God Jazz fans are like the worst needy ****ing girlfriend. I would want to leave too if I was constantly asked "you like us right????" Also, who the **** cares what he thinks right now. If he's good, he'll have 6 years to come around to playing here. If not, **** him.
Dude probably grew up watching the Pistons win the championship and go to the east finals like 10 times. If you had a choice would you play for the Jazz? I absolutely would. Trey Burke will like the Jazz plenty when he is an all star, and leads us to a championship. There is no way in hell, if we are consistently going to the finals and contending, that anybody would want to leave the team to play for Joe Dumars messed up version of a D league team.
Some Jazz fans need to stop acting as they just got dumped at the prom. Of course, who wouldn't want to play for his hometown team. It is no big deal and it isn't going to change the fact that he wears a Jazz uniform.
Every city isn't for everyone. Look at Dwight Howard, he just left LA and $30 million dollars on the table to move to freak'n Houston Texas. I lived in LA and have visited Houston and I can tell you that you would have to be giving me more than $30 million to take Houston over LA. However, there are many people who love Houston and couldn't imagine living in LA.
I just don't get this inferior complex that many Jazz fans have about SLC and people not wanting to play for the Jazz. Every team has been turned down. Players don't have to have 100 percent loyalty to the city they play in. A matter of fact many players live in a different city. Kevin Garnett had a house in LA but that didn't keep him from playing hard for Boston.
