We are nearing the all-star break and lots of stuff buzzing around with the Utah Jazz
. But theres one topic that stays close to my heart..Thats the "Furtue." Yes thats Cour Four. Reason being is because their our only hope to winning a championship in the next few years. Overall I think their trending in the right direction but heres my individual analysis.
: There two things Im disappointed at. First Alec burks shooting numbers. 23% from three. 36% from the field. 66% free trow. His fault. He need to play better when he gets mintues. Second the minutes situation. Not his fault. Despite those numbers I love Alec burks. Numbers can be fix. He has shown me that speed and atheletism that cant be teach. I feel he deserve much more minutes.
Gorddie: Is growing very nicely. Craftieness beyond his years in the league. Much like Manu Ginobili
had in his early years. Still underrated athlete and defender. Growing killer instinct. Coming of those srceen much more ready to shoot with is why he is lighting it up. History shows he really burst after all-star breaks so im ready to see him in the second half of the season.
Child-Man-Beast Thing Favors: Working very hard on that offensive game. He bound to get there on account of his work ethic. He has shown me improvments. Defensive game ELITE. Chances outcomes of games off it. One thing I am worried about. Why is he not DOMININATING second units? If he is so ready to start, shouldnt he be much higher in the sixth man of the year disscussion. Remember...like when James Hardning was coming off the bench.
: Has grown alot from this point last years. But progression was all I was looking for out of Kanter. That jump shoot is nice. Post Moves are nice. Scrappy attitude that we have seen since his minutes went up...nice. Still he turning the ball over at a alraming rate. But I still think that is due to him not playing in like 3 years. He can be a really good center for us though.
: Is not the best back-up point guard in the league for nothing. This guy is good. Blazing speed. Tremendous ball pressure.(on boths sides of the ball) Amazing athletism. Him, Burks, and Favors would give us an very athletic team.( OKC, HEAT...following where in going?) That trade needs to happen for us. I just dont know if it is realistic. Clippers
are a very good team right now so why stir things up. Their coach did say that trade offers for him was a good thing. I really think we could make a case that in the playoffs Milsap would have more value to them as a backup big man than Bledsoe would be as a third string point guard(when billups returns).
