Utah Jazz Head Coach Tyrone Corbin Visits South African Apartheid Musuem

Greg Smith- USA TODAY Sports

Tyrone Corbin, the Utah Jazz head coach, recently visited Sout Africa for the Basketball without Borders program. Corbin will be in for some tough work next season, but it is good that he is giving back to the community for a bit this summer. Really love the basketball program and here is hoping that they are leaving an impression and impact out there.

Of all the teams in the West next season, the Jazz might have the toughest time making the playoffs though and it will be interesting to see the level of support Corbin has throughout the year. They have some nice young potential on the front line, but their guard play is quite young and I question whether they will be ready for playoff basketball. Love Trey Burke as a player, but it may take a couple years before he is truly playoff ready. Maybe I am selling him short, but just think it is going to take a bit more time.

Some have written the Jazz will be bad enough to contend in the Andrew Wiggins sweepstakes, but there are some truly bad teams in the Eastern conference. It might be tough for the Jazz to outstink the cellar of the East and that will likely land them in the 4-6 pick range. But you never know how those lottery balls will bounce; maybe there will be some good fortune in the future of the Utah Jazz.

Rudy Gobert With The Grown Man Dunk

Although Andre Drummond and the Detroit Pistons would have the final laugh, Rudy Gobert opened some eyes on this grown man dunk in the first quarter. The Stifle Tower is one of the best young big men in the game, and it's safe to say he took this matchup with Drummond seriously.
