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.
can't stand the wait, let's get this thing started!
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.
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 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.
Al who? Kanters the man! I'm stoked to see these guys get some playing time
this year. Go Jazz!
