Once Gobert is gone, regardless of what you get in return this squad cannot make the playoffs because of how bad they are defensively.
I agree. And there is still plenty of time to makes moves around the fringes of this team. I also imagine Danny will keep trying to dump Rudy.It all depends on how good Mitchell/Gobert are. If they both come out super motivated to make it work and arent babies, the Jazz will be a playoff team.
I kind of hope the one All Star we have is Gobert, the one they were rumored to have shopped heavily to get rid of. Would be a nice egg in the face moment. An epic backhanded compliment.At this rate if the Jazz are going to run it back I'd rather see them be absolutely terrible and end up with a top 10 pick. If we're gonna see a train wreck unfold I want to see some big *** explosions. Give me players wont talk to each other, have fights in the locker room, Ryan struggling to get his 2 show ponies to play nice so he can parade them around at All Star weekend. Just go full blown drama show. That will be more entertaining than just simply running it back and going through to motions just to lose in the first round again.
I want a full merciless rebuild but I think they will keep Mitchell this season.Honest answer? That's good. It just means a better draft position.
Idk if Gobert has to develop an outside shot(though I would 100% have him try), but they got to make a better effort of getting him the ball when he's open. Can't be missing him 3-4 times per game.The reality is we are an aging team without any young prospects or draft picks. We are also over the cap and can't make a significant signing. We are not a destination where players are going to come for below market value, or force their way here. There really isn't a likely path forward to being better. Any trade we make is most likely going to be a net neutral/net negative trade.
We've known this for awhile and is the reason there is a large number of posters here saying to blow it up.
There are some ways that we can get better without a major overhaul, but those scenarios aren't very likely to either happen or make a big difference:
- coaching change
- buy low candidates
- Don commits to defense
- Rudy develops an outside shot
Yeah, cuz the Utah Jazz were the only entity to be impacted by Covid.Before COVID plagued us we were a top 3 team in the West. I'm confident we can get back to winning ways. Free Agency hasn't even started yet, and everyone's freaking out. Relax.
