Trade Rumors Involving the Jazz

Let me tell you what the plan was... Donovan stays in front... he did not and got beat badly. He didn't take anything away from Spencer at all. He didn't pressure from behind. He wasn't pushing Spencer one way... and Rudy came from the other side to help.

He got smoked... it happens. You don't have to come up with some elaborate explanation how that was part of the plan. It wasn't.

Now Bogey could rotate to the corner then House or Donovan need to rotate but everyone was watching the ball. That should tell you the plan wasn't for one guy to get cooked on a straight line drive because everyone would be, hopefully, getting ready to rotate.

This is the type of stuff that gets you lit up. Donovan straight got cooked and if you can't see that I can't discuss it anymore.

I mean without a screen he got a full step in front and had both sides of the rim available. Donovan didn't attempt to even get a hand on the pass... it was really bad.
I said Donovan didn't work hard enough on the play, but I believe the play was designed to funnel him to Rudy. We do that a lot.

I would rather us play a defense where we don't funnel and we just help as a team.

no... that wasn't the plan... "funneling" is really drop big pick and roll coverage. In iso you stay in front. Rudy is the help guy but the plan is to not allow guys to get to the most crucial part of the court with ease. Sorry.

My pet conspiracy theory this year is that the NBA is going to move the Knicks into the top 4 of the draft in an effort to entice the Jazz to trade Mitchell to the Knicks, similar to the Lakers moving up in the lottery to complete the Anthony Davis trade with the Pels.

There are plenty of times we allow penetration with the expectation they get swallowed up by Rudy. And it's not always a PnR situation.

It's okay if we don't agree.

I mean sure... Its also okay to admit that Donovan almost surely just got cooked there.

I know you think you are defending Donovan but you really aren't helping his case.

You offend their God Gobert and they will try to insult you. Sad thing is Rudy doesn't give one **** about them and neither do we.
Yeah, I don’t know, seems like some kind of an old boys club around here. Whatever, too many petty little games for me. I mean I usually don’t stick around this long in the off-season but there’s been this palpable undercurrent of change since Ainge got hired and I just wanted to be in the know. So I respond occasionally to something that piques my interest and it’s generally an outright ignore. I generally have a lot more fun in the game threads but most these off-season guys are just here to jack each other off like they’re real GMs and coaches. Maybe if you kiss the ring enough times. I’ll never know cause that ain’t me. I really don’t have time for the masquerade anyway. Even in a couple weeks when I retire, I mean how many hypothetical Jazz scenarios can we entertain with our close circle of jerks before we’ve had enough. No wonder some of these guys are so god damn miserable!
