    miles miles miles...you've got your poo colored glasses on again.

    I watched both of these games on NBA tv, both games had announcers who were former NBA players. You know what they couldn't stop talking about? How Jerry Sloans teams play the best team basketball in the NBA, about how the Utah Jazz probably have the closest thing to an international team philosophy in the NBA, and how Jerry Sloan and his teams were always known for tough hard nosed play.

    Before the game they had a HOF special focusing on Stockton and Sloan. Do you know what they kept talking bout? The very same thing, team basketball and toughness.

    So when Jerry Sloan stands in front of the media and complains that his team isn't playing together as a team, and that they aren't tough enough, 20 years of watching his teams and seeing him coach would indicate that he has probably tought them how to do those things, and they just aren't doing them, and that it's not the other way around.

    I didn't see any of the promised "new Boozer defense". Team defense looked pretty good and the bench hussled, but we still got to see Boozer standing still while the guy he was supposed to be defending blew by him. Boozer of course took a swipe at the ball with his hands while his feet were firmly planted in front of the spot where his opponent once stood. Can the regular season and his "contract year" possibly get him to try and move his feet and stay between the basket and the offensive player?

    Jerry maybe you should try talking to the team and not the media about the defensive and offensive problems. If you like the way Madrid plays the game, maybe you should coach your players to play that way.

    Jerry amaazes me. He complains non-stop to the media about the team play. Isn't it the coaches job to get his team to play?
