Jazz Basketball: Ya' gotta loathe it, baby!
On the Safari for Jabari
Jazz management are too patient, too conservative, too dull, too boring. You cant sit on your hands forever. You have to take some risks at some point. You cant play the conservative patient card forever. Just like you cant be too risky and too aggressive. You need balance and the jazz are too far on one side of the spectrum. They try so hard to out think everyone that they just screw themselves.
Just because Lindsey isn't as impulsive as Jazz fans, and doesn't blow everything up after every loss, doesn't mean he doesn't have a long term vision for this team.
If anything I know about Spurs execs, is that they're not impulsive.
How many teams make trades this early in the season? Most wait until right near the deadline to get anything done.

He needs to **** or get off the pot. Hey mods, I got two positive reps to get me off of 7 and I am still on 7. Looks like someone else needs to get off the pot.
Didn't KOC once say Jazz and everyone else are talking trades all year long.
And they will make a trade if the offer is good.
Jazz probably have not had any decent offers for any of their players including Jefferson or Millsap.
And they may not get any. Every other team knows Jefferson and Millsap's flaws.
Why would they offer Jazz a lopsided trade in the Jazz favor?
I'm still trying to wait to pass a judgment with any real totality (there are a lot of things that have to align on the market, after all [notwithstanding that Al should've had his ticket punched out of here at minute 49 of Game 4 last year]), but I can say with complete confidence that if the Jazz just end up letting the FAs walk this year and not making a trade, we will have seen a dazzling level of incompetence and totally lost opportunity.
I don't know where I read it but there was somethin that said KOC gave Dennis Lindsey a long list of moves that he wouldn't be comfortable with him making and that KOC is stopping DL from doing a lot of things. I know it's hard, but don't blame DL. Blame KOC.
