Waaaaa Waaaaa maybe someone should call the Waaaaaambulance for the utah jazz.
Poor little millionaires...their job actually requires them to get tired, and
maybe a little sore and beaten up. It's just too much for the paltry sums
they're being paid......you gotta feel for the little fellas...
It is as Jerry Sloan used to say about the NBA....the players are only playing
48 minutes as a maximum in a game and the rest of the day, they are resting. So
what's the problem? Get in shape and quit crying about it. And we don't need
the writers to rag on subjects that are total baloney. The NBA is a man's game.
Wow. Have any of you played a high intensity game of basketball?
@TylerYeah, I have, actually; with a squad of [young] former Univ.
of Kentucky players--against other top recruit players--back in the late 80's
while playing in a city league for Lexington, KY. The games were fast, furious
and extremely competitive. That didn't stop me from enjoying my experience and
doing my best.
HCB63Then you would know, first hand, that your body becomes beat up
throughout the process. Add a lack of rest then you get injuries.I
am just sick of reading posts from people taking any chance to take a swipe at
players. Football players sometimes have 3 games in 10 days. You hear how it
takes a toll on them, but you won't hear fans complain about the whining.
Tyler you are right on. The ignorant comments here about how a millionare
shouldn't be banged up is insulting to educated Jazz/NBA fans. I
have major issues with the richest 1%. CEOs, owners and ball players are not
free from my rants. Still, with this condensed schedule, everybody is hurting
and careers will be cut short by wear and tear.I would prefer a 50
game schedule that starts in November, with no more than 3 games a week ever.
This schedule would be plenty of basketball with a fresher product on the court.
Less players would conserve energy and dog it, but it's a fairy tale. There is
too much money to be made, and hey, this is America.
@ Anonymous InfinityYou say "get in shape and quit crying about
it' but you don't understand. Nobody is in good enough shape to be pounded 5
times in 7 days.When are you gonna get in better shape? After you
destroy yourself on the court? The games these players play night in and night
out are more than any commenter here could put up with for one night.
