Alright my fellow Jazzoholics this upcoming season should tell us a lot about our beloved Utah Jazz players and staff. What type of adjustments do you think that the Jazz will make with their offense and defense this season? I hope that we can start to see better rotations defensively and a more thorough understanding of our FLEX offense. It seemed as if we had far too many possessions that ended up with a forced contested three at the end of the shot clock or just dumping it down to Big Al for the Wheezy. I’m really hoping to see better execution out of our team (this should obviously come with a full season and training camp). From a basic offensive standpoint it would be refreshing to see the pick and roll or pick and pop game progress with Kanter and Favors, they both have the ability to knock down the 15 footer.
From an individual standpoint I’ve listed a couple of things that we need to start to see from a few of our most promising players (and things that are realistic)
1. G-Time…consistency-specifically with his J. It’s time Gordon starts to show he’s one of if not THE man on the team…
2. Burks…He too needs to start knocking down his jump shots but it would also be nice to see him get others involved a little more
3. Favors…be the beast that he can be…no disappearing for quarters at a time and staying out of foul trouble is a must. There’s no reason Favors shouldn’t average nearly 15 and 10
4. Kanter-Learn the damn plays and understand your defensive rotations.
5. Milsap-BE THE LEADER OF THE TEAM-it’s ridiculous that this team didn’t have a captain last year. Note to Paul Milsap: Thank you for being the hard-working, blue collar player that defines who the Utah Jazz are…( I wish you were taller my man)
6. Big Al…Keep working on passing the ball out of the post, the Jazz, and you for that matter are much more dangerous if we move the ball as a team…NO BALL STOPPERS
What from a technical offensive and defensive standpoint would you all like to see
