As up and down as the start to the Utah Jazz season has been, at least they aren’t the Washington Wizards who continue to be a raging tirefire.
It was reported that everyone on the roster is available for the right price and it looks like some offers are leaking.

This offer of Marvin Williams and Nic Batum as salary filler from the Hornets for Bradley Beal (gee, how kind of you Michael!) is laughably bad.
Surely the Jazz can offer something better. What do you think it would take to get either Bradley Beal or Otto Porter on the Jazz?
If you haven’t noticed Naz Mitrou Long has playing really well for the Salt Lake City Stars.

Naz is lightning fast and a lot of fun to watch. The story this season for him is can he become a consistent shooter?
If he can, he has the ability to be a really nice spark off the bench for the Jazz.
The Jazz recently held their annual Thanksgiving meal for those in need.

When all is said and done, the Jazz are a blessing to this community not just for the entertainment and the economy, but because of how much they look to reach out to those in need.
Let’s play the comparison game. What does this block remind you of by Dwyane Wade?

Can’t think of it? Okay, let me remind you.

Also, because it’s important for history, and archeology, I’m going to leave this excellent tweet by Basketball John here.

H/T to Reddit User r/peeshiver for this find. At 4:30 Allen Iverson talks about the three nastiest fan bases he had to play against. Guess which one is in his top three?
It’s worth a listen. Iverson is one of those players I’ve come to really enjoy listening to in his retirement.
