Bad pick, now I don't have to worry about season tickets, I can purchase that shotgun I've always wanted!


Fedor thanks. I do not feel Gordon" will be a bust" either. HOWEVER!! I am sick of people saying, "Oh the Jazz did the best they could do because of the pick they had, the city they are in, no free agents want to come here, blah blah blah".

The Jazz did not need Gordon

The Jazz needed a defensive oriented, shot blocker, one on defender in the post or at forward with some low post capabilities offensively.

Ok City I feel had a much better draft for the 2 picks they have.,

Hayward allegedly has improved his shooting and has lit it up in camp, all star games and workouts.

He to me is a mid 1st round pick at best

We are awarre of Butler accomplishments, we are not under a rock.

That Big East Player defensive player of the year in the 2nd round a big guy the Jazz need more

You cannot "outscore" everyone"

This draft will not excite or entice Carlos Boozer to ever stay here, where a good big man might have, though we will never know.

He is a good player

However, not priority over other holes


Okafor type player helps us more to get closer to the lakers than our draft pick will who gets to sit and watch all year.


Reading about the reaction of the Jazz fans and most of the reader's comments, my negative opinion of sports fans and most athletes is reinforced. Whatever the age, whether a participant or a fan, sports brings out the worst in people.

Not Asleep

My understanding is that Indianapolis was going to pick Hayward if we didn't and OKC was going to pick him if Indiana didn't. Seems like KOC did the right thing.

Not Asleep

I heard it on sports radio so it's got to be true.
