Dennis Lindsey Rumors
Jazz GM Dennis Lindsey, Mike Wells (Bolomboy’s position coach) and Taylor meet weekly to discuss, among other things, what to do with Bolomboy that week. “It’s been a fun process,” says Bolomboy. “I get an opportunity to play and to get better, and when I’m with the Jazz I try to learn and pick up things from teammates, then come down here and test it out. Sometimes we experiment with things they want me to do, whether it’s running a play for me or posting up or shooting a three.”
Morey continues to insist that it was as much Alexander’s ideas as his own. “From the moment I interviewed here, to the people that were here before, like Dennis Lindsey (now the Jazz GM), and Rudy (Tomjanovich), they’ll tell you this is how he always felt like basketball should be played,” Morey said. “Obviously, I agreed with him, and we’ve been working towards that.” It’s not hard to find the genesis of Alexander’s philosophy. His Rockets won back to back titles in the Grab-and-Clutch era of the NBA in 1994 and ’95, leading league in 3-point attempts both seasons.
