    why can't the jazz tear up Hayward's contract and give him long term now - should be a way to accomplish instead of paying 8 million for someone to guard the bench. thanks

    Chamberlain was amazing, no doubt. He was a freakish athlete, much like LeBron is now. He was built like no one else.
    His standing reach was about 9' 7" according to numerous sites.

    We are filling our roster with young, hardworking, and unselfish players that most importantly have talent. We have an opportunity this off season to make smart moves to add depth and possibly some vets to add maturity and experience, but i'm not sure that is the route we will or need to go. The 2014 draft is loaded, and with the cap space we have available we could set ourselves up to be competitive this next season while still being realistic. Let's face it, next season we aren't going to jump from not making the playoffs to contender. However, this season could offer a year of experience and building of team chemistry for our younger core players. Maybe we squeak into the playoffs this year, maybe we don't. Either way it will be a success. 2014 draft we go all in to get Parker. A humble kid with Utah ties (he's a mormon). He could be the star caliber player we need, that won't bail the minute he has a chance...all of a sudden we could be looking at a finals run with all the pieces in place.

    I'd like to see the Jazz start all the young guys all season, even if it means losing more games than winning and missing the playoffs. No need to bring in some vets to start if it means barely making the playoffs. The real draft prizes are 2014--if we want to compete long term, we need a Wiggins or a Parker.

    I like this direction the Jazz management is taking. Trey Burke was a big pickup. I saw him play in the big stage in the NCAA tournament and was quite impressed with his ball-handling and shooting ability. His defense is very good too. I had no idea that the Jazz had all that cap space so the coming months should be exciting (hopefully).

    To put Gobert in perspective, Wilt Chamberlain could stand flatfooted and wrap both hands around the rim. As for the Jazz, so far so good. Burke is already winning friends. Could the Jazz stash both Gobert and Neto overseas for development?
