    Can one of you young whippersnappers put a KOC face on this?

    Thought I'd point out some other jazz history... History of how the jazz handled the mail man. He came off the bench his rookie season and then the jazz traded Dantley to let Malone start. That's also part of jazz history as well.

    Funny, the front office tends to forget this kind of history.

    Malone only came off the bench for five games in his rookie year and those are the only five games he ever came off the bench during his career.

    "When everybody says that you have to do something," O’Connor said in an NBA TV interview Monday afternoon, "that’s when you probably don’t."
    I've deconstructed this and cannot for the life of me figure out how this makes sense. Seems to me the best teams end up with the least trade rumors.

    This organization had better figure out what the hell it is doing. The thing that scares me is Greg is probably such a dingus and KOC such a contrarian that they might not do anything just to make some kind of moot point.

    Why would the best teams be involved in trade rumors? They have the best players and generally have no need to mix anything up. But I agree Lindseys comment made no sense either.

    Kanter not mentioned in that article?
    Kanter has more potential than both Favors and Gordon.

    We must be even more patient with Kanter. Check back in 5 years.

    Man, I feel sorry for Lillard and the way Portland is completely screwing his future not teaching him the value of having his ass glued to the bench.

    This is so stupid. Do you honestly think kids now days give a rats @$$ about earning or learning from the bench? We live in a new society. Yes it is and should be the right way for a young guy to do it, to earn his keep. But that is not the society we live in. Now days they want it now. And all the patient talk only leads to one thing. The player walks once their contract is up. My fear isn't that their time won't come. My fear is how will they react when another team talks to them and reminds them how Utah didn't trust their skill set and had them on the bench for 3 years.
