The Burks/Clark/Hayward/Harris/Kanter Press

Anyone excoriating Corbin for the decision to close the Boston game with this unorthodox lineup, I suggest you take a second look at what happened. That's exactly what I did. When Favors left the...

Grading Corbin: Specific Evaluative Criteria

I've long advocated giving Tyrone Corbin until the end of this season to prove, once and for all, whether he deserves to remain head coach of the Jazz. To be blunt, I'm skeptical. But I feel he is...

...and the Utah Jazz Select: No one. Hurray?

With picks 14, 21, and 46, the Jazz can genuinely help themselves in their rebuilding process in tomorrow night's draft, because there are good players to be had. But just for fun, let's look at...

Shabazz Muhammad: Could We, Would We, Should We?

A year ago at this time, many pegged Shabazz Muhammad as a surefire top three pick in the 2013 NBA Draft. Many believed he was the odds on favorite to go first overall, a belief that lasted well...

The Jazz/Nuggets Reconstruction Draft

I appreciate Yucca's discouragement in his breaking point post, but I don't share it. I would rather be the Jazz than the Nuggets, and honestly, it isn't a difficult decision. To explain why,...

Al the Conqueror... or Not

Amar’s post comparing Al Jefferson to other post up scoring options, both contemporary and historical, got me thinking. Jefferson may get more criticism than all the other current Jazz players...

Absolute Must-Read Take on the Utah Jazz by Zach Lowe

Today's article by Zach Lowe in Grantland is maybe the best national piece I've read on the Jazz, as a current team and a historic franchise, in years. You need to read it. Really. Here are some...

Kanter and Favors on the Bench to Stay: If You Look at Just the Right Angle, Stan Van Gundy Looks a Lot Like Tyrone Corbin

There's a lot of Tyrone Corbin hate in the world. Some of it I feel is deserved, some isn't. A great deal of the dissatisfaction and frustration stems from his insistence on playing veterans over...

Which Point Guard Makes the Starting Lineup the Most Competative?

A while ago I did a post comparing what the stats say about the effect of both Mo Williams and Jamaal Tinsley on the same lineups. The result showed that, more often than not, Tinsley helped more...

What Style of Play at the Point Best Helps the Jazz Win?

A look league-wide shows that the pure facilitator point guard role in the modern NBA may have given way with Rajon Rondo's knee. The remaining guards in this year's All-Star game include one...

Is There Room for All Us Fans in the SLC Dunk Tent?

This post started as a comment on Diana's downbeat, where she brought up the issue of Jazz fans turning on one another. It grew into this, so please forgive the length. I appreciate that Amar...

Hypothetical Trade from a Jazz Fan

Hello, Sactown. Let me start by saying how sick everyone is about the compounding catastrophe that has been (is?) Kings ownership. Some of the most exciting playoff series in my memory were those...

Point Guard of the Future Option 2--The Draft

Previously I listed some young point guards already in the NBA that might be targets for the Jazz as their point guard of the future. The possibilities were in many ways underwhelming. Here, I...

A Plea for Patience (but only until Feb. 21st)

Okay, okay, I get it, just like everyone else gets it. Jazz fandom wants Al Jefferson and/or Paul Millsap gone, shipped off, traded--now. I get it. While we can and do argue in circles as to who...

By "Point Guard of the Future," We Mean Who Exactly?

Jazz fans are spoiled when it comes to point guard play. The longer we've been a fan of the team, the more spoiled we are: Deron Williams (2010 - 2006) and, before that, John Stockton (2003 -...

Could the Jazz Bring In Paul George?
