How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Wins

Trey said that talk of tanking is insulting to him and the other young players. Perhaps they should be insulted. Let's see why.

40 at 40 Part 21: Jeff Hornacek and roster urgency

The '88 Jazz led by a young stars Stockton and Malone almost beat the Lakers in the 2nd round. Five seasons later they were an easy out in the first around. What happened and what changed? Jeff Hornacek is part of the answer for sure, but . . .

40 at 40 Part 20: Halfway there

So this is the 20th post in this series, the halfway mark. The Jazz are at the halfway mark of their season as well. And many of these guys seem like half finished products. Such synergy. Much meaningfulness. Connected. Wowe.

40 at 40 Part 17: Karl Malone is under rated

How do you call a Hall of Fame player who has two MVP awards, two All-Star Game MVP awards, two Gold Medals, a 14 time All-Star, 14 time All-NBA Team member, a 4 time All-NBA Defensive Team member "under rated"? By looking at the numbers. That's how.

40 at 40 Part 14: Stockton is better than your PG

40 at 40 Part 12: Is Jeremy more than a dunker?

Jeremy Evans is in his fourth season in the NBA, and people still don't know what he is capable of. Is he a real rotation player in the NBA, or will he never be anything more than just a dunker?

40 at 40 Part 9: Trey Burke is better than . . . ?

Since the retirement of John Stockton and the ascension of Deron Williams, the point guard spot in Utah has been a cause for concern. How does Trey Burke compare to the 'forgettables' of this post-Stockton era? How does he compare to D-Will?

40 at 40 Part 7: Production vs. Payment

It's important to get paid in the NBA. It's also important to produce, so that you can keep getting paid. There's a reason why contract year is a real term, when you have to some guys pick it up. Let's take a look at who is producing for the Jazz.

Some how the Utah Jazz have the rep of being a team that goes crazy on the fouls. I wonder where that idea came from?
