Let's also not forget that John and Karl continually "choked" in the playoffs, until they didn't. If Twitter and Jazzfanz were around in those days (maybe Jazzfanz was), no doubt many of the same people now who hold them in hagiographic reverence would have, back in the day, been calling on the FO to get rid of the bums, break them up, rebuild, etc. Jazz are playing poorly, no doubt. Houston, however, is the better team and a bad matchup. Again, for those people who wanted to face Houston out of some old school fanciful notion that true champions travel the hard road, I hope you're happy.
