Wow! Who would ever guess that we are already 40 games into this Jazz season! I sure wouldn't. It feels like we are just getting to know this crazy team.

While I was driving home from running errands a song came on my iPod. Its the song that reminds me and JasonForTheLove of our Utah Jazz



It made me a little sad thinking that we once again are having to watch one year vet mercenaries have starring roles on our team when we really should be learning if the F5 could all play together.

I try not to think about it and just enjoy the season, its a little hard. I do enjoy most of what's going on, its fun that Trey has made EVERYONE so much better. Its fun to see Favors get minutes. I love Burks doing Burk thangs. But to me it seems like there could be so much more.

Favors on being patient: (via Moni)

Favors on having to be patient as a young guy
It’s tough, you know? You a top pick, you know, you watch the other guys in your draft, you know, they come out, starting for they teams, being the face of they team, and you know, just playing. And you just gotta sit there and wait for it. And wait…When you getting minutes as a young player, you know, you gotta take, gotta make the most of it. You know, I found that out firsthand my rookie year.

I'd like Favors to know that we think its tough too.

Anyways!!

There is a game tonight and its on national TV. Playing the Spurs in San Antonio will be a good measuring stick for this Jazz team. They have won 6-of-10 games including a one game win streak, beating the Nuggets at the ESA.
