The Utah Jazz finished up the week with a loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder (they were down by about 10 at the half, and ended up rolling over us in the second half), but leave with a 3 and 2 record. What the Jazz also leave with is a better understanding of who these players are, under the microscope.
Some of them are veterans, others rookies -- still others pros looking to make it in the NBA, or stick with the NBA. I think some of them, by their play, deserve invites to training camp. That said, an invite into training camp doesn't mean they'll have a fair shot to make the team. (After all, we are kinda top heavy)
