Re: ISH's FIVE QUESTIONS: Utah Jazz Edition
1. Jazz take on expiring contracts of Biedrins, Jefferson, and Rush for 2 first rounders and 3 second rounders. Should the Jazz have done more with their tremendous cap space?
--What else could they have gotten? Easier to say they could have got this or that, but we don't know what the market was. Also, Rush is a quality basketball player. Any chance he resigns? I'm guessing not.
2. TRUE or FALSE: In the tradition of John Stockton and Deron Williams, ----Trey Burke will develop into another great Jazz Point Guard.
--If great = Stockton or D-Will level then I severely doubt it. I think he will be about as good as Kemba will become, which is a quality starter in this league. Except the NBA is so stacked right now at the PG position that a quality starter is slightly below average overall.
3. Alec Burks, Derrick Favors, Gordon Hayward, Enes Kanter: Which of these players has the most untapped potential?
--Probably Kanter. It has to be Kanter or Favors and I have never seen the Favors high school hype (next KG).
4. "HE'S ON THE JAZZ, MAN! HE'S ON THE JAZZ.": Which "Warrior" will most take advantage of this new opportunity. Andris Biedrins, Richard Jefferson, or Brandon Rush?
--Well Utah didn't let go Jefferson and Millsap to give Beans all the minutes. RJ is just a bad basketball player now. Rush by default? If he's healed well, I think he's better than any Utah wing who isn't white and does Subway commercials.
5. TRUE or FALSE: Burke, Burks, Hayward, Favors, Kanter: If Jazz keep this fivesome together, eventually they will develop into a Championship contending unit.
--False. I don't think Burke or Burks develop into more than average NBA players and your backcourt can't be average if you want to contend in this NBA.
