Who does Minnesota take at #2 if they get to redo the pick?
"Bottom line is I want to go somewhere where guys are willing to win. It's not all about the pay checks, somewhere where the franchise is going in the right direction" - Trey Burke, Leader
If I recall Carroll said the exact same thing when he was first signed by Jazz and playing spot minutes last year. He said it was something Tony Allen taught him. Its just his mantra.
I agree; but what do you expect when Corbin names Derrick Favors the starting 4 to start last season and then caves after all of 2 games because Millsap didn't want to come off the bench?
If you're a vet and you're a squeaky wheel, you get more minutes by complaining - it's just how it is on this team.
This game kicked ass. Didn't matter who was on the floor, they executed and were exciting to watch. Too bad Kanter racked up fouls so fast. Fun game, would watch again.

Carolinajazz we just **** all over your new team....
one of my favorite self-confirming jazz fan myths of the year is that DMC is a good defender. he's actually not. there is a difference between being the energy-and-hustle guy and actually being a lockdown defender. he's definitely the former, not taking that away from him. but every time the jazz have asked DMC to be the latter, he's been lit up. his lateral movement isn't good so guys get away from him way too easily, and he has slow recognition when it comes to taking away angles.
simiilarly, hayward is not a great defender either. hayward has great defensive ABILITIES, which is why everybody thinks he should be the guy guarding durant, kobe, cp3, lebron, etc.... but the fact is, he does very little to make guys uncomfortable.
burks is quick enough, but fouls too much. foye is a joke on the defensive end.
our best wing defender is marvin, and it's not even close.

Also, with regards to harp's comments, he noted for a second time in two games (can't remember the first) when talking about Burks that "ya know, there are 29 other teams watching, so make your playing time count..." or similar. Has harp said that in reference to other players or just burks? He must be chatting with burks on the side and this comment has popped out on air...
Coincidentally, when the Jazz started Favors in Jefferson's place and he played next to Millsap, he went off and the Jazz beat a pretty good team after getting embarrassed in their first two.
