Looks to me like they will be lucky to win 20 games!
Once again, I have to visit another website to get the game stats. Desnews is
such a fail.Morgan, you are right. Even if the Jazz gets its
defense right, there is no scoring leader. I am tired of all of the Hayward
talk to see him only put up 15 points.
It appears the Jazz hierarchy are not going to show Corbin the door just
yet....I have faith, however, that they will remedy that situation in due time.
Ty may be a wonderful person, but his coaching is much like his playing
was....mediocre.There's another matter I'm not happy
with....They engaged John Lucas III to be the "veteran" to school Trey
Burke....My question is, "Veteran of what?"....The only place I'd
say he was a veteran would be in air travel...Wikipedia lists 12-14 teams he has
been associated with over his career....and he hasn't stuck with any of
them.....Is that how we are to define "veteran"? Last night I determined
to ignore Corbin and concentrate on Lucas.....He dribbles too much ...He's
a mediocre passer, and a poor defender. He's living on his father's
If we set a record for the lowest FG% in season maybe they will give us a few
more pingpong balls in the draft to get Wiggins?Heaven knows we will
deserve it if this shooting continues very long into the season.Make
no mistake, this is going to be a long ugly season with lots of frustration.
There really just isn't anyone on this roster that is going to consistently
deliver on the court each game. It is going to be like jekyll and hyde all
The Millers refuse to get Jimmer. I wonder why?The commentators
last night said that outside shooting is their missing component. They could
get Jimmer cheaply and put him in for strategic shooting.Yeah, they
say he's not a defensive gem, but neither are the Jazz guards.The Millers are Ute fans?
With the first pick in the 2014 NBA draft, the Utah Jazz select, Andrew Wiggins,
University of Kansas
Jim,There are average defenders, such as the Jazz guards. And then
there are liabilities on defense, such as the Jimmer. If the NBA
ever allowed teams to switch every single change of possession, I see Jimmer
sticking with a team. But since that wont ever happen, there is a great Euro
future for Jimmer, where defense is optional
They had a great lead early, that lost it quickly. They had a chance to catch up
in the last minutes, but no plan but run and gun. That resulted in a lot of
missed shots. Hard to watch.
Hopefully Jazz fans will keep in mind what they were saying all summer. This
year is about growth and development with the strategic ability to add needed
pieces to the mix going forward. We are in a great position to evaluate what we
have without expectations to be a playoff team this year. Next year with great
draft picks and tons of cash we can fill in what weaknesses we discover this
season. There will likely be a lot of ugly games but I like our ability to
rebuild. Hold on to your hats Jazz fans because it will be a crazy ride.
When does the regular season start?
The worst WL record in the history of the franchise in UTAH (1979-80 24-58) as
well as NO (1974-75 23-59) will be seriously challenged by the JAZZ this season.
@ There You GoChallenge the worst win/loss Jazz season ever?
That's possible but I think the biggest weakness for the Jazz is you have a
bunch of young guys that haven't played a lot together. That said, these
young guys have talent and I think they will improve as the season goes along. I
think from the start of the season to the end of the season the Jazz will be the
team with the most improvement. Still not enough to make the playoffs, but they
will get better.
There You Go Again: "The worst WL record in the history of the franchise in
UTAH (1979-80 24-58) as well as NO (1974-75 23-59) will be seriously challenged
by the JAZZ this season."I'll bet it's not
"seriously challenged" but the JAZZ win either way. I think this is at
least a 30 win team this year, but I'm almost rooting for worse. You have
to be blind if you can't see the young, undeveloped talent on this team.
As long as they consistently compete and are increasingly fundamentally sound, I
hope this team loses a majority of close games. Draft well and be smart in FA,
then, the next 5 years get very exciting
