    Count me as someone that is glad Dante is not staring at someone’s feet for better court awareness.

    It's so crazy. Why does The Enigma torment us so? At the same time, he's making it interesting and you can't argue that he's been showing signs that he could turn into a very, very good player still.

    If Dante didn't play the defense he plays I'd be much more critical of him.

    He played well when he returned toward the end of last season. This season he has played well enough. He hasn't been consistent with his offense but next season I expect to see some 30-point games from him.

    I know some people are for Conley and some are against and I know his contract is expensive but one thing you can say about Mike is he's much more consistent a scorer than Rubio and Exum.

    It's also crazy to me that you (edit: not you personally, but somebody in general) can watch our current play and not notice the horrific bench lineups that are hemorrhaging points and look totally disorganized out there. This team badly needs Dante and Thabo back to get that unit back to a positive instead of one that we just pray can hold on for a couple minutes.

    The term you're searching for is "you people".

    Definitely playing our best basketball of the year right now.
    12-2 in the last 14.

    Speaking of having zero awareness, he actually stepped on Favors foot while playing defence.

    "We didn't make any moves at the deadline because we're looking forward to midseason free agent acquisition Dante Exum."

    Some people think Lonzo is gonna be out more like 10-12 weeks. I think he had a complete ligament tear. Reggie Jackson missed close to 3 months with that injury. He hurt it in late December and in September of the next year he said it still hadn't fulled healed. That grade 3 sprain is no joke.

    Olidipo just blew up his knee by trying to play when he was still sore, and no doubt there were a bunch of dumbasses in Indiana bitching and moaning about him not being able to play sooner.

    Also, if Exum did suffer another serious injury, the crybabies on this board would be the first to point fingers and blame the medical staff for not handling the situation more carefully.

    With Exum suffering 2 injuries that kept him out long term, it seems kind of obvious that Utah should err on the side of caution to prevent another catastrophe. Thank God none of the idiots on this board have any influence on such important decisions.

    I don't know why anyone would want Dante to rush back.
    Maybe they are tired of all the winning?

    a. I think right now Grayson has more potential than Exum. He is more athletic, weighs more , seems stronger, has a less herky jerky jump shop and can make offensive plays. He is obviously worse at defense right now than Exum and his actually shooting percentage has been poor but he has mostly been played in garbage time.... Joe Ingles also struggles with his shot when he first started with us. Allen is still a rookie and hasn't had 4 year worth of Jazz coaching. Then look at current pay vs potential growth.. Exum's performance doesn't really match his salary.

    b. Look at the twigs he has for legs.

    Fun fact, Dante Exum is only 3 months older than Grayson Allen.

    I agree with not rushing people back, but they sure seemed not very cautious when favors hobbled around on old man knees 2 years ago. Where was the caution then? Or did they learn their lesson?

    It's CJ Miles, aka "the next Jordan", syndrome of JF. People get inordinately high on a borderline player who has yet to tap their vast "potential", and they are just that one lucky break or big game away from earning their rightful spot as the mythical GOAT-to-be.

    All the while we have a legitimate example of a borderline player actually tapping that potential, and becoming a true emerging generational talent, or did everyone forget that Rudy was a late-first-rounder who showed "flashes" but looked very raw with some obvious talent in one area, but by no stretch was viewed as a sure thing?

    More often than not that is a result of steady improvement, and that "break-out" game or year is generally not all that surprising to those who have watched them work hard and steadily improve.
