    Jimmer Jimmer can't even start in sac town. We don't need a 2 guard that is 6' 1". I like Foy but he is not tall enough to guard other 2's. Either be real good top 5 or be real bad another lottery pick. Just play the young guns can't be much worse.

    @ Murray Mike
    I can't exactly quote the rules in the league but when you trade players their salaries have to match up to a certain degree. Jefferson makes 15 million a year so the Kings would have to add in more than Jimmer to do that trade. I am a Jimmer fan but I'm not sure he gives us anything more than Foye does now. Foye is the 4th best long ball shooter in the NBA right now.

    We have all those Lotto Picks we need to use them. Trade Jefferson and the Golden State pick for Sacramento's Pick and Jimmer.

    Well, if I remember correctly almost all our lottery picks got playing time (excet Hayward) and the team still got their butts handed to them by Houston.

    Corbin and the players ought to be hanging their head in shame and everyone who attended literally ought to get a refund.

    No pride in that group. It looked like a globetrotter layup game.


    Hayward is making nice progress. I'm getting very concerned about the lack of progress from Favors. He has all kinds of ability and yet all you get is an occasional play. Meanwhile Kanter makes huge improvement year over year with just a week or two work with Kiki Vandeweghe.

    The reason they don't get more minutes is because they don't show progress or deserve them. Hayward gets minutes...gee I wonder why.

    On the other hand Marvin William gets waaaaaaaay too many minutes. He is a huge underachiever. Hopefully get goes free agent at the end of the season and does not use his option to stay.

    The key is if they leave or not at the end of their first contract.

    John, I'm with you in not liking Corbin, but if the players quit, shouldn't they be the ones to get fired?

    Jazz bench players are better than starters and play alot better defense!

    I'm tired of Lindsey saying to be patient. I have been patient for over 30 years to no avail. If the players quit on Corbin like they did Monday then he should be fired. Big mistake giving him another year. I think Jeff H. would have been a better choice.

    If all of the jazz lottery picks played 30 minutes a game the jazz would lose 99 percent of the games they play. Who is going to score besides hayward. Kanter is predictable, Favors is clumsy, and burks is out of control. Not a good combination

    The article seemed to miss the mark. Read the posts.

    Headline should be ‘The future of the Jazz is bright with lottery-pick players' IF THEY PLAY 30+ MIN A GAME. How come two third pick players are only playing 21 and 14 min a game? This is a joke

    The slap of "45 at home", still hurts. You can't exactly minimize a trip to the "Custer memorial". Without Mo Williams, there are big problems in distributing the ball. Foye can shoot if set up by Williams. Williams gives the big men first crack. He is a good floor general. However, it must now be asked just what his status is. It looks like the salary cap is the answer. Favors and Kanter are ready to carry the load.

    You said Dallas got 7 players who were one of those Lottery Pick and you name four players? Do your math too!

    The future of the Jazz young lottery pick players is bright only if we can get a qualified coach in here to develop them and give them more playing time.

    How come we aren't playing those lottery picks more then? They won't develop if they can't play. Am I right?

    The Jazz might have a lot of lottery picks, but they don't have any superstars, or even superstars in-the-making. Not sure how they'll ever get another one. D-Will was the closest they had after losing Karl & John.

    Even so, I predict the Jazz will make the playoffs IF 45 wins is enough, which is what I think they'll get to, considering how they've done so far, who they have left to play, and where.

    For the Jazz to advance in the playoffs, they'll need to have everyone healthy and used to playing with each other again.

    Headline should have added "unless management and coach ruin them."

    I guess this is the only positive thing to say after a 45 point home loss.

    The problem is if you draft anyone great they'll want to leave eventually.
    Deron Williams wasn't even great, and he still wanted to leave.

    Sell more Jerseys and are more visible in other markets.
