"He can say what he wants...we know we have a great organization. He got his stats...and as always, he got the L, too." - Trevor Booker
dutchjazzer is an idiot. dont encourage him with a 'fair enough' bro. the difference between those teams and this one is they had 2 legit hall of fame players on the team. put 2 HOFers on this team and it's back to "JAZZ BASKETBALL" or whatever the hell you wanna call it. tl;dr: dutch is a dbag and HOFer make everything look better. also: dutch is a dbag please neg rape him.
However, I'm not convinced "Jazz Basketball" can exist in the modern NBA. Not unless you build a team with a defensive mind-set and play unselfish offensively. Nowadays players respond better to a Run and Gun chucka-iso-thon that has become the modern NBA... bleh. Even Sloan's later D-Will teams had lost that Defensive edge that Sloan was known for...
i wanted TyCo gone before most everybody here so i am no fan of his. I think TyCo does have an identity, it's just not one I/we particularly like. you said it urself, lots of isos for the bigs. that's an identity bro. opposing teams know that utah is gonna pound the ball in the front court and build from there. and you said it urself that u seem to miss sloan ball moreso than jazz ball whatever that means and that sloanball is impossible to fully implement nowadays. i agree with u on getting tyco outta here but dont get fooled by dutch he is just a BIG AL hater. hes trying to blame big al for everything and wishes big al would get injured and die. you sound reasonable and i semi agree with u but dont get fooled by dbagdutch
if i was a 6 foot guard i would think twice.
favors jumps out and bodychecks the guard on the 3 point line.
which makes gaurd thinks twice after that he runs back to his man.
what does it acomplish? you may ask?
it fricking breaks the offensive flow of the guard. so the offensive set has to be reset.
kanter does it also.
so give kanter and favors 30+ minutes. and jazz have that defensive edge back.
it will be contagious. before you know it millsap will be playing with that fire.
gordon, (burks, watson already plays with that fire).
it will be contagious.
great defense from a center is contagious. seeing as they are the last line of defense. so yeah give favors kanter 30 minutes PER.
and watch millsap defense improve. don't know if al is able to improve his defense in limted minutes.
we dont need jefferson offense.
favors millsap and kanter/burks are way better scorers.
we dont need lazy al's rebounding.
burks is just as a good rebounder
kanter favors and millsap will pickup the slack.
once teams know jazz play gritte physical defense. jazz will win way more games
