    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...

    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...

    And Suddenly . . . Roster Flexibility With a Decent Win Now Message

    So I like the move. I think it set's the tone for keeping our key players with a "we're ready to win" message, while keeping us flexible enough to make a move in FA 1-2 years from now (when the insane FA impact is settled a bit - this year will be nuts, as in we haven't even begun to see what...

    GAME THREAD Jazz at Pels 6PM MST, Feb 10

    After the Dallas game I was so pumped I had to breathe into a paper bag for a full 30 minutes. Even changed my avatar in honor of the game MVP (so damn sorry Burks it hurt, it really did). So now it's time to head to the hills, light a bonfire, and dance in a loin cloth in front of that cave...

    When your Bench celebrates like this . . .

    You know Derrick Favors has arrived. Srsly, only pure raw instinct would allow any human to actually throw down the double flex into a front curl like Lyles did when Favors sealed the game. Saw that during the game and loled my butt off ... wanted to see if anyone else noticed? Regardless, it...

    Why The Jazz Are Sitting Pretty + Bonus Graphic!

    My frontline can beat up your frontline - Why I'm giddy.

    The TLDR: Our front line kicks *** and not just because we love them and the eyeball test is compelling. I'd take them objectively right now over any other in the league. --- I have only started a post once before, back around the time when PKM invited all the lurkers to give a wave (dude -...

    Poll: YOUR DREAMS for 2013-2014

    I like to see how people view and hope for the future. There are many possible variants that could be added to the 4 I've put in the poll but this gives decent breadth without creating too many possibilities. This is a personnel poll not a coaching poll as I know coaching could be something...
