    Rainintime: I appreciate your frustration with the NBA, both players and owners etc and I totally agree with the comment about the BCS.
    That said, I can see how Jody probably had a great time, even if he ended up being sore and stiff for days after. Both Alema Harrington and Ben Bagley complained big time about how stiff and sore they were.
    The NBA lockout is a sad thing and like Rainintime says, it affects alot more people than the players and owners and affects them in a more hurtfull way. The owners & players make so much money the can afford to miss paychecks, business's and working men and women that depend on the NBA for their livlihood are the real casualties.

    I disagree that this was a good article.

    This was a PR plug for the Jazz, fed to the Desnews "reporter," by the Jazz PR staff.

    This article was damage control to protect the image of the local NBA franchise. How about an article on all the people out of work and income who rely on the NBA? (I am not one of them, but feel more for them than I do the players, coaches and owners).

    My main issue with the media, local or otherwise, is they use to fight for the little guy and be a voice for the people.

    Now all the media guys are looking out for themselves and the big bucks and big reputation by being part of the problem and part of the big "Industry" instead of pointing to it obvious ills and self promotion.

    I could say the same for the protection the media, local or otherwise, give the BCS. When the Utes were on the outside looking in, the local media easily exposed the BCS for the fraud that it is. Now that the Utes are in the BCS, so too are the media. Their silence is deafening!
