Rondo is a free agent and better than D-Will
I think the welcome mat for D-Will has been rolled up and tied very tight. We
can do better with others.
D-Will will not come back, thankfully, under any circumstances but if he did the
Jazz would fair no better than they will under a Mo Williams or another good
shooter at the point position.
As much as I like D-Will the player, I'd rather invest max-money in
somebody else. We've seen his temperament working with younger players;
we've seen his temperament when he has a disagreement with his coach.
It's important to be passionate, but D-Will's passion comes at the
expense of developing players and teamwork. He will not be the glue that would
hold the Utah Jazz together.
I wish that D-Will's time in NJ would have humbled him significantly. I
wish that he would have looked at that young talented line-up that Utah brought
to Jersey and dreamed of leading that squad. Then I wish he would go to Greg
Miller with his hat in his and and ask for the Jazz to consider bringing him
back at a salary a little below market value. I know it is a pipe
dream, but it's fun to dream. That would be an amazing team. There are a
lot of things I miss about D-Will's game.
I truly believe D-Will became a malcontent here in Utah and I'm not sure
that anything would change if he came back to his old address. He will more than
likely mature and get away from this selfish me first mentality but I don't
believe Utah is the right place for him to be to try and change his image! We
can get by without him I'm sure.
I've said from the second the trade happened that it would be absolutely
brilliant if the Jazz were to get all they got for him and then get him back in
free agency.I understand why people are still upset about how things went
down with he and Sloan but I for one would welcome him back with open arms ...
the young Jazz with DWill at the point would be an exciting threat in the West.
The chip he carries on his shoulder for anyone who has slighted him in any way
is a big part of what makes Deron such a competitor. Will he soon forgive KOC
and the Jazz for shipping him off to NJ? I think not...
I would take D-Will back in a heartbeat. How many guys are there in the NBA who
are true generals on the floor? Kobe, Nash, Rondo, Durant, Wade.... There are
not that many who have the leadership skills that Williams has. He is exactly
what we need to propel us back to the top of the conference.
Once a player becomes too big for the team and more important than the team, I
lose interest in giving my support and fan-ship. I'm positive no one will
lose any sleep over losing me, especially DWill. I love this new crop of
players who are just having fun trying the create the best T-E-A-M that they
can. Go Jazz!
HHmmm.... go back to a city that lost a legendary coach because mainly you??
don't think so.
D-Will's ego is too big for the JAZZ. Let Miami have him.
As much as I loved the way Deron ran the Jazz offense, I would prefer to see the
Jazz go for someone two years younger and much more affordable, Goran Dragic.
That said, I would hate to see the Lakers pick up Williams, although that
wouldn't surprise me. They periodically pick up another team's best
player (Shaq, Odom, Gasol).
