7-0 is good, its exciting. doesn’t mean much, but it does mean that “our 3rd string can beat your 3rd string”. Obviously the anticipation for the regular season is through the roof. What i can only hope this preseason is that we lose to the Kings. Why? The preseason is all about growth, and i think a team grows more through a loss than being undefeated in the the preseason. We also have a very competative first 3 games, if we start out 3-0 i will be happily surprised. So if we go into the regular season 8-0, and our first loss happens when it matters, it will hurt a little more. Any sports fan likes to see his team on a winning streak, but it has to end. especially in the NBA. so i would prefer our team learn to lose as a team in the preseason….when a loss doesn’t matter. but our players can go into the locker room and discuss a loss. see how this team reacts to a loss. especially a loss to the Kings, a team that i think we all can agree won’t be much bother this season. I personally took the Lakers games a little more personal, although win or lose to the Lakers, it would not matter much. but it was a grudge match. they swept us last year, as a fan it would have been a major bummer to end our streak to the Lakers….any team but the Lakers. but our Jazz didn’t let us down. So i hope we have an off night at home, the last chance to have an off night that doesn’t matter. then kill it in the regular season.
**side note: i don’t think there is much of a chance that we lose to the Kings at home.
