You know what happens when you win games and make the playoffs? People notice you. Here's some very nice praise by NBA.com's John Schuhmann for our Utah Jazz, specifically for forward Paul Millsap and head coach Tyrone Corbin.
John Schuhmann: My Stud of the Year, the guy who impressed me most whenever I caught him on League Pass, is Paul Millsap. His numbers weren’t as good as they were last year, but he’s hit a lot of big shots for the Jazz and is a plus-195 for a team that has outscored its opponents by only 39 points overall. I never believed in the Jazz until last week’s Blogtable, but I’ll be the first to say now that Tyrone Corbin deserves some serious Coach of the Year consideration and that Millsap is the man. My Dud of the Year has got to be Lamar Odom, who we’ve already discussed extensively.
Thanks a lot John! And check the rest of the NBA.com's blogger round table here! And don't forget that you should already be following John on Twitter @JohnSchuhmann !
