If you are not one of the top 5 teams in the NBA at the trade deadline and you don’t make a trade, your not doing your job. If you don’t have a chance to make it deep into the playoffs and you’re not at least trying to change a few things up on the floor at the deadline, your not doing your job. It should be every owner, GM and, front office’s job to be putting together a team that can compete for a title. Now I understand that not every team can make a run every year. I understand that some teams spend more on their powerful trios than others spend on their whole team. But we have seen that argument go right out the window in recent years with billion-dollar teams fizzle out, and teams with strict budgets compete for the top spot.
The Jazz did absolutely nothing at the deadline. They had a few rumored deals but when it came down to it nothing was done and they are going to be limping into the playoffs with no real hope to get very far. Now some are saying that this is ok because in...

Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap missed Utah's game against Charlotte on Friday because of sprained left ankles.
Millsap is sidelined for a second straight game after he was hurt in the first quarter of Utah's 110-107 overtime loss to Boston on Monday. Jefferson was injured in a 102-91 loss to Atlanta on Wednesday.
Both players have just missed two games this season. Jefferson...

The Jazz and Raja Bell had a settlement in place that rested on the 36-year-old's ability to find a deal elsewhere to make up the difference in salary.

Life without Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap may not be so bad -- if the Utah Jazz play the Charlotte Bobcats every night. Jazz fans got another glimpse of the future Friday with a massive 23-point, 22-rebound double-double from Enes Kanter in the Jazz's 98-68 win. Those are career-high numbers.
Kanter started for the injured Al Jefferson (sprained ankle and spotted in a walking...
Raja Bell would only agree to a buyout with the Jazz had he found a deal with another team.
A sustained effort complete with focus and intensity could be what the Utah Jazz need to end their recent rough stretch.
Hosting the lowly Charlotte Bobcats might help.
The Jazz look to avoid a season-worst fourth consecutive loss with an eighth straight victory over the Bobcats on Friday night.
A 20-point second-half deficit was too much for Utah (31-27) to overcome in Wednesday...
