    It was definitely time. When he first started playing for NJ last year, he actually looked OK. But after two or three weeks you can tell his body just couldn't take the pounding anymore.

    I bet he'll end up coaching at some point. Perfect candidate.

    Bad news... Unfortunately, Memo has decided to end his professional career officially.

    As I said in another thread he seemed like a good guy who did good things for Utah. I wish him nothing but the best.

    I, HeavenHarris, hereby pledge to my fellow JFC'rs that I will no longer give out neg-reps. All it does is cause negative things, like fights, drama, bitching, ill will, bad feelings, etc.
    Love, not hate, is the answer bros and moes.

    LOL Lol breaks his pledge 5 days later hahahaha

    Lakers have what 15 or 16 NBA championships and the Jazz have zero. I know championships are a team thing but you have to have great players. I loved Memo when he was healthy but he is not a HOF or even multiple years All-star. Besides his time with the Jazz wasn't that long. I think the Jazz have way too many jerseys. The only guys who should have their jersey's are Hall of Fame type players (Pistol, Malone, Stockton, AD). I don't think Hornacek or Griffith should be in the rafters.
