I still remember the moment that jazz drafted him. I was like wtf???

Even after the max contract, i was not happy. but now...... he is a beast.

I remember my dad saying "Did Utah draft that white dude who missed shot against Duke? How Utah of them." (My dad is a Rockets fan)

I liked that they were having fun too. They like each other, they like their coach and they're having fun. They lost that over the past few years. It's nice to see it again.

Yeah, I don't think we ever truly gave up with Corbin, but there is more fight and belief under Snyder.

I dunno. There were a couple of weeks, a couple of different times, when it looked like Corbin had lost them. He was able to get them back on track, but there were some dark stretches. No fight. No fight = lost.

Think everyone has been pleased with his defensive improvement. Let's not act like his defense wasn't god awful to begin the season though.

Kanter's defense was never as bad as some were saying. Did he have some terrible games, yes. Did he deserve the hate thrown his way or the constant trade threads, absolutely not. Has his defense improved this season, absolutely. It can still be improved, but nobody can deny he is playing much better defense than the beginning of the season.

Hayward is so crazy.

Did anyone think he was going to be this good coming out of Butler?

Kind of like no one thought he would be as good as he was in Butler coming out of HS.

And people want to cry about him playing video games like he doesn't work on his game. Don't think you can go from a barely recruited HS player to an All-Star caliber player with no work.

Ahem...

No that's wrong. His defense was terrible to begin the season. It was a serious liability. But thankfully he's been playing with much more effort on that end of the floor. As for JF bi-polar opinions, who gives a ****? Every time Hayward misses a shot someone questions whether he should be traded. It's not like these opinions are of any consequence.
