For playing one of the top ranked teams the Jazz did allright. All the players need to get Burks attitude of not being scared of no one.. Which I think they did. This will be a fun season..

There were several things that I believe were established in the Jazz loss to the Thunder. On the negative, they don't have that elite scorer (unlike Oklahoma City). They do have potentially elite defenders with Favors, Kanter, and Gobert. They desperately need a point guard that's consistent. Probably the most surprising is that their go-to guy in a clutch situation appears to be Favors or Burks. Hayward played very average for a starter and was not consistent. The Jazz brass may be correct in signing Favors and not Hayward although it appears that Hayward is the one holding back at this time. The other surprise is the emergence of Gobert who looks to be a very valuable piece of the Jazz future. Exercising the fourth year options on Kanter and Burks also appears to be a good move for the Jazz. With just one or two pieces to this group, they have all the potential of being a formidable opponent to any NBA team, including the elite teams.

If the Jazz shoot free throws at just the league average, they win that game. They'll lose at least ten games this year purely because they don't shoot make throws.

For a team that's supposedly tanking, they sure seemed to be trying to win. I like it! It drove me nuts when Golden State tanked the tail end of their season just to keep their/our first round pick.
Play your hardest and let the ping pong balls fall where they may.

I volunteer to coach them on free throws, as I typically can make them at the gym (and I'm really short). I thought they played so much better than expected, especially against a top-tier team. It's all in the attitude, which they appear to have. Keep it up and bring 'em on!!

Go Jazzboys!! (Finally, it's here!)

The Jazz are correct to sign Favors for what they did. I think they are also correct for not overpaying Hayward. If Hayward thinks he is as good as George and wants similar money then I wish him well. He simply doesn't have superstar confidence, mojo, or offensive talent.

I think the Jazz should hold off on Hayward and let him continue to struggle all season and see if he can overcome the defense he is going to see every night. He is going to get smothered every game evidenced by his poor preseason shooting % now continuing into the regular season.

All those easy shots he got last season while defenses keyed on Jefferson, Millsap, and Foye are gone. Now he is getting defended and suddenly all his shots are tougher.

When he is humbled and his stats drop all season long then let's see him hold out and demand a max contract.
