2018 Award Winner
I think it’s been pretty clear for a while Donovan doesn’t like Utah. He doesn’t like being here, he doesn’t like the fans here anymore to be quite blunt, and you’re just not going to change his mind. I think he cares about his “Spida” brand much more than he cares about winning, culture, teammates, or being a good franchise representative. He hasn’t said a positive thing about, or repped Utah in any way shape or form for a couple years now. And tbh, idk what more you can do to cater to him. He’s been given essentially anything he wants. Just rip off the band aid and train the douche.The thing that kinda got me was he said Donovan will be here a year "at the most"... so what we roll into the season and hope he makes it past the trade deadline. I'm almost rooting for the worst case scenario where we do this damn re-tool and then Ryan has to trade Donovan right before the trade deadline and then the AS game comes right after... maximum egg on his face.
Its kinda clear to me the way Tim talks that we've already been in damage control with Donovan and trying to make him happy and that it isn't working all that well.
