Wow. Tony Parker fakes doubling down. I've only seen him do
that....let's see....yes, everytime the Spurs played the Jazz this year.
Are we seriously this unprepared to play the Spurs?Maybe Saturday
night, the Jazz will try to walk the walk. None of us expect to defeat the
Spurs in this series, and after watching the first two games, maybe none of us
think the Jazz will win a single game in this series. But if we're going
to talk like we're preparing for a more aggressive, physicial playoff game,
let's walk the walk.We're here to learn, but we
haven't learned too much yet, other than we're young, inexperienced,
and unprepared. And to think, we haven't seen the Spurs at their best yet.
STEP IT UP, UTAH!!
I hesitated to make a comment on the Jazz loss, but it has become all too
apparent what we really have facing us. The Spurs are already dusting off their
brooms and likely will not have to play another game in San Antonio in this
series. Not only is it likely the Jazz will get swept, but the loss of two
lottery picks in the off-season will make this year particularly bitter. It
should be all too apparent to the Jazz management that the older players will
never bring us in a competitive position to play with the elite teams in the
NBA. The only hope we have to be competitive in the future is to get rid of all
the old contracts and draft younger athletic players that can learn to play with
each other. Our future needs to be nurtured now, and to simply be content to
barely make the playoffs will only foster a very weak and non-competitive team
that will be left with a lot of bad contracts and no future.
