    Mistborn or Game of Thrones?

    Mistborn Pro: It's lighter, more entertaining reading than ASOIAF. Pro: It's finished. Possible Pro: It's basically PG-13. (Also a possible Con.) Con: After the first book there's a major drop in quality. ASOIAF: Pro: It's deeper, richer, infinitely more complex than Mistborn. Pro: Everyone...

    What am I supposed to say? I have no interest in the personal attacks or flame wars. I don't know him, I have no opinion about him. I hope he is well.

    I don't know what your problem is with me, and I also don't care. But the fact that you've formed such a strong opinion about me, without knowing anything about me, doesn't exactly do anything to make me think you're right about Deron Williams. Be well.

    Please don't presume to speak for "we Jazz fans".

    I don't think so. If I'm wrong, please feel free to link the article.

    John Stockton was also uncomfortable with the press. When public figures are private people, the press finds it rankling, but to make a value judgment about a human being based on the fact that they were disinclined to open up to the press is something I will never understand. Deron gave us...

    Come on, Jazzfanz, stop spreading this irrational anti-Deron mythology. You're better than this.

    You have heard literally thousands of positive things about him. He was here for 6 years and received nothing but positive press, and positive comments from coaches and teammates, until the day Jerry Sloan retired. If you want to believe he's a bad human being, nobody can stop you. Remember...

    House of Cards: Season 3 *Spoilers*

    I was profoundly disappointed in season 3. The writing is substantially worse, and less smart, than it was in the first two seasons. The only reason I can think of for changing the basic nature of Frank Underwood, his marriage, his political savvy, is to intentionally frustrate the audience...

    Hayward has agreed to an offer with Hornets

    What? That's not at all what I was implying. The Jazz were able to add talent to the team in several ways over the life of that contract. We signed good free agents, we made good trades, we drafted okay, we kept our own free agents.... (I did talk about this in my original post in this...

    Hayward has agreed to an offer with Hornets

    There will be fewer teams with cap space, and all the rookies from this great 2014 draft class will be on the free agent market. Hayward will be an afterthought in the market. He is not going to get the max again.

    Hayward has agreed to an offer with Hornets

    Which player was available, who wanted to come to Utah, that the Kirilenko contract prevented us from getting? I'm not making any assumptions about Hayward wanting to take a paycut. If you read my post, you'll see that I was projecting what the market will be like for Hayward in four years...

    Hayward has agreed to an offer with Hornets

    https://twitter.com/WojYahooNBA/status/487145008475435010 In light of this news, I will say I think the Jazz are doing the right thing in matching the contract. Hayward isn't "worth" the max, of course, but he's an important part of our future, I think. I do understand why so many soured...

    Trey Burke... Keep or trade?

    Can we just trade his mom?
