    Hayward is gonna be fine, but I like the thought of having him go to D league for 10-15 games sometime during the season. It's bound to be more competitive than summer league was, and it will give him a chance to really improve his conditioning and get game-condition practice for his shooting.

    People always talking about Okur coming back. Hey, this team will go further in the playoffs with better 3-point shooting from Bell, Hayward and Miles, and more minutes by their only center with real defensive talent, Fesenko. Coach Sloan, you have got to play him more. Don't wait for an injury to Jefferson. Just start Fes, have Jefferson back up Fes first and then later in the quarter, Jefferson can back up Milsap.

    Jazz lose. Hayward will be good someday but for right know is is impersonating Kosta. Way Way too soft. Send him to the D-League for a few weeks.Thity minutes of hard basketball three to four nights a week should do it.

    Price would be a good choice. Give Bell a couple of games to heal. Coach may have had this move in mind anyway. Jazz should have kept thirteen players until Okur comes back..

    The Jazz are already thin off the bench. But Raja should rest it and work on his stroke while sitting out. He isn't good enought to play at 75% against Oklahoma. Price is a good replacement for the pace of the game tonight.

    I was just talking with my family last night about Raja. He has been playing like he's been fighting through an injury. But he's Raja Bell, and he will play through a nagging injury. However, I do hope he sits a couple of games, because a healthier Raja will have a huge impact on this team.
