I have to say this would suck. The Jazz have had a draft party at the ESA the past couple of years and it doesn't seem like there are plans to have one this year.
I don't know why they would suddenly stop doing this. It's great to be around a bunch of other crazy Jazz fans and to hear all of the thoughts on who should be drafted.
KOC even told the crowd who the pick was going to be right after he had phoned it in to the NBA. It was great to see the behind-the-scenes action while watching to draft on ESPN.
It will be a shame if they don't have it this year. All they have to do is open the ESA and pay a few people to cover concessions (okay, maybe a little more than that). No one will care if they don't have the free hot dog and drink. What a wasted opportunity. There are die-hard Jazz fans that live for this kind of thing.
Let's hope there's a quick about face to get this done.
