    Peter Fehse is the other Jazz player you might be thinking of. They got him from the Matt Harpring trade to OKC.

    Fehse is another 7 footer. Not sure how good he is though...can't find anything on youtube...

    I love the current make up of this team knowing at seasons end there will be more. One thing I would like to request from anyone of the D-News sports dept. is that I as well as many other Jazz fans would like some updated information on Ante Tomic. How is his season stats and play going, what committment does he have over there ect? Also if I'm not mistaken there is another foreign player the Jazz have draft rights to. Whats his name please and how is he doing? See what info you can attain please!

    @ JayDogg

    How many Lakes are in L.A.? Does that mean the lakers should change their name? How many Bobcats are in Charlotte? How many Grizzlies are in Memphis? Warriors in Golden State? Is there Magic in Orlando? Just because the Jazz name doesn't really fit in Utah doesn't mean we should change it. There is a lot of tradition behind the name.

    It's time the Jazz rename the team to something else. The only reason they kept the mascot name "Jazz" is because the owners did not think the team would ever succeed in Utah. Well, they have, and the name should be changed to something that actually relates to Utah.

    Count me among the perpetual optimists who are "re-Jazzed" with this new team. It was fun to be there last night and observe how many Celtics fans were there and making themselves known throughout the entire game. It was hard to know which was the home team with the noise level on both ends of the court. (My fingers were in my ears through most of the game.) I'm loving the new kids, the new coach, the new attitude/energy from most everybody. It feels good to have hope once again, after all that has been said and done. Whatever happens to the rest of this season (and I am still optimistic about that as well), this moving-forward situation looks to be in the right direction. Go Jazzboys!! I'm once again going to drive my husband (and cat) crazy with my cheering (too bad)...

    Love the energy last night that has been missing for a while. The game last night was great and though it was a lost, they won in spirit. Go Jazz!!

    I was there last night and I am encouraged. Favors looks like he can play even as a rookie and Devin looks like he will thrive in this system. They also bring a certain joy to the game that has been missing for awhile. They played one of the best teams in the NBA down to the wire.

    The Jazz may have lost the game but I loved they way they played. A month or two ago if they had fallen behind (like they did in this game) they would have just rolled over and let Boston steamroll them.

    For whatever reason, bringing in Favors and Harris has lit a fire under the team. The Jazz are now playing the kind of ball we all hoped they would before the season started.

    It was great to see the Jazz push Boston hard ... almost to the breaking point. Jefferson's play, in particular, was outstanding. The cold icy stare he gave Garnett was the kind of orneriness that I haven't seen from a Jazz player since Karl Malone.
