So with this lockout they got going on, I am getting really antsy to see me some basketball. Anyway, I have been reading what media types and scouts think the Jazz young players could turn out to be. Here is what I have found:
Enes Kanter: Best Case is Tim Duncan, with Kevin Love being mentioned. Worst Case is Rafael Araujo, and we all know how that ended. . .
Derrick Favors: Best Case I have found is a mix between Amare and Dwight. A likely case I have come across a few times is Antonio McDyess in his prime. Any of those would be awesome if you ask me.
Alec Burks: Best Case is Brandon Roy, second best is Eddie Jones, and worst case is Marquis Daniels. I think a player like Eddie Jones would be spectacular, and would easily be the best shooting guard the Jazz have ever had. A Brandon Roy type (pre knee discombobulation) would be epic . . .
I could not find any for Hayward, but I think he will be something similar to Hornacek, with a little more athleticism and defense, maybe even Clyde the Glide good??? Who knows.
Just imagine a team 5 years from now with Tim Duncan, Antonio Mcdyess, Brandon Roy, and Clyde Drexler all in their primes . . . . we can only dream that the young Jazz players all live up to their potential. If they do, we would win 5 or 6 championships in a row. But the likely case is that they will be somewhat less than their ceiling as players, and we will be a perennial contender, with a hope of a title one day. Such is the life of a Jazz fan.
