    I have heard that the Lakers are looking to off load Gasol, I know its a rumor, but I also heard a rumor that possibly a trade between Jefferson and Gasol. All I know is they need someone that wants to play some defense.

    D.Carroll REALLY wants to play and should. Whenever he hits the floor (literally and figuratively) my own enthusiasm ramps up and I stop groaning so often. Pleeeeeeze, Jazzboys, don't mess up tonight against the Wizards!

    Go Jazzboys!!

    This team is unwatchable.

    I like Corbin but I'm starting to think he doesn't think during the game. It's like he's got when the bench comes in and when the starters come back in the game and forgets about who's hot and who's playing hard. Most of our subs deserved another 10 min in this game. I'm getting sick of the Starters not playing any defense. The second unit does and that's why they got us back into the game. Play the guys who are playing hard and playing defense. Sorry Jefferson seems like he doesn't care to play defense at all, he'll have 1 game where he plays some defense then 3 where he won't play any. It's disgusting how many layups and dunks he gives up. Maybe if Corbin cut his minutes based on if he plays defense he might start playing defense to get on the floor. I don't know just a thought. Have to figure out some ways to get him playing D, and Mo has been bad defensively lately too. Things need to change!

    Be your own man Ty. You know who should be getting the minutes. This team will never get going until the offense stops going through Jefferson. I really love him but you gotta trade hm and let this team go!!!

    Its evident that the starters don't want to play tough defense. This game and the New Orleans game were winnable with a little effort from the starters. The team isn't buying in to themselves and have no motivation to try and win or give what it takes to win. The New Orleans and tonights loss confirm to me that this team isn't as good as we all thought they would be. I believe its time to pull the trigger and continue trading. There is serious problems with this team and time will tell what it is but I believe management already knows the problem. It sure looks like there are some players that would rather be with other teams with more nightlife. Too bad, I was hopeful for this season but even if we pull off ten in a row this team doesn't have what it takes to have a shot at going past the first round. Truly a sad state for so much talent.
    They should honestly tank the season for some picks and get rid of underperforming players.

    Corbin needs to get a clue and play the guys that are giving the effort and not the highest paid guys! What a joke.
