    @ Pete88--I agree with CJ on this one my friend. DWill had no say in going to NJ but he will make the best of it. Things are changing in DWill and they are excited again. DWill, bum wrist and all, is playing well. His assists over the past few games have been mind boggling. Suns were lucky to get a win. DWill will be fine and return to full strength. No one can deny that. Once it happens watch out as he is the best in the league--no disrespect to Rose or Westbrook. NJ gets a few peaces in place and DWill will thrive. Sloans offense was not for DWill. Mark my words he will explode....Now, with that said, I love DWill but my loyalty is with the Jazz. I like Devon Harris, don't love, just like. He will do well but he will never have the talent as DWill and I know we all agree on that. I am more excited about Favors and his potential. Now if we can get some outside shooting and spread the offense and play some mean D we may be okay after all. Go Jazz....

    Dwill is doing great in NJ. He had 18 assists last night. He is much happier in an open offense without Jerry and Jerry Jr holding him back.

    @Sputterish - quit sputtering out nonsense. The front office didn't make this decision in 20 minutes. The Jazz had already talked in lengths about the possibility of acquiring Harris earlier that month. The Jazz were well aware of the pieces that were being offered and most likely made that decision as soon as Melo was moved. I think the Jazz knew they were going to move Williams and were hoping for the Nets deal to fall through, so they could pounce on it.

    I don't think Memo will ever be back. It's hard enough for a big white guy to get around in this league. He may produce 10 or so points off the bench but he'll never be the same. Look what happened to Elton Brand.

    I would take these two men over Williams and his attitude any day. Throw in a lottery pick and another 1st rounder and it is no contest. I wonder how Deron likes playing for the Nets. He is probably wearing his ruby red ahoes and clicking his heels saying "there's no place like Utah".

    Okay, THE trade was a last moment surprise event that surprised everyone, even KOC and Greg Miller. They had something like 20 minutes to make their decision . . . so when did they fit in the "extensive" background check? Just wondering . . . .
    Memo will be back--and good as ever. his injury was huge, and some injuries take more time than the avrage fan or player would like. No doubt the 6 months w/out playing brought about the added stress for his back when he did return, but he's doing everything right in order to heal well and return strong.

    If Okur isn't careful, he just might injury himself out of a job.

    Last time Okur came back he missed a 2 foot shot, can't hardly wait for his return this time.
