Our players and coaching staff has adopted the same wait by the phone approach our front office has. If we wait maybe teams will give us wins.

Furkan Korkmaz (PHI) is breaking out. He was a free agent last summer, could have been signed to a minimum contract FFS, at the age of 21.
I and @LoPo brought up this kid's name here many, many times. oh well... on to the next one

Korkmaz was favored by many JFCers coming out of the draft, fwiw. Pls don’t feed teh Lopo. He was late to that party. Late but loud.

We are definitely not Tier 2A. We're 9-17 over teams with a .500 record
9-13 actually. And again I've gone over this countless times, that number is skewed and not a correct representation of how good the team is/isn't. 15 of those games were before the Clarkson trade and took place during a period when Quin was f****** around experimenting with nothing but an isolation offense that had us 23rd in offense. We went 6-9 in those games. Since the Clarkson trade we've gone 3-4 against +.500 teams and we could just as easily be 5-2 in those games.

Using a statistic like this is a bad way to judge a team. It does not give an accurate picture.

The Raptors are 9-12 against +.500 teams and everyone is kissing their ***

The Clippers routinely completely s*** the bed against trash teams (they're doing it AGAIN tonight) and everyone kisses their ***

The Clippers just lost to the bum*** Wolves by 27 points. They got 142 points dropped on their heads. D'Lo didn't play. Kawhi did. PG did. Clippers were basically at full strength.

They are favorites while the Jazz are pretenders tho?

Btw the Jazz haven't lost to anyone by 27+ points this season. Their only 20+ point losses came to the Lakers (25) and Raptors (20). The Jazz haven't allowed 140+ points once either. The Clippers have twice. In regulation.

but yeah, clippers got their own problem...
See that's thing. Every one of these top teams has flaws this season. The Bucks do. The Lakers do. The Clippers do. The Raptors do. The Nuggets do. The Heat do. The Jazz do. Etc etc. Thinking the Jazz aren't in contention is silly. We can beat any of these teams in a 7 game series. They have flaws just like we do.

It's not like last season where we just couldn't beat the Warriors or Rockets because they had such a big advantage in terms of offensive firepower and stylistically we couldn't matchup with them.

The teams you listed have less flaws, and don't suck as bad because Niang couldn't and wouldn't play for them nor their g league team, same can be said about Bradley

Fine, I’ll use another method. The eye test. We’re not that ****ing good, have no balls, have an average defense, at best, and have zero chance at making the conference finals as currently constructed, barring an injury to a major player on an opponent.

We might do better if the opponent is at full strength. We're haven't even seen one forever. Playing injured and schedule disadvantaged playoff teams had been our kryptonite.

Back to S+M wer play up and down to the competition. Im half joking here, but I bet we don't get stomped like you would expect.
