Look for Hayward to sign the Jazz's qualifying offer which will make him an
unrestricted free agent in 2015 and cause the Jazz to trade him quickly.
How come when Jefferson leaves the Jazz he becomes known for his defense? He
actually anchors the 4th best defense in the league now and he is not the
weakest link even on a strong defensive team.Why is Millsap known
for being a 3 point specialist? He has shot over 45% this season from 3 point
land.I used to think the Jazz got the most from their players but it
seems now that the players get pigeonholed and known for being good or bad at
something and within the system are not allowed to change.Do the
Bobcats have a better team than the Jazz, I doubt it yet with their poorer or
less players they play much better defense. Is it against the Jazz
rules to take a page from a better defensive team and change?
Anyone here wanted to trade Hayward?...If so...to which team? and for who and
what?...instead of waiting for Phoenix to give him a poison contract...why not
trade him to Phoenix for a few unprotected first rounders....or...Trade him for
Jeff Green and a protected pick to boston...and let him reunite with Brad
Stevens...I really like Hayward's game...as i see him as a utility
player...but...his offense this year is awful...im sure he can pick things
up...but i dont see him as the guy who would work harder than the hardest worker
on the team...like Larry Bird mentioned about Granger...he mentioned that Danny
works hard...but not hard enough...people who wanted to be great...demands a lot
from themselves...and i dont see that in Hayward yet....but that what seperates
the superstars to the other players in the league
The Jazz are contenders, and they play great when TB plays great, so next year
with more experience behind him the Jazz will win 45 to 50 games. As long as the
Jazzs fab five stay healthy this year they will win 30 to 35 games this year. I
wish they would play Kanter more, but I'm sure the coaching staff knows
more than I do. The Jazz will beat Memphis and LA within the next week and break
the double digit winning mark. Go Jazz!!!!
Great to Have Gobert back, by the way what was the purpose in bringing him back?
I guess so he could watch Williams go 2 for 8 and play 30 minutes. I guess
Jefferson is still Corbin's favorite even after he goes public with his
desire to play somewhere else.
Nice human interest story. AJ appeared to change his life around when his
grandmother died. Obviously, Charlotte is lots better with his offensive
abilities. Utah is reaching all the way "across the pond" to Turkey. I
was fortunate to have sailed right down the middle of Istanbul and through the
Bosphorus on a state visit to Romania. There was a lot of dour expressions on
the part of the Turks because of the war with Greece at that time over Cyprus.
That is why it is so important for the Jazz to engage in its own diplomatic
interaction with a multi ethnic approach to the team. Actually, this may have
been a reason that Kosta Koufos didn't make it with the team. He is doing
well with Memphis by the way.
The Jazz, with all cylinders clicking, can play with most of the teams in the
league....Problem is that it's very seldom that all cylinders are
clicking....Champions can win, even when all cylinders are not clicking....They
have fundamental basketball to fall back on....The Jazz don't have anything
to fall back on, as demonstrated in Atlanta.Plain and simple, there are
more flaws on this team than should be tolerated....I find it hard to believe
that the Jazz head shed continues to tolerate it....Do you suppose they think
that somehow, while the players learn to play on their own, that Corbin will
somehow learn how to coach on his own as well?
These East Coast road trips are lottery killers. We need to get back to playing
Western teams so we can get back into the Jabari Parker sweepstakes. I say these
things while in my heart I sure like seeing the young Jazz players play hard and
show what they can do. I hear the Nets are always looking for a good gunslinger
to make them title contenders. Maybe RJ could go there next year and join all
the other "title contender" players in the final years of their careers.
We know the Nets don't mind blowing through the salary cap.
Way to bounce back Jazz!! Keep realizing you can beat almost anyone when you
try. Still behind you all the way!
Whoa that was close. So, anyway, the Jazz slowly improve and with an exciting
game to boot. They won 1 of their first 10, 3 of their next ten and now 4 of
their next ten. Let's see if the can go 5-5 over the next ten. Go Jazz!
