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? :)
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?Hee hee hee hee hee hee and more hee
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
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.
