Random Topics Galore   3 comments

Why not? A quick rundown of things going on in the NBA world right now (or at least a while ago). Or around the Jazz blogosphere. Whatever. It’s news for someone somewhere.

My Utah Jazz has a Deron Williams recap up. It’s a bit late (though not the 3 months he claims), but it’s all good. I will update my recap to include a link to it after I finish with this.

Hart Exercises Option; Thoughts On Last Year’s Rookies   4 comments

A couple of topics to discuss… the first is the exercising of a player option that helps crowd the roster even more, and the 2nd is a news article with a couple of interesting points.

Quick Updates   Leave a comment

Just a couple of quick updates while I work on the next season recap.

The Deron Williams season recap was updated to include a link to SLC Dunk’s Deron recap. The recaps are supposed to be put up by all 3 of us (BBJ, I & the guys over at MUJ) on the same day… but that didn’t work out so well this time. I’ll update it again when MUJ gets theirs up. I’d give you a teaser on the next recap… but I have no idea who we’re recapping.
dwillfan looks at a chart praising Chris Paul (that’s all anyone in the NBA is capable of doing now-days, so it seems) and finds a much different (and better) meaning in it. Also, a look at the ideal Finals match-up, one I back completely.

I’ve updated the Jazz mock draft watch page. There still isn’t much happening… mostly big guys. And 2 big guys in that. There are only 3 mocks out of the 12 I have up that don’t give the Jazz one of these 2 guys. Interesting… and maybe even a bit disheartening for Kyrylo Fesenko fans like myself.

The only Jazz news I can find anywhere concerns ‘Sap’s thumb. And I posted that 3 days ago. I guess we might be in for a boring off-season.

Jerry Sloan Needs To Decide.   Leave a comment

Gordon Monson, a writer for the SL Trib that I rarely agree with, has written a piece for today’s paper in which he states that Jerry Sloan needs to make up his mind, not just for this year, but for years to come. And this time, I agree with him.

Season Recap: Deron Williams   4 comments

Player: PG Deron Williams
Regular Season Stats:

MPG PPG APG RPG SPG FG% FT% 3-PT% TO
37.3 18.8 10.5 3.0 1.1 50.7% 80.3% 39.5% 3.40

Playoff Stats:

MPG PPG APG RPG SPG FG% FT% 3-PT% TO
42.8 21.6 10.0 3.6 0.6 49.2% 77.3% 50.0% 3.08

The season recap will involve recaps by me, Basketball John over at SLC Dunk, and the guys over at My Utah Jazz. Here is SLC Dunk’s, with a bit of a teaser, if you wish to call it that.

But Deron made a name for himself again in the playoffs. He kept the Jazz in most games and almost single-handidly brought the Jazz back in game 6 against the Lakers. I don’t think that there’s anyone else that you want taking that shot in that situation. I think more people were surprised that it didn’t go in. Boozer can lay claim as this being their team, but for me and I believe most fans, it’s Deron’s team. He’s the only one that’s shown he’s the leader and not just claimed it. As Deron goes, so goes the Jazz.

And here is My Utah Jazz’s recap. Teaser…

There was no other player I wanted taking the game tying shot in Game 6 than Deron Williams. Yeah, he missed. But he had officially solidified himself as an All-NBA player, and the future of this franchise. Every other player became expendable when it came to resigning D-Will.

My recap is below.

‘Sap Surgery Successful.   2 comments

Well, that’s good. ‘Sap underwent surgery Friday. It was successfully performed by Dr. Steven Huish, and involved the procedure of repairing a torn ligament in his left thumb.

Millsap’s thumb will be placed in a cast for two weeks, at which time he will be re-evaluated. Treatment for the following four weeks will be determined. Millsap is expected to be fully healed in six weeks.

Good. Here’s hoping he’s even better next season.

Utah Jazz Mock Draft Watching   Leave a comment

For all of you that enjoy looking at mock drafts, let me direct you over to myMock Draft Watch page, where I’ll attempt to keep up with who all the mocks have the Jazz taking. An early look is fairly boring… just 3 guys show up, and one of them only shows up once. But it’s still a quick glance of where the Jazz might (should?) be looking. There is a link to the page on the right hand side, up near the top (just below the search bar).

I hope to add the 2nd round soon, but there are some issues. Mainly the fact that some sites have the Jazz having picks 44 & 53, and others have the Jazz with picks 46 & 53. Hopefully that gets settled out soon, and then I’ll add the 2nd round. If I’ve skipped over any mocks, please let me know and I’ll add them as soon as possible.

Why Can’t J-Slo…   Leave a comment

… be like Greg Popovich?

I mean… just look at the title of the article. “Popovich has had starring role in Spurs’ successes.”
As for J-Slo… what Jazz successes? They’ve been close, but a push here and games in San Antonio there have kept the Jazz title-less. Popovich has titles. Plenty of them.
