It’s happening. Jazz players have started to flock in to Salt Lake City from the various corners of the earth. On the eave of organized team activities, our beloved Jazz men and their familes were seen arriving back “home” in Utah. If that’s not enough to make your day, I don’t know what is.

After only 40mins of sleep per child on a 14 hour flight, layover and a 2nd flight, we made it home.— Renae Ingles (@RenaeIngles) September 4, 2018
Over 14 hours of wiggles and teletubbies. BRUTAL. @Joeingles7
It makes me so happy to see the Ingles’ call SLC home. It also makes me happy to see the BFFs Spida and Joe reunited!
Other Jazz players have been in Utah for a bit longer, and were seen enjoying some of Utah’s best places, including Lake Powell and The Cheesecake Factory.
It’s so good to see everyone coming back. The season is just around the corner.
I'm told today was Utah's first day of OTA's and open gym, so I guess the process has officially started— Tony Jones (@tribjazz) September 6, 2018
The Jazz began team activites and open gym workouts yesterday, and according to Tony Jones, everyone was there.
We haven’t seen much from any activities yet, but this is exciting news that everyone is back in town for team basketball.

The Jazz’s home court is going to look a little differently this season, with no blue paint in the key.
Three pieces of Jazz news for you all:— Andy Larsen (@andyblarsen) September 5, 2018
1) This is indeed the court that the Jazz will use this season for most of the games, with no paint in the key pic.twitter.com/ofDkzN8n0q
I can’t decide if I like it or not. It does look clean, simple, minimalistic, etc. But I also can’t decide if it just looks weird. Probably will be one of those things you forget about once they start playing on it. It is worth noting, however.
Yesterday a post on twitter sparked a good conversation on Twitter regarding the Jazz’s all-time starting five. CBS Sports tabbed their Jazz lineup with Stockton, Pistol Pete, Dantley, Malone, and Eaton.
This is a great lineup. Is it your all-time favorite lineup as well? I was born in the early 90’s, and was raised on Stockton and Malone. For me personally, guys that I have watched in my lifetime, I would have to have my lineup be Stockton, Mitchell (honestly), Kirilenko, Malone, and Gobert. COME AT MY LINEUP AND YOU WILL BE DESTROYED.
Here is a six minute video showing all 204 three-pointers made by international superstar Joe Ingles during last season. How many will Joe make this year? Can he break his own record?
