Out of nowhere, the Utah Jazz are both frightening and fascinating and there is suddenly no limit to their potential. -SBNation 8 march, 2015. ***I booed the Gordon Hayward pick, and clapped for Trey Burke. Now let me tell you what I think the Jazz should do this year.***
Hayward's Holy Grail is 3-pnt shooting consistency. If he ever finds it, then he very well could be an all-star.
This is very speculative (if I had league pass I'd go back and review), but I think the problem with Hayward's shot can be summed up thusly:
1. the purposefulness of how he sets his feet. If he gets too "tender" here, the shot is off.
2. the over-thinking that goes into the position of his elbow... instead of just trusting and pulling the damn string.
When these two things are fluid and fast, then he is absolutely solid. When the slightest hesitation creeps into either, then he can be a mess.

Dear mister Favors. Please ignore all these ridiculous rumors of you being traded. They are complete lies made up by bad reporters and bad Internet posting people.
fwiw, gh's total ppp for that 16-game stretch is 1.08... 5 pts per 100 better than the team as a whole. he has been our most consistently efficient offensive threat, and yet his role has been cut back so we can watch foye continue to not guard anybody.
Haywards are best player I bet you ne thing he's Allstar by year five. He got better at everything every year what more do you want? Topless pics like raja I bet is all.
He's good, he's young, and the Jazz need perimeter players desperately. I think the issue is that nobody is sure trading Hayward gets you a player better than Hayward. Pretty simple.
"I will say, almost everything. And I didnít bring it every night. But I think most everything was a frustration."
Is it because the Haywerd is untouchable?
I could eat a peach for hours.
well not to get all racialist but certain players have more value in certain markets that go beyond on-court stuff. for example jeremy lin and yao have higher value in a big asian market like houston just because of the merchandise/tix sales from fans that like to root for asians. i could see the jazz seeing this angle and keeping it in consideration when doing trades. probably not very high on their list of priorities, but maybe in the back of their minds.
TS% counts 44% (or something) of every FTA as a FGA, which makes it a better indicator of a player's shooting efficiency. However, even it is not a perfect measure of offensive efficiency because it doesn't count TOs as wasted possessions.
PPP adds TOs in with the FGAs and .44FTAs. If I remember right, it even subtracts a player's offensive rebounds. This does give an advantage to bigs. I would like it way better if instead they somehow went through the play-by-plays and subtracted FGAs that resulted in an offensive rebound instead, but that's impossible to do just from box score data. Maybe synergy does this with their PPP. I'm not sure.
Let me adjust your post a little by saying that perhaps his trade value to other teams is diminished because of his -well- race.well not to get all racialist but certain players have more value in certain markets that go beyond on-court stuff. for example jeremy lin and yao have higher value in a big asian market like houston just because of the merchandise/tix sales from fans that like to root for asians. i could see the jazz seeing this angle and keeping it in consideration when doing trades. probably not very high on their list of priorities, but maybe in the back of their minds.
