Wow, the other night I posted almost the same post as Holy and Red, including
the example of "pro" wrestling and it was denied as off topic.. Haha,
moderator that night must have been a Houston fan. NBA is a joke folks. It is
totally about entertainment. It lost its "sporting" designation years
Totally agree with Holy-Schamoly, especially with the example he gave. As much
as I love the Jazz, I get the feeling that the NBA, in general, has a feel of
professional wrestling, as far as legitimacy is concerned. Certain referees
will give certain stars such blatant preferential treatment that it is hard to
watch, especially when it comes at the expense of our own team.And,
as hard as losing is to swallow, we as Jazz fans should feel happy, overall, for
the incredible effort the re-built Jazz put on the floor this year. Keep in
mind that last summer when a certain player strung the Jazz along, then took
additional unnecessary time to announce where he had signed, ruining the
Jazz's chance of signing a big name free agent, things looked pretty bad.
But with the emergence of Mitchell, a bonafide superstar-in-the-making, things
look much better this spring.Here's hoping to the success of
the Jazz for next year and in the coming years!
Playing Houston without the Jazz starting point guard didn't help. Not
hard to imagine Houston playing without Chris Paul.
Jazz out of the playoffs and the LDS Church drops scouting on the same day?
Today can officially get no better!
I hear the NFL and MLB are making changes this year..In football, you will
not be able to tackle any "Star" QB like Tom Brady..In baseball
the strikezone for all "Star" players will be 12 inch by 12 inch...They figure if the NBA can get away with "Star" treatment, they
should be.This is why I stop watching the NBA. I follow the Jazz
because they play the game, the way it suppose to be played. But the NBA has
turn professional basketball into professional entertainment.No
other league has "Star" treatment.. the rules applies to all players.I do not care if the officials makes good or bad calls, as long as they
are consistent on both ends. NBA officials are horrible at being consistent.What a joke.
One thing yelled at me- the Jazz are 2 players short of being a championship
team; they just did not have consistent offensive production and depth when they
Again, despite injuries, the jazz could've won this game. Ingles
needed another game 2 performance. Where did he go?Crowder= 2/11. He had
way too much time. Quinn should've ridden the performers.Only
Burks and Mitchell performed like it mattered. What a shame.
All things considered, a good season for the Jazz. With Donovan Mitchell on
board; things look very bright going forward. What a Playa.
This is a special team.Next year will be greate.Go Jazz!
Game, set, match, rockets...yes!
@ Holy-Schamoly-What Baloney - Kaysville, UTRight?? If it
weren't for those darn refs, the Jazz would've swept Houston!!
The fix is in...the NBA got who they wanted for the Western Conference Finals.
They have the best officials in the world for following a script. It's
called "Star Power"/"Home Cooking" and Harden can foul and
injure Mitchell and steal the ball and get a layup while everyone on the floor
with a whistle just swallows it (one example of hundreds).
Strange how the Jazz played so well on the road two of the games but didn't
play well at home.Fun game to watch up until shortly after Mitchell was
sidelined with injury. Mitchell and Paul both put on a second half clinic.
O'Neale should see an increase in minutes next year, and Burks might have
earned a return with a pay cut. Get better soon Donovan, all have a good summer,
and good luck to Dennis Lindsey during upcoming NBA draft. @Sports
NutzI wouldn't be surprised if the three players that you hope remain
with the Jazz are all gone by September. It should be interesting.
Yay Rockets! H-town is partying tonight. Hope Mitchell is OK. Jazz played tough.
Hope this carries over to next year. Rockets need to beat Golden State and
Cleveland for another championship!!
Jazz gave it all they had. I would have loved seeing the difference Rubio would
have made. Hopefully Exum and Favors come back along with Thabo. Young team
only going to get better.
