    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?

    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.

    Now Jack draws Deron Williams? Yikes.

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

    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

    I hope to see some McBob tonight as it's the 2nd game of a BTB.

    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..

    I went with Stuckey, but Harris, Milsap, and Quis are all worthy.

    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!

    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.

    Thats it Hibbert. Way to start. This guy has improved so much since he first started playing

    Plumlee reminds me of a young Dale Davis. Good rebounding and he contests shots well on defense and his offensive game is very raw just like DD's was coming out of college.
