    Let's start looking to the future

    We should've done this last year, and maybe we'd have Lilliard now. But no we had to get that playoff spot to get swept and lose the draft pick. It's pretty evident to me that we need to play the young guys and move the guys who are not going to be part of our future. I'd rather watch the team develop through a losing season and find out if these young guys really have the potential we've all been touting. But another year playing vets to barely make the playoffs and stunting the growth of our young players is going to drive me crazy.

    How would missing the playoffs last year have landed us Lillard??? We would've picked 14th and a package of our 14th pick with the GS pick wouldn't have been enough for Porty.

    We would've only gotten Lillard with the Warriors draft pick, not ours momo.

    Then you better stop watching because the Jazz are never going to be a team that tanks and only plays young guys. They never have and I doubt they ever well.

    And they shouldn't. First off I'm not going to criticize GS for tanking then go out and hope the jazz tank. I won't watch a team tank while we have players that can help us win sit the bench.

    Besides the young guys are getting minutes except for Burks of course. Was happy that Tinsley didn't play, think Ty is trying to get Burks minutes. The only problem was The team lost all momentum when Burks and Foye came in. Burks didn't exactly do anything to mak Ty give him extra minutes.

    I'm too pissed.. which means there's still hope.

    Lillard went sixth. GSW had protection at that pick. Try again.

    Unless, of course, you're one of those people who thinks it would have been easy to just trade that pick to get Lillard.

    There is one little conspiracy theory that is missing from this thread. The Jazz are in a perfect position to draft high in the 2014 draft. They are showcasing all of the vet contracts and there will be a fire sale at the trade deadline and the Jazz will take on a bunch of salary while also getting a bunch of draft picks. In the 2013-14 season they will be forced to play almost no vets and because the young guys are so bad the Jazz will get a top 3 pick of their own along with 2 other lottery picks. The future is bright, just not for another couple of years.
