    You're undervaluing Gobert - 538 speaks

    Yes a bit click baity title, but I believe for 95% of even top fans and for likely more of the broad NBA fan base this is probably true. Here's the defensive side of why: https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/rudy-gobert-is-having-one-of-the-best-defensive-seasons-in-modern-nba-history/ Pretty...

    Jordan Clarkson in 2nd place for 6MOY

    I know we've all been rooting hard for JC as the league's 6MOY this season but it just ain't gonna happen. OK - so the dude has some kicking stats: * 17.3 PPG great starter like numbers * 17.1 PER again, great starter level numbers * he routinely gets great nods from the media: “Jordan...

    Let's Mama Truckin' Go!

    So are we getting down after a loss to a top tier team, on the road, with that team setting many of their shooting records in the first half. A team that had one of the best shooting quarters to start a game in history. A team that tied the NBA first half three pointer record. A team that we...

    john stockton speaks out against the covid policies

    Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa! I rarely jump on JFC to comment much anymore but watch all your lovely antics from afar. Y'all are the greatest. That said besmirching the character of JS on the merits of this vid is ludicrous. Not saying he 100% isn't saying questionable things about COVID but to say...

    Spida Mitchell 7th Place All Time . . .

    Among all NBA players Mitchell is currently ranked 7th in points per game in the playoffs. That. Is. Not. Just. Rookies. - All. Time. Career. You look at the names he is with in the playoffs and its mind boggling. He's mind boggling. But we all knew that. Just bask in the moment and enjoy . . .

    The Jazz Headline the Greatest Night in NBA Regular Season History

    Never before (and almost certainly never again) has a Conference's 3 seed - played the 4; 5 seed played the 6; and 8 seed played the 9.On the final night of the season. All with tied records. All with the winner moving up in the standings and the loser moving down (or even out) in the playoffs...

    A boy can dream! A (not too far fetched) path to the 3 seed!

    So here are. We've come so far towards a boy's dream that the "far fetched" is upon us, the improbable is at our door, and the scenario where "it is less probable that we get the 3 seed now then it was that we'd make the playoffs when we were 19-28" is nearly a reality. And what poetic justice...

    A boy can dream! A (not too far fetched) path to the 3 seed!

    Jazz doing everything they need to. Just need some of the other top West teams to go on some losing streaks. Injuries to Golden State and Washington in particular are making opponent losses that should happen not.

    A boy can dream! A (not too far fetched) path to the 3 seed!

    I like it and because the spreadsheet is already built easy to do. As of today (green is predicted, red is bad upsets, green background is an upset in our favor). This could also go in the playoff thread if we needed. Nice thing is each projection has room for 2 upsets against us. We just...

    The 0.500 division

    Actually, has there ever been a time when all five teams made the playoffs in a single division? We might be in the toughest division in NBA history.

    A boy can dream! A (not too far fetched) path to the 3 seed!

    This year ... so damn true. Probably the truest its ever been. Really all its about is that first round win and everything else is gravy.

    A boy can dream! A (not too far fetched) path to the 3 seed!

    This is exactly the thing that motivated the thread in the first place. All it takes is us having another 14-3 streak (we are on one right now). And pretty much everyone else play at the level they've played all season (~50% win ball). The nice thing is that pretty much every team ahead of us...

    POLL: If forced to choose, who do you build a team around Gordon Hayward or Rudy Gobert?

    Didn't expect it to be this one sided either. Was going to post a "how great Gobert" really is thread to convince others but seems everyone's already in on the reality so will post as confirmation instead. I LOVE Hayward, think we'll see him re-sign next week and can't wait to watch the next...

    POLL: If forced to choose, who do you build a team around Gordon Hayward or Rudy Gobert?

    On the eve of the crazy few days that are about to ensue, let's step back and look at our two stars. Fortunately I feel confident that we will be able to have both on our team going forward . . . what a luxury with two top tier players. But this does help crystallize how valuable you believe...

    Western conference regular season prediction contest

    My optimism ( and homerism) calls for a little ridiculous expectations, but then I look for the next 3-4 seasons and think we have a nice upward trajectory if we're smart. Perhaps should have had us in 4th-5th spot, but will stick with this. 1. Warriors 2. Jazz 3. Spurs 4. Grizzlies 5. Clippers...

    Kevin Pelton lists three Jazz guys as potential first time all stars

    So as an on-again-off-again poster who has a hard time keeping up with my favorite forum for the team I love, just wondering how, or more importantly why, you find the time to post on a forum for a team you couldn't give a can of piss for?
