The collective heart of Utah Jazz fans broke on Tuesday night when they saw the Jazz logo pulled out and placed in the fifth spot in the NBA Draft Lottery. Gone are the hopes of drafting franchise changing players Andrew Wiggins, Joel Embiid, Jabari Parker and even Dante Exum.
All is not lost though. There will be plenty of extremely talented young players on the board when the Jazz make their selection. As in years past, there is sure to be a gem or two there for the taking if the Utah brass make the right choice.
If fans don't believe that, all they have to do is look at the players drafted with the fifth pick over the last few decades. The list is so deep that an all-star didn't even make the top 25.
