2. That playoff run sure taught D-Will and Boozer how to win more playoff games.
3. #8 GSW beat Dallas.
4. I hope we lose tonight.
5. Continual tanking is fool proof actually -- 5 of the top 7 picks in 2006 were Bargnani, Adam Morrison, Randy Foye, Sheldon Williams, & Tyrus Thomas. Obviously the Jazz should have tanked D-Will's rookie season and drafted the 2nd piece of their multi-championship duo.
Once we accept our limits, we go beyond them.
While I still wish we have nabbed Leonard instead of Burks- I think it is really premature to want Vucevic over Kanter.
One positive sign in Kanter's favor is Vucevic is averaging 4.7 FGM and 9.7 FGA per game. Kanter makes 2.5 FGM and attempts 4.6 shots per game.
In other words Vucevic shots about 48% and Kanter is shooting 54%.
Subjectively Kanter seems to create in the post better than Vucevic and his IMO Kanter's jumper is better.
Build a man a fire; keep him warm for a day. Light a man on fire and he will be warm for the rest of this life.
Repeating the same actions and expecting different results is the definition of insanity.
There was never much doubt Vuc was going to be a serviceable center. His ceiling is just about 4 stories lower than Kanter's. By the time Kanter is 22 and a starter, I think we all agree he can put up 10 and 8 with his eyes closed.

Magic are easy to beat if you match their intensity, but the Jazz will not.
Are you watching this pregame segment about the Jazz opting to visit hospitalized veterans instead of kids? That's so like them!
Big Al and Foye already given up lay ups
