All survivors! Stay strong, help is on the way! We're almost there! The season of redemption is nigh! A season of Gobert, Favors, Hayward, Burks, Hood, Burke, Booker, Lyles, Pleiss, Ingles, Millsap, Neto, and more is just about here!
It's so close everyone, SLC Dunk will continue to offer up daily rations to the community to keep us afloat!
In the meantime, just take a little glimpse at this cheesy low-quality countdown (which gives me MySpace nostalgia for some reason) when you're wondering how much longer we have:
We will push through,
Consider this your reminder that Derrick Favors is awesome, we have the honor of having him on our team for at least 3 more seasons, he is more than worth the Deron Williams trade alone, he has become a part of the community in Utah, AND
Derrick Favors is currently the most underrated player in the league!
Now that we have that reminder out of the way, a very well done article on Favors by Adi Joseph was done yesterday, take a gander:
Here's my favorite portion from that article:
One of my favorite NBA writers Zach Lowe ranked all of the NBA team logos!
Where did the Jazz rank in the hierarchy of glorious NBA logodom?
Tues column: Ranking NBA team logos, worst to best, with expert commentary, news nuggets, backstories: http://t.co/BQ9fgTsuu2— Zach Lowe (@ZachLowe_NBA) September 8, 2015
A bombshell was announced from that article that will please everyone who is yearning to put the masterpiece that is the Jazz note back to the forefront of the NBA spotlight!
"Good news: Utah is on track for an official return to the note logo as its primary mark for the 2016-17 season. They might crack the top five here next time around." -Zach Lowe
The NBA finally did it, the earth-shattering change of which there can be no return from!
It's all over now folks!
Say goodbye forever...
NBA DIVISIONS MEANING ANYTHING!!!!
Playoff seeding no longer will be mucked up by division winners clinching a top 4 seed, now it is purely by win-loss record!
We're just one monster leap away from eliminating conference all together to allow for the top 16 teams to make the playoffs instead of unworthy 7th or 8th best teams from the weaker conference sneaking in over the superior 9th or 10th best teams of the stronger conference.
A couple of writers (Tom Ziller and Paul Flannery) from SLC Dunk's mothership SB Nation have been breaking down the best players of each decade. They reached the 90s today with the click-baitesque headline:
"Scottie Pippen was the 2nd-best player of the '90s"
That is quite the statement to make, I'll let you all decide what to make of it.
Also, peer further to see if these writers put Stockton and Malone on the All-90s first team or if they are flat-out wrong!
