There's a reason Charles Barkley will never get into the HOF. Oh, dang.
"I'm a moron for thinking the Browns could even sniff 10 wins in a division where the other three teams (two of whom almost always make the playoffs) made the post-season last year. Gyp Rosetti's thee God of football knowledge." - Brown Notes
The most important thing in the NBA is to have stars, in which the Jazz have zero.
Jazz do need at least 1 star. In crunch time, no one has the ability to take over...and more importantly, get the refs to give them a call. You saw what happened against the Clippers: Paul took over and the Clippers got some questionable calls to go their way. That said, Utah has ZERO chance at getting a star. The GS pick will be in the mid 20's. The Jazz pick is likely to fall between 12-16, depending on if they sneak into the playoffs or finish just out.
A star had to come out of the Deron deal in either Favors, the #3 pick (Kanter) or Hayward or Burks. I don't see that happening. It's doubtful the Jazz get a great player out of a Millsap or Jefferson trade. The best bet would be to try to get a late lottery pick from a team needing to dump payroll. Then package 3 1st-rounders to move up in the draft. It's a long-shot, but that's the only way I see the Jazz getting an impact player.
