The Jazz had a shooting coach and while Hornacek was here Sloan would never hire
him because he knew that often great players are not good coaches ie, Larry
Bird, Michael Jordan.While Hornacek was the shooting coach the Jazz
were 27th to 30th in the league in shots made. Corbin hired him as a friend
when he was new to head coaching, turns out he was a terrible shooting coach.
As a head coach he seems to be doing better.TheJazz have shooting
issues for sure and they tried to address them by hiring the new sf from
Toronto, paying him twice what he made last year. He is a glorified Korver who
can hit the shot but took defense lessons from Al Jefferson and Korver who could
not defend a jr high player.
Game is tied less than two minutes to go. Burke turns the ball over and misses
every shot taken after that except one miss by Exum and a dunk by Gobert. Jazz need trade the all rookie point guard for a point guard.The play by play indicates the defense went south also. Hopefully Jazz will
sign Motee or whatever his name is.
CJMiles: Good to see your positive comments, I agree.
I really like what I saw in Motum, I hope he gets a chance to make the team in
the fall. I would like to see the Jazz sit Burke and start Exum at the point in
this last game. Gobert has looked good, but still needs more strength and work.
Europe? Exum may be raw but he will be playing in the NBA this year and have an
impact on the team. He is going to be an elite player within 5 years. Hood and
Exum are two of the best players in this years draft. Both will have a positive
impact on the Jazz in the coming season. Either Lindsey is smart or lucky,but
either way, he had a great draft.
We HAD a shooting coach. His name was Jeff Hornacek. He took his talents to
Phoenix. Not sure if we will ever find one as talented as him. Which explains
why Phoenix got sooooo much better so fast.
Seen for eleven and 3 of 4 in three point still looks good for Rodney Hood. He
looks like the real deal. Exum looks very raw. Even this early, it looks like
Exum should be sent to play in Europe.
Need a shooting coach!
