This has to be the weakest logic used in any sports article in the history of
sports news. The Lakers are number 2??? Keep telling yourself that if that
makes you feel better. But here are the real questions. How many championships
have the Jazz won? How do the Jazz stack up compared to the Lakers in playoff
games overall? To compare any other statistic is absolutely pointless. You can
talk all about the Lakers and Jazz record since the 80's but let us keep in mind
who has the better record THIS YEAR. The Jazz record at home is good, so what?
They still didn't have home court advantage which would have been key to any
hopes of them winning, which they will not. They just do not have the talent on
the court to pull off a series win against the Lakers.
I'm trying to understand the point of this article. Is it just to give Jazz fans
something to be excited about or is it rubbing it in by saying they are the best
team to never win a championship. I'd rather be the worst team to win a
championship than the best team not to win one.
What happened 25 years ago has little impact on the team today. I would rather
see an article with great analysis by some current scouts for other NBA teams.
Then we might learn something new.
I totally agree with all the previous posters... Being great at home in the
regular season means nothing.. Post season is what counts... All them teams that
have worse home records than the Jazz have won how many Championships the past
