I think the Jazz will turn out to be closer to #30 than to #20 no matter what you say. They have to many problems to jell right away and by the time they do, it will be to late in a 66 game season.

Portland Trail Blazers
Sandy, UT

HAHA, agree Morgan Duel!

I was right! hahahaha

Here are some things the D News and I see eye to eye on: haha

Jazz fighting for last place in the west...

No playoffs for the Jazz...

Timberwolves AHEAD of the Jazz...

Portland IN the playoffs...

Thunder winning the division...

Jazz are becoming irrelevant...

etc, etc, etc...... hahahahaha

Let's let them play the season and see how things go. Things tend to shake out differently than expected. Who knows Portland Trail Blazers, maybe you'll be eating crow at the end of the season.

I'd really like to see this bunch of spoiled brats playing for no more than $75,000 a year which is about double what they could average in a real job.
Go Utah, BYU & Weber. Pro sports is not sport, It's has nothing to do with sport, it's just another business to pick your pocket.
