My Christmas wish list - amnesty Raja Bell, DO NOT KEEP Tinsley, sign Howard,
please!!!! Come on O'Conner & Greg Miller, let's put a team together to
compete. Do what you have to do to sell tickets and make your fans happy. You
can afford a million here and a million there extra.
Hopefully all of the negativity regarding the whole lockout issue has passed
because I'm one fan ready for NBA basketball to resume. Being that we have no
quality teams in our state in college basketball I'm hoping that our Jazz will
fill that empty plate. This young team has me excited. I believe without
doubt that they can and will be a serious contender for a title soon. We have
the neucleus of everything needed to do that. Size, depth, athletism, and I
believe shooters that will be better than expected. Add to that a very quality
coaching staff and my cup runs over with excitement. Go Jazz, work hard, and
I do not approve of signing Josh Howard and see no point in bringing him here...
we have gordan hayward, cj miles, and Alec burk already, why would you bring in
a veteran to take time away from developing your young talent? Plus Howard is
coming back from a serious injury and he's had marijuana trouble in the past.
Doesn't seem to be the high character type to fit at Utah. I'd rather see
Re: Old Timer - Ya, I'm excited to but we won't be a contender until they can
bring in some quality free agents, and get a superstar point guard. Name a team
that has won without a star point guard. It's a guard's league now. should be
fun to see them play though and watch them come together. I think within in a
2-3 years we can compete in the conference but don't think Miller's have the
money or the O'Conner has the vision to see this go all the way.
Re: UgottaloveMaxie How about the LA Lakers. Mr. Fisher is hardly an
"all-star point guard". He is serviceable and competent, and if the
Jazz could get that from Mr. Harris and Watson, and develop an inside defensive
presence, which they have not had in a long time, they could compete very, very
What has happened with Tomic? We don't even hear his name,any more. I know the
Jazz already have too many bigs but this guy was supposed to be the future.
i think...a trade for Kirk Hinrich would be good for us....Hinrich isnt your
typical PG...but he plays good D and can stroke it from deep...plus he has
height for the position...he could be the starting PG...Devin Harris for Captain
Kirk + a draft pick?
I would agree. Where is Tomic? In May, there was info on his resigning with
Real Madrid and then nothing. I would urge everyone to be aware of Bradley Beal
of Florida, Gatorade high school player of the year 2011 from St. Louis
Chaminade (David Lee alumnus). He will be "one and done". He should
be put on a Christmas "must have" list. He would be the finishing
touch on a non "rebuilding" Jazz squad with Favors and Kanter being
the major chess pieces. I would like to see Tyler Hansbrough (Sikeston, Mo.,
UNC) and David Lee be considered for trades.
