Are we still a contender this year? Is this a bye-year and we will pick it all up again next season when we have a chance to re-tool a bit in the off-season? What is our realistic ceiling if we stand pat this year, or if we make a trade to shake things up?


Simple poll. are we still contenders?

Could we win a couple series and then have the most incredible injury luck ever? Sure... I think we are closer to a first round exit than a finals appearance.
My thoughts as well. As presently constituted we are destined for another 2nd round exit imo. And I am not sure there is any tweak we can make at the deadline to really move the needle.

I don't think so. To get to the finals we would most likely have to get past both Phoenix and Golden State and we wouldn't have home court in either series. That isn't happening. We can trade Ingles and a first and maybe get someone that will give us help with our perimeter defense but we're not going to get back a huge difference maker that's going to put us over the top.

Kinda. The chance is there. I don’t feel like any level is maximizing that chance, however (FO [though this is a somewhat pass because we don’t know what DA is thinking], coaching, players]) but the chance is there.

My mind says Nope but my heart still thinks if the Jazz could make a significant move then yes. Right now I do not see it happening but a lot can happen before the playoffs start. I do not think there is a clear real contender. I think there are many teams who have a shot at it but the Jazz need to get better on defense and start shooting better and more with more consistency.

lmao no

The Jazz will never make it back to the NBA Finals. I bet they don't even get to the WCF anytime soon, either.

No. At heart they also don’t think they are. Donovan admitted as such a few days ago.
