    i think the X-Factor will be Gordon Hayward...if he gets an average of 20 mins a game...he might evolve into a Manu Ginobili type of player...the Kid can ball...if you placed him at the two...he gets height advantage...he can handle the ball very well...i think we need this kid to improve...he will be a very special player in the near future...

    AK is the X factor, if he plays well the Jazz usually win.
    CJ is maybe the next X factor, if he can become consistent, he makes the Jazz hard to beat, he gives the Jazz the 3 pt shooter they need and spreads the floor.
    I'm hoping he can be consistent.
    Fes is my next hopeful X factor, if he can get playing time, he will show how much of a positive effect he has on the game, he changes how the other team attacks. He is the defensive presence we need in the paint.

    Why it's always money? He got paid what he does. Ak is not Lebron Wade or Koby but he gets involved he could pull 20-25 every night. But scoring is not his main thing, hustle and team play that's what he does best. No wonder when Ak on fire Jazz always wins.

    AK is a team-first guy. he has always been willing to do whatever is asked.

    When you have a 2 like Raja and a 3 like AK, its a roller coaster ride! You never know what your going to get. For the superstar money AK makes, the team needs a double double every night out him and we have yet to see that happen. I think this team needs a better shooting guard, someone to help stretch the floor.

    It's always good to have A K play good. Last night he had 0 turnovers in 48 minutes. That is definantly an improvement in his game. I would like to see A K learn to box out on rebounds. One rebound in 48 minutes is not going to cut it for a front line player on a supposed contending team. This area of A K's game needs alot of work and a conscious effort towards improvement.

    This is why AK starts over the 1-13 CJ Miles. Ak has never had that bad of a game. Even with his high contract I hope they kepp AK. He is very valuable..
