Everybody please stop commenting about how great we were when we had D-Will, Boozer, Matthews, Korver etc. We weren’t that good! We were never that good! There were so many flaws on those teams of past years, and it seems like most Jazz fans have forgotten about that.
We constantly got man-handled by the Lakers, and the year we made it to the WCF was a fluke. People forget that we faced the mediocre Warriors who were only in the Semifinals because they had the perfect team to defeat Dallas that year. I guarantee that if we would have faced Dallas in the semis, we would have won maximum 1 game. I’ve never considered going to the WCF in 2007 as a great achievement, and you shouldn’t either. We were just at the right place at the right time.
Everybody always whined that the team needed change. “We need to blow up the team, Boozer’s Defense, Korver’s Defense, Brewer’s shot, Deron’s attitude blah blah blah blah”. Lets face the facts Jazz Fans. We were never a real contender and a The team we had this season, and the teams of the past 4 years or so, were never championship teams. We were at least 2 more pieces away from being legit.
KOC did what was best for the team. He is one of the most respected GM’s in the NBA for a reason. Remember, this trade wasn’t done to win a championship THIS YEAR. This team was going nowhere and everybody knew it.
Good Job KOC! Go Jazz!
*On a side note, can we stop calling ourselves “Jazz Nation”? The whole “Nation” thing is way overused with sports teams.
