    What's with all this personal banter? Did you see kanter last night. He is a damn tank!





    Edit: I only read the first couple posts. Kanter has been brought up already

    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
    This is how i feel 100%. we are on the same page revolution.

    Unfortunately? If he turned out to be Tyson Chandler, I'd be ecstatic. I've been saying that his defense and rebounding is exactly what is needed and any offense he gives is gravy. I'll take a guy like that all day, every day.

    ...sounds to me like your a prime candidate to join my group of growing members who are cynical to an extreme about NBA basketball! Actually, it's a lot of fun! Much more exciting than actually watching the pathetic basketball on display by today's NBA players! You can join without paying any dues, either! Just scour the internet and find articles that are critical of the NBA slop they serve on local and cable T.V.!

    ....so spend 10 times more money to see in person what is pathetically flawed on T.V.??? Fact is, the NBA has turned the game into an "experience" both at half time and afterward, because the product they have on the floor is so bad!

    What do you guys think of this?

    Just a few months ago he was talkin about how great and wonderful Duncan was and how he didn't see anyone beating the Spurs (before the series had even ended). Now this:

    http://www.deseretnews.com/article/8...l-victory.html

    "I don't feel bad at all about this loss," Jazz center Al Jefferson said. "I think we did a great job against all the odds. We kept playing, never gave up."
    He's the #1 reason why I'm tired of this team. He's the new Boozer. I know what to expect, the selfishness, and the limitations. When will we learn what Boston and Minny learned?
    Lakers Suck.

    You guys are such whiners. Watch the games, root for the jazz and be happy when they win. Or GTFO

    When we traded for him I believe everyone had hoped or assumed that he was going to be that "franchise" big man who were were going to build around both offensively and defensively. I'll be down with him being Tyson Chandler as long as we have someone else who can score...

    If Kanter can be that offensive punch, then we'll be fine.

    I'm so tired of the same ol same ol. I know what Millsap and Jefferson can do and where they'll lead us. I'm ready to unleash Favors (30+ mins or until he fouls out) and Kanter 25+. I want to see Burks play at least 20+ and probably even start. Lets get to work to build and develop a contender... A vision completely lost this year by management.
    Lakers Suck.

    I too find myself caring less and less about the games. I feel like the Jazz management has become passionless since Larry passed. Greg only seems to care that the team is "good enough" to not lose too much money and win a little more than they lose. As a Jazz fan, the one thing I want is a championship. Either for the Jazz to be competing for one, or building so that they can. This team is doing neither. Its treading water. Sure, its not dead on the bottom of the pool, but it ain't no Michael Phelps either.

    Its time cut the Cord on Millsap and Jefferson, on Watson and Tinsley and on coaches who would rather play Demarre Carrol over Gordon Hayward and Alec Burks. The goal is a championship, not to be slightly above average. That means DEVELOPING your youth and finding out what they actually are, not hoping that watching Big Al from the bench will somehow turn them into a capable scorer. Al and Paul will NEVER lead us into championship contention. Its been obvious for at least two years. No amount of complimentary pieces will change that fact. The Jazz have to acquire or develop a star who can lead this team. Paul and Al are preventing that from happening, so they must go.

    Until the Jazz prove to me that they are serious about putting together a team that can contend, my interest will remain peripheral at best. I'm not going to pay to go to a game, but I'll show up when my work gives me tickets. I want to feel like the team is actually has a plan and is improving. I haven't felt that in a while, and until I do, I can see myself getting emotionally invested in them.

    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.
    LOL, you're so predictable.

    Trade Jefferson/Millsap.

    And do something which fans have been wanting for 2 years now, PLAY AND DEVELOP THE YOUNG KIDS!

    Remember those OKC comparisons? When will we start to play like OKC and play guys like Burks, Kanter, Favors, major and meaningful mins?

    I really don't blame Greg for the current state. Even though Larry loved the Jazz he still was quoted as saying it much more important to make money, than win championships. Saying that comment says something about him. Still he did love the Jazz, slightly behind money, and power.

    Greg is cut from the same mold, only he is younger, and will take more chances. Sloan left, Deron traded. A lot of happened since Greg Miller took over.

    I don't think he will wait as long as his father to fire a coach.

    3 pages of no interest. Irony, anyone?
