NBA Podcast: What's going on in LA right now, how will the Utah Jazz meet expectations?

Amar on the Phil Naessens Show -- two segments

Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

Another hour long show of sports talk (for free!), a general NBA segment and a Utah Jazz segment as well. Check it out!

Segment 1 (0:00 - 15:38)

Segment 2 (38:50 - 55:00)

  • Podcast #ProTip question 2 -- Sometimes it's okay to delete things
  • Utah Jazz talk! !!!! !!! 111 !!
  • What is an acceptable 2014-15 win / loss record for the Jazz
  • Poorly explaining that standard deviation thing of rookie coach win expectations
  • What matters more is the direction of the franchise, not so much the actual quality of the rookie head coach
  • Jason Kidd 's situation isn't the same as Quin Snyder 's.
  • Dante Exum is the point guard of the future? Is Trey Burke the back up? Will this ever be resolved in the off-season? Probably not.
  • The Phoenix Suns were amazing, but that type of jump is reasonable, and yes, Jeff Hornacek was a rookie head coach
  • When do we get to see Derrick Favors go out there and bust people up? (Enes Kanter too!)
  • How does Gordon Hayward play after getting paid?
  • Hopefully like Bruce Lee, and react to the defense . . . that whole "Be like Water" thing? Maybe?
  • Alec Burks is a legit MIP candidate

Thanks again Phil for having me on as a guest and for answering my questions. And really, this is the only national / international show that wants to talk about the Jazz every week. I appreciate being able to do that.
