    So much of the game is about mental toughness, and I think Goodwin has it.

    The way he was blocking shots, running out, making steals, making passes and crashing the rim was fearless.
    Players I like in the 2015 draft:


    Umm... Lyles. Yeah, Lyles.

    He has more mental toughness than MKG .. not kidding. He's just unconscious on the court. We're only 5 games in and he's already one of my all-time favorites just for his killer instinct.

    So, barring trade move ups, we will have no chance to draft him with the Warriors pick?

    It's early, but Goodwin looks like the highest rated guard overall after Shabazz. He could go Top-8 and be out of our reach. There are a bunch of skinny bigs in this draft class, and they probably won't all go ahead of Goodwin.

    Here's to hoping Goodwin or Poythress fall to us. They're currently listed in our range, but it's hard to imagine them both staying there.

    Curry needs to get injured.
    Dennis Rodman has dominated Rebounding Percentage more than anyone has dominated any major stat.
    Rebounding percentage correlates more strongly with winning than points per game.
    Rodman has the highest Margin of Victory differential of any player since 1986 with a remotely similar sample size
    [Rodman's] Win% differential is #1 of the 470 players who qualified for the study—by a wide margin

    I could see him hovering in the 7 - 10 range. He'll max out because he's a 6'4 SG. He seems so much bigger than that on the court, but that's what he's listed .. so I don't see him going higher than 6, tops.

    High probability.

    Let's hope so.

    The Jazz seem to be sorely lacking this from everyone on the team. DWill had it and I think that is the last player that really showed it.
    Cy is a Baker, he doesn't work fast food. Don't make that mistake, he doesn't like it.

    I could not possibly agree more that the Jazz have been leaderless for years.. even DWill was more VOCAL than great leader, imo.

    This team desperately needs a new coach and a STRONG leader.

    Didn't Beal get drafted 3rd overall as a 6'4 SG (who didn't even play as well as Goodwin has currently at any point during the season)?

    I agree with all of this. My point about DWill was that he took on the tough match ups as well as taking the tough shots to win games down the stretch. Hayward is getting some sort of a 'tude, but nothing compared to what I want to see on the Jazz.

    As much as I love Poythress, his lack of that 'tude is not what the Jazz need. They need someone who wants to dunk over anyone on the court. Do you know anyone like that?

    Yea, by the Wizards which is not saying much. Don't forget Waiters going #4.
