People came because of these things.

DM loving it here vocally and inviting people to come.

Gobert.

Snyder and coaching staff = awesome & development

Conley trade.

Bojan chose to sign here.

Boom, flood gates open.

Thank you Snyder, DM, Gobert, Ingles, Gail, Sr GM & GM.

Sometimes you make all the right calls and nobody comes. Sometimes you make all the right calls with the right timing and they all come.

With some substantial help and planning from the Jazz front office that made it possible.

Uhhh, the Jazz signed a white European. That's kind of the exception everyone agrees on. That and older vets (Jeff Green/Ed Davis).

And they wanted to sign another white Euro and he chose Europe over Utah.

So no, I dont think the myth is dispelled yet.

Bump this thread when a mid 20's all-star with a robust market picks Utah.

Mike Conley probably has more to do with the signing of Davis in Green. There are former teammates of the "teammate of the year". Both probably could have gotten more money elsewhere, but wanted to play with Conley and wanted to compete for a championship.

Mudiay's agent has said he likes the Jazz's developmental program. I'm sure playing with Conley is part of that, but the Jazz do deserve kudos for developing a reputation.


Seeing Conley bring some guys to the Jazz makes me believe that maybe some day Mitchell will be able to recruit players to come play with him in SLC. I doubt it will be the 20 somethings on their first big time contracts, but maybe guys with 7+ years of experience. That will be our saving grace in 5+ years. If Mitchell walks, we are in trouble.

For the deal he got in Europe I wouldn’t come here either
Has the official deal been reported yet? There was a rumored one, but it was debunked.

I can't imagine he'll be making more money in Europe. They just don't have the ability to pay NBA money.

This seems rather inaccurate in all but the most technical sense. If the explanation I heard is true (that this is more related to desires of wife/family), Mirotic's decision was much more about choosing Europe over the USA, or the stability they'd likely have in the Euroleague over the NBA's instability, rather than any sort of rejection of "Utah."

First day of training camp, everyone is going to have to wear a "Hello, My Name is..." tag.
And they'll all be asking, who's the creepy guy with the squeaky voice checking out my junk?"
That’s funny. Being gay is funny because it’s weird and kinda wrong which makes it funny.

Did I get the joke?

Right, that’s the only criteria.

Maybe just shut the **** up sometimes.
