Thread so good people still talk about it after it got locked. Bring it back @modstapoI was looking for that 'White Guys' thread, but I'm noticing that the Jazz could realistically put out an All-FIBA lineup with Bolmaro, Fontecchio, Markkanen and Olynyk at the same time. Mix in the new unis and we could be in for some real off-beat optics.
We are going to miss Snyder a lot.Andy Larsen and Checketts seem about as enthused about this whole "team 49" thing as the rest of us. Andy said the biggest difference between Hardy and Quin so far is that Hardy keeps things much closer to the vest, Quins answers to questions were much longer and more detailed. Another interesting difference is that Quin allowed the broadcasters to watch practice and at Hardy's practice today they weren't allowed to do so.
Andy's prediction for the starting lineup surprised me, he went with Conley/Sexton/Beasley/Vando/Olynyk. I have a hard time seeing Markkanen coming off the bench, but I guess we'll see.
That is the dumbest identity ever.Also, for those bagging on the "Team 49" concept. Look again at the pics of the team on the Jazz twitter page. It's a bunch of strangers, including the head coach. (Pretty sure that video is of Markannen meeting Vanderbilt for the first time.) These guys don't know each other AT ALL. They need some kind of identity. Team 49 is an identity that god knows this team needs. I like it.
Oh... you are capable of defending when you are focused and in shape... Maybe Cavs fans buy this but I ain't gonna get fooled. This just like when AK came back every summer with 15 lbs of muscle and been working on his jumper.
Who do they get to design our merchandise? High school kids?
