    Lowe’s 10 things has something about a “jazz dilemma”

    Can someone pls share? Can I say again how much I hate that ESPN tucked him behind a paywall... and how I refuse to give subscription money to a platform that will cover something like a minor motorcycle accident by Anthony Davis’s head of security before it will say anything about the Jazz...

    What should happen to Kevin Durant?

    Have you heard about this feud with Michael Rapaport? The league has punished players before for using anti-gay slurs, but this seems particularly egregious. There’s also the fact that he’s now displayed a pattern of behavior on social media. profanity filter on this link, btw...

    LAL and LAC will not be finishing 2 - 3 in the West

    Does this lessen your desire for the #1 seed? This ties into discussions about (a) load management (b) lineup experimentation (getting Oni and Morgan some experience and/or acquiring a player via trade or buyout market and emphasizing his integration). etc

    Oni needs to find consistent minutes

    One of our weak spots is wing defense. Oni needs to be much further along by the time the playoffs arrive. How does he get consistent minutes? i hope they limit Joe’s minutes during the stretch run—so there’s some minutes for Oni. For me, this situation has a triggering resemblance to last...

    Prediction thread: by end of season, what will our three best 5-man combos be?

    We need some prediction threads now that the season is upon us. @silesian says he’s doing his usual contest, so I thought I’d add this to the mix by end of season, what will our three best 5-man combos be? I’m open to what metric or metrics we will use to determine the winner. Let’s discuss...

    Which five-man combo would you rather see at the end of a game?

    See poll. I know these aren’t the only two combos we might see; I just want to see where JFC is at with these two: 1. Conley, DM, Joe, Bojan, Gobert 2. DM, Joe, Bojan, Favors, Gobert

    What precautions would you take if ownership changed right before you signed a contract through the rest of your prime?

    This may not be all about money. How does Rudy know that he wants to work with/for this guy? I would expect that this negotiation would instantly become a more lengthy process the moment ownership changed. Many other things besides money would be brought out onto the table that might otherwise...

    Discussion of what comes next

    Draft is done. What are the next roster-constructing moves? Will Davis be on the team? Will Clarkson be re-signed? We created some room with the Bradley trade, so will we be signing another player? Which players from the deep bench last year are getting cut?

    Now that a Conley trade is all but impossible, can we get him a pick n pop big?

    This is a thread that assumes Conley won’t be traded. So let’s shift the discussion toward how we can maximize his production. I think he needs most of his minutes against the opponents’ second unit; and I think he needs a big who pick n pops. Who is out there? What is his approximate market...

    The future of drop-big defense; and, necessary adjustments

    I don’t want to write a tome here, so let me get to the initial assumptions right off the bat: 1. We are officially in the era of diminishing returns when it comes to the efficiency of drop-big defense of the PnR. It can be in your bag, but it cannot be the kind of every-play, everyday staple...

    We need some general rules for posters who routinely engage in “bad faith” discussion tactics.

    It appears that bad faith discussion practices, as long as they refrain from breaking the most basic rules like circumventing the profanity filter, are totally fine at JFC. The mods appear unwilling to pursue bad faith behavior on the grounds that it makes the board less readable (by...

    probably sometime tomorrow. Probably somewhere in Orlando. Can a team without an identity win a game 7? Jazz fans hope so.
