I like on a personal level, but who sucks as a coach.So far as Horny is concerned, I think we will find he knows a lot more about coaching than what you might think. His father was a very successful high school coach; in fact, he was Isaiah Thomas's (the original HOFer's) high school coach. So Horny grew up with coaching basketball, which is probably one reason why he had such a high bb IQ as a player.
and also, he's 5-0 when Pop is away during sick days. Don't know if that says much what with the talent on the team though.I think we could get Phil or Larry if the price was right. As for Budenholzer, he's been an assistant coach for the Spurs since Coach Pop started ('96) So he has a lot of experience under him. Plus he'd be coming from the Spurs and he knows pretty much everything and could be a great coach. Better than Ty that's for damn sure.

Corbin might get better, though. I doubt much, but maybe (he won't be Phil or Pop, ever, but the next tier might be enough... if he ever gets there). Corbin is fine, but I don't know if that will do. I find it very disconcerting how little leadership he shows or proves. No one would disagree that the Jazz have better players this year, yet the Jazz at the end of the day will have been only AS good at best, or have regressed since last year. I am not impressed.
I've been talking myself into Corbin basically since he was named coach because I thought the hire was amateur hour (making full head coach and extending immediately, interim on the other hand only would've made sense). He definitely deserved a chance, but if the Jazz miss the playoffs with a better team, a full offseason, a training camp, and nearly 0 roster change? I don't know. This is a topic I spend a lot of time avoiding because a bad (but not bad enough, and extended no less) coach can upend all of the good going on, and quite honestly, I think we've been seeing some of that.
I go back and forth on this, and I've hoped that we'd see some decisiveness without Al, but... *shrug*
No one roots harder for Corbin to succeed than me.
Mark Cuban is a ****ing sociopath.
