I wanted to say that Mitchell is definitely a better player than VanVleet. But looking over their statistics VanVleet is really making the most of having no Lowery this year. They're pretty similar in all statistical categories including player efficiency. Still I think Mitchell is a bit better...
I am in the same boat as a lot of people. I think we have a chance to win it all. But I think it requires more luck than any other current contender. If we do not improve before the trade deadline I think were gambling an opportunity away to win a championship. Just like last year.
Some people give media too much credibility. Especially garbage sports media. They make up rumors and put out so many opinions pieces every year. I'm not sure Mitchell is a Jazz man for life. He has definitely cooled off on his love towards Utah over the years. But I call bs on these rumors...
Yeah, not having and whiteside and dray are about the same. But Klay just puts them a level above us. I think we could have played a better. But I'm just not convienced that we have a title team right now.
Glad that were doing this again. My predictions are as follows:
I was looking at Butler's salary and noticed we only have him under contract for two years? How do we keep him if he's an unrestricted free agent? If he blows up he will want a larger role. As well we don't exactly have a lot of financial flexibility over the next 3 years.
Hmm, these rankings are actually pretty accurate in my opinion. I'm not seeing many players below Donovan that could be considered worse than him. The only ones I see are Trae Young and Jason Taytum. Maybe you could argue Devon Booker or Chris Paul? With Gobert I see him being more valuable...
Deron, has been with that other girl for awhile now. So it's not surprising his wife found someone else too. I've encountered his wife before and she seemed crabby and the rich standoffish type. So maybe a change of pace is good for both parties.
I know most of this forum isn't very found of him. But it wasn't very long ago that him and Rudy were competing for DPOY. So now we have the DPOY and someone who has the potential DPOY caliber skill backing him up. It would not surprise me if this works out.. That we are by far the best...
