The Jazz wouldnt pay all star Paul Millsap 10 mil a year but will gladly pay
washed up worthless Novak 7 mil a year. Ya that makes alot of sense. Get a clue!
I always liked Steve Novak, I was hoping the jazz would've drafted him 2006
with the 14th overall pick, but instead they picked a guy who had a very awkward
shot and was a decent defender (Ronnie Brewer). Novak was a knock down
shooter when he came into the NBA and has continued to light it up behind the
arc. It's a very nice thing that this guy is 6'10" tall and can
hit the long ball at a pretty consistent rate (43%). That's better than
Memo and I loved the Money Man. To me it just makes the game fun when you have a
big man that can knock down the 3 like most big men hit the 2. To top it off,
he's a dead-eye from the free throw line, something the Jazz lacked
horribly last year.
Jimmer would be dumb to want to play in Utah, and I don't think he's
dumb. Too much fan baggage to deal with, which is also a big reason ownership
doesn't want him. If he manages to carve out a nice career going forward, I
could see him ending up here in a few years, but that's just speculation.
Right now, he'd be nuts to volunteer to deal with both the overexuberant
BYU fans and the silly goofs who boo him for no rational reason.
@Cj MilesAnd you're any better? I am glad you are no longer on
I still remember a line from Scott Wedman, after injuries and age limited his
game. He said, "I am able to keep a job in the NBA because I stay in shape,
can still shoot a little, and I keep my mouth shut."Guys like
Novak are partly for practice. Smart guy; experienced; he knows the other
players and teams around the league. Especially, he will teach the starters, in
scrimmage, why and how they need to defend the 3-ball. And he will keep his ego
in check. By the way, he was a pretty good rebounder, in college, when he had
For his career he averages 5 points a game. And he is 31 years old. Waste of
money. Trust me, when he is in the game, the other team will attack the basket
at will. There is no upside to this guy.
Per Jody Jazz management want a "veteran presence in the locker room to
school the young point guards" which rules out Jimmer. My opinion is that
Jimmer would not only help the Jazz on the floor but he would put a spur in the
young points to work and play hard.My opinion also is that
regardless of how good a fellow Lucas may be the young Turks won't pay him
enough attention to count.
another okur, me likes...
The guy shot 97% from the stripe, his senior year in college. His Junior year,
I believe, he shot over 50% from 3-point land. If the Jazz were really looking
for a shooter, he looks like the guy. Now let me throw this one into the
dialogue, just to start trouble: this makes an opening for Jimmer as the third
point guard. And everyone's villian, Lucas, can go back home. Sorry Ute
fans....I am not LDS and have never been to BYU campus. Nevertheless, I still
like Jimmer. I wonder how many Utes would quit going to Jazz games, if Fredette
were on the squad?
Very few 6'10" players can shoot outside shots as well as this guy can.
A great pickup for the Jazz... with a future draft pick thrown in as a bonus.
Good pickup and shows what style coach Snyder want to play!!
