If you look at my favorite teams, you can piece together the places I've lived - or in the case of the Dodgers (wife) and Buckeyes (dad), the people I'm related to.

Love the Jazz. Love D-Will. I like him the way I liked Larry Legend growing up.

The new avatar is the logo of the Fort Wayne Zollner Pistons, the team my dad watched growing up.

Ramirez at 3rd

Hey all. I've been a long-time SB NATION reader on SLC Dunk (Utah Jazz). I'm enjoying True Blue LA. It's become my go-to source in lieu of LATimes (with a paywall now) and the ESPN stuff. So...

Tank you very much

There are a couple of themes emerging in each thread that I would like to sort out, especially since there have been so many requests, nay challenges, for cogent arguments. (It's like the knights...

Following the OKC model

Anybody who saw any part of last night's OKC-Denver game has to know that it was utterly epic, and OKC landed on top. They had one fellow score over 50 points, another fellow with 40, and another...

Herein lies the problem...

...if there is a problem, that is. Bill Simmons, who I hate but can't not read, believes strongly that point guard play is significant to every team's success. He talks about how we can't pass...

Thesis/Antithesis: Hayward at 2 or 3

Thesis: Lots of yall have talked about Hayward being misused as a 3 when his more natural, fruitful effort is at 2. Antithesis: Pre-game show on KFAN featured Tom Nissalke and Phil Johnson. (They...

Bill Simmons comes clean on D-Will, Jazz

Bill Simmons has a few things to say about the Jazz, their fans, their players, and an optimistic playoffs prediction. Is there such a thing as a Simmons Jinx?

Reflections from kitchen chair, watching pixelated feed

1. Wesley Matthews is going to save all of us.  He is AK circa 2002.  He is Mansap Circa 2007.  He is KOOF circa 2011.  How did we get so lucky?  Doesn't that usually happen to other people's...

Reflections from Section K, Row 25, Seat 12

Scored Jazz tix again last night, including a free hot dog on which I put mustard, catchup, frysauce and pickles.  Don't knock it 'til you've tried it.  Here's what I learned: 1. Wesley Matthews...

Hate CJ Guidelines, or "A Blog Divided..."

From Bill Simmons, for your consideration

Simmons' column is two days late to predict the Harpring/Maynor trade, but there's a bit of Jazz bait nevertheless: a trade scenario with the Kings that's worthy of review here.  Says Simmons: •...

Reflections from Section 20, Row 21

I got to see Deron's buzzer-brick in person tonight.  Good to have pals with extra tix.  A quick perusal of the game thread shows I missed quite a conversation.  I fully expect to have nightmares...

What Boozer SHOULD HAVE said

We've all complained about the stupid things Boozer has said on the radio (and stupid is the best descriptor here), and it is easy to complain because we've all soured on him.  Here's the...

SIX REASONS WHY MIAMI IS THE BEST PLACE FOR BOOZER EVEN THOUGH THE PLAYER I WANT IS TYRUS THOMAS

1. Sending Boozer to Miami will make him happy and he will play well.  As a fan of the game, I want to see Boozer making post defenders look helpless.  I love his post game so much - the spins, the...

Some Saturday Poetry

There once was a Jazzman named Boozer Whose rhetoric was a confuser: "I'll get raised irregardless" When the market said "far less." He was traded and labeled a loser.   There once was an agent...

This is your team

  I don't think we're going to get a starter for bamBoozler.   If we're lucky, we'll get a fire starter off the bench, like the yet-underused Ronaldo Price.  If we follow our tradition, we'll get a...

Deron is featured three times, but once as the victim. All the footage is good.

interviews with jazzmen, including KOC, interesting

I'm a bit concerned that with 7 days ticking till we lose Sap, KOC and Randy Rigby are out golfing. Nevertheless, the comments are interesting, and the footage makes Sap look worth matching.

Pistons won't go for Boozer

Looks like the Pistons won't go after Boozer or Millsap. Our chances of dumping Boozer are getting slimmer. He better play his guts out this year.

Artest wants to re-sign with Rockets

If we clear Boozer and another guy, would anybody want Artest in Jazz Blue? (Let's assume for sake of the conversation that all this happened while Sloan was tilling an Indiana field and couldn't make it to his cell phone...)
