    I don't regard them as accurate, particularly the further down the list they are ranked, but outside of Roger Belle, they do seem to be ranking our players roughly in order of ability.

    Hence why I said 'almost'. My point was having 5 starters in the top 150 isn't an achievement, but an expectation. Having more or less would be noteworthy - such as last year, when we started players like Roger, Howard (#216), Miles (#250) and Carroll.

    not to mince words, but you'd probably agree that "almost every" would not mean that 2/3 of the teams. If someone said that 33 of the states voted for president X, you probably would not say "almost every state voted for him.... you'd probably say "most"

    The rankings started back up today. They are at 135 and still not a Jazzman. Fingers crossed!

You have to balls to say that when you pulled Alec after 16 minutes against LAC and Kanter got 19 minutes toinght?

    I'm thinking Mo Williams will be the next Jazzman, followed by Hayward and Favors. I'm thinking Jefferson will be slightly ahead of Millsap.

    Why are you crossing your fingers? What prize do we win if they rank all of our remaining players in the top ten?

    veterans tend to get a lot of reputation votes, though, so it wouldn't surprise me if mo was #3. not that i would agree... but it wouldn't surprise me.
    check out the jazzbros.com blog for more on the jazz.

    I have a crazy feeling Hayward will have the Jazz's highest ranking. I know, right?

    Nothing.

    What prize do we win when the Jazz win games?

    Its merely satisfaction. Why you gatta take away what little fun we have during the offseason?

    My predicted order for the remaing Jazz players is Hayward, Favors, Millsap, and Jefferson. I'm not even going to guess what ranks they'll have.

    I slightly disagree with you. I think that it will be Hayward, Favors, Jefferson then Millsap.
