It's a sad day in Utah!

You're right if you hope is in professional sports--it's a circus, and should be viewed as cheap (expensive?) entertainment, and nothing more.

why is it a sad day? :)

The NIT

It's not a sad day - as a continuous 31 year season ticket holder - I like Hayward - I think he is a winner and we'll be glad he's on the Jazz.

I think Hayward is going to surprize alot of people, he kind of reminds me of a young do it all Larry Bird!!!

You all are so clueless and brainwashed by O Connor and the "sloanaholics"

Hayward like Bird?

As long as we have Jerry Sloan (and I hope that is for a long time) we ought be glad to have a lot of Gordon Haywards. We love the blue-collar, "roll up your sleaves and go to work" players. Our team is a "get in your face, out hussle, hard screen" sort of team. Jerry will never go for a primping prima donna who wants to pose for the cameras and indulge in self-absorbed narcissism (nor could SLC draw King James, Prince Wade, or the other courtside courtiers who would expect the spot light). I love Sloan ball!

Todd there is your laughing. It has been a couple of days since you laughed on the blog.

Snark, I love World Titles more

World titles are the goal, but in the world of small markets and glamour markets the Jazz are going to approach that lofty perch sooner by team work and hard work than by empty wishing for superstars who are not likely to come here and/or stay. We have seen (e.g. Stockton, Malone, Williams,etc...)that we are more likely to create superstars through Sloan-like hard work and toughness than to coax them from more lucrative markets.

Let the-primma donna's roam, show off, brag and whatever. I personnally like the product put on the floor by the Utah Jazz and will be more than satified if we field a team in the future without the Boozer types and others. I want to see players that play hard every night and that are not driven by money. Being a contender every year is not all bad fans! Dreaming is for the young disullsioned "now generation" type not me.

For the true Jazz fans out there, kudos to you for supporting YOUR team. For you who are 'saddened' by the choice of Gordon Hayward, YOU DON'T DESERVE HIM.

By the way, I went to school with Larry Bird. The comparisons are so true; team player, selfless, leader, MODEST. . . And remember, Bird was 22 when he went to the Celtics; Hayward is only 20.

Clearly, some of you out there in Utah don't understand basketball like those of us from Indiana.
