Utah Jazz bigmen Derrick Favors and Rudy Gobert will dominate teams in 2015-2016

While the team is guard light, our bigs are really heavy duty.

Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

The Utah Jazz are still rebuilding, but that's not to say that the team doesn't already have some fantastic building blocks already. The foundation for the team's next long playoff run is already set, and with Gordon Hayward (currently auditioning for USA Basketball's Olympic team) taking care of things on offense, watching him back on defense will be Derrick Favors and Rudy Gobert. Yes, there's uncertainty at the point guard spot with an injured Dante Exum, less than impressive Trey Burke, and rookie Raul Neto . . . there's something Jazzfans should remember. (And no, it's not that Alec Burks, Rodney Hood, Joe Ingles, Trevor Booker, and Trey Lyles are all legit NBA players -- who add depth and swag to our team.) It's that other teams are going to have to try to score against these guys, while being forced to play defense against them on the other side of the ball.

I'm hyped. You should be too.
