Utah Jazz: Al Jefferson arrives, and Raja Bell is on the way
New Jazz big man eager to finally play 'with a great team'
Even for Miller, who admitted the Lakers, Heat and Celtics are going to be awfully tough next season.
"I think it's a little early to be projecting where we might win. I think the best approach for us to take as a franchise is just to be competitive," Miller said. "We're going to go out and try to win every game we can, every night.
"We're not going to win every game. We're probably not going to win a championship," he added, "but that doesn't mean we're not going to give everything that we've got."
Jefferson is bringing some pretty high hopes with him.
"Hard work and dedication — I'm going to do whatever it takes," the 6-10 big man said. "I don't want this team to take no step backwards. I want to keep continuing to go forward. I'm going to dedicate everything I can to help this team get to the Finals and win it."
If that happens, he can expect even bigger crowds waiting for him — and not just at the airport.
