What to Expect in Utah

We are now 2 days away from media day and 3 days away from NBA training camp. My favorite time of year. We have survived the dog days of summer (that period where the closest thing to basketball is a pick up game in the park) but in a few short weeks now, 32 days to be exact the NBA regular season will be back. Time to give a few expectations and or hopes to what would make the Utah...

The Utah Jazz are well known to be in love with the idea of adding Jabari Parker, as he is a perfect fit for them as a go-to scorer, a franchise player and he would be a local hero.

Boards-N-Blocks: Kanter The Magnificent

It's weird enough that the basketball team that plays in Utah is called the Jazz. I've never been to Salt Lake City, but I'm preeetttyyy suuurrree that it's not crawling with disciples of Miles Davis and Thelonious Monk.
