I'm not certain what the hold up is, but it's time for the Jazz to get
Raja's buyout done. He doesn't want to be with the team and in all
honesty the Jazz don't want him.Goodbye Raja, sorry things
didn't work out, but in hindsight it was mistake the Jazz need to get
Goodbye. Nice knowing ya. Provided much toughness at times and helped this team.
No hard feelings.
This makes me sad because I've always been such a big fan of Raja Bell. But
things are what they are, and I wish him well in his future endeavors. Just get
on with it whatever it is.Go Jazzboys!!!
Some of you will remember that a couple of years ago Tinsley was on the outs
with the Pacers and told to stay home.I believe he sat out the entire year
before it was settled. But he was young and now is a model citizen. You would
think Bell would learn form this. No matter what Bell is at the end of his NBA
life.Jazz hold the trump card. He will still get paid but his wish to play again
might be done. His agent needs to get whatever he can and be free. If not Bell
will be another year older next year and trying to make a go of it. His attitude
and bad mouthing got him where he is at. If he would have been nice about it he
might of been gone at the trade deadline. So now he is learning who has the keys
to the car..
From the article we learn somewhat Bell's side of the story. I wonder what
the Jazz's side of the story is. I would hope that there are two sides to
each story. Best of luck to Bell. I don't hold hard feelings, I hope he
can move on too.
Raja was a tough, in your face defender who could hit the 3 at important times a
while back, but he is near the end of his career now. I wasn't surprised
when Bell voiced his displeasure at a lack of playing time late last season...he
was always a competitor and competitors need to play. Now the Jazz have good
depth at the 2 position and some of the players play good defense, too. I wish I
could watch the upcoming training camp battles for starting positions. Go Jazz!
He repeatedly passed up open 3 point shots and missed them when he took them.
What is the debate?Raja's time is past and he still believes he
can contribute more than he actually can. He announced they had a buyout but he
has not taken it since he realized there really is no market for him to go get
any money anywhere else so this is it for him. So at the end of the day he is
haggling for every penny he can get because he is not worth half of what he is
getting paid this season by the jazz but he is going to get what he can because
he is done.I'n tired of reading about the Jazz having to deal
with his whinyness though...that is for sure.Grow up Raja, you
agreed to the buyout so take it and quit trying to hold the team hostage.
I was excited when the Jazz picked up Raja, but I didn't see him do
anything that really helped the team this time around. He wasn't good
enough to be a starter and Corbin recognized that. Bell didn't earn his
playing time, and he whined when he wasn't on the court. If the Jazz trade
him for a Taco Bell gift card, they will get the better end of the deal.
@DustinId rather trade Bell for a bag of cheetos...and that would be
