I was being sarcastic too my guy... was more a comment on how measurement focused we get (and front offices) rather looking at the most important thing... can the ****ing play ball.
I gotta improve my counter-sarcasm game for sure.

We have seen too many cases of physical limitations rendering skilled players unable to unlock all of their game at NBA level. I have always thought that picking physically gifted players and developing them is the best way but there are many paths.

As for Bane, he is lucky he is tall. It's easier to hide negative wingspan when you have wing-size.

It’s stupid to do depth charts like this because DM and Ingles function as Pgs too. Signing another pg only would prove to me we don’t get it. Sign a wing. What happens if Oni sucks or we have an injury?
Might be wise to have one mor pg in case of injury. But only at the minimum.
Yoooooooooooooooo, let’s get it
Do we even have any cap space other than the minimum?

I don’t think we are making Rudy contingency plans... it’s not really how we work. Plus if you are worried he wants more money you don’t give 30M to his backup that you could just use for him. I think the most reasonable explanation is just that we made a bad pick... trying to rationalize it or make it smart somehow in a weird endgame is the same **** people did when we drafted Tony.
Maybe they can play together?
Maybe they think Rudy won’t last?
Maybe they want a super cheap backup?

maybe they are just dumb
Maybe they thought BPA and grabbed BPA.

If no one in the league is willing to take him, they're stuck paying him anyway.

My statement wasn't really accurate, they didn't waive him, they stretched him so they could fit in Hayward at 30M/year.

They're going to be paying him 9M/year to go away for the next 3 seasons.

Would rather have him than Faves or Doke. Would REALLY rather have him than Faves AND Doke.

Sorry JazzFanz.
Let me see if I have this straight. Up on Bey/Woodward and Portis; down on Favors/Dok, Hughes, Niang. You want your centers to shoot and your perimeter players to defend more than the other way around?

Super smart to take the BPA that can only play one position with now two super established guys that should only play one position. If that’s how simple our front office is then we should be looking for improvement.

I mean we have seen this movie before.

I want them all to shoot, I don’t want the entire defense to hinge on one dude that can be dragged from the paint, and the Jazz have squat for disruptive or athletic defenders. Playoff basketball is largely about versatility and having fewer exploitable weaknesses (while obviously having select overwhelming strengths). Defense should begin and end at the rim, but there are other guys that can and should help, and I don’t think burning scant assets on players that at most can only play backup to a franchise player is wise.

I would also like this team to have any kind of edge whatsoever. Not terribly keen on how Disney they are.

If you have any further questions, my favorite team if this were a matter of choice is the Miami Heat.

This is the part where I remind people we were last or near last in steals deflections and loose balls recovered... but yeah the only problem was the 12 minutes that Rudy sits.

The Jazz have 0 available minutes. They either got to get a vet happy to be in the NBA or a young dude happy to be in the NBA. We arent going to get a bonafide rotation player with 0 available minutes.
The Jazz have a grand total of eight NBA players currently, usually (and should) play nine, and should probably have ten (for insurance).

If Niang is playing minutes you need another player. If Brantley and/or Morgan can sufficiently fill his role next year then you’re right.

Seems like Nuggets replacing him with Greg Whittington, a talented reclamation project who apparently spent time in G-League and Europe learning how to take his profession seriously. 6-9 3&D type. Half of Nuggets' fans seem thrilled Malone can no longer play Craig. The other half appreciate his hard-working if low-skilled play.
