I might have been born in the dark but I wasn't born yesterday! Like a divorce it end emotionally before it ends on paper. Hence, Take the money and run Boozer is gone. Whether you like it or not.


Great win. Just a little curious as to why Sloan left Korver in the game with 2.5 seconds left in regulation as a defensive stopper instead of re-inserting Brewer. Was afraid that it would ultimately come back and haunt the Jazz, but thank goodness it didn't. Just can't figure Sloan out at times not making situational adjustments. Anywayyyy, watch out Bulls!

Ronnie B,great way

to fight back,great win,I think Korver`s penchant for the big shot is why he was in,other than that,oh,and free throws,Ronnie should be in there,and "miles"....no heart

Ol' Green Bone

Korver took a big charge, got some big rebounds and hit a big three (good shot selection within the offense), while CJ was licking his Lolipop on the bench! You can't think with your HOPS or your loliPOPS! This game is played correctly by using the tool that is inside of your head.


Although I agree with you, on the replay you can see that Korver was picked off by a moving screen and was held but still faought thru to try to disrupt the shot. If Brewer or CJ would play with that kind of heart I would bet they would have been in there at the end of regulation. Great fight, great win GO JAZZ

From now on....

CJ Miles will be known as "The Stander" as in always "standing around"

Old Stink Fing

Miles is a waste! Boozer is really Stinky! Milsap is a STUD PLOW HORSE! Williams is better than Kris Pol.
We Need:
Kosta K.
Maybe Brewer
Maybe Price
Korver is OK too.
AK 47 has some great skills (but boneheaded passes t times)


Old Stink Fing: Good luck winning with your lineup. Two athletes and a bunch of slow players. That should get us 20 wins a year. Korver makes one 3 and you all think he is the second coming of Jordan. Put Korver's numbers up against CJ's numbers and not even a discussion. CJ is so much better. We won't go anywhere in the playoffs without Brewer and CJ getting lots of minutes.

Re :The stander

have to agree,miles is an expert at standing around and watching instead of moving without the ball,he needs to watch film of Matt Harpring when he was a bit younger

Who's is this guy?

That's always on here using different screen names that really has it in for C.J. Miles. It really sounds personal, Maybe C.J. ran over his dog or something like that.

Great win for the Jazz. The guys stepped up really good for a hard fought win. Memo, Paul, Deron, Kyle, Ronnie, Ronnie, Kosta, Matt, Andre, Brevin, C.J. too,(3-5, plus great defense in limited minutes) all contributed. D-Will is back!!!!!! Go Jazz!!!!!!

inside news...

Betcha Boozer has a bone chip on his knee...you heard it here first!


CJ SULKER Miles. We win and CJ SULKS! Give him a sucker so he don't cry!

Basketball coaches

often position shooters on the perimeter to open up the middle and pressure zone defenses to come out and guard the perimeter. Let Jerry coach the Jazz and C.J. I think he's knows what he's doing. Then post at the end of the season and let us know what you have learned.

Re: Miles

Only 2 athletes and 3 slow player? You've got to be kidding me. D-Will may not be the fastest PG in the league, but he is still fast.

You should really let your Miles fetish go. I'll giv eyou he's got the talent and athletasism(sp), but the guys just doesn't hustle and has no heart.

That's why he doesn't play at the end. (That and Korver is a 90% free throw shooter. Something VERY valuable at the end of a game


Ceege and Ronnie should make a pact that they will throw their bodies on the floor at least three times every game.

It's Only A Matter Of Time

Sloan will keep playing(starting I guess) Miles, but I will bet anyone, anything they want to bet that Miles will eventually play himself of the floor just like others from the recent past. Humphreys, DeShawn Stevenson, the Nevada kid, ect. They were all athletes, but lacked fortitude and desire to excell at this level. C.J. the same thing, package him with Almond and Fess for an expiring contract and get on with what we need to do to compete.

Is CJ related to Darius ???

The "Miles bros,,,similar in talent,physically bout the same...Darius and Kobe are very similar all around,as is CJ,big difference is Kobe,and I hate Kobe,is going to win...regardless


I watched the game and did see a difference in CJ.He was focused on the whole battle and not just pulling the trigger.I love CJ and Brewer but they got to work on other parts of the game to stick around in the NBA.MJ was the greatest player, not shooter, he did it all and anything that was needed to win not just score.CJ and Brewer will be fine as long as they realize you have to outwork your opponent on and off the court.There's other young guys out there trying to play in the NBA too working harder than you (or are they? it's up to CJ and Brewer)


Korver came out in that New Jersey game and earned himself some playing time by running his butt off. Korver only got 7 minutes in Boston so when he got a change to play he took advantage of it. As a result he's now earning more minutes. Same thing with Ronnie Price.
Brewer has struggled since his Aunt's funeral and that's understandable but he will bounce back and eventually play more again.
CJ will continue to fall away and blame Sloan for his problems. I agree with The Incredible Sulk. If you saw the interview with CJ after the New Jersey game he was sulking and pouting because the reporter was asking him about losing his starting spot. Imagine what Miles will do when he DOES finally lose his starting job. A job that he never earned to begin with. He's gonna go into his shell again and end up on the bench with Fes! Brewer said he was just happy the Jazz were winning and you can just see the difference in attitude.


Your obvious obsession with K.K. is blinding you. K.K. can stand on his own 2 feet. He doesn't need you continually, obsessively, bashing C. J. Miles to help his popularity. He'll do fine without you.
