Has there ever been a more tragic case of injuries in Utah Jazz history? Every year it seems like it’s supposed to be Dante Exum’s year. And right when things are turning in his direction and he’s looking like a top 5 pick, some crappy injury happens. As a result, Dante continues to descend the ranking of Utah’s most valuable player.

Coming in 7th last year, he was voted in at number 10 this time around. Let’s all hope that’s a one time thing and this truly is his year. He could be a big piece to Utah’s success this year if they want to reach the high goals they’ve set for themselves.

Man that’s a lot of missed games. It really is the worst. I just want to see this kid play ball! I’ve admittedly gotten to the point where any positive production he provides at this point is just gravy. But I also think he could really increase the ceiling of this team, so I’m hoping for the best from Dante this year. His value on the defensive perimeter and wicked fast first step could be so valuable on this team if he puts it together.

His shooting is also going to need to improve if he wants to make his career a long and successful one. If he can get just an extra 5% on his 3’s that would go a long ways. Will the Jazz finally get return on their investment tank of several seasons ago when they were rewarded with the number 5 overall pick?
