Al who? Kanters the man! I'm stoked to see these guys get some playing time this year. Go Jazz!

I was really disappointed to hear he hasn't played at all. I know he's been injured, but he hasn't touched a ball?? Don't expect much progress from a player who hasn't practiced in the offseason.

EdCullen: It appears you haven't been following the Jazz much during the summer, Kanter should be commended for his hard work, Kanter dislocated his shoulder a week or so before the end of the season, he had surgery and has been rehabbing all summer long and was just cleared to play less than a week before camp started. He has touched a ball just not in 5 on 5 situations, he has worked out with Karl Malone etc and he will be fine . I expect Kanter to be the leading scorer for this team, maybe it will be Hayward but Kanter is a natural on offense and I'll be surprised if he's not the leading scorer.

I understand this is going to be a challenging year. But beyond that, I'm really quite excited for this coming season. There will be some growing pains, but also a lot of excitement.

I think critics are going to be quite surprised. Also, we're going to see a lot of improvement (more-so than from most teams) measuring from the first to the end of the season.

A solid foundation is being formed. And yes, it is going to require a bit of patience from fans who aren't accustomed to be patient. But it will be well worth it when we see the primary results within the next 2 years.

@Tators,

Kanter is very likeable. He has always been polite and cooperative. Because of his religion, he has shown great respect for authority and family. In fact, what got him into trouble at Kentucky was the fact of problems with the arrangement by his father to have him play for a certain junior squad in Turkey. I believe that he builds on the very solid Jazz foundation of a multi ethnic team and example to society of how we can all work together successfully.
