Love it! Earl brings back great B Ball IQ and not to mention the Early-Oop to
Like Earl, but would rather have Ronnie Price than Jamaal Tinsley.
Earl is the man !!!
I hope Devin Harris remain fit for the whole season and we don't need to play
Jamaal Tinsley !!!
Rip Hamilton is just being waived, the Jazz should use the amnesty clause on
Raja Bell and sign rip. He would give them the outside shooting they so
desperately need to open up the middle for the bigs! !!! Jazz Do this !!!!
This Jazz roster is shaping up to be representative of a middle to upper lower
eschelon collection of players. Earl Watson is a good journeyman player for the
team. I'm glad he is back. What I'm worried about is who is in front of him,
starting. I know defense in the league is overrated, but does the Jazz have any
position players that can match up or even play team defense against other
playoff bound teams? This worries me, if anyone seriously thinks this rendition
of the Jazz has any chance whatsoever of contending for a playoff berth.
I like this news and Earl, but I agree, I'd much rather get Ronnie Price than
Ronnie Price is better than Tinsley. I am glad Watson is back.
The day has been saved!Get rid of Tinsley and with this Watson
re-signing I will forgive you O'Conner. I never want to see Tinsley in a Jazz
uniform.Getting Watson was nothing short of essential because there
is absolutely nothing out there let alone anything better from a PG standpoint.
Earl is the man. He can be thrown in anywhere and will be steady and deliver
the goods.KOC might be earning some of his millions with that
signing. Then I read Keith McLeod has been invited to camp...come on is he
bringing Ostertag?Hope Ronnie finds a good home but glad it is not
with the Jazz. He is a poor shooter in a game and a worse passer. Not a good
equation for a pg.
Good move, Jazz. Welcome back, Earl. The Jazz are set for one year (until next
year's draft) at point guard if, and only if, the Jazz use Burks some there
backing up Watson. I think that as long as Burks and Hayward are on the court at
the same time, one of them can always get it up to the front court.
I really don't understand signing Tinsley. Maybe he was the only player the Jazz
brass could watch during the lockout and they got hooked (although his d-league
numbers are really bad). It's hard to believe that there isn't another free
agent PG who brings more to the table than Tinsley (personally I think Price is
one of them). Arenas was just amnestied by Washington which means we could get
him really cheap. Not sure if he's the best fit for the team, but he's gotta be
better than Tinsley.Any word on AK yet? It looks like he won't be a
Jazz man (sad) but I'd still like to know what happens to him. I still think he
would be a great addition for a couple million a year. He's had a great summer
@mulrichArenas??? Please no. I'd rather they play with 4 on the court
than sign Arenas.
Glad to see Earl back, but i'm sure this means the end of Price, even though we
all will miss the excitement Ronnie brought I think it's for the best, Tinsley
is a true point guard and a better shooter. I hope he Corbin keeps the Jerry's
no headband rule, it makes Tinsley look like a dork.
I love Ronnie Price and the energy he brings when out on the floor but it seems
like his pg skills hadn't developed like the Jazz hoped they would. If only he
were 4-5 inches taller he'd be a true 2 guard. Just a tweener imo. Too bad.
He's a Utah guy now. I believe he married a girl from Utah and makes Utah his
year round home now.
Nice sign, very necessary to proceed to have a solid vetern familar with our
system and players. Ronnie Price can't stay healthy... how many times did we
suffer an injury to dwill or Devin only for Price to get hurt a few games later?
Man I echo multiple comments made here. I am happy about Watson being back, but
Price is the far better choice over Tinsley.Watson and Price
together give me security in case Harris gets hurt. As back ups,
Watson is steady and Price is the energizer. Both are needed at different times.
when espn ranked 500 NBA players, i honestly expected Ronnie Price to be #500..
i really did.. he cannot shoot, he cannot pass, and he fouls more than any guard
in the nba (per 48 min).. look it up.There is no argument made for
keep Ronnie Price on this roster.. don't even try.
The Jazz need to try to get A.I. Andrew Idgudola. Energetic, explosive, good
defender. Pg's are the floor general, setting up plays and ball distribution.
Our front line this year is beastly.... All I can say is bring it on!
I love Earl & trust him 100%. No worries at all with him as the PG backup.
He's a great guy who can run the floor, loves it here and actually wants to
stay. Definitely a keeper.
