Utah Jazz “Friday for the Weekend” Episode 015

All-Stars, snubbed stars, bugs, and an odd request

NBA: Phoenix Suns at Utah Jazz Jeff Swinger-USA TODAY Sports

Breakfast Discussion

While we had some players recognized this past week with Dante Exum and Trey Lyles going to the Rising Stars game for the world team, and Gordon Hayward being selected as an All-Star; we had a couple of notable snubs. First Rudy Gobert who is destroying teams at the rim this year and playing at an All-Star level, was overlooked for an All-Star nod; then to rub salt in the wounds of all Jazz fans, Joe Ingles was passed over for the three point shooting contest (despite currently being 2nd in 3 point percentage and leading the NBA in this area for most of the year). While Rudy quoted some Brian Tracy:

Slo-Mo Joe told jokes:

At least we’ll always have this:

Worst Analogy

There were several SLC Dunkers who posted an entry for the Worst Analogy Championship Belt last week. The contenders:

- mitchdowd24 for comparing Lakers, Warriors, and Rockets to diseases

- 15,806 assists for making the analogy that the video clip from The Natural was like Gordon Hayward on the USA Olympic Select Team

- Fesenko for President related the clip to the 2013-14 Utah Jazz and Corbin’s vet bias

- gubihero philosophized the clip was about last’s year’s club and the Jazz are done losing close games this year

I’m going to try something different this week with regards to the WACB. You get to decide last week’s winner. To vote, go to last week’s episode (see the link above) and “like” the Dunker who had the best worst analogy. The Dunker with the most likes will win the belt next week. I don’t care if you vote for yourself or create a thousand accounts in order to pad your “likes”.

Okay, now this week’s Worst Analogy clip from Starship Troopers:

Good luck!

Cap Space

Trey Lyles has an interesting request:

Not sure if he’s talking about the uniforms or Karl Malone and John Stockton in their primes. Okay, so he’s talking about the uniforms - go easy on him he’s Canadian (my apologies for offending Canadian’s everywhere.)
