Now like most of you in here I anticipate that this season is not going to be pretty. I expect there not to be a lot of continuity on offense, the appropriate defensive rotations will also take time to come around. But what I didn’t expect and really hope to change is that Corbin looks more lost with this team than ANY player on the Jazz roster. I understand that he may not know what rotations he’s going to use, but the line ups that he used last night were flat out wrong. As a coach, no matter how bad your team is, on a professional level there are things that you need to do and understand and it was very obviously that Corbin hasn’t been getting it. I’m not just talking about the game last night. This has carried over from last season to now. Our offense CANNOT be just pass it to Jefferson on the low block and cut off of him, we CANNOT start Raja and give him extended runs in the game when he’s being worthless. Being a new team all around we MUST get up and down the floor. To play a slow grind it out game exposes us. We are young, athletic and not experienced, these young men have to get out and run. And for gods sake Corbin come up with some decent offensive plays. If you have a young team that doesn’t have a lot of continuity or power put in a standard motion offense until these guys and YOU get it figured out. Devin Harris has no clue what to do in our half court sets (the few that we have) and he’s supposed to be the leader of our team. I watched an interview of Harris about a month ago in which he had mentioned that he was never given a play book to study over the off-season. There are far to many things that Corbin is doing right now that are giving me serious concerns about his coaching ability and I’m not referring to just the game last night. I truly hope that we see Corbin make tremendous improvement tonight because his coaching up to date has been inexcusable.
