    would you guys want Paul Millsap? or a chance to get Jabari Parker or Julius Randle...think about the future lineup would be....if we got Jabari...

    Hayward(If Resigned if not Burks would be here)

    Now with Randle


    we still have cap space...we could lure...Greg Monroe...i doubt Detroit has enough cash to sign Monroe anyway...pairing Monroe with Favors would be good...as Monroe can run the break...for a big...now if we kept millsap...We wouldnt have a shot of a legit superstar potential player...we might be good enough to be 9th...and that's missing out of the lottery...and we will all continue to wonder if we will ever get back to the playoffs...Also i have read some fans wanting to trade Hayward...to Phx...that would be a win/win for both team and player...Hayward's shot has been awful...but...he is the utility guy...the guy that can do many things on the court...unless we have a shot at Kawhi Leonard...Hayward would be a good complimentary player to have...

    Have most of you forgotten that we were most likely going to lose Milsap to more money at the end of the year? The NBA is a business and you have to be able to think ahead of what might happen when players are free agents. I too hated to see Milsap go but I don't know all the things that happened that the public isn't privy to. I like nothing better than to see the Jazz win but when they don't win then I try to see the best in each game. They are improving but some fans gave up on them a long time ago and refuse to see the good things. I am with the Jazz all the way and anxious to see how they improve for next year. Go Jazz and go Corbin.

    I'm glad they lost. Tanking is as good as winning this season.

    IS it ok to say that letting Milsap go was a mistake?

    As a life long Jazz fan, I hope, just for this one season, they lose 19 out of every 20 games.

    Without a top pick in this next draft, we keep battling for 8th or 9th place in the West every year.

    A top pick in this draft could be a complete game changer, and that is absolutely worth one bad season.

    The DESERET NEWS SHOULD DO A POLL ON THIS. Almost every Jazz fan I know feels the same way. It would be interesting to see poll results on a website like this.

    Ive thought all along that the Jazz were stupid to let Milsap, Caroll, and Korver go- you can also add Matthews and Foye to that list.

    The lone bright spot was Enes Kanters play. It was good to see him beasting and crashing the boards again. That kind of continued effort will have his confidence back in no time. I look for good things to come from Enes the remainder of the season. Hope he gets enough playing time to continue on with his development.

    I still believe in the Jazz and that the Jazz will win tonight against Charlotte. They have the talent to win 35 games this season and I expect them to do it barring any major injuries to the fab five. I'm sorry to say we will not get a top five pick in the draft this coming year, but I think we have the best player from 2013 draft in Trey Burke, so we are in great shape for years to come.

    The "junkyard dog" from Mizzou is missed for his hustle and energy. Coach Corbin constantly talks about "lack of energy" with this squad. It's either Corbin inspires them or they will bring in someone who can. Malone had it. Corbin is a good teacher but his inspiration is a bit lacking. He played for Ray Meyer at DePaul so he has it somewhere. He needs to find it.

    Wow, what is it that those like Red and Blue understand about the Jazz this year?

    Let me simplify it for those who don't get it. For the remainder of the year, a win is a loss, and a loss is a win.

    Don't be confused, it's not calculus.

    I'm tired of players going to the bench with 2 fouls in the first and second quarters. This is just plain stupid. Last time I looked you were allowed 6. Corbin takes Burke out in the first quarter and Atlanta proceeds to blow out the Jazz. Corbin is in way over his head and has no clue on how to fix the Jazz.

    Once again I have to hold our Jazz organization accountable for our record, for cavalierly letting Milsap go along with Big Al and Foye, some real scorers. We might have gotten back in the playoffs with those guys, but with current 'kids', not hardly, though we've seen some good basketball at times. I can't believe next year's draft is going to save us from ourselves either though, thanks to all the guys who make the big decisions. It's hard to turn a bad year around with a few good draft picks. Losing too much makes for more losing and a tough road back to some dignity.

    Utah needs to trade Hayward to the Suns for a few draft picks and maybe a player before his value goes down.

    In contrast to some on this board, I thought the performance was great. It was an excellent loss and I'm hoping we have many more of them. I used to be of the opinion that Corbin was the wrong choice to lead the Jazz but I have bought into his steady approach and respect Jazz management for their personnel decisions.

    Pitifully inadequate offense + pitifully inadequate defense = ROUT

    What an uncoordinated, unmotivated group that was on the floor last night...One can't help but wonder how much longer the hierarchy is going to put up with Corbin....He might be one of the nicest people in the world, but he's a "pitifully inadequate" NBA coach.

    What an effort from the Jazz and especially from the starting five. Is this what we can expect for the remainder of the season? I find it very sad that our team has been reduced to this kind of performance. Who do we blame...Ownership...Coaching staff...or players? How about all of them?

    Not to worry Jazz fans...

    The Jazz are still, by record, the worst team in the West 7-22 .241.

    The worst team, in the NBA, (Milwaukee)is 5-21 .192.

    It will be a dog fight...well... maybe a fight among dogs...however... there is still hope the Jazz will finally be #1 at something.
