Don't catch alot of tv games but reflecting on guard play of the last 2
regimes (DWill group vs current group), the current crop never instilled or
caused fear w/ the ball in their hands like the way DWill did. You just knew
DWill was gonna will that ball into the hoop, long-range or on a drive. The Jazz
is gonna have to get that mojo back, be it Mo or Jimmer. Have to get it back
thru an offensive threat despite misgivings w/ D (Jimmer). In the long-run, you
can teach D but not an offensive touch. Look how far Jefferson's gone w/
his zilch D skills. I see he's still getting in the game & finding
Yes, Williams may currently be playing at a higher level right now than
Fredette, but there's no upside. How many more good seasons does Mo have
left? How many good seasons could Jimmer have in the future?Basically it's a question of immediate, average, short-term impact versus
strong potential and upside for the future. I personally think Jimmer could
become a franchise player given the right development and time (and NOT by the
coach who sent Jeremy Lin to the D-league - Sacramento's current coach).
Sure, Jimmer may still turn out to be a bust, but I think it's
a worthy gamble.
Mo would like to come back Utah. Don't be surprised to see it happen.
I got one better than these two...GET the Weber State Star!
Yeah!The jazz don't need any player that has a history being
able to shoot and score and make things happen, we need the same
old jazz type player safe, boring, mediocre, older who can only get worse,
that the jazz always have had.There is nothing more important than
maintainng that just baerely making the playoffs, and getting another medicore
draft pick, signing another player at end of thier career, and never having the
right players to win a championship.Even after the 80s and the 90s
the media still think that we can wait for 15 years to have another turn at a
run for championship which the jazz have never had the actual talent to win. but we can pretend. again.Or the jazz can get
the right players that CAN win a championship. who need magic
johnson, isaiah thomas or jordon, duncan, or kobe etc, when you got
stockton, dwill, hansen, bell, russell, harris, cjmiles, broken down hornacek
or... mo?see the difference?
I would rather see Drajic or Brooks over Williams.
I agree with Noodlekaboodle. Brooks might be hard to get because of his contract
situation, but he is 27 and Dragic 26. I did think, though, that Mo was a keeper
when he was here. This summer might be interesting, after all.
Great idea!Let's spend our cap money on the 65th best guard in
the league. If that doesn't make us a championship team, what will?
Gee when I read the title I thought maybe the author was going to suggest
bringing back the only free agent this year that could really make a
difference-D-Will. Nothing against Mo Williams, but his presence on the team or
Fredette's would not add a single additional win.
Would love to see Mo here again, but I don't think he'd start.
He'd just replace one of the other two backups.The Jazz still
need a start-quality pass-first PG. Harris came on well later in the season, but
still showed that the Jazz need a pass-first PG.Jimmer wouldn't
fit well in Utah yet--he's too inexperienced and needs to be on a team
that's weak enough to play him. I'd love to see him with the Jazz just
so I could watch more of his games, but he'd better off in Sacramento for
now.I expect Jimmer to have a much better sophomore year. He showed
enough improvement in his rookie year.
We don't need either of these guys to run the point. One's aged and
the other is never going to be what people want him to be. PG is
going to be a problem for a while. No offense to the guys that are here now.
They are great guys but none of them are going to lead us to the promised
land.The Jazz need to make a trade for a decent, pass-first PG that
will fit the system better, or get lucky and have a team leap-frog the Warriors
so we can get their pick in the Draft and pick up Marshall (I haven't seen
Lillard play so I don't know if he can be an efficient floor general or
not. His efficiency stats aren't great, but that could be misleading...)
It would not surprise me to see the Jazz make the move to try and pick up one of
the promising point guards available in the upcoming draft. They have a lot of
assets with which they could make such a move happen.It would fit
right in line with the youth movement they have been working towards over the
past couple of years. While a proven vet would be great addition, the ones
mentioned in the DNews over the past week are likely to cost a lot more than the
Jazz are willing to spend.
I don't think Fredette is a fit with the Jazz. He is too small as a SG and
not fast enough as a PG.Mo Williams is easily the best choice but
even he would only be a bandaid until you find a younger more permanent solution
but Mo is better at setting up team mates than Harris is.The Jazz
will roll the dice on a PG with their next draft pick...whenever that is.
Dragic at point...or Alec Burks...Trade Devin Harris and Al jefferson for Eric
Gordon and some fillers...
Jimmer is a bust. Not even worth giving up a second round pick for him.
Jimmer is a bust. Will not even make it five years in the NBA. To small to short
and to slow!
And yet there must be a reason teams keep letting Mo Go.
Glad to see the Rock back in my dog house. I am a Williams fan but he is not the
answer for the Jazz. Jimmer is the man with Dragic my second choice. Don't
forget the man in New York. Williams is only going to move for a lot of money
and being a long term starter.
