    I am not a Fesenko fan at all. So the Jazz are suppose to be playing him all these minutes but I wonder how they would manage that with all the Stomach viruses and headaches and whatever else that always seems to cause him to miss so much time. I really really really really don't understand the obsession. This guys good games to bad games ratio makes CJ Miles look like Kobe Bryant.

    I understand that you can't teach "big" in basketball, but just because somebody is "BIG" that doesn't mean they can be taught basketball. Forget basketball this guy can't even take care of his body. Cut him loose Jazz this guy will never put in the work to get better.

    Interesting hearing the different perspectives about coming back. CJ, AK, Ronnie, etc all want to and it sounds like Fes doesnt want to at all... I'd love to have him back, especially with Memo's status still up in the air. But he might be sick of not getting time.. I would be

    And we complain about the CEO of a multi-billion dollar company getting paid $8 mil per year.

    I do think the last coule weeks brought the team closer, let them know there is some hope when they play hard together. The Lakers & Hornets were trying to win those games, good wins. Obv, the players pretty much said what you'd expect, but it is encouraging that they've already planned the Cali workouts and that Al will live here full-time.

    Agreed, Evans needs to work on his game & conditioning, the weight will only come with age.

    I think the Jazz need to bring back Fes, baggage and all. A freed Corbin and whoever the 3rd asst coach is will be fresh voices to him. His number should be reasonable unless Portland dumps Oden and goes crazy, or Prokhorov likes him. I think he prefers to stay.

    And the Jazz need his size. When he's right, he makes a huge difference. There's nothing close in the draft or as a free agent. Amazing Sloan cared about stuff like smiling in the locker room rather than the Lakers having 4-5" inches of height on us in the frontcourt.

    I wish Memo & Bell would retire, but obv nobody forced the Jazz to sign them.

    Well compared to the multi-millionair counterfeit role models, I will be working 8 to 4 each day trying to stay ahead of the rising costs of living...if anyone is interested?

    Where is CJ going to work out in a bar hoisting heavy beer mugs? He looked pretty hungover for the last couple of months of the season. Party time does catch up even when you are young. I hope someday he can get it together just not with the Jazz.

    Love the quote CJ Miles

    As for Jeremy Evans, I'd rather see him develop a jump shot than put on weight. Thurl Bailey was just as skinny as him (but 2 inches taller.)

    I think his focus should be on learning to score outside of just dunking it. If we could get him posting up or coming off screens and hitting jump shots... that would be great.

    I'm okay with him being skinny.
