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?

WATCH: Blake Griffin and Trevor Booker get into scrum

Blake Griffin has become a major target of hard fouls over the years, and it makes perfect sense, being that his calling card is posterizing his opponents. One of the biggest knocks on Blake has been his inability to defend himself from taking rough fouls. He’s been called out by guys like Zach Randolph and DeMarcus Cousins in the past, but perhaps it’s time Blake lays down the...
