Alec Burks Hits Kobe Bryant With the Crossover

After taking a three point shot to the grill courtesy of Kobe Bryant. Utah Jazz guard Alec Burks burns up the court, hits Bryant with a deadly crossover that completely fools the nine time all-nba first team defense player and then proceeds to drive through the rest of the Lakers defense for the tough and-one layup. It’s not often Kobe gets burnt this bad, but when it happens its...

Video: Alec Burks breaks Kobe Bryant's ankles

I’m not sure you can blame it on Kobe’s old age, but it was a hell of a move. Alec Burks crossed over Bryant with a beautiful behind-the-back move that left one of the leagues all time great defenders frozen in his tracks. h/t Danny Hazan

For Enes Kanter, the time is now

No excuses. If there’s a theme for Jazz forward Enes Kanter heading into the regular season, that’s it. This is shaping up as Kanter’s make-or-break year in Utah, and he knows it. It’s his chance to prove to coach Quin Snyder, general manager Dennis Lindsey and the rest of the Utah Jazz brass that he’s capable of being a key piece of the franchise and a part of the future...

Blake Griffin and Trevor Booker have a little squirmish during Clippers vs. Jazz

Clippers star Blake Griffin had a reputation around the league as being soft, and all dunks no real offense. That was before Doc Rivers came on board as the head coach. Griffin has not only improved his outside shooting, he’s also developed some toughness. That edge was on display Friday night at Staples Center as the clips faced off against the Utah Jazz. During the third...

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...

Blake Griffin, Trevor Booker tangle after flagrant foul (VIDEO)

Utah Jazz forward Trevor Booker fouled Los Angeles Clippers Blake Griffin a little too hard under the net during the third quarter of Friday's preseason game. Griffin did not appreciate it, and the two exchanged words. Then things got a bit out of hand — or more like hands-on.The fact that it was only an exhibition game probably didn't warrant Booker giving Griffin the...

Jazz Fans Have a Lot to Be Excited About

           The Jazz ended the 2013-2014 season 25-57, which was not a surprise knowing the Jazz were going through a rebuilding year. The hopes of the Jazz landing either Jabari Parker or Andrew Wiggins were crushed when the Jazz landed at number 5 in the NBA Draft. Fortune was with the Jazz on June 26th though, the Jazz were able to draft both Danté Exum and Rodney Hood...

All Aboard The Utah Jazz Train

Breaking News: The Utah Jazz will NOT be making the playoffs. It’s true. You know it is. I would wager Greg Miller, Dennis Lindsey, and Quin Snyder know it’s true as well. In fact, I would say that is their plan. Sure they look good in the preseason, but they are not a playoff team. Go ahead and make those summer plans, you won’t need to change them. So should we still be...

Will young guards Dante Exum and Trey Burke work cohesively this season?  Last season, Utah had very minimal expectations to meet. How will the Jazz fare this year under first-year head coach Quin Snyder?
