    Maybe the most fun game of the year. Bogey was insane!

    Going to start the reverse jinx now and say that I'm not too optimistic tonight. This is a game where you might expect two teams to raise their level of focus, but the Jazz definitely did not do that against PHX. Jokic has been incredible lately and it could get out of hand if the Jazz players...

    The Lakers are Going to End up as the #7 Seed

    We did the yearly thing where we pretended that Andre Drummond doesn't stink.

    Is Friday’s game the most important game of the season?

    No different than any other game on the schedule. As we saw, the Jazz can lose to anyone and the losses count the same. One might say each game is a must win game.

    I'm Worried About Clarkson

    One thing that does comfort me about the Clarkson situation is that while Quin gives him the green light to do whatever when he plays, I don't think Quin will let the ship go down with Clarkson. Even when Clarkson dropped 40 he didn't get to close the game. Bogey makes me much more worried...

    What Became of Player Development?

    I never said that they are generational talents. I said they are different from Torrey Craig and Frank Jackson. If the standard is getting Jokic, Giannis, Curry...yeah I'd agree they didn't a player like that. That's a crazy standard to live up to. A championship should never be the expectation...

    What Became of Player Development?

    You act as if a championship is a given and anything else is a sign of a poor FO. Why is the expectation of a small market team to win a championship? Because they made enough good moves on the margin that it's a slight possibility? Making moves on the margin is the only reason the Jazz are...

    What Became of Player Development?

    It takes a lot to win a championship, and it's not that the Jazz aren't doing enough on the margins. It's also hilarious to pull the championship card when whining about Frank Jackson and Torey Craig and downplaying Gobert and Mitchell. Not to mention the several other role players the Jazz have...

    What Became of Player Development?

    You can nickel and dime them for not making X, Y, Z move...but the whole thing is ridiculous when you take a step back and look at the track record. The Jazz are a a good team and have been good for years. They've had an amount of success that some franchises can't achieve after a decade plus...

    What Became of Player Development?

    What is the expectation here? That the Jazz land every diamond in the rough? The Jazz have the best record in the league and the majority of the rotation was a diamond in the rough. If you don’t think the Jazz have been successful working the margins and finding/developing talent, nobody in...

    I'm Worried About Clarkson

    I think the more he misses, the more wild and desperate he gets. I think he is getting tougher shots but it's a result of self sabotage more than anything. Mitchell does the same thing.

    What Became of Player Development?

    Yeah, this is one of the complaints I don’t get. This team was built almost entirely on the margins and was heavily reliant on player development. Plenty of things to complain about as far as the FO, but hard to be upset with the results. It sucks that Jack Cooley never developed into a star but...

    I'm Worried About Clarkson

    Even when Mitchell and Conley were playing Clarkson’s solution to everything is to shoot out of it. Nothing wrong keeping your confidence up and taking the same shots. What’s he’s doing is forcing up more and worse shots because he’s so desperate to score. That type of mentality can be really...

    Should we rest Conley tomorrow?

    Well, I responding to a point made about previous personal injury about this. It’s only fair to point out that a 6 game absence is not typical expectation for a hamstring injury. There’s been a lot of soft tissue injuries in the league this year and they take time. Given that there’s not many...

    Should we rest Conley tomorrow?

    He missed a moth and a half last year with a hamstring which is way more typical for these injuries. There is a long break between the end of the season and the playoffs so maybe he'll make it, but I'll be very surprised if he plays another regular season game.

    I would be surprised if he's ready for the playoffs.

    I can't watch this garbage team anymore. Guess I'll wait for Mitchell to come back. The rest of these guys have already quit so no point in watching them play.

    Team has no pride, might as well pack it up until the playoffs. They are unwatchable.

    Get Joe off the ****ing court. Some of the most embarrassing basketball I have ever seen. Do not let him see another second on the court.

    Leave the Jazz wide open every play = profit. They can't make anything. Another embarrassing performance....and then these players turn around and whine about people thinking they're frauds.
