    I did not forget how to root for the current Jazz team, in fact I have been rooting for them since about 1982. The only difference is I am rooting for them to lose this year, because I want them to get the #1 pick, and I hope it is Parker. I understand Jabari Parker may not even enter the draft, but the Jazz need to be in a position to land him if he is. By the way Duke University Coach K (who knows a thing or two about basketball, and basketball talent), has compared Jabari Parker to Kobe Bryant, and also to Grant Hill. So I guess you could get excited about winning 35 games which would give the Jazz about a 3 to 4 % chance at the #1 pick, and about 0% chance of making the playoffs, or you could hope for about 20 wins and a 25 % chance at the #1 pick. I know where I stand.

    As always good post David..I still cannot figure out why Lucas is playing at all. He should be on the inactive with Harris. Jazz must be showcasing Rush. Don't think anyone would take him except if it fits the math..
    One thing the team is doing this year that no one has mentioned is learning how to close out games. This was something Jazz were horrible at last year. One of the better things for the kids. This is where Burks and Burke come in. They don't quit and ain't scared of nobody..

    He didn't miss any meeting. It's posters like you who forgot how to root for the current Jazz team. Remember, the Jazz may still get your chosen one even if they win 35 games.

    Here are the Utah Jazz goals for the 2013-2014 season.

    1. Lose and get the most ping-pong balls in the draft lottery

    2. Get lucky and win the draft lottery

    3. Hope Jabari Parker decides to enter the draft.

    4. Have the common sense to pick Parker in the draft.

    None of these are a guarantee, especially with Trey Burke in there putting a wrench in the gears. I'm thinking he must have missed the team meeting, when the Jazz were setting the team goals for the 2013-2014 season.
