    I wouldn't call myself a troll. But the hivemind does get riled up when you don't praise everything with the Jazz and their current lot in life. Ultimately, though, if you feel the Jazz is on the cusp of being a great team, more power to you. Myself? I think great teams typically don't bow out in non-competitive series before the conference finals.

    Lmfao “hive minds”. Love how people run to that when their opinion is widely refuted.

    If you think there is a hive mind here then we can’t help you lol.

    Haha

    What's been refuted exactly? I've said for a year now the Jazz is likely hitting their ceiling as a five-seed and a team that struggles to advance beyond the second round. In the playoff picture, they're smack dab right in the middle - as has been the case for the last twenty years. There's nothing to refute there because it's fact. If you find that positively awesome and the Jazz being fifth, again, in the NBA playoffs is what you consider being a team on the cusp of being great, more power to you. I don't and that's something you can't refute because, gosh, it's just my opinion, man.

    But yeah...

    The majority of people in this thread (and others) were predicting around 54/55 wins. Don't know why people are acting like we performed to expectations. It's okay to admit we didn't. It's not like admitting so is saying we're terrible, we're not. We just weren't as good as we could/should have been.

    Fans arent a good barometer of expectations. We arent exactly objective or without bias.

    The Jazz outperformed what the betting public thought, so they outperformed most peoples expectations texpe

    You also could say they under performed in the first half of the season and probably would've been in the 54 win range had Donovan and Ricky been more consistent in the early going.
