    I for one, can't understand how so very many fans can't seem to understand the notion of a point guard needing time to become acclimated to a team. Did John Stockton come out and start burning up the floor and piling up assists in his first year with the Jazz? Did Deron Williams? Devon Harris has never dogged it for one single game and has played and acclimated himself to the Jazz beautifully. If you can't appreciate the fact that he has been one of the major reasons the Jazz will be back in the playoffs--you really don't understand how professional basketball works.

    Harris's inconsistent play most of the year is one of the reasons the Jazz are fighting for a playoff spot this late in the season. Some may think they are overachieving right now, lucky to be in the playoff picture...I don't.

    I like Harris. His consistency is improving and his confidence is growing. As for the draft most PG drafted, unless a top 3 pick, are lilkely to never match Devin Harris's skills and stats. Think of all the PG sans Stocken and Deron Williams that the Jazz drafted that didn'tt worked such as Raul Lopez who the Jazz took over Tony Parker (cringe). Botom line is Harris is not the reason the Jazz are not Title contenders at the moment.

    Dragic would be great, but the Jazz have no cap space and can only use the TPE in a trade, which won't work for a FA.

    I don't think Harris will ever be again what he was in 2007, but he has been pretty close to that level lately. l remember how he used to go off on teams back then, including the Jazz. I hope he finishes the year strong...the Jazz obviously need good play from the point guard position during this crucial stretch of games. I still think, though, that the Jazz will be drafting a point guard in June or signing Goran Dragic from the Rockets as a free agent or both.
