I'm not in full meltdown mode.
(first update) Offseason to-do list:
1. Let Mo, Foyeeee3, Al (s&t?), Watson, and Tinsley go.
2. Re-sign Carroll
3. Draft McCollum, Schroeder, and Giannis (leave the latter two in Europe for a year [maybe two years for Giannis]).
4. Sign Tony Allen
5. Try to keep Millsap. If that doesn't work, explore s&t options.
6. Remove Corbin. Hire Brad Stevens or SVG.
7. Sign Calderon to a one-year (2 max) deal, or see if the cash-strapped Lakers will let us absorb Nash's last year.
I got that feeling again last night that this is our year. The two teams we struggle with arent dominating us like usual(Lakers and Spurs).
We are built for the playoffs. We can do this.
This reminds me of when my team the Giants came out of no where to win in 07. All the fans were down on them and calling for trades and the coaches head. Then BAM!!!! They became elite and surprised everyone. Last nights game was a mental break through for this team. I believe that game is the stepping stone we needed. Everyone who has been bagging big Al will be loving him come years end.
Something magical is a brewing.
I'm all in.
No more complaining about a no trade. Who's with me?
Jazz can do this.
i dream it too but, in my dream, both al and millsap torn their acl and mcl. Enes Kanter and Derrick Favors averaged 40 minutes per game. Burks is the finals mvp. Hayward injuried in last game of finals against cHeat.
Thats the spirit.
I wouldn't say its impossible for the Jazz to win the championship. Unlikely yes, but we have a lot of key ingredients. Plus we are a mismatch. For a lot of teams.
Look at the best teams.
Miami - sorry ass big situation.
OKC - same thing pretty much.
Ya they have Ibaka and Bosh, but they aren't that big. OKC I think is weaker without Harden. Miami has to rely on Lebron playing clutch and he doesn't have the strongest track record for that.
San Antonio we just want to stay away from.
Our biggest weakness is a stud to close us out, but what if Burks emerges as that guy, or dare I say Al takes us home a few games.
A lot of things would have to fall in place, but its not impossible. We would just have to play outstanding team ball to do it.
