Jazz games.
    Jazz have only had one stretch where they've had more than one day off. They've had 4 back to backs with the fifth tonight.

    What are you talking about?

    Hate to be the elephant in the room...

    But I think we're just tired of this team.

    Millsap? He maxed out probably a good year or two ago. He isn't getting any better.
    Big Al? Like the last year of Boozer, we all know what we're getting and we've lost all hope that he might actually attempt to play defense.
    Mo? Yep, we know he's a SG in a PG's body. Our other PGs are way past their primes.
    Hayward? Has been disappointing.
    Burks? What the hell is going on there?
    Favors? Talented we want to see him more. Unfortunately, most of us are realizing that he's more Tyson Chandler than Karl Malone.
    Kanter? Inconsistent.
    Marvin Williams? Usually invisible on the road.
    Foye? A nice 3 point chucker who does little else.

    What this team really needs is a good trade. Gotta find a way to unload either Millsap or Jefferson. We've been talking about this for 2 years now. Pretty obvious that one or both of those guys need to be traded to make room for Kanter and Favors.
    Lakers Suck.

    So, you're done, right? We have already found out that your boy Wes (whoever) is also out. Just want to keep current. I don't know if you have actually given up on the team again, yet.

    Oh. Ok. Didn't know that you were concerned with me. So if that's the case, I'll explain.

    First of all, I was never "on" this team. I don't understand what you mean by, "out." I mean, what expectations did you have for them? If they win a few games, great. If not, it's not like I was expecting them to really do much.

    Secondly, I'm so busy with school and work right now, I really don't care too much about the Jazz. I'll watch them if I have free time. Besides, it's still too early to get into basketball mode. Football is still going strong, duh!

    Thirdly, yeah, interest is dwindling for many people for the reasons I posted above. It's still football season, this team hasn't made the necessary moves to truly compete, and we've seen what Millsap and Jefferson can do. We're still a 6-8 seed and we're not developing the youngins. It just feels like we're renting them (Millsap and Jefferson) out right now instead of building and developing a championship team. Feel free to agree or disagree with me. Because, after all, you're supposedly concerned with how I think and feel.
    Lakers Suck.

    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

    IAWTP...I'm not sure why I re-upped by NBALP to be honest because I have little to no interest in even watching the games.

    ...don't know if you caught this on the General NBA thread but here's the/your/our problem in a nut shell! The NBA product is UNWATCHABLE for more than 5 minutes max! Explained very nicely by this sports writer from N.Y. City. As he correctly points out, even if our favorite team won 60 games......it would still be unwatchable and depressing!

    Uh. Actually it proves my point.

    When the hell has Kanter ever played till the 3 minute mark of the 4th this year?

    Let alone a 9 minute stint.

    Then I guess we need to bench both Paul and Al, because neither of them have been boxing out well, or playing anything resembling good PnR defense.

    I was simply making the obvious point that there's more to deserving playing time than just scoring the ball. I realize that's obvious, wasn't trying to be a prick.

    The Thriller is right.

    I am sick of this team.

    To tell you the truth, I'm already sick of the next team too.
    Lindsey should skip the next phase and just blow this thing up.

    That would make things more exciting.

    I'm just too smart to not know what's coming and know how it will play out, and I don't like it one bit.

    Are you an out of state/overseas guy? The only remedy for my occasional Jazz burnout in my case has been to get away from watching them on T.V. and to go to more games in person and just enjoy the whole experience. Or just watch them only when they play other teams you're also interested in seeing play too, that might help put some anticipation back in until they start playing more compelling basketball- whatever that means to you.

    I really don't care as much as I have in years past. The Jazz are always my favorite team I care about the most (SF Giants, TB Buccaneers). This year I'm not feeling it.

    Kanter, Burks, and Favors may not be the answer, but I'm ready to see if they are. I've seen enough of Big Al, and even Sap. Big Al and Sap will NEVER EVER EVER (get back together) win us a title or make us elite.
    Making them the focus of these team is laughable, and soul crushing
