    Utah Jazz are the brand new owners of the 9th spot in the west.

    Here comes the Pau!

    Damien Lillard could put the Jazz 12th in the West. Come on KOC, trade Jefferson and let's get this party started.

    Like JGolds I am against tanking. We are not the GSTankers

    If they have truly given up then at least play Favors, Hayward, Burks and Kanter heavy minutes.

    I wonder if tankville is anything like the old Atari Battle Tanks. The box looked real cool, and you thought you wanted it[​IMG]

    but when you turned it on it didn't quite meet your expectations.

    I think this ^^^^^^ is a sign an omen of what we will think of tankville once we are acutally in it.

    The best way for the jazz to tank would be to reduce The Four's minutes even more.

    If they take your advice and play favors, hayward, burks and kanter heavy minutes then we just might become really good.

    I agree but this is the Jazz we are talkign about. Them benching the vets and playing the young guys is tanking in their minds. Then lo and behold! Bam! Winning

    If that means discarding this fallacy that the vets are doing anything besides wasting everyone's time and moving forward with seeing what we've got with The Four (or whatever), then please. Let wins or losses come.

    This is really neither here nor there, but the reason the Jazz have talked about and tinkered with Burks as a "PG" is because he's the only perimeter player the Jazz have that can beat anyone off the dribble and get into the lane with any kind of regularity.

    Whatever you want to call him, he's a guard that can handle the ball and make things happen.

    The Jazz just had an off night on a back-to-back road game. Not a reason to panic. That said, the Jazz have to figure out what they're going to do with the roster if this team is going to have any continuity. If Burks and Favors had any opportunity to create some chemistry, that could be something special.

    Burks anf Favs running the PNR that would be a sick combo, athleticsim and speed... look out its the (favurks) train coming down the tracks.

    I like that trade.... its a start at least. Upgrade the backup point guard position and get burks alot of minutes at the two. Sounds good!

    Is there anyone even worth tanking for in the draft this year? I havent seen anyone that really impresses yet. Last year would have been a good year to do it. Anthony Davis and Lillard would have been worth tanking for. And probably a few others.

    So the jazz tank, there is no way they can out tank Sacramento, Washington, Toronto, Now Erleans, Charlotte. So the Jazz end up with a 9-12 pick--whats that going to get them? A 22 minute a night bench player or a guy who can't get off the bench?

    Even if they beat the odds and end up with a top 3 pick, do you think that guy will play more than 15 minutes a night.

    Welcome to 'wait another decade for a franchise player-ville', aka Milwaukee.

    agreed... tanking would benifit basically every oginization in the nba... except utah... even when we tank on accident and get a good playre he gets to sit on a bench like all the other rookies for a few years.. tanking is a failing idea... all aroubnd massive fail. the only plus is that intanking we might actually start winning by playing the best players, but it would be on accident.
