January 29th, 2009 by Jay

Are the Utah Jazz headed for a lottery pick?

Isiah Thomas cant even stand himself!

Hopefully not!  At least not this year… Though this season has been disappointing (an understatement!), I’m optimistic the Jazz can eventually get healthy and make a push for at least a playoff spot.  They are however, due the New York Knicks first-round pick most likely next year.  I’ll explain how we got it, and what the complicated protection clauses are.

So first of all, here is how the Jazz ended up with this first-round Knicks pick: Read the rest of this entry »

Rocky Mtn. Revue Pictures

August 7th, 2008 by Jay

One of the days Ben and I were at the Rocky Mountain Revue, I took a couple photos.  We were just kickin’ back in the nose-bleed seats, so they’re not that great.  The photographer for NBA Photos was sitting next to us, but I don’t have a $20,000 camera like she did, haha.  Mine fits in my pocket for convenient carrying.

Utah Jazz Player Salaries

June 21st, 2008 by Jay

The Jazz Junkies has “borrowed” the numbers provided by Hoops Hype to compile this spreadsheet detailing the Utah Jazz current and future contract situations.  You can view which players are under contract and for how long, and approximately what each player is set to earn for the remainder of their contract.  Be sure to click the picture though, because it is just a screenshot of the whole spreadsheet, which includes totals, a key, and more years.

Corbin & Hornacek May Leave Jazz

June 6th, 2008 by Jay

Jeff Hornacek, part-time coach for the Utah Jazz had been rumored to be the leading candidate for the Assistant Coach position in Chicago as Doug Collins’ right-hand man.  However, word today is that Collins will NOT be returning for a second coaching position with the Bulls, so it remains to be seen if Hornacek will still end up with a greater opportunity elsewhere, or stay put.

Jazz assistant, and also a former player for the Jazz, Tyrone Corbin has interviewed with Steve Kerr to be in consideration for the Phoenix Suns head coaching position.  However, it sounds like he is not the front-runner at this time.

If neither former Jazz-man gets an opportunity, it will be somewhat too bad – I’d love for them to continue to progress in their careers, but at the same time, it would be nice to keep them here.  I’m not all that familiar with what Corbin brings to the Jazz, but I know that Hornacek can work wonders with players’ jump-shots.

What event would you prefer?
