Guys, the reason we won tonight in Denver is because FESS was there! He was sitting two rows in front of me and rooting on the Jazz! Of course I spoke with him briefly - he said his knee is almost back to 100% and he's looking to sign with a team soon. Love the guy - what a pleasant surprise to see the former Jazz center in person for the first time!
Early glimpses of the schedule leaking out. Looks like the Jazz will be playing the Lakers in LA on December 27th. That would be a relative late start for the Jazz given that there are five games tipping off on the 25th with another set to start on the 26th. It could also mean that the Jazz will be playing their second game of a back to back or perhaps in the middle of a B2B2B themselves? They'll get another crack at LA early after beating the Lakers in LA late last season for the first time in a decade. More from LA Times I know you're all sobbing for the Lakers right now. If you want the conspiracy, then of course you have to mention how this favors the Lakers because they won't have to have a B2B2B down the stretch to break their old, weary, legs.
I'm recreating the NBA Logo(using active players) for every team. Here's Utah, featuring Paul Millsap.
Whats up Jazz fans? I'm a writer/illustrator over at Bright Side of the Sun and am currently doing a project where I am doing 30 illustrations (1 player from each of the 30 NBA teams) over 30 days. Day 19 features your own Al Jefferson and I thought I'd share it with you. Feel free to visit and check out this and more as well as follow the project. Comments are welcome and appreciated. -Dustin

(Photo Credit C.Shah) Andrei Kirilenko was spotted last night in Las Vegas dancing in a "no way is his ankle sprained" manner on a riser in a dance club. Some guys I know were in town for a Bachelor Party and happened to get this picture with the magnanimous Russian. I also do not approve of the hipster mustache, but AK is cool with it, so who am I to judge?
