    I can't for the life of me understand why people want big Al traded if he didn't play last night we lose. Plus we all call him a black hole but he is the only one late in a game that is not scared to shoot

    It truly is amusing to me to watch some of you posters come on these boards after every game saying you are done watching the Jazz and that the organization is horrible and so on and so forth. Clearly you guys havent left so stop being fair weather fans and complaining about every decision is made. The Jazz know what they are doing and dont need our input. Just be grateful that we even have a team!!! Also, has it ever occurred to you guys screaming for more playing time for the young guys that getting to the playoffs will actually help develop the players further? I mean more games played means more playing time doesnt it??? IF you guys dont like the Jazz jsut stop freaking watching already

    I sat down to watch last nights game and I asked myself why am I even watching this game?

    1. There were no stars to watch on either team. Boring.

    2. The game was in doubt against a cellar-dwellar from the East until late in the 4th quarter on our own home court! Pathtetic.

    3. Young guys hardly get playing time and then do little or nothing against backup/scrub talent on a lousy Detroit team.

    4. This is just a poor entertainment product and hardly worth my time anymore.

    5. This team needs to decide whether they will forever flounder in mediocrity with this pile of average veteran role players or whether they want to grow the talent they have and see if they have any prospect to be capable stars or not.

    I understand finances but from a fans perspective it is not exciting to be road kill for the #1 seed in the playoffs and then lose a lottery pick when we need talent desperately for the future.

    Trade deadline looming.

    Decision time.

    Big Al was great.

    Corbin will lead us to the lotto trying to make the playoffs. The bad news is the development of the future is not going to happen. Bell is running this team now. Burks will be lucky to even sniff playing time. Corbins a bust.

    Bell did well on defense. Stuckey scored most of his points against other guys.

    Great article Randy Hollis, The Jazz deserve to make the playoffs, and stir it up.
    They are capable of anything.

    The Jazz played well but there is no consistency. Two steps forward and then three steps backward. We'' ll see if March 15 will bring any changes. I would say no.

    Jefferson came up big on a tough night. I am glad he showed character in playing. Could he be the superstar go to guy on this team? Harris continues to improve. This will be critical with games against Nash and the Warriors Guards. AJ and Monroe hurt each other in the First Half but Al dominated him in the 2nd half. Inside shots not that hard to get. Millsap played well, and CJ had his one good game out of 3. Stuckey was very hard to stop, but again the Jazz have a decision to make. The less said about Bell the better. The Sloan like LOyalty and this guy on a great night might hit 10 and not exactly Mr stopper on D either. Miles is in a Contract year and he is not going to be dealt. To me it is clear, agree or not he can provide the needed double figure scoring a #2 has to do. Burks should get the backup Minutes and Raja needs to be let go...
