    fan29, the Jazz were way over the cap last summer and none of the big free-agents would ever sign here anyway. The Jazz have never "brought in top all-star talent", unless you count old man Austin Carr & Donyell Marshall.

    Hornacek & Jeff Malone came via trades. Teams won't trade with the Jazz unless it was for DWill or lowball offers for Millsap, or a Boozer firesale last year.

    Unless you're the Lakers, Celtics, Bulls or Heat, you have to build through the draft like OKC, and where are the Bulls without Rose, Deng & Noah?

    Harris, Sap & Al stay healthy, and all the kids & lotto picks develop, we're right back in this in 2-3 years. I'm tired of "playoff runs" with fringe veterans ending in LA & SA every year.

    Did we seriously just let Evans, Hayward, and Favors finish a game? Maybe Corbin hasn't given up...

    I would argue that Corbin has thrown in the towel on the season. He is saving his best talent for next season by making them sit on the bench, while making players play who aren't either interested or able. I sure wish I could judge Corbin's coaching, but he hasn't started coaching, yet, so we may never know if he's any good....

    Wow. After 3 quarters, we're down by 10, at home, to the Wizards. The Wizards aren't even playing that well. My embarassment turns a darker shade of red.

    You Dreamers just keep looking to the future. This league has changed. With this group of players the Jazz won't see the playoffs for years to come. The run of being in the playoffs has come to a end for the Jazz. We just don't have the market to bring in top all star players anymore. They just don't won't to play here. If for some fluke reason one of these draft picks pan out, they will be gone in a flash to follow the $$$. You don't let a All Star get away, you build around him. The Jazz didn't go out last summer and put players around Williams and that's why he's gone!!!

    The bigger issue is will there be a 2011-2012 season? As of now there is a player/owner dispute/impasse. There is too much money in this industry, and we are all paying for it in the items we purchase. It is all outrageous what sports is costing us across the board.

    I still think the Williams trade was the smart thing to do. The Jazz will have a few new faces next season and can make a run next year. Two lottery picks, money to spend on a free agent and a GM who knows how to get it done. One bad season and a lot of you are whining like we were the clippers. Look how long it took the Bulls to become a playoff team after Jordan left. Look at the Bucks, Nets, 76ers etc. SLC has had it very good for many years. If you don't like what they are doing then stop watching them and don't buy tickets but for heavens sake, stop whineing and give them a chance to get the ship righted. If they are still in the same boat this time next year then you have something to complain about.

    To paraphrase AI, Playoffs? Playoffs?? We don't need no stinkin' Playoffs!

    The future and draft picks will end up being much more fun to watch than this years Jazz, if they were in the playoffs, get swept in round 1.

    Anybody want to buy my Jazz playoff seats? Cheap!!!
