    I know people like to hate on Swedish Swish, but his FG% was .466 and he shot .414 from three this past season.

    Bjelica shot .461 from the field and .415 from three.

    Insanely similar stats. They're both the same height and weight as well (OK - according to ESPN JJ has 1 single pound over him - 231 VS 230).

    Point is, eerily similar stats for a stretch-4.

    Exactly, plus Bjelicia has a much quicker release. It seems like it takes forever for Jerebko to get his shot off.

    Swedish swish is just such a great nickname though.

    Yep, that's exactly what I brought up elsewhere. Jazz MAY have won 2-4 games more with a healthy Gobert. Having Gobert not only improves the starting lineup, but means Favs is playing backup 5 instead of Udoh.

    But everyone acts like it's a done deal with Bjelica. I think we have to offer him the full MLE to get him to sign an offer sheet with us and for Minnesota not to match. The TWolves could conceivably match and still stay under the tax (or make a minor move to get there). Then they have some salaries falling off after next season. If a number of other teams are interested, can't they match and then trade him...not to the team that signs him to an offer, but to another team?

    After watching this, I'm in. Let's get this guy. Cool under pressure, smart on his feet, did not over react, but was tough as he!!.

    Later said, he did it because he didn't want to hurt Afflalo.

    I'll bet a Snyder offense gets Bjelica better shots than Thibs got him.

    Healthy gallinari vs Bjelica. In comparison of their all around game is gallinari way better or are they somewhat comparable with gallinari getting the slight edge?
    @cy @Handlogtens Heroes @Ellis269 or anyone else who watches lots of non jazz nba.

    Bjelica can put the ball on the floor and make it to the rim, distribute on offense a little, very good passer. He's way more skilled than Jerebko.

    Yeah, but when you look at them, you can just tell Bjelica is much more talented.

    Also think the league owes him an apology for booting him from the game. No way he could have handled that any better.

    Gallinari healthy is considerably better. It's just he's never healthy
