Miles & Brewer

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

Please Jazz

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.

Keith Suds.....

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!

Keith Suds.....

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!

Trent T

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!

In Tulsa

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.

Re:Trent T

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'.

selfless service

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.

whats going on....

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.
