Something even better than this happened to the Jazz's future tonight...
Kirilenko's contract expired!!!!Halelujah!!! It's finally gone!
The Jazz win when they hit 3s.Hayward will keep right on improving
and I am sure he will work on his 3 point shot over the summer. He is best at
the SG but versatile. Lets hope the Jazz get 2 more good draftees. This team has a lot of talent. They need to learn to play together. They also
have to improve on D. Hayward is a decent defender. He tends to stay in front of
his man and that helps AJ, Millsap and Favors.
If I was at ESA on draft night I would have booed Hayward, I hated the pick. My
first thought was: great we've been waiting 6 years for this pick, it had
potential to be the number one overall, and they just wasted it on a skinny SF
from a mid major who can't shoot threes. At the mid way point of the
season I thought he had potential to maybe one day be a starter, but not a real
difference maker.But the kid I saw the last 10 games looks like he
could be a potential All Star. There is no doubt in my mind that the Jazz made
the right pick. We finally have a good 2 guard! 34 points off of 17 shots with 4
assists is ridiculous.Having a 6'8" 2 guard who can play will
be a huge advantage down the road. He also seems to have great chemistry already
with Favors. I can't wait to see this team next season.
Looks like the Jazz have found there starting 2 man, Next season CJ & Sap
must come from the Bench otherwise trade them.Draft needs a starting 3 and
a backup 1Unit 1,Harris, Hayward,
Barnes/Williams/Vesley/Jones, Favors & AJUnit 2Watson/Knight/Jimmer , CJ, Evans, Milsap & OkurInsurance Fes,
Weaver & JeffersGoodbye - Price, AK & ElsonWe
should also look at any trades that improve our team - only untouchables are
Hayward, Favors & Evans - the rest are availble if it improves our team.
Altough Okur - I would trade for draft picks
I was one of the very few who was excited when the Jazz drafted Hayward. I
thought it was fun to watch him play with Butler. I am glad to see he is doing
well and hope only the best for the Jazz player that was booed at his draft.
Keep it up next year!
I think he looks better with the babyface from Butler. This beard thing doesn't
work for him IMO.
I just read the article from the archive from June 2010 when Jazz drafted GH.
Read all your comments. Many of u bashed KOC and Jazz Front Office for drafting
GH. Well...wat u say now?? No wonder todd never post here anymore!
Re es4:You inspired me to go back and see what I wrote, here it is:"I really like KOC, I thought what he was able to do last year was
brilliant, but I really hate this pick. I hope Ill be eating my words in a few
months, but right now I feel a little sick." Words never tasted
so good and my sickness is long gone, hopefully KOC can pick the right guys
again in this draft. KOC really is one of the best GMs in the league and we are
lucky to have him here.I think KOC recognized that Hayward's work
ethic would convert his raw talent into production sooner than later. I'll
definitely have more faith with who we pick up in this next draft.
@ es4Ya if you read a lot of articles from the archives you will see
plenty of Jazz fans saying things they have no clue about or you will see how
dumb they can really be or you can see how easiily they contradict themselves...
Like people saying let Millsap go... what are you guys serious you
are the same people last year and beginning of the season who were saying
congrats Booz is finally gone now we have a real Pf or how some of them were
saying Millsap was there man.. now for no reason they just want to let him go...
this is why fans have no clue as to what to do with a franchise im not saying I
do but im not that dumb to say let our hardest player just go...You
guys do realize undersized or not 17ppg, 7rbg, 2.5apg, .9bpg, 1.3spg ooo and
with a 53% shooting and .39% at the 3 you guys are straight ridiculous...
@byronbca...to me your comments were ok as u were just expressing your
opinion...however many comments were directed at the Jazz front office. It
reminded me of when the Jazz selected Stockton(nothing but boo's). I for one
believe in this organization and the product we put on the floor.@king
I booed Hayward's pick as loud as anyone. I was wrong. He still has a long way
to go, and teams will have a scouting report on him next season and won't
mistake his awkwardness for being slow, but I am cautiously very optimistic.
Manu is a very high ceiling, but there are some similarities, but again, that's
a big burden to put on a kid.Anyone who wants to get rid of Sap is
insane. We would never get close to fair value in a trade, he probably has the
best non-rookie contract in the NBA in terms of value per $, and oh yeah, what
about the loyalty thing we heard so much about with Matthews?
BillM75--Thank you for being one of the few who can admit that they booed. I
would love to ask every one of those people how they feel now. Some
people think that Milsap can play the three if he loses some weight. That would
be awesome if it could happen. I would really like to see us draft Derrick
Williams if we can get him. He could make an immediate impact.I
want Kirelenko back, but for about 1/3 the salary he is making right now. I
also think he may need to come off the bench. That makes things complicated for
Corbin. If that is too hard for him to handle then we should let him go.
With Milsap - it dosn't matter if starts or is the 6th man - He still will get
his minutes and be a good player for us. His $ now are value for moneyI do hope we can get Williams Harris, Hayward, Williams, Favors
& AJ - startingWatson, CJ, Milsap/Evans, Milsap Okur - BenchAlso our 2nd draft pick plus Weaver, Fes & Jeffers for Insurance
i think i started posting here....by the time...Hayward was drafted...i was one
of the guys excited we got Hayward...i watched clips before the draft...and saw
someone with crazy skills...he has simple moves yet effective...he always use
his jab step effectively...try noticing that when he gets the ball of a
curl...plus he can chase down a fast break layup and block it...so this one
game...the dude stall the ball from a butler guard...Hayward chased
him...blocked his fast break layup...they didnt recover the ball..but that
play...had me sold...as well as his very simple yet very deceptive step back
three...he would be an awesome player here in the league...he may not be with
the ranks of Kobe Lebron Wade and the like...but he would be one of those guys
you'd be happy to have a teammate...i was a fan from day one...if only i can get
my hands on some Hayward jerseys here
