He is the heart and soul of this team and should be named Captain. I really
don't care if he starts, or continues to do amazing work off of the bench--he
has more Utah Jazz in him than any player we've had out there in years. And
that's not a knock on the other players. But when some of them finally attain
his sense of pride and toughness, there will be no stopping these guys. Go Jazz!
Rip the Raptors to shreds!
It's rare that I choose to adopt a player into my fandom from an individual
standpoint. I love the bulldog philosopher and did last year when he had yet to
find himself succeeding on the court for Utah.I have long watched
Earl, his style, his attitude, his toughness, his team first perspective, and
his belief system. Watson is a rock solid man. Defending the 19 year
old Favors by going after Dirk displays another example of team loyalty.Finishing in the tall timbers with body contact is vintage grit.Watson's quotes are byproducts of John Wooden's influence on Watson. The tough guy is the bulldog. The wise veteran who practices what he
preaches is the sincere philosopher.I hope Watson can be solid for
years to come, and be that way in our community.
There will never be enough minutes for everybody, and I agree that Favors,
Millsap, Hayward and Kanter are the future of the front-line of the team. I also
like Watson coming in as a spark off the bench. I honestly think he is more
effective that way. I also feel he should average 28 minutes + per game. Coming
in mid-way through the first and third quarters and finishing out the half and
the game would match him up against the opponents 2nd string PG for a stretch
and maintain continuity for the end of the game.
Sportsfan, did you watch any games at all last year? While Evans didn't take
many jump shots he hit most that he took in the 15 foot range, he can hit that
shot. Also there are certain players in the NBA he could match up with at the
small forward spot.
@shaybo... Evans is fun to watch but he should not play more. He is on our team
in case Jefferson, Millsap, Favors or Kanter get hurt... Until that happens, the
other guys need the minutes because they are the team's future, not Evans. Dude
can't hit a jump shot to save his life. The alley oop is the only thing he can
Evans needs to come in with Watson in the 1st quarter, nothing gets the crowd
going like those alley oop dunks. Actually Evans needs to be playing more
I love Earl's love of the game and his respect for his teammate's. I really wish
the Jazz would put him as the main point guard and maybe start him. I know the
Jazz have faith in Harris but He needs to get his head together and until then
let Earl be the main man. I also say to the CJ haters look at his states and how
consistent he has been.
