Does Hack's ridiculous optimism bug anyone else? It bugs me.
Hell no. While I'm a fan and will not stop following the team. This team has become pretty much unwatcheable for me. 1 blowout win does not fix our offense. Coaching. Or rotations.
It does not make the team more exciting to watch. And it does not get minutes for the players that I like watching play.
So I'll get back on the bandwagon (whatever the hell that is) when even 1 of our real problems are dealt with.
Yay. Off season successful. Now time to see how good these young guys are and enjoy the ride.
I don't post here nearly enough to know who troll/joke/alternate accounts are.
So I just assume he's legit. lol
C'mon smile everyone. It was a fun win.
I know. You just dont want to get hurt again, so you wont open yourself up again.

I'm not back on the bandwagon. I continue to wish for a trade as it's clear Favors and Kanter should be playing more and Burks and Foye should have their roles - and minutes - reversed. The ONLY reason for Favors NOT getting 25-30 mins is if his plantar fasciitis is causing him too much pain or if it won't heal unless he rests.
That said, the team still has enough talent that I expect them to win 45 games. I predicted a possible 50 before the season, but that was based on more improvement than what we've seen so far from the Young 4, a bigger impact from Marvin and now, of course, Mo will miss another 6 weeks.
IF the Jazz can go 3-3 over the next six games (wins at Phoenix, Charlotte and Detroit), Utah has a good chance of making a nice run into the all-star break. After the game at Detroit, Utah will play 11 of 15 at home. Only games that look really tough are Miami, @ LA Lakers and then OKC. Good chance of winning 10-11 games. I won't be surprises if the Jazz have a record around 29-25 at the break. That's only 3 off where I had hoped they'd be.

I'm hardly boycotting but I'm not going to drink the Jazz Koolaid until the starters and bench essentially switch places.
It started with Earl [Watson], Randy [Foye] and Marvin [Williams]–the veteran guys. I thought the young guys did a good job of following their lead getting us off to a good start. - referring to the Jazz/Bobcats game on 3/1/13
Earl, Randy, and Marvin started the first quarter 0-3, scored a whopping zero points, and finished with a turnover in the first quarter.
Your head coach of the Jazz ladies and gentlemen.
When the team is turned over to the youngsters im in.
Back on the bandwagon because we beat a bad road team?
Whoopie! 8th seed sweep got me hot n' bothered!
