    I am currently weighing the advantages and disadvantages that I have as a player and how they affect my chances of making the team. So far, I like the odds.

    Cons

    - Out of shape.
    - Haven't played serious basketball in about a decade.
    - I played the PF position in high school, but that might be too undersized for the NBA at 6'5.
    - Bad fundamentals.
    - Not really willing to put forth the effort to succeed.



    Pros

    - I'm 30.


    Fingers crossed.

    Damn, rookie mistake.
    Please don't bench me and let the veterans who make more mistakes than I do get out on the floor!

    Can't wait to talk bad about you, and give you horrible nicknames, and trade threads, and why the hell is siromar getting minutes over Favors and Kanter.

    Roger's lying about his age tho, he's like 36 and stuff.

    Maybe I should try out, I haven't played ball for any school, but I am at least serviceable as a ward ball backup center. Unfortunately for my chances, I am only 6' tall, which works out great for ward ball, but I would have to play the point or the 2 in the NBA. I am a decent passer, but a marginable dribbler at best. I am Roger's age which means I can be a contract holdout, and I am terribly out of shape and injury prone, just like Roger.

    I could probably take Tinsley's spot.....

    You'd probably get playing time ahead of Burks.

    I dont know. You didnt say you were bad at defense. Do you at least shoot a lot and miss in the clutch?

    Sorry, didn't go over that. Really I am more of a defensive player, I don't shoot unless I'm wide open, so I don't think I'd have a chance. Definitely not a chucker.

    ......I suspect the Jazz could pick up a couple of Wal-mart greeters, who could put up better numbers than some of our clowns!
