How the Utah Jazz fared in NBARank

The #NBARank is a fun “one committee’s opinion” piece that starts a conversation. Sure, they’ll be wrong on some projections, overvaluing some and undervaluing others. They undervalued six or seven players on the Suns team last year, because who knew new coach Jeff Hornacek was going to lead almost all of them to career-best years?

Rudy Gobert Our Center of the Future?

One thing you should know about me: I’m a francophile.  (No that’s not what you think… don’t go there!)  Simply put a francophile is someone who is shall we say enamored with anything and everything French, the language, the food, the culture, etc.  It’s not limited to France because there are many French speaking countries but for me it is especially true when France...

Is there a correlation to Contesting the Rim and Wingspan?

In today’s NBA, when drafting or looking to sign a big man, rim protection is one of the key factors looked at by team executives. If a player has freakish measureables, too, then many teams will be even more intrigued. That’s why I decided to look and see if there is truly a correlation between elite rim protection to wingspan.

Three Days In The Desert: Notes From NBA Summer League

God bless the folks at NBA TV.

NBA Draft Prospect: Noah Vonleh – Indiana

Noah Vonleh Noah Vonleh has launched himself into that second tier of big men in this year’s draft thanks to his physicality and potential. His hand width is about the largest ever measured at the combine, a half-inch wider than Kawhi Leonard.  His 37” max vert is decent for a player his size (better than Julius Randle). His 12’1” max vert reach puts him ahead of Joakim...

The Frustration of Being a Utah Jazz Fan

  The frustration comes from being a fan of a team that actually has integrity. At this point in the season and with only 10 games remaining it’s quite obvious that the playoffs are gone (that has been apparent for weeks) yet unlike Philadelphia who mailed in the season at the trade deadline the Jazz continue to fight and claw trying to win games. That’s why I love the jazz...
