Trivia Question: In addition to the distinction of coaching for one team longer than anyone in NBA history (this season will be his 20th full season with the Jazz), Coach Jerry Sloan is the only coach with 1,000 wins with one team. When did he accomplish this milestone and against which team?
Answer: Sloan reached 1,000 wins as coach of the Jazz this season on November 7, 2008 after Utah beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 104-97 in a Friday night game.

I voted for Daniels but it was a strictly homer vote, because I don't really know who else has improved. I know in his column today, Sam Smith picked Millsap.

Dr. Hibbert
01-12-2009, 07:10 PM
Now Jack draws Deron Williams? Yikes.

Would be nice to see Troy n' Dun have good games. Obviously they were a bit rattled @GS.

01-12-2009, 07:26 PM
A win tonight would bold well, as it would make us 2-3 for the road trip, which isn't bad giving the strength of our opponents. Would've expected a Golden St. win instead of Phoenix, but a win is a win.

I just wish we could be healthy, Graham has been decent, as has Diener, but if we could get TJ and Quis into the fold with Dun Dun, I think we have a pretty solid team. I mean, we at least look solid on paper, and our depth would be nice at all positions

I still wish we had an athletic/definsive big, I like Hibbert and his progress, but he's still a ways away. I just wish we had a an athletic shot blocker that could run the floor. When quis comes back I wouldn't mind playing Danny at th 4 at times, with Dun at the 3 and Quis at the 2.

Or even give McRoberts a little more burn

Justin Tyme
01-12-2009, 09:10 PM
I hope to see some McBob tonight as it's the 2nd game of a BTB.

GO!!!!!
01-12-2009, 09:27 PM
I was torn between Stucks and Millsap

I really like Millsap, it will allow Booza to take his dreams of being paid way to much elsewhere...

Go Pacers, mind you i woulden't be upset if AK47 had a triple double tonight, aslong as won..

Shade
01-12-2009, 09:35 PM
I went with Stuckey, but Harris, Milsap, and Quis are all worthy.

Dr. Hibbert
01-12-2009, 09:40 PM
So I know you all would like to see McBob get some legitimate (not :23) PT...will he?

I completely agree that he should. I was a critic of his chances of sticking on the roster, but the guy makes things happen every time he comes off the bench. You gotta have guys like that on your team, and you gotta get them on the court!

Roaming Gnome
01-12-2009, 10:06 PM
Hopefully we don't suck like a Sham-Wow tonight.

MyFavMartin
01-12-2009, 10:09 PM
Went with Harris.

The rest of the guys' improvements were due to a significant increase in playing time (~150%), whereas Harris' PT went from 30 with Dallas last year to 33 last year with NJ and now 36, while his scoring went up dramatically (14-15 pts to 23). I think is stellar playing is making Dallas look bad in the trade (instant trade analysis isn't always accurate).

I also like going with a guy not in his first 3 years, when improvement is expected. So that left Daniels, who'd be my 2nd place vote, and Harris.

I hate how rookie calls actually exist.

I didn't see them, but were they lame calls mostly or legit?

I think another one of Hibbert's problems is that he gets tired too fast. Hes always fatigued out there.

tfarks
01-12-2009, 10:22 PM
Could someone please show me some quantitative evidence of "rookie calls." Because it appears to me that there is a lot of cognitive bias. The guy is actually fouling people, its not because he's a rookie.

BlueNGold

Only 2 legit fouls....but it's still too many. He will have to shore that aspect of his game up...and that will take better conditioning and more experience.

Diener and Jeff can be real head-scratchers out there...

Kemo
01-12-2009, 10:35 PM
ya, the difference is... There's no excuse for Jeff's bad play .. lol

at least Diener is working himself out of an injury + the rust from riding the pine so long.. I can excuse Diener's inconsistant play...

Diener has had his good moments out there though.. I think once he gets back 100% he will be just fine .. if not real good for us off the bench for a good 10-12 minutes

I told you guys that JOB was saying to Stacy that they only need to play %5 better defense:rolleyes:

I figured out our defensive philosophy once I heard that. We simply are supposed to trade baskets for 95% of the game thereby creating a tight game with lots of scoring, then in the final 5% of the game we're supposed to play some defense and quit trading baskets and secure the win. So we just need to improve that final 5% of the game on defense and we're NBA championship contenders.
