The Downbeat #1232: Merry Gifmas!

Justin Ford-USA TODAY Sports

To all SLC Dunk editors, writers, contributors, commenters, lurkers, readers, trolls, and curmudgeons, and to every Utah Jazz fan out there: Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. May your chosen manner of celebration be joyous, and may the season bring you the hope for the future that I have for our beloved basketball team. Thanks to all of you.

I don't have much to give you by way of gifts, but as always, I hope gifs will suffice. Enjoy.

(Sincerely, though, thanks to all of you. It's been a fun few months writing here regularly again, and I really appreciate everyone who has taken the time to read, comment and share my articles, or anyone else's, here at SLC Dunk. The best is yet to come, for the Utah Jazz and for each one of us. Cheers, y'all.)
