    This is great news for the Jazz organization. Although I wish him well, O'Conner had a view of the NBA that is outdated and does not fit well with the changes the NBA is going through both now and in the future. Recent acquisitions will not help the Jazz meet the needs of the future. A new GM hopefully will help the Jazz develop future talent that will be competitive with the rest of the NBA. I applaud the Jazz for hopefully looking toward the future.

    This is the worst news I have heard in a long time. The man is a genius, the Billy Bean of the NBA, and he never received enough appreciation for it. I can only hope his successor has half the talent as O'Connor.

    IMO, I hope he less say over personnel, this would be a plus for the Utah Jazz.

    I hope that KOC continues to have at least equal input with the rest of the Jazz management team regarding the assessment of talent. I've understood most of his decisions over the years and I've liked most of them, too.
