WOW! it happened just like I said it would, yesterday, before the draft.Who would of thought it?While drafting at 20 and 50
the jazz are not going get anyone who will help them win a championship,maybe help their bench,You have to get really lucky or have
management that can actually evaluate talent.
Everyone has the potential to be tougher than Okur.
If you don't like the pick, rememeber we had a bad round. There wasn't much left
after 20. The jazz should have been focusing on trades last season. Now they
can't do much because of everyones contract expiring. The jazz may end up a very
young and inexperienced team real soon. Sorry D-will, good luck. I know you'll
need it to run this team by yourself.
Suton is a good pick. He really has the potentially to be a tougher Okur. Maynor is a good player, but does anyone remember what was wrong with
our team last year? We weren't tough. We should have drafted Sam young or Dejuan
Blair. Both players are tough as nails and play hard. Each could have made an
impact on our team next year.Bottom line is the Jazz picked a very
good player, but one that we don't need. I think this either means we are
planning on letting Price go or we are planning on adding Maynor in on a trade
because he is a good young guard that isn't expensive. If we don't trade Maynor
this was a huge mistake because we needed Young or Blair.
the jazz should have traded up when Blair and Young fell to the second round and
drafted one of them. Suton is not doing to make it in the league. Jazz brass
again to stupid to do anything.
or Ty Lawson and they were picked ahead of him. Dick Vitale said Minnesota was
crazy not to take Stephen Curry. He thought Minnesota's coach will get fired
because they missed an opportunity. I did like Rubio at #5 for an up tempo
team. The Jazz may have wanted Jeff Teague more but they did well with what
they had. I was disappointed that they didn't try to trade up in the second
round for DeJuan Blair or Xavier's Derrick Brown. The guy from Michigan State
is a poor man's Hansborough. I am disappointed guys we wanted like Hansborough
didn't slide but we did the best we could with the cards we were dealt. I'll
give Minnesota a C; an A for Rubio and a D- for Flynn (has a great verticle but
undersized) and the Jazz a B.
Guys - remember we are picking at #20, your not going to find players that are
going to start at this spot, let alone last long in the NBA. The Jazz will be
able to get much better 2's, 3's, and 4's via free agency.Missed OP
- Shooting guards picked after 20 have less of a chance staying in the NBA than
Shaq making a free throw left handed. Our good friend Morris Almond had a much
better chance than Wayne E. The Jazz operate w/3 PGs, we just wish Psycho T
would have slipped to us.
of course the jazz picks arent the best...thats what you get when you have the
20 and 50 picks! they arent going to get an incredible center (there
hardly were any) and those that were good were gone anyways!they
need another pg anyways...and odds are a 20 pick isnt going to replace boozer or
millsap anyways.quit complaining...they got the best available but
like sloan (i think it was sloan) having a low pick in the draft is a good thing
because that means they are successful! there arent many times when a 20 or a 50
pick will change the scope of a team
my bad, I meant Maynor "is not that good defensively"So how is the
interior defense improved?is a 6'3 guy going to make an impact Dwil
is no taller? Does this solve ability to go up vs the Bird Andersons, Lamar
Odoms, Trevor Ariza and Andy Bynums of the world.If Dwil averages 36
minutes or so-38you guys are worried about the 10 he does not
play?Yeah Knight hurt us. Price could maintain the game more
effectively like Eisley used to do. Price is enough upgrade over Knight to get
by 10 minutes-12 per game, it is about the front court and off guard
If the Jazz needed anything they needed a 2....and the god's open the window for
us and the Jaz select Maynor? O'Connor? Why not Wayne Ellington!!!
He is better than Brewer will ever hope to be! Ellington will be an NBA All
Star one day..You missed it Jazz!
Maynor's a good pick; true PG with a shot. Williams needed a true PG backup.
We've been playing horrible PG backup minutes for some seasons now. And we don't
know if we will be resigning Price; I hope we do, but we just dont know what
will happen. Good pick. Great value at 20.
Now we have FOUR centers. Suton should be prepared to spend next year in the D
measurements of Maynor (Draft Express) compared to the other top PG he compares
pretty well. He is more agile and faster than many of the PGs selected before
him. His basic stats are pretty good but his conf is weaker than many of the
well known PG names. Utah did okay. They might have been aggressive
like HOU and bought a couple of players they really wanted but I guess they are
satisfied with what they got instead of spending a lot of cash for other
players.At least they got a couple of players for cheap to round out
the minimum roster. It will be interesting to see if any of the opt
outs do. This is not a good market for Free Agents. It is a buyers (owners)
Defense?Maynor is about as good of PG as was available at the 20. At
least he is experienced and a true point. He is supposed to be very basketball
smart and a decent shot. He may needs a couple of years to develop a rim game.
He is pretty slight but so was Stockton.
at 44%. He is the best 3 point shooter among centers.The guy got 10
shots a game and averaged 10 points on a big 10 team. This guy may be okay in a
couple of years. He can stretch an offense. He will need some work and some
I disagree. I think Korver and Booz are gone, both by their own preference.
I wasn't thrilled at first but am warming up to the Maynor pick. You can't
tell me you weren't throwing a remote at the tv any time Knight took a shot.
This kid seems like he can score much better and is a good passer. He HAS to be
better than Brevin.Goran is a good pick, I think. We need help inside,
and he's not one of those worthless bigs that's all height and nothing else. He
has a few moves and a decent outside jumper.We'll see how it
Hansbrough in the long run. I like this pick. SA just got McClintock and NO got
Thorton in a trade. I like the Suton pick. The guy is well coached,
can shoot, face the basket and rebound. He will do okay.
I think that the jazz brass are looking ahead on Maynor. Boozer, Okur and Korver
are not going anywhere. They realize that there will not be the market for a pay
raise and will stay with the jazz. This pick allows for them to match offers on
Millsap and still be under the salary cap. The other unrestricted free agents
are not going to be signed again. The jazz needed a true point guard to play 6
to 8 minutes a game. Price brought a lot of energy and could have a chance to
stay but will have to sign for a lot less than he wants to.
Maynor will be cheaper to sign than price. I think it was all about the money.
did not go for Blair, Young, Gibson or another Big. They may get one in the 2nd
by he will probably be an obscure name.
Why go with another small point guard who is a poor defender? I just don't get
to back up now. Not a high profile but steady true point. I think Price is
gone. The Jazz might get an older PG for insurance.The Jazz are more
likely to sign their bigs. All of the trades are drying up the options for opt
outs. Money is a big factor this year. The Suns are a waste land.
The Jazz may make the playoffs by default.
stupid pick, that's what we got ronnie price for.. whose gonna replace boozer?
Millsap is good but we need a scorer to help out d will.. another dumb pick for
would have taken Sam Young instead
Tyreke Evans The NBA is like life. Not everyone can play for the Celtics or
Lakers. Some must play for the Jazz or the Kings.
