Then the part where I get really, really confused: In 2011-2012, Tyrone Corbinís first full season coaching the Jazz, the team ranked 7th offensively after ranking 14th in the previous year, even amid all the Jerry Sloan/Deron Williams drama and departures. In 2012-2013, the Jazz ranked 11th offensively (tied with Dallas). I have to admit that these numbers surprised me. Could Alfense alone provide a decent offensive efficiency ranking, even if giving it the eyeball test was a painful experience for so many Jazz fans (how many truly enjoyed watching the pass-it-into-Al-and-watch-him-go-to-work-for-20-seconds offense? Iím curious. Not trying to be snarky. Just genuinely curious). Does Corbin have a system in place thatís better offensively than we realize? I guess only time will tell.
Al and Foye(and Marvin soon?) being gone hopefully will get them back to playing Jazz ball in the half court. They should get after people more defensively and run more this year too.
