Paul George would look good in our line up right now. I love Hayward, but I wonder if we made the right move here. Of course if George was playing for the Jazz he wouldn't be an all star right now. Not too many teams get the shaft more than the Jazz. Watching ESPN and others we are the least talked about playoff team out of the lot. In fact many non playoff teams get more pub than the Jazz. The favoritism in this league is ridiculous and it starts with the referees.

CTJ, you're right that Paul George wouldn't make the All-Star team this year had we drafted him, but it's because he wouldn't be getting the minutes. Marvin Williams and Randy Foye would still be siphoning off 52 minutes a game because the vets play over the young guys no matter what. Who knows? Maybe Gordon would have had a shot at the team this year if we gave him the opportunity, but opportunities aren't what the Jazz stand for these days. They just do the safest possible thing and hope that fans keep buying tickets.

I agree with you Elliott....i think...the opportunities Paul George has...is better than Hayward...and there wasnt a deron williams who would bully him with a bullet pass on the court...and a so-called coach who is more inclined to playing overrated vets rather than develop young talent...If the Jazz committed to Hayward, Favors, Kanter and Burks...we would have a foundation already for the future...and who knows they could have a strong chemistry that builds by playing off each other...that would have been the better choice...
