Comments from the other side - Jazz 3/28

Lots of KG hate from Jazz fans.  It's funny how different fan bases hate different players.  In Utah it's KG, in Chicago it's Rondo, in other places it's Pierce and in a few places it's even Ray Allen.  Glad at least one fan stuck up for KG, though.    For all their complaints about the refs and them not getting any calls,  they shot 3 more free throws than...
