    Lyles issue wasnt as much physical as it was mental. Maybe a nice restart with Denver will help him get his mind right and just play ball.

    Boris will wait an see. So far Utah has

    -Trade number 3 pick Kanter for nothing.
    -Trade two firsts for Trey.
    -Draft Exum 4th pick bust.
    -Trade a former 12 pick an a 24 pick for a 13 pick.

    Not being negative on this kid hope he blows up just sayin Utah management does not have a record of increasing asset value in the draft. I hope he does not bust like Trey Lyles an I hope Lyles the best hope he can find his groove.

    I see a lot of similarities between Mitchell and Beverley.

    Yup I member I was excited about his play there for a minute. I member people comparing him as a lighter Boozer an Lamar Odom.

    I wanted oubre. Who really hasn't been all that good either.
    Also liked turner and frank the tank but both were already picked.
    I didn't like booker and love him now.

    I probably hated the lyles pick more than any in jazz history......but after a very promising rookie year I thought he would be very good.
    And if he gets his three point shot going consistently then I still think he will be very good.

    I concluded the opposite. But pretty subjective stuff.

    I guess I can be the last person to jump off the Lyles bandwagon. Supreme homerism or stubbornness.

    Locke. And Locke drafted him at 24 in his Locked on NBA mock draft. This plus the pro-Lyles advocacy 2 years ago suggests he has some inside information, at least occasionally.

    I think he is a 2 on offense who will defend the 1/2

    Good job cherry picking the worse Jazz moves. That is the key to a balanced analysis.

    Yes, but even 2's need traditional PG skills.

    I was critical of him in the draft thread but now that he is a Jazz man i will love him. I like his personality and the desire to play defense. The funny thing is he has almost the same physical measurement to george hill.

    But jumps about 10" higher than Hill does.

    There were several people who didn't like the Burke pick at all.

    I will be the first to admit I was extremely excited when we traded 14 and 21 for 9 to get Burke. I will also be the first to admit it was a bad trade in hindsight. That draft class as a whole sucked and was completely overrated at the time. Trading 46 and cash for 27 yo get Gobert makes up for everything though.

    Hard for me to claim Jazz draft well or act like DM is gonna be better then Lyles. Both kinda dumb arguments.
