    Gobert will never have the sky hook Eaton had!! If Eaton used that today, and back then nobody could teach a leftie how to shoot!!!

    Will you be updating the list, or have you retired from it?

    Um, is that an insult of some kind? Maybe that he has a rag made out of an ostrich? Does he like to clean ostriches or something? Is that a bad thing?

    I legit believe he would have been the difference maker for us. We needed that one more solid piece. Center was always our soft spot. Still don't get why he wouldn't come.

    It is an insult because he was tall and funny looking, the whole league thought he sucked as do I, if he was so good we wouldn't have needed seikaly. At least foster sucked less. Carr was good, I liked his glasses

    Fesenko is pretty high on my list because of his "if he dies, he dies" comment about him fouling somebody hard.

    Probably because everyone wanted him to do it all the time.

    Not according to the scoring formula. Favors is up on Rudy based on playing at a high level for longer in a Jazz uni.

    In terms of fantasy points earned while a member of the Jazz, specifically.

    I want to say I read somewhere that Quin told him to knock it off when he failed to get back on defense because he was distracted at some point.

    The clip that shows Rudy saluting the bench and a couple players (Hood and Elijah Millsap I think) saluting back is still just as awesome as when it happened.

    Has Eaton ever cried for not getting selected to the All-Star? No he didn't because he was an All-Star in 88-89. You have much work to do Rudy. And you're yet to trap a layup/dunk on the backboard w/o jumping.

    Rudy will never be the most offensively talented bigman obviously, but are we looking for the one that affected the Jazz success the most? I think look no further than this guy.

    Advanced stats?
    Win shares for career:
    Memo has 54.7 in 10 seasons (7 for the Jazz)
    Eaton has 44.8 in 11 seasons
    Rudy already piled up 52.8 in 6 seasons.

    More?
    Per 100 possesions Offensive Rating Defensive Rating Average Net:
    Memo: 114-107 = +7
    Eaton: 97-100 = -3
    Gobert: 124 -99 = +25

    Maybe we should somehow steer Framer to the nearest company, who sells Microsoft CSP licenses? :). Office 365 Business + Power BI should cost about 20 USD per month. Actually it can be purchased a la for 1 day only assuming the it is not problem for a seller (already creating the invoice for that tiny amount negates the profits for the seller :) ).

    Threads like this are when you know the NBA season just needs to start. Dipping into half-decade old threads that had a terrible topic and reliving them? Good grief. Go jog against traffic on the freeway if your that bored.

    Fantasy stats wise while wearing a Jazz uni, not on overall talent or accomplishment
