    I like how the new GM has put this team together... FINALLY the 3-point shot is not being neglected on this team...

    Bringing in Foye and Mo has contributed greatly to the huge improvement of this team... And as these guys continue to gel throughout the course of the season... They are only going to get better...

    We have all of the components of a championship team... Perimeter shooting, Bigs, slashers, hustlers, depth, etc... We may be lacking a bit on the defensive end, but that part of their game seems to be improving quite a bit as well...

    We could be a VERY scary team heading into the months of March-May... Now if these guys can just put it together on the road... We would be a legitimate contender...

    It's an exciting time to be a Jazz fan... :cool:

    ?? KOC is a new GM?? (i.e., Lindsey wasn't the one who brought in all the shooters)

    My mistake, I thought KOC was still the GM but they threw me off with the interview they had with that other guy last night who came from the Spurs... What was that all about??

    When was the last time a team with bad defense and no stars competed for a championship? I wish we were there, but we're not.

    The Jazz could make it to the second round, but are NOT a title contender. We don't have the defense, ability to win on the road, or super star closer--all these things are huge.

    This team has too many flaws, and Corbin is not the man to fix them.

    It's not as easy as Corbin sucks or something extreme. I just don't believe his moves are getting the most out of this team.

    This is what I have been saying. I want to see the 5th seed and making it to the second round. That is a clear step forward for this team. Work on passing that in 13/14.

    Says the guy who obsessed on firing Sloan. Probably Frank Layden before that too.

    I dunno.
    Other than Al, I think we're a pretty good-looking team. Far from scary.
    Now a team with Al, Adam Morrison, Shelden Williams, and Manu Ginobili....that's another story

    At least you didn't drop the "scary good" bomb.

    Al Jefferson should be an All-Star. Figured this thread was as good as any.

    Since the Clips debacle Al has been pretty clearly trying way harder on PnR. It doesn't always work, but then again, in the old days an Al that was a force in transition offense and gets 4 assists was a fantasy as well.

    The Spurs run PnR with Parker/Duncan as well as anyone in the NBA. Take a look at what we did to them in crunch time. Maybe this is not just an aberration. It's on. Al for AS.

    Yes... True we have some issues on the road and are inconsistent on defense... I wouldn't say we were completely horrible on defense however, we just need to play with the same defensive intensity for 4 quarters instead of just a couple...

    Say what you want... But the Spurs have always had our number and were 11-2 on the road going into that game... It was a big win... Not to mention, it speaks volumes about how our offense has improved as we got down early to this team and were able to come back... That is something we were unable to do to the Spurs last year... Usually when we got down to this team, we were unable to come back...

    So is your inability or unwillingness to refute any thing Brown notes stated.

    The difference: Shooters.

    This is why Haywierd is so damn frustrating. Sap this season also to a lesser extent. If those two were consistent then this team would be pretty scrappy & one that nobody would want in the playoffs like Memphis a couple seasons ago.

    But they're not, the Jazz are not, & I'm not getting my hopes up for a second round bust.
