    This has been a disappointing and frustrating season so far. I've seen the Jazz lose several close games because the players are not making good decisions in crunch time. I blame some of that on the players but also a lot of that on poor coaching. There just doesn't seem to be any sort of understanding of what needs to be done. I'm still completely baffled why the team doesn't seem to be aware of two-for-one opportunities at the ends of quarters. So often they get the ball with 35s left and run the clock to 21s and ultimately take some ill advised turn-around fade-away 18ft jump shot with a hand in their face. That's just dumb basketball and it's getting harder and harder to watch.

    Big Al is our number one option. Even if this team was battling for a top-seed I wouldn't much enjoy watching him play basketball. As it is, I absolutely can't stand watching him play basketball. Winning is important, sure. But he is a boring player. He does the same thing damn near every time he gets the ball. Pump fake, pump fake, fade away jump shot or lean in for a floater. Almost never gets contact. Meanwhile the rest of the team might as well be given chairs so they could sit down and watch with the rest of us.

    Millsap's in a funk of some sort. I love the guy but either he's not getting into a rhythm in his current role or he's already checked out. I've always felt he could make the Jazz a dangerous team if he was willing to come off the bench but I don't get the sense he's willing to do that. It's dissapointing, but I think he's the kind of player that needs to get his first and then see what he can do about getting the team some wins.

    Hayward, ugh. I want to like this guy so bad. Sometimes he's the player I had hoped he was, but far too often he's the guy scared to shot the ball. I don't really get what his problem is. I keep thinking he'll put it all together, but we're at the point where he would have by now if he is ever going to.

    Favors looks good, but I'm losing faith that he's going to be a great player. I think he'll be very good for a long time and the kind of player I absolutely want on the Jazz, but not a dominate guy. There's still time, though.

    The good thing about Kanter is that he is looking more and more like a force to be reckoned with. There was a possibility he could have been a bust and I feel pretty safe saying he's not a bust, not by a long shot. I like the idea of him and Favors together. That's a big strong front-line that plays amazing defense. That's the key to Utah's future right there. We need both of these guys in a big way. If either Kanter or Favors develops into a top-tier player, even if the other one is only good, the Jazz are in a good spot.

    I think at best the Jazz will be 7th or 8th seed this year. I don't see them getting out of the first round either way.

    Maybe the Jazz will make a trade, but I think other teams will be looking for a steal and the Jazz FO doesn't do giveaways so I think they might sit on their hands. Ultimately it has more to do with what other teams are willing to give because I know the Jazz would be happy to move Al or Paul for the right price.

    And thats what wrong with Jazz management and why I hate them. They will try to ask for too much for Al and Paul and in the end get nothing for them. They find more value in a one year rental than obtaining a pick or two that they could use to help facilitate a big trade. They think we are actually enjoying this crap and think making a sorry ass playoff run is more important than building for a realistic run in the future.
    All of the above.

    Lots of the fans are overreacting. We were in bad shape last year after this many games and still made the playoffs. We had a road heavy schedule to start. The Jazz will work things out.

    Biggest disappointment is Coach Ty Corbin. He runs a strict rotation and rarely deviates from it. This flaw many times has either killed runs or gotten us big deficits to start a ball game. There is a reason the Jazz lead the league in comeback victories the starters are constantly digging big holes for the team, and the bench gets us out of them. Another huge disappoint is Ty Corbin has no idea how to use Hayward in an offense. He should be the table setter for this team, and not spotting up. He's the best passer on the team, and great at getting to the foul line. He's the best at creAting for himself and others.

    That may be true. Sometimes it's difficult to know, until done with retrospect, whether some were overreacting .. or others were underreacting.

    Whining about playing too many road games is something losers do. It's not becoming to fans that should be smarter and it's especially so if the organization starts making such lame excuses.

    Good teams win on the road. Pretenders worry about the question.
