    While Sloan doesnt like the team to compete in a running game with teams like the Suns or Warriors of the past, he has always emphasized pushing the ball up the floor whenever there is a chance. you can even see him in games often urging his PG to push the ball up quickly.
    Even recently he has said that unless we rebound the ball well it is difficult to get out and push the tempo. I dont think Deron has to convince Sloan to run more.

    I am guessing Deron will blame the rebounding as the reason for not running more.

    Anyone have a diarrhea type feeling that Watson will be our starting PG in 2013?

    Rumor has it that Portland is targeting Watson in the off-season

    Why would you ask Watson to resign? I thought he played well last night.

    he will be 40 then right? yes agree with re-signing him for next year. If only Portland did not plan to sign him for 10 mill a year for 5. Ronnie Price better be gone though.

    Why would you want him to resign? He's been playing well, IMHO.

    This is when you know a thread without much substance is getting too long. No read, just comment, repeat comment.

    Although, you have to at least find it suspicious that the teams that run the break well are teams that coaches either never shut up about running, or coaches that design their entire scheme around it. Jerry seems very passive-aggressive about getting the ball up the floor quickly and making something happen.

    Thanks for re-iterating one minute grammatical error repeatedly throughout this thread. I get the point you goddamn grammar nazis lol. Seriously though lets be pro-active here and throw him a contract before portland screws us yet again.

    Not quite, but who cares. Watson will be out of the league before Maynor, sure, but he's also the better player.

    I'm basing this off the few games I get to see on ESPN, but the other day against goldenstate Watson was killed by Curry. He'd play defense up till halfcourt, then let Curry get away from him every play. And he didn't score many points or anything. His game looked less than average to me.

    Sick. Please refrain from making any sort of claim about a players skills after only seeing him in excerpts of one match, I really dont feel like explaining why. After seeing millsap drain 46 (aka higher than boozers career high i think...correct me if mistaken) against bosh clearly millsap is top 3 pfs in the nba no contest; witnessing AK47 getting a 5x6 against the lakers defintiely makes him one of the most versatile basketball players of all time; Deron williams getting 5 points and 5 turnovers against the celtics clearly shows us that hes incompetent offensively and defensively as a pg and we must trade him for carlos arroyo + 2nd round pick. List goes on.

    First followup on this in SLTRIB:
    https://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/jazz/51186969-87/hayward-jazz-nuggets-rookie.html.csp?page=1
    Maybe sometimes his teammates dont run as hard because they think Deron wouldnt be pushing the tempo anyways. It can get mutual.

    Looks like everyone on the team could use a couple of games off to watch from the bench and realize what they could do to help the team more.

    I see Deron routinely trying to get out and run only to find nobody is running with him. I think he could definitely push the tempo more often regardless of the teammates but it's like you said, it can get mutual. It's hard to play 1 on 5 cause your teammates are still lollygagging behind you.

    Hopefully the time off will end up being a blessing in disguise, I just hope he gets back soon and rejuvinates himself and the whole team.
