    How long has Exum been in the league? It’s unfortunate that he’s had so many injuries. I just didn’t see that much when he was healthy. His role dimished to the point he didn’t play. His asset is his his first step, his biggest problem is rotational defense, he is clueless on team defense. He is a great athlete with marginal basketball skills. A terrible early first rounder.

    Mitchell played well in the summer league against guys that aren't in the NBA anymore also, and is only about a year younger than Exum. Of course no one can expect Exum to come in at the end of a injured year and have a huge impact or take minutes but there's little doubt in my mind that Exum can still be a more than capable backup PG right now and possibly more in the years to come. I wouldn't call that optimism drinking the Exum cool-aid but I think it's foolish to have written him off already, especially after how well and improved he played in the Summer League alongside Mitchell.

    Well Little Andy it's good to see someones still drinking the Exum cool aid. I don't think he gets playing time. Who do you think should get less minutes? I know you wanted Rubio to go earlier this year, glad that didn't happen. With Neto hurting his hand, either Rubio or Mitchell gives up time to Exum, a guy that rode the pine when healthy. Yes he did play well in the summer league against guys that aren't in the NBA anymore.

    Actually, it's going to be six years before Mitchell can opt to leave. The only way he leaves sooner than that is if demands a trade.

    A lot can happen between now and then, so for now, let's not worry about things that may never come to pass.

    Best rookie the Jazz have had since Darrell Griffith.
    I am going to enjoy the next 5 years with him on the team before he seeks greener pastures.
    Still hoping that he stays a long time though, but I am being realistic.

    How long since the Jazz have had a true closer?

    Bright skies ahead!

    Just think, they are only one and a half games out of 4th place! Of course there are five or six other teams in about the same boat. ESPN gives the Jazz a 69.9% chance of making the playoffs, and the Clippers and Nuggets, who are virtually tied with the Jazz right now at 47.7% and 35.1% chance of making the playoffs. Wouldn't it be something if they went as the 4th seed? As they say, "it could happen".

    Mitchell did something that only Michael Jordan used to do. Took the game into his own hands. I am excited to see him play with Exum. Improved bench play starts then. Lets see Simmons do what Mitchell just did.

    In the NBA of today it seems as if it is always about the star. For the Jazz the star can be a lot of different guys. Makes it hard to clue on who to stop. One night Joe, then Jae or Ricky or Rudy or Derrick or Donovan or Royce or Raul or Jonah or.... Love teamwork!
