Looks like everything is a question with every pick Kevin O'Conner takes except
for Paul Milsap who has done quite well. Deron Williams is gone. Looks like
another pick wasted on a big man Dufus Festertag. I know this angers Jazz fans
now but wait a few months and you will agree. We could have had a better pick. I
am a Jazz fan. I am tired of seeing my team getting ruined. Fire O'Conner.
He should go play with his national team, I'm very curious to see if he's any
good, I still don't know whether I should be excited or disappointed with this
pick.Right now Kanter is the unicorn of big men, I think a lot of
people aren't even sure if he's real.
I posted somewnere else that I would love to see the Jazz exercise the option on
Miles and then package him with Millsap in a trade to GS for Monta Ellis. GS is
looking for deals to move Ellis and I think this would be attractive to them.
@joe5that's the only thing that worries me...how do you get 5 guys
to play 25-30 mins...i think...1 or 2 of them...would play the 3....Al Jeff/Kanter/OkurFavors/Kanter/MillsapMillsap/AK47(if
signed)/CJHayward/Burks/Bell/CJHarris/Watson(if signed)/BurksI wonder how will big Al take it...if becomes second fiddle to
Kanter...starting Kanter - Favors...would be good defensively and
offensively...Trade Al Jeff? for who? and to which team? is Burks the PG of the
Future?...having size and athleticism on the position...is definitely an
advantage...if he learns to post up...he could post em up on the
baseline...since he will have a huge advantage over his opponents...if Burks is
the PG...are we trading Big Al or Millsap for a wing? or are we going to draft
that wing next year?...a lot of positive possibilities...and i think we are 2 to
3 pieces left...to contend
@sgs: How do you carve up 96 minutes among four players (five if Okur can play)
who all deserve significant playing time? As their coach, how do you keep them
A really good guy. We need a tough big center. No reason to trade anybody,
especially on the front line. We need everyone.
His body fat says volumes about him. When was the last time one of the bigs
showed up to Fall camp with 5% body fat (Evans does not count because he is
skinny)?Enes will work hard and he has enough natural talent and
skill that the hard work will be magnified much more than for a less talented
player. He will push Favors and that is good. He is also going to push Millsap
and especially AJ who will now make the changes he has needed to make for 6
years.BPA has some on court advantages. If the Jazz are patient they
will get a good trade out of this and fill a need with a much better player than
they could have drafted.
Yeah those who have doubts about Kanter should watch the Nike Hoops Summit
highlights. In that, he's versing the very best players in high school/college
at the time: Next year's #1 pick, Jared Sullinger, Perry Jones, Barnes, and
more.They're all the same age as him...he might have even been younger
I like his attitude too, if he is willing to work hard and stays focused on
improving every yr , he will be very good, he is only 19, he should improve
every yr for a while and who knows how good he will end up. He already shows he
has skills inside and outside, he runs the floor well, he rebounds well, I know
he is young and inexperienced , so we will have to be patient, but I love the
possibilities. Another thing I like is, being a foriegner he has a better chance
of being satisfied to stay in Utah.
I love that Enes is very powerful and graceful at the same time....he runs the
floor like a gazelle and he seems to have great range! If he improves his
defense, which I think he's capable of doing, then I think he'll end up being
the best player from this draft and a potential all-star, considering how rare
good centers truly are. Hopefully he doesn't get the Oden-disease and has the
durability of Big Al and Milsap. Out of all of those things, there is one thing
I really love about Kanter the most. His attitude. He seems like a genuine good
person and a very humble guy. He seems like a guy who doesn't care where he
plays in the NBA, he just wants to play. Cannot wait to see him take
If he can consistenly get 17 pts 10 rebs...Jazz should be good
Welcome to Utah Enes!
Can't wait to see Enes take the floor. After watching the nike hoop summit I
think he will be dominating down low. If he gets as aggressive on defense as he
is on offense I think he will become an outstanding defensive player also.Someone needs to tell him that we are in MMA country in utah though,
there is no acting.
