    Here is the way I see it, seems so simple.

    Most NBA teams have 8 solid pieces. 1 or 2 of those being superstars.

    Right now the Jazz have 4 of 8 with no superstars. Core 4 (Kanter, Favors, Hayward, Burkes)

    Next year we will have a superstar Jabari or Wiggins. Plus Trey Burke will be back.

    Now we have 6 of 8, add 2 shooters and perhaps a good free agent and bam, we are right back in the championship hunt, but this time all of our players will be under 23 and we will be hunting for the next 8 to 10 years.

    So lets take our bumps this year, and lets enjoy the winning ways the next 10.

    Go Jazz

    you take away offense and you teach defense and ....voila no offense.

    The Jazz do not have the scoring ability this season. The team has no experience against real NBA teams and are finding it hard to score.

    Just remember this season where up is down and down is up. Each time the team wins they lose a percentage of getting a strong pick in the first round.

    Each game they lose is another percentage for the tank bank.

    We say short term pain for long term gain but it is actually hard when it is the Jazz and their fans that are in the midst of the pain.

    What did anyone expect so far? You let two or three of our best scorers go and expect the new guys will fill right in and keep the scoring going? With a mixed up assortment of guys from all over the place? Why would the Jazz do that to their fans and players? I know the players are trying, but we lost a lot of scoring power that we maybe should have kept a little longer while developing the younger guys. I don't get it, sorry.
