Then put it this way:
GS partially caters its offense around getting Thompson reps from spots at which he can succeed. They started doing so early in his career, and their efforts continue.
Hey, Hayward... you want the ball and a pick? Sure, we will give you a couple per game, but only after you show the ability to hit this curl thing and hit 3 pointers from any damn place after our Jefferball breaks down.
Not convinced Thompson is better than Hayward, just more aggressive in shooting. He gets the to the FT line half as much and he plays about 10 more mpg.
Andrew Bogut will never be healthy, so he will never be a top center again.
Aaron /Gordon\ Hayward Bandwagon Driver
And if their offense is so "catered to getting Thompson reps from spots at which he can succeed" then why is a 40% FG shooter?

You've got to be joking. The GSW model? Are you drunk? The GSW model used to be Jessica Alba. The Utah model is all about team basketball, hardnosed defense, and taking your lunchpail to work. Tanking two out of every three years is not a model to which I want my biracial children to aspire.
*UB's consecutive non-faggygaydick post streak is now up to 3.
It's safe to say Hayward would be less gun shy over there in SAS. We could make him less so by not shoe-horning him into a system that isn't that effective anyway.
Maybe he's still learning? Maybe he isn't that good? One thing is for sure though, the Warriors will know what he can do.And if their offense is so "catered to getting Thompson reps from spots at which he can succeed" then why is a 40% FG shooter?
Then they'll **** everything up because they are the Warriors.
Ok based on a google image search San Fransisco models vs salt lake models it is not even close. San Fran kicks slc butt Twice over. Would up load pics but not very good at that.
Second I HATE mark Jackson and refuse to say he is a good coach. Anyone who says other wise should have their ******* tarred and feathers then have it ripped off. (ok that might be excessive)
Let's look at a comparison
Pg - Steph curry vs vet mo wlliams IMO the pg position is one of the most important positions on the team especially for the jazz. Curry, though injury prone, is tons better then more and curry is the heart of that team.
Sg- thompson vs burks great shooting vs slasher more exp vs less exp. we don't know what burks can do. Again Thompson is a good shooter.
Sf - Barnes vs Hayward this is one spot the jazz have drafted well. I like Barnes but I think Hayward is and will be a better pro. Hayward just needs to get more consistent.
Pf - Lee vs millsap great move now with lee. He is not the defender millsap is but great scorer and rebounder. Again better move.
C - bogut vs Jefferson goes to Jefferson because bogut hasnt played yet. But bogut lee is better than Jefferson millsap.
Bench Landry/jack/rush vs foye (I know he starts) favors kanter jazz bench is still all potential where gsw has a nice mix of talent. I know Marvin Williams is in the mix but to be honest he is just flat out a disappointment.
With that all said gsw has the 1 thing the jazz don't a good point guard. If the jazz had Steph curry they would be a top 4 team in the west. We have mo Williams and probably won't make the play offs.
Thompson has had a good three-point percentage and free-throw percentage both years; can't say the same for Burks. But I don't think that's why TyCo isn't playing Burks.
Despite far fewer minutes ("only" about 1200), Burks is producing at about the same rate in most categories--except Burks is doing better in TOs and (fewer) PFs. But that's largely against the second string, in Burks' case.
I still think that Corbin should be giving Burks 8 or 10 minutes at point while Mo is out. At times, the relatively slow Tinsley and Watson have been burned. Tinsley did well down the stretch vs. the Clips, but more height seemed to slow down CPee3 slightly--and Burks athleticism would've helped on Crawford, too (although he was burning Hayward plenty).

Someone asked if a center can still be a difference-maker in today's NBA, and Shaq said, "No. Not shooting jumpers."
