NBA Podcast: Utah Jazz hire Quin Snyder, reactions; and the NBA Finals reverse jinx

Streeter Lecka

Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose.

I like being wrong about things. It makes life a little more fun when you are right. Before Game 3 of the NBA Finals between the San Antonio Spurs and the Miami Heat I was on the Phil Naessens show again. I suggested that Miami would win, with some manner of ease. The opposite happened. I guess this is a reverse jinx because it was recorded hours before the game. Thankfully, I'm not always right or wrong. Sometimes I'm just in the middle.

And that's where we have it when I also talked with Phil about the Utah Jazz, specifically about the Quin Snyder hiring, and answer some questions about Gordon Hayward. Do the Jazz have any contingencies for if they can't re-sign him?

If you are the Jazz do you have a contingency for if Hayward walks? Or do you never let it get that far? If you do have a contingency - -what is it?
