Finally! Sloan will be forced to find out which PG is D-Will's backup. All contenders (healthy ones) should get enough game time to sort it out.

Depending on how long D-Will is out (into the real season), Sloan might devise a way to play without a true PG a lot of the game, just to keep the best players on the floor long enough to win.

As bad as this is, it does have a silver lining, IF Sloan takes advantage of it by thinking long term and not worrying about winning EVERY game early in the season. Don't know if that's in him, though.

Umm


I would not want to talk to reporters either. Who ever really wants to talk to you anyway. You will twist things around to be negitive.

Why do you try and piss off the number one player on our team with this stupid story. He shouldnt comment until he knows exactly what is wrong, false hope or false worry can be avoided this way. BTW reporters started all the crap about Boozer opting out of his contract. Do you not ever ask for a raise? This is how NBA players ask for theirs.

Best of luck with your ankle Dwill.

The mentor JSLO is worried about getting DWILL
back playing. Come on J SLO no one was thinking that
farm boy. Looks like a bad sprain 2 to 3 weeks my guess.

REL Jimmy

Of course he's worried. Wow, yes, bad sprains take a few weeks.

I think I'll call you Captain Obvious

The Jazz players should show more rescpect for the beat writers. After all, they are BEAT writers. That is a very important job. You have to go to school for like 4 years to get a job like that. They work SOOO hard. They have to fly in air planes. I feel sorry for these REAL American heros. They sacrifice so much for us.

oh gosh they have to fly in airplanes? thats terrible!

Recover Soon D-Will

We hope you recover quickly and to full capacity D-Will! We need you and wish you the best!

Now is the time for my buddy CJ to step up and show Sloan he is the man!!! Sloan needs to start CJ at point and stop wasting time with Knight and Price.

It is too bad that the x-rays were negative.

I saw the game, and the play when Dwill hurt his ankle.....and it reminded me of a trick Isiah Thomas used to play...when guarding, Thomas would shift feet under the jump shooter to distract shooter, break rhythm as the shooter would change body to avoid the defender's feet. Yeah....it look possibly, as Rose (another chicago product like thomas) may have doen that.

The possibly silver lining..Sloan's teams are always well prepared, and inserting Price, a very good backup, into the starting lineup, could help the Jazz steal games, while other teams attempt to find their game. And, Dwill can use some rest after a hectic summer.

BTW..Andrei looks great as a 6th man..he is passing, shooting, playing good defense...it may be a very good yr for the Jazz.

Well, D-Rose has already collecting some success it seems. This effort by Williams to put Rose "in due rookie place" came from the game before when Rose clearly didn't back-off from the PG show Williams tried to put on him. Competitiveness excess can be tricky sometimes.
Anyway Williams will be fine, even if it took him a month or so.
And the Jazz will be fine too IF Boozer just start to take a little care of the basketball.-

I hope you get over your ankle injury speedy quick, and at 100%. Make sure you are ready to come back to avoid reinjury..... I have you on 2 fantasy teams and am a fan as well so good luck and get well soon....

I will now forever not like Derek Rose.

cheap shot

Derek Rose had no chance at blocking that shot and it was a planned cheap shot. The league needs to look at the tape closely.

As far as the media goes. Who cares. The media is all about attention. If no attention is given to media talk, then nothing happens. The media thrives on stuff like this.

Media, if you want to get an interview, go interview the cheap shot artist.

Derek Rose: HATER

Getting schooled by the best must be no fun for an immature rookie. I've seen players do this on purpose (for example Bruce Bowen on Vince Carter), the truth is Rose knew who he was up against and this is the only way for him not to look ridiculous. Derek Rose is a hater and a coward.

definitely not

rose is a stand up guy and isn't about that... he only talks with his performance on the court... and if u remember correctly, deron williams took time to adapt, and rose is at a higher learning curve already
