    YOu can blame slaon for CJ's slow development.

    When you have a coach that diess NOT intill any confidence in you in shooting the ball,

    and in fact discourages it,

    your offense is going come slow.

    But hen again in 23 years sloan has NEVER developed an outstanding star SG, or SF.

    no wonder they have never won a championship.

    they had get an old broken done one, hornacek, before they even had chance to even play for championship,

    and even then they NEVER ran any plays for him,

    he had to wait around as the 3rd or fourth option in the offense.

    if you try claim bryon russel is great, you are off your rocker,

    and ak's best years were at power forward.

    YEP, no 2 and 3, no championship.

    So...are you saying that cj didn't score 19 in about 150 games the last two seasons?

    CJ has only scored 19 points 14 times? Are you sure?

    Agree with B Russ. Miles has an all-around game now. He's looking to contribute in every way on the floor now.

    Check this: The Jazz are 13-1 over the last 2 seasons when CJ scores 19 or more points, the lone loss coming in the playoffs to LA last spring.

    After 6 years.....it's nice to see some development in cj! I hope it will continue and become a more regular thing. He is a very talented athlete. I have noticed his game is better this year. I like it when he is taking it to the hole and/or dishing it off.....not just jacking up 3's. But when the ol' Lefty is feeling it....he can jack a few up...as long as they are dropping. Get some dunks first though.

    C J Miles has truly come of age. His all around game is coming along very nicely. He is helping us win games. I thought he looked just as good as Rudy Gay out there last night. I'm sure glad we matched his offer from OKC. His contract seems like a bargain now.

    cj took us a few MILES tonight..........Raj also had his best offensive night of the season.....D Wil was not too shabby......AK looked really active but he couldn't get a call........Elson is a stud!
