Game 42 at NJ: At the halfway point
So…this is where I’m at: I’m not calling for a trade, or a lineup change.
If your kid is failing school because he doesn’t do his homework and plays video games until 4 a.m., do you do his homework for him so that he gets good grades, or do you sit his ass down and make him study?
These are grown men we have on the Jazz. They need to figure out how to play together and help each other. At the end of the day, they will be stronger for having gone through the process. They have what it takes and the chemistry to win. We’ve seen that. So I don’t want the coaches bailing them out by doing their homework for them, i.e. changing the lineup or playing different guys. I don’t think the Jazz are getting beat or overpowered by other teams. I think the Jazz are the ones losing games, and they only have themselves to blame. So it’s on these millionaires to get their act together.
