    So far, the Jazz have been extremely inconsistent. For that reason, it is really hard to get a read on the team. I have no reason on just why this is happening. By game 20-25, there should be a better read on what is going on. The inconsistency is obvious. The reasons are not.

    Maybe the media and everyone else can move past a story that is nearly a year and half old. Gordon Hayward is gone. Long live Donovan Mitchell.

    @ JSB
    I used to work in a city government with someone who openly talked about his pride in being an abusive fan. He would even scan seats below him at a sporting event, first seeing if an empty seat stayed unoccupied, and then moving to that seat so he could be more easily heard by players of the team he disliked. About a year after I heard him say that, I was up on the roof of our building, looking down on the employee parking lot, and I happened to see this same employee do something that really made me question his character. He backed out of his parking spot, and then drove up to and right past the stop sign at the intersection of the parking lot and a busy road with a blind curve to his left. Personally, I think abusive fans are unhappy people who believe that life has been unfair to them. They vent wherever they can.

    I've seen a lot of poor sportsmanship and cheating (coaches, players, fans) in high school sports while at the same time being told that the justification for participation high school sports is that it builds character. The best high school players end up playing at the university level where there is even more poor sportsmanship. At the professional level the players behaviors on and off the field is even worse and the fans' behavior is beyond an embarrassment. What is there about sports that brings out the worst in people? Why did Utah adults feel justified in booing Hayward? Why do sports seem to be a laboratory for bringing out the worst in people's character?

    ...interesting how so many Jazz players go somewhere else, and are not as good ever again in their career. Hayward will be very lucky to make another all-star team even in a major market.
