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.

Big Shoes to Fill

Let's suppose the Jazz don't win the championship this year, and let's suppose that Jerry takes ownership for that (given that this is one of his most talented teams ever) and he decides to hang up...

Win one for the proletariat: a pre-game speech

My favorite part of the page: Nickname: Named Jazz following after a contest, over other entries that included Dukes, Cajuns, Pilots, Crescents, Deltas, Knights. The city of New Orleans is a hot bed for Jazz Music. (Maybe the Hornets could reinvent under one of those names - I like "the Dukes." Pilots is surely a reference to riverboat pilots. There's also the old alt. football league team, The New Orleans Pelicans... well, they've got to do something about their name.)

Thoughts in no particular order

I think I really like the Blazers.  If the Jazz go out before the TB, I will be rooting for them.  (Is there a purer shooter in the NBA right now than Brandon Roy?)   If Sascha Pavlovic and Mo...

Deron Sucks

Sorry if that headline startles anybody.  I'm just hoping the disrespect will make it back to D-Will himself, piss him off, and fire him up.  We are moving up the WC ladder bit by bit and we can't...

Jazz Car Dealerships

In honor of LHM, let's hypothesize about the kinds of car dealerships he might have given each player on the roster, given the type of players they are.  For example, Matt Harpring would only sell...

"Not counting Dwight Howard," he said, "how many centers in the NBA under the age of 25 are better -- right now -- than Koufos?"' Here's Pat Forde's answer to that question.

Assist Leaders

D-Will is not included on the usual page because he's not "on pace to play in X number of games." But this list doesn't qualify that, it just takes averages in games played. Look at the minutes played compared to assists averaged. And I think D is just getting warmed up.

Brownie or Boler poll

If I was coaching the Nets game, I would have put AK or Brewer on Kevin Martin.  He was terrific.  Maybe I would have put Millsap on him.  Or Gary Briggs.  Anything.  After all our whining about...

Hello Simmons.

Say that the way Jerry says, "Hello Newman." The self-important driveler whose only criteria for judging ball-players is their potential celebrity has done it again. In the opening of the article...

Starbury+Spurs=bad for Jazz

If Starbury went to San Antonio (as ESPN's rumors reports), that would pop the Spurs back into the top 3 in the west, in my opinion.   No way he goes rogue in that setting.  It would be all...

Kragthorpe's Article

Worth discussion. I think Okur is far more important to the team (he's kind of an X-factor when he's on) than Krag does; and I need to believe that CJ will get a chance to earn his money this year. What do you all think?

Boozer and D-Will on Road to Redemption

You can watch Team USA on Youtube here.   There's a lot of chummy moments with D-Will and CP3 and J-Kidd.  I have to admit that I wish there were more chummy moments of D-Will with Boozer.
