i looked up some info about the picks...and Cody Zeller seems legit...Dennis is
a High Risk High Reward pick...and his development would be crucial for his
success...and i dont think we have the coaching talent to be able to develop him
to a premier point guard...i think...if you want to build a winning team...you
must look at the person who will lead the team...The coach....without a good
coach...we would be nothing...we missed out on Thibodeau...we missed out on a
lot of possible good coaches...i really dont think Corbin is the
answer...especially if he doesnt like developing his young guys....
it would be nice if they could package Millsap and a second round to get
Cody...and what are we going to do with Ante Tomic?...i think he will no longer
come to play for the Jazz...so might as well package him and a first round...for
a first round next year...regarding the PG....i think there is a ton of mystery
with Dennis...he is a High Risk High Reward kind of pick....Shane Larkin...is
5'11...will he be better than Ty Lawson?...and what if Shabazz fell into
14...are we going to take him?...a lot of questions and i am looking forward to
the off season
@shayboYou have to admit that Burks is good enough as a backup point guard
just so he gets major minutes on the court. He can swing between point and
shooting guard. A rookie point guard is going to need some time to develop,
anyway. @American vetI hope you are right about Perrin not being
totally truthful about how much the Jazz like Schroeder. I was disappointed to
hear him say that Schroeder isn't Rondo defensively by a long shot, but
isn't defense mostly effort and anticipation anyway. We shall see. I'm
guessing that if the Jazz want this guy, he won't last until the
Jazz's second first round pick. I think they should go for this guy at 14
unless they can move up the draft board by trading Milsap and/or Jefferson.
Jaycee Carrol and Jimmer Fridette
@Iowa Jazz Fan 2, If there is one thing we learned from the considerable time
Burkes spent and point guard this past season is that he is not a playmaker. I
would still have preferred they had used him there instead of Tinsley or Watson
but they need a good playmaking point guard if they are ever going to be a high
There is a seven minute scouting video posted. He has tremendous quickness with
a great hesitation dribble. He is a very good three point shooter. However in
between layups and three pointers, there are big problems such as absolutely no
jumpshot. Because of his lack of competition (Please, the "Phantom
Brownsweigers") his skill level is very suspect. He is going on 20 and can
develop but where? How much did Murphy develop sitting on the bench? The U.S.
has no minor league system other than using colleges for that purpose. Actually,
his current state of ability is pretty pathetic. I still think that Larkin is
worth the increased scrutiny. I don't know much about the point guard from
Louisville. However, you can't argue with success and he should be looked
at closely as well.
I'm fairly certain that the Jazz will use the 14th pick on Schroeder. The
only way that doesn't happen is if he gets taken earlier (a real
possibility) or if someone like Kelly Olynyk or Cody Zeller drops into their
lap. If either one of those two scenarios happen then the Jazz will then take
the best remaining point guard, likely Shane Larkin or Michael Carter Williams.
If you believe Walt Perrins comments it wold seem unlikely the Jazz would take
Schroeder, at least with the 14th pick. But I'm sure there is a lot of
poker faces out there right now between all the GM's and scouts.
Make Burks the point guard. Sure, he's a 2, but he's convertible to
the 1 -- and a lot farther along than Schroeder.
I've been impressed from what I've seen of him.
Would love to see the Jazz get Schroeder and Adams the big man..
