    Senator Mike Lee: It's about the Right

    Fortunately for you, TBS, background checks do not disarm Americans, and the slippery-slope argument is weak. There are tens of millions of guns ALREADY in the U.S., and nobody--from Obama on down--has seriously talked about taking guns away. And I'll back you up on any intent on taking guns...

    Senator Mike Lee: It's about the Right

    Except the "fact" (Senator Lee's statement) that you cite is an opinion, not a fact. A law graduate such as Mike Lee to spew such distortionist drivel is truly dangerous. And except that the discussion over gun control stemmed from real, factual people having died when existing laws didn't...

    Gun Control

    Um, there are 20+ dead children in Newtown, Connecticut, who show how "assault weapons" or assault-like weapons such as the AR-15 fire rapidly, even if it's not automatic-rapidly. Jared Lee Loughner killed 6 people and wounded 13 others when he was able to fire plenty rapidly with a...

    Gun Control

    Um, there's actually plenty of data to support that it does work. Such as the fact that there have been more mass murders since the assault weapons ban (albeit very weak) was lifted. There were a (short-term) record number of people killed in mass murders in 2012 (>150). Case studies include...

    Gun Control

    Except that it would've made a difference in Tucson; Loughner wasn't apprehended until he had to stop to reload. Loughner obtained his weapon(s) legally; if there had been a ban on high-capacity magazines, lives would have likely been saved. Some people (including that Republican hack Lindsey...

    Jazz vs Nuggets @ Pepsi Center (1.5.13) at 7:00 PM Mountain Time / Telecast on ROOTSPORTS

    I can forgive the pandering to "vets" for the starting spot if that vet is Millsap. And starting AJ for the scoring is just too alluring. And in this game, Favors came in for Millsap at the 6-minute mark in the first quarter. Then Millsap came in for Jefferson about 3 minutes later. I like...

    Jazz vs Nuggets @ Pepsi Center (1.5.13) at 7:00 PM Mountain Time / Telecast on ROOTSPORTS

    Quickness would be nice, but that wasn't the problem tonight. Iggy schooled Burks repeatedly, but that's more experience than quickness. Corbin thought it would be fun to see how Foye could fare against 6'6" Iguodala. Gallinari was scoring at will--without much resistance (although at least a...

    What IF Poll: Would Sloan agree to come back and coach the Jazz?

    "Hot hand", if you're referring to a player who is shooting unusually well on a given night, is not necessary for winning, although the "hot hand" might be part of the optimal rotation that TyCo is ignoring. Randy Foye probably thought that he was the "hot hand" on the 28th, going 5 for 9 from...

    What IF Poll: Would Sloan agree to come back and coach the Jazz?

    I also remember Fesenko bringing a level of defensive intensity that the regular rotation tended to not have, and that in game after game, when Fesenko was in, the opponents' point production went down and the Jazz closed deficits (or built leads). Foul trouble was not the reason that Fesenko...

    GSW Model vs JAZZ Model

    Klay Thompson played 600 minutes more in his first year (and twice as many minutes overall) than Burks has played so far in one and change. I reckon that an extra 500 or 600 minutes can be a big difference--especially for a big man (which would apply more to Kanter and Favors) as well as a...

    Utah Jazz VS LA Clippers Friday 12/28/12 @ 7:00 ROOT Sports 1280 AM/ 97.5 FM

    At least Corbin is carrying on the Sloanian tradition of live-or-die-by-your-starters. Key difference: Sloan's starters included two top 50 players for most of his time here. When those top 50 players left and Sloan continued that flawed strategy, success slipped--most of the time. More...

    Utah Jazz VS LA Clippers Friday 12/28/12 @ 7:00 ROOT Sports 1280 AM/ 97.5 FM

    The problem down the stretch was Big Al with the stupid ticky-tacky foul. Hayward was a smart choice. If TyCo were smart, he'd give Hayward and Burks 10 minutes each at the point--especially against PGs who are faster than Tinsley and Watson. Which comprise most of the PGs in the NBA.

    Say the all adjectives for Corbin Master of the Coaches !

    Yep, which is to lose a winnable game if the right rotations were used.

    UTAH vs PHOENIX,12/14/12 @ 7 p.m. MST

    In short: Ty's lack of strategic substitutions.

    Should Mitt release his tax returns?

    Yes, it was legal. While nobody would expect Romney (or anyone else) to not take advantage of tax breaks such as this one, "legal" doesn't mean that it's good for the country. The reason that it is relevant is that it is a sign that tax deductions are a significant part of why the U.S. deficit...
