You Are Not Forgotten
2018 Award Winner
I'm doing OK at the moment. You'd need a special app to keep track of my OK status in real time.Oh, ok....
Gobert is awesome. And those comments he made were, and worst, fine. More likely, they were motivating for him and the team. At best, they were just flat-out true.
You doing ok?
His comments were not true. He doesn't have a reliable post move, so just giving him the ball down low is not smart.
Getting him ally-oops, that is smart. Getting him the ball when he has a clear lane to the basket and doesn't need to dribble, that's smart.
Giving him the ball because he has position down low, that's not smart and he was an *** for suggesting that, imho.
That said, he's the most important player on our team. He is the heart and soul of the Utah Jazz.
That's why, when I'm in a delicate emotional state as a fan, and I'm worried and anxious that the team isn't coming together and they are struggling, I hear my favorite player speak out to the media about internal team issues, I suddenly worry that the Jazz have locker room issues and this might be the sign that things are NOT going to turn around but instead disintegrate. That's where I was at. I'm an emotional fan. I'm usually slow to freak out, but in this I saw behaviour that freaked me out because it is not normal for our players to go to the media to complain about not getting their own, and it's especially not normal for Gobert to do that. It looked like a red flag to me and I freaked out.
Obviously I was dumb. Your need to dance and sing and laugh on the pile of stupidity I made makes me want to ask if you're okay? Because it seems to matter a lot to you to shine a light on other people's faults, while casting a shadow on their successes.
