Welp guys and gals, the NBA Season is - at most - 7 more games long. We had a good run in 2011-2012. The lockout made everything crazy and we had nothing. Then the lockout ended and things got crazy for another reason. The Jazz had their ups and downs this year - but when they figured out what they wanted to do (make the playoffs), the then went out there and won the games they needed to win order to make it. The playoffs were short and bittersweet, as we were dumped in 4 games. That said, the last quarter of the last game of the season gave us all a lot of hope for our future.

We didn't have things go our way for the draft lottery, but we still have a draft pick (2nd round, pick #47). We talk about it here.

We also have around 5 true free agents, and a healthy amount of cap space, but most of our money tied up in some veterans.

Also our guys have a lot of work to do to improve 'internally'. Enes Kanter and Alec Burks are at P3. Gordon Hayward and Derrick Favors will be playing on the US Selects team. And we still have summer league in Orlando to look forward to.

If that's not enough, there's also that whole Olympics thing, where we so far have the US, Tunisia, Argentina, China, Spain, France, and Australia duking it out. (Also, Angola, Nigeria, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Venezuela, Jordan, Korea, Russia, Macedonia, Lithuania, Greece, and New Zealand are in the pre-Olympic Wild-Card tournament that'll take place in July -- three of those teams will make it to the Olympics.)

Oh, and there's also trades which we are going to touch upon this week.
