The Post-Jerry Sloan-Era

In Jazz history we will always think of things in two different eras; Jerry Sloan’s Ministry Amongst The People of Utah and the Post-Jerry Sloan-Era.  During Jerry’s “ministry” he did things his way and it worked. He coached the Jazz for 23 seasons and had a winning record for 21 of his full seasons with the Jazz. He always found a way to get the most out of players that some would say had no business playing in the NBA (see Jarron Collins, Adam Keefe, Greg Foster, etc.)

This year has been a different story. With a high turnover from last season and an influx of youth, the team never bought into Jerry’s system and never executed to his expectations. Whether you choose to blame it on Jerry’s stubbornness, Deron’s stubbornness, today’s players lacking work ethic, or wrong personnel for the system, something is wrong.

So what is the solution? Major personnel changes need to be made or the system needs to be revamped.

Ty Corbin brings youth and the ability to relate to today’s NBA player, but will it matter if the system stays the same? This group of players did not buy into a system that has worked for a Hall-of-Fame coach for over twenty years. What makes people think that the players will buy into that same system being used by a coach with no head coaching experience? If this group of players remains with the team, then a new system will need to be implemented.

If the system stays the same, then there is a need for a significant change in personnel.  What do you think needs to change?
