    if Jefferson and Millsap signed...i would expect Favors Hayward and Burks leaving...Enes Kanter is a question mark for me if he would stay...Favors burks and Hayward would probably move when a team gives them an opportunity to get regular minutes, a chance to start and to shine....next year...for me...should be the year...the Jazz organization start to commit with Favors Hayward Kanter and Burks...i see them keeping Foye Carroll and evans...they would need a strong and legit backup bigs...a PG (Jeff teague...Jose Calderon)...and another wing player that could shoot and defend...(Denver has a bunch of wings that we could try to trade for...)

    If they do make the playoffs they will have to play the Spurs or the Thunder which I don`t think they have a chance against either team! Might as well tank it and maybe get a good player in the draft!

    This Jazz team is better than their record reflects, but they aren't the ones who decide who should be on the basketball court.

    I attribute most of the losses (80%) not to the players efforts, but to Tyrone Corbin's lack of understanding which players he should play and how long he should play them.

    Surprisingly enough, he made the right decision in the game against Brooklyn when he had Hayward guarding Deron Williams.

    Maybe the mistakes he has made are starting to teach him something about the game. At least I hope so.

    Difficult as it is to take these players and their coach at their word -- which, boiled down, is that they are aware they need to make an all out effort for each of the last eight games -- I will try to do so. But we have heard similar promises for the first seventy-four games. One outside analyst who isn't buying their newly proclaimed dedication is ESPN's Bruce Bowen. Over the weekend he examined the chances of the Jazz, Lakers, and Mavericks to grab that eighth spot -- and has chosen the Lakers. The Jazz, he said, are in a good position -- "but they just don't bring a consistent effort night after night".

    How's that for a reputation to end the year on?

    ...and Coach Corbin still has no idea whom to play, and when to play them.

    The Jefferson/Millsap show has been in town now for several years. These are good guys and good players, but as the main go to guys on the team they have only been able to make us average at best. The D-Will/Boozer show (like them or not) was able to push us to the conference finals. Next year it's going to be a lot more expensive to sign Jefferson and Millsap and for what? Mediocrity? I don't know if building the Jazz around the core 4 as the main go to guys makes us a lot better in the near future, but with more time on the floor and a change in coaching I think there is a chance to get better. Big changes like that don't always work, but I would rather take that chance than continue down this same path of struggling for the 8th seed just to get swept out of the playoffs every year.

    This s a team for a 1st round playoff, no more. As long as they sell tickets and merchandise the business is good. Championship is just a vague dream in our fan's mind.
