15 tie. Raul Lopez: Next » 1 of 16 « Prev
Lopez only spent two seasons with the Jazz before being traded and heading back to Europe to finish out his career, but his rookie season was by far his best. Lopez played all 82 games in 2003-04, including 11 as a starter, and averaged seven points, 1.9 rebounds and 3.7 assists a game while shooting 86.3 percent from the free-throw line. The best game of his first year came in the last game of the year when Lopez registered 25 points, five assists and two steals.

The Golden Griff had the prettiest jumpshot I've ever seen. Great dunks too!

New #1 on this list after next season... Jabari Parker! At least that is what I hope. But it is not likely the Jazz get him, and even if they do there is no guarantee of where he would end up on this list. But you can't blame me for dreaming.

@samwise You can hope all you want with no blame. The problem is the Jazz management have the same strategy. "Hope we get better" and as we all know HOPE is NOT a strategy.
