Saint Cy of JFC
2022 Award Winner
Any big we draft in the top 10 will help us beat the Lakers. They will all be improvements over Fess and Doufus, so there for they will be "help".
If there are two things the Jazz definitely don't need it is rebounding and shot blocking. We are stacked with rebounders and shot blockers, and therefore a guy like Aldrich is redundant.
What we do need is an athletic 2/3 guard with the ability to spread the floor and play defense, who still has room to grow, because neither Matthews or CJ Miles fit that description.
If we can't get that we should take a flyer on a point guard with all-star potential.
Are you sure you're talking about the Jazz? Their lack of defensive interior presence, including shot blocking, is probably the team's biggest weakness. This is evidenced by them being 21st in the league in BPG differential (https://www.nba.com/statistics/sortable_team_statistics/sortable2.html?cnf=1&prd=1#top). And sure I'd love an athletic 2 guard with the ability to spread the floor and play defense. Too bad you aren't likely to get one with the 9th pick in the draft.
Unless you're being sarcastic of course...hard to tell on a message board.
He was being very sarcastic. Everything he said was the exact opposite which is how you tell if its a joke.
Aldrich is obviously much more athletic than Ostertag. The initial post is loaded with ignorance.
