    Thinking of trying out for the Jazz

    I am currently weighing the advantages and disadvantages that I have as a player and how they affect my chances of making the team. So far, I like the odds.

    Cons

    - Out of shape.
    - Haven't played serious basketball in about a decade.
    - I played the PF position in high school, but that might be too undersized for the NBA at 6'5.
    - Bad fundamentals.
    - Not really willing to put forth the effort to succeed.



    Pros

    - I'm 30.


    Fingers crossed.

    Damn, rookie mistake.
    Please don't bench me and let the veterans who make more mistakes than I do get out on the floor!

    Roger's lying about his age tho, he's like 36 and stuff.

    Maybe I should try out, I haven't played ball for any school, but I am at least serviceable as a ward ball backup center. Unfortunately for my chances, I am only 6' tall, which works out great for ward ball, but I would have to play the point or the 2 in the NBA. I am a decent passer, but a marginable dribbler at best. I am Roger's age which means I can be a contract holdout, and I am terribly out of shape and injury prone, just like Roger.

    I could probably take Tinsley's spot.....

    You'd probably get playing time ahead of Burks.

    I dont know. You didnt say you were bad at defense. Do you at least shoot a lot and miss in the clutch?

    Sorry, didn't go over that. Really I am more of a defensive player, I don't shoot unless I'm wide open, so I don't think I'd have a chance. Definitely not a chucker.

    ......I suspect the Jazz could pick up a couple of Wal-mart greeters, who could put up better numbers than some of our clowns!
