Ute gymnastics does not fall in "pretty good" category. Top eight in
the nation is more than just pretty good (it would be reasonable to say they
were number 7 given their score in relation to 4th place finisher in other
semi). As a comparison, Georgia finished #8 in final football rankings last
year. They were more than just pretty good.
The 2018 BYU womens volleyball team was much better than pretty good, they were
a final 4 team that had the bad luck of drawing the eventual champion in the
semi final game. The beat Stanford in a pre season game but lost to them in the
@Vonsvomit, You do realize both Gobert and Mitchell are products of trades that
the Jazz made. The jazz are willing to spend money these days. I do agree with
the fact that the Jazz have a habit of losing assets for nothing tho. In recent
memory, both Hayward and Millsap walked for nothing. Trying they're hardest
to re-sign Hayward isn't good enough. Indiana made Paul Goerge tell them he
is gone so they had time to get a great player back! Also, not being willing to
trade Dante Exum, WTH! Maybe Connely is overpaid, but combine Rubio and Exums
contract and that is worse! At least Connely is great when he plays, more then
can be said about our guys! Also, other than Mitchell, why do all our draft
How can the Jazz be a good team in a bad spot, when they are a bad team that
sadly put themselves there? How can the Jazz recreate the good old
days of Stockton to Malone when Jazz management gets rid of decent players every
one to three years? Case and point is Gordon Hayward, the one contender that the
Jazz management let slip through their fingers. Same thing happens to other Jazz
players . They are traded away in gross almost criminal incompetence every time
the Jazz do not want to pay a players salary. Same thing that is going to happen
to Mitchell, Rubio, Gobert, Epke Udo, Favors and other players on the Jazz
roster. Then comes the rebuilding. That takes at least 20 years before the Jazz
even look likes a team that plays ball. And so the circle of life goes in Jazz
land. In defense of the Jazz players, the Jazz has some good talent
that could be molded into great talent if kept to play for the team. The Jazz
has potentual to become another championship caliber team like in the days of
Stockton to Malone. In the case of the Jazz, it's the team owners and other
staff to include coaches that need to leave and never come back. Then, and only
then can the Jazz become great.
Coach Quinn should insert Grayson into the lineup and have him dog Hardin end to
end, shadow him until he losses his temper and gets thrown out of the game.
Need is to make Hardin work harder, all game long. Grayson is a pretty good
defender, bordering on excellence, and should have plenty of energy to burn. The Jazz team mentioned by Rock that almost won the NBA Championship,
they did win it, except for the infamous non-call push off by Jordan. That Jazz
team was awesomely excellent, so I take exception to anyone saying they were
just "pretty good." The author of this article takes liberties to
extend his "pretty good" theory that are a stretch. I look
for the Jazz to win tonight's game.
Yeah, that's pretty much it. My Utah roots have tied me to a lifetime of
"pretty good." Once Stockton and Malone couldn't seal the deal, I
fear my best chance for a title disappeared. I guess I could force myself to
care about BYU rugby or their volleyball program.The Jazz, more than
probably any team in the NBA (or major pro sports in the US for that matter)
need good luck to field a contender. We just have to hope some superstar wants
the chance to lead a backwater team to a title (unlikely) or draft another guy
who turns out to be twice as good as expected.
Rudy doesn't need to get a mid range shot. How about a five footer. The
rest of the team needs to start getting and taking them. One NBA player I like
to watch is Demar Derozan of the Spurs. He knows how to get a good percentage
shot. He doesn't spend all of his time shooting the long bombs.
Brad Rock is a pretty good sports writer but great at always emphasizing the
The NBA is just getting boring. It's just a 3 pt game now.Doug
We desperately need another super star scoring option and Rudy needs to develop
a mid range shot.
