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!
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
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
CJ Miles will be known as "The Stander" as in always "standing around"
Miles is a waste! Boozer is really Stinky! Milsap is a STUD PLOW HORSE!
Williams is better than Kris Pol. We Need:WilliamsMilsapKosta K.OkurMaybe BrewerMaybe PriceKorver 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.
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
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!!!!!!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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
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
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.Miles ft.% .821Korver ft.% .833
As fans, we expect Miles to be a slacker but we don't expect it from Brewer. If
the two of you simply want to be scorers, ask for a trade to Golden State. You
don't have to play defense on those teams. Buck up and play some defense so you
can get back on the court.
Evrybody is making good points about CJ, and I think both sides of this are
probably right.Miles is right when he says the Jazz are going to
need CJ to play 20+ minutes if they really want to be a great team, especially
in the playoffs.Everybody else is right that CJ has to pick it up
and earn those minutes, and the $3.7 mil the Jazz are paying him, by getting
after it defensively and sticking his nose in the paint and grabbing some boards
once in a while.CJ is a great athlete with great skills but he is
only a decent player right now. If he will just start bringing it every night I
think he will have an oportunity to be a hero more than once this year.
Obsession with KK? Re-read my post. I said he was a 90% free throw shooter.
That's it. How is that obsesive? This is the first time I have EVER made a
comment about Korver, and the first time I've knocked on Miles. How
can anyone disagree with me and say that CJ is playing with heart? That would
be an out right lie. My main point in that post was that we have
more then a 2 fast player and 3 slow players. I then made a comment about CJ
not playing with heart. Doesn't sound like a KK love letter to me
No more draft picks on high school wonders PLEASE! Hopefully the NBA will get it
right and make it so players need to spend a minimum of 2 years in college
before being qualified for the draft. This is a mans game, not meant for those
just out of diapers.
CJ Miles is a fabulous athlete, but athleticism alone does not make a comlete
NBA Basketball player! He may improve and probably will, but he needs to grow
up and be a man, gosh daim'it, he's gettin paid 3 1/2 Million dollars a year.
Quit the Silly business CJ!
Get Rid of Boozer and try to sign a man with some of what Karl Malone & John
Stockton had and what Paul Milsap has!................. You Figure it out!
I think a lot of people are over-reacting about the perceived characters of
Miles and Brewer. Sloan knows his players on many different levels better than
we do as fans, who only see them in usually two venues - game time performance
and interviews. Sloan said so himself in this article that they had bad games.
Obviously, he is showing that he believes in their talent and capabilities by
still playing them. He is also using his tough love approach to make them earn
and keep what they are given. i wish Jazz fans would be more careful about our
criticism. I think it influences, to a degree, whether players decide to stay
with the jazz after their contract ends. Please show better support for your
team and its players.
I wonder if Boozer has ever heard of Tylenol Extra Strength? Pansy!
Let's get one thing straight for those who feared cj putting up numbers and
hurting the jazz if he would have left. He was going to okc, the thunder,
anyone can put up numbers on that team!!! If that was the biggest choice greg
miller had to make about matching the contract, I'm worried about the future
decisions he'll make. Cj was going to a lousy team, we should have let him go.
He doesn't play within the offense and he takes no pride in his game. I'll be
willing to bet the loss of almond will hurt the jazz more. Brewer is slacking a
little, the bench might wake him up a little.
I don't think alot of people are over reacting about the percieved characters of
Miles and Brewer. I believe the majority of the negative posts are from the same
guy.Go Jazz Team !
Korver is over 90% for his career from the FT line. For the last couple of
years, he has been over 91%. He has been playing with a wrist injury for most
of the year (strange... when a player actually plays, instead of sitting their
butt on the side, game after game, after game... some forget that playing with
an injury (especially a wrist injury to the shooting hand of a shooting guard)
may effect play some), and injury that still isn't fully healed. Right after he
sprained the wrist, he missed a handful of free throws, and with it being early
in the season, it killed his FT% for this year. Since then, he's made them all,
his stroke is back, and the FT% is working it's way back up... people who PAY
ATTENTION, and don't just check out the latest stats, know that Korver is still
the go to guy for clutch free throws.Oh, while I'm not the person
accused of having a Korver fettish, or the person the one who did the accusing.
The only fettish here seems to be from whoever posts as 'miles'.
If cj learns what selfless service means, he'll be good; i agree, i don't think
he gets it, that the great ones are there for others, the great ones are the
first ones to dive for a ball, run back on d, set the pick, pass, whatever it
takes; the great ones all know that they are great because they are there to
serve their teammates; with that, comes the added responsibility and then
becoming the man, it doesn't happen in one game, it doesn't happen in one
season; it takes a consisten approach until becoming the man has completed
itself. the first priority of the great ones, is always, to be the first to
serve the others. being the man isn't sitting on your throne having the
adoration of everyone thrown at you, because you decided the port a potty you
call your ego is a house of gold, although, it seems like your the man to
yourself, that man is not the man in reality; the man in reality is the first
one to serve others; that's the man who has the most, i think dwill gets it.
Will Jerry Sloan get a brain and for once play the 5 best players on the floor
instead of playing mediocre players because they are veterans. Yes I am talking
of course about Matt Harpring and CJ Miles. What do these two players bring to
the court that AK or Korver don't. It's absolutely dumbfounding to watch Matt
(can't hit the broad-side of a barn) Harpring play out there. CJ's not much
better. Korver and Brewer are much better than CJ. What is Sloan thinking?
Yes two athletes (dwill and sap) and three slow players (memo, koufus and
korver). That's what he wants on the floor to win his 20 games. If any of you
think we can win a championship with Korver and Harpring getting lots of
minutes, good luck. Koufus is not taking us anywhere at the moment and we won't
win a championship with only dwill and millsap. Without cj and brewer, no
chance in the playoffs.
You guys think Kyle Korver is the best thing that has ever happend to the Jazz.
He really isn't that good. Sure he has a good shot, but he has no defense. The
Jazz have plenty of offense, so he needs to work harder on defense so he can be
an all around player. And I think that C.J. just needs some more NBA experience.
He's only 21 years old and I think he could tun out to be a really good player.
