A couple of reasons that still make me optimistic about Marvin Williams. Any player who works hard can contribute and be successful in the Jazz system. He may have been smothered by Josh Smith, Crawford, J. Johnson and others to really show his stuff.

If he can work hard and hussel than I think being on the Jazz is his best opportunity to re-amp his career.

I suppose Marvin Williams would be excited about playing with the Jazz. After all, we revived the career of a player that was going nowhere with Atlanta, nor with any other NBA team. It's interesting that a team who decided to go build up their franchise with young, athletic players, the Oklahoma Thunder, were in the NBA finals this year. They ended up getting Perry Jones III in the draft this year. The Jazz, on the other hand, have gone the route of spending our money on the off-season with older players that haven't nearly the athletic ability of the Thunder and are at the twilight of their career. I imagine that our future will be as predictable and opposite of the future of the Thunder.

This acquistion is just another breath of fresh air! Will our Jazz be NBA champs soon? I doubt it, but they will be a fun, competitive team nightly for fans to enjoy, and have the kind of character the majority of Utahns want here. After all of this greedy player and owner collusion thats been going on now for several years it is "just" refreshing to be represented by class young men and an organization that has some integrity! Good luck Jazz, just give us 100% effort and we as fans will do the same.

Twenty-six years old and in the "twilight" of his career. What are you...10? Looking forward to an awesome year. Go Jazz.

Williams is a plus over Howard, could be a big plus. I don't think he wants to be in Utah. Question is will he work hard to get out of Utah or sulk so he can get out. Time will tell.

He said all of the right things during the interview, now let's see what he can do on the court.
