    this year won't be the jazz year...since they still need to have chemistry...but once they get a feel of each other's game...the sky is the limit...they key things now...are the bench players...namely the two rookies...Hayward and Evans...they have so limited playing time...i think they need to average at least 20 minutes...but i think the reason why the starters get a lot of minutes is for them...to have chemistry first...once the starters got a feel of each other's game...the bench will come in...and have a feel of how the game is played...

    Also: I love Jefferson's attitude. He really likes being in Utah. Does that sort of fly in the face of he who didn't want to be here, who said he would get a raise, regardless? It is so refreshing to have Jefferson here instead of Boozer! Those two actions by the Jazz, not offering Boozer a bigger new contract, therefore he decided to walk, and O'Conner's great move to obtain Jefferson, have saved the Jazz organization from a difficult task of having to almost start over. They would have certainly lost Williams, had they not obtained Jefferson.

    The Jazz bench is deep, but there are many new players. It will take time for them to jell, as Coach Johnson said, as did Jefferson. I'm really stoked about this team. I predict we have onlly seen the "tip of the iceburg" with this team. We will see great things transpire this year. This is the Jazz' year. I have a feeling. All of the players are trying hard and trying to earn their money. Just wait until the two draft picks develop a little - they will really add to this team. We saw some of their upside in the pre-season games. I'm way excited about this year's team. Go Jazz!

    I'm glad that Al is filling in nicely just like everyone else a work in progress but one of my concerns is that can we really afford to continue to have or main players log in so many minutes. I's a long season and I worry that the wear and tear will eventually take it's toll on them (knock on wood).

    Al better figure it out. Very inconsistent. I don't think Al is used to getting crisp passes since he never received one in Minnesota. Too many dropped or fumbled passes.
