i'd rather jazz dissapear so I could focus on cheese
Playoffs. Unless we're picking in the 1-5 range, we don't need any new young guys. I just want the young guys we have now to get experience.
I think it's pretty obvious that most fans on this board want to see a couple things change. 1) Al gone. 2) Ty gone. I would also like to see Sap moved. Ready for the young guys to play full minutes, win or lose.
I voted nay. Call me what you want but imo, it's the smart way to go for the long haul. It gets Ty fired. It causes the FO to re-think re-signing Al. It gets us a better pick this year and let's be honest, we need that. By getting a pick around #12, we could do such and land Burke and also land a solid 3 or reserve big with the GS pick. Those two along with Hayward, Favors, Kanter, Burks as well as Tinsley as a backup/leader and Millsap would be a hell of a fun eight men to roll with next year. After that, we'd just have to dump Foye and/or Marvin.
Playoffz of course.
If GS was up for it (I doubt it), I would change the terms on our trade, to where they could have the pick this year as long as it was unprotected next.
I'd rather development of the youth regardless of immediate outcome. But what else is new been saying that since the start of last year.
Playoffs here we come. Pass the damn Kool-Aid
ask me after the trade deadline. if the jazz stand pat I say dont make the playoffs. the young guys wouldn't learn anything because they would play. if there is a trade that opens up playing time for the young ones then hell yes. they need playoff exp.
I'm torn with this, but I think if the Jazz are in the playoffs, our young players (except Hayward) may get stuck with spot minutes. I'd rather get a lotto pick and add one more young piece to this group, whether a PG or wing athlete. If we make the playoffs, we're likely picking 18 and 22 or something, which is going to be iffy in terms of getting a front-line talent.
I don't think the Jazz would last more than 5 or 6 games in the playoffs. We'd basically be extending our season 7 - 10 days, and we'd basically be investing the season in a bunch of players who likely won't be here next year.
Players I like in the 2016 draft for the Jazz at #12:
Skal Labissire, Thon Maker, Furkan Korkmaz, Timothe Luwawu
I voted "Yay", because it is important that we get Al Jefferson playoff experience.
This year I'm not so sure because the draft class is not as good (unless you're picking in the top #3). So it's pretty much too late to play the tank game IMO.
GIVE THE PEOPLE
WHAT THEY WANT
The only way big changes are going to be made and the mistake of reupping Jefferson and Millsap to long-term contracts can be avoided... is if we miss the playoffs.
Will making the playoffs two years in a row and an 0-8 record benefit the team in the long run? Or 3 years and 0-12 record?
I'd like to think we have a good shot against the Clippers to get one game at least.
