About the only thing this new-found competitive spurt of the Jazz is going to do
is take them out of the top 3 or 4 places in the upcoming NBA lottery and put
them into the dreaded no-mans land of being in the middle of the NBA standings.
This will put them in the position of either just missing the playoffs, or
getting into the 8th seed and getting swept out in the 1st round of the
playoffs. More importantly, it will push the Jazz further away from the
possibility of getting a franchise player like Parker, Wiggins, or Randle.Very foolish, Jazz.
I totally understand where you are coming from GORED, however if the Jazz roster
would have been fully healthy from the start of the season to present, we would
not be even talking about the lottery that much at all. The Jazz goal is to win
and develop the players they have now. Case in point when Stockton and Malone
left the Jazz, the Jazz were only suppose to win 20 to 25 games, however they
almost made the playoffs. The Jazz have five good to great lottery picks on
their team right now, and now is the time to play them and see what comes of
them. I think Trey Burke will be the rookie of the year as long as he stays
healthy, which means to me we have a franchise player from last years draft. If
the Jazz want another franchise player in next years draft they could trade both
of their draft picks plus Alex or Kanter?? The Jazz have options.
The Jazz have gone 9-10 after starting the season 1-14. It will be a tough call
for management at years end to figure if Hayward is worth the big contract. Has
Corbin increased his chances to stay on as coach with Burke and the young guys
developing and playing hard for him?
I will say it again: I can't have much respect for a team that would tank
it. Go Jazz, be just who you are and play and get better each game. Next year
we will consider play offs.
Who is Alex??
