    @B Russ

    i think he can be a capable defender...because of his athleticism...


    no one regrets Korver leaving...coz he was always a defense liability...the only thing going for him is his outside shooting...if given the chance to pick between Korver and Foye..i would take Foye because of what he can bring on the defensive side of the court and his athleticism...i would calmly take his shooting slumps...and give him a spot on the team...also i noticed is that...

    I wish the team decides to move on without Big Al, Paul Millsap and Tyrone Corbin...i think a new system is what we need...i would probably take a few seasons of lottery as long as i could see improvement...if not...well...what else could i do but support the team...:)

    I wonder if he plays defense?

    Jazz are famous for giving the underdogs the chance.

    I am betting he is sharp if he got brought up by the Jazz from the d league, they tend to be shrewd about those callups.

    Please stop with the Korver comments, Jazz have never regretted losing him, nor have the Bulls because in this league it is hard to defend 5 guys with only 4 defenders. The Jazz dancers play better defense than Korver.

    Good to see the Jazz win, like to see them play together. Millsap needs to get healthy again for the team to have a chance though.

    I like what Foye has done. He is a older vet and I think playing too many minutes has worn him out. Need to let Hayward start and Foye play way less minutes. I think Leslie has a place on this team. Give him a chance..

    You really don't know how to say anything else do you? Were you one of the many who was calling for us to fire Sloan two years ago? It wouldn't surprise me.

    oh and just to add...Travis Leslie..is very athletic...and plays above the rim despite standing only 6'4"...excellent hands...and good in catch and finish opportunities...if he could improve his range...this guy could be a keeper...but he needs to develop that outside game...

    I heard he can already outcoach Corbin.

    he is a decent prospect...but...i dont think he has a perimeter game...on Foye...he always has his slumps...he is not as sharp as korver...but he is more athletic...

    I don't know what's happened with Foye. The guy was shooting lights out and now he has gone ice cold. I still think he can break out of his slump and be an asset to the team but for now I'm all for seeing this new hot shot get a chance to do well. Go for it youngster and make an impact. I'm rooting for ya.
