Corbin has a boring personality and was man enough to try and fill shoes that everyone knew couldn't be filled. I have mad respect for him. He's a good dude and meant well.
Sloan was still the coach during Okur's pick-and-pop 3s, IIRC.If you think about it, we've come a long way since Sloan. Jerry would probably have an aneurysm if he saw how many 3s the Jazz take. I used to hate 3 ball too and thought only great players and teams could take it inside. That's only half true.
Absolutely. And those 2nd round picks he gave up to get the current roster to work. What was he thinking?If only the stupid Dennis Lindsay didn't ruin the team by trading for Conley, the Jazz could've gone undefeated this year.
He's like the luckiest guy ever to make nothing but bad moves and trip backwards into a winning team.
Probably any one of us armchair GMs could have built this team into a dynasty already. You know, cuz we're a lot smarter than dum dum Dennis and Just-as-bad Justin.
Sloan was worried about the long rebounds from missed 3's turning into fast breaks on the other end. This is a valid worry if you cannot hit threes at a high rate. Bit us in the *** several times last year.Sloan was still the coach during Okur's pick-and-pop 3s, IIRC.
Back in the 90s, almost no one was converting 3s at a reasonable rate. I think we shot something like 20% on 3s in the 98 Finals.
MOre than anything else, Sloan wanted to win, and he would have been fine taking tons of 3s if it were winning basketball.
