“I’M TAKING MY GAME TO DAYTONA BEACH”
Jason Michael Crannell
Hello fellow Jazz fans.
Well…here I am in Florida…Port Orange to be exact (about 10 minutes south of Daytona Beach). I had a home in Utah, and here in Florida I have a glorified trailer. But, it’s worth it to be closer to my seven year old grandson (and other family). And, I’m only a few minutes from the beautiful beach. I will be posting stories, and photos on my Facebook page about all my adventures in Florida as the days, weeks, and months go by, so feel free to become a friend, and share in my journey.
I did pay up the nose to get the most expensive premier package on Directv, in order to watch all the Jazz games on Root Sports this coming season. Hopefully, there won’t be any hitches.
A few quick thoughts on the Jazz.
Alec Burks is not a point guard…he doesn’t have the right mentality for it. His natural position is shooting guard, and that’s where he should see the bulk of his time.
I also believe that Marvin Williams will be the real deal at small forward for many years in Utah (unless the Jazz lose him in free agency when his deal is up).
Gordon Hayward will swing between the shooting guard (his best position), and small forward. Just like the Jazz are going to need to make a decision between Paul and Al in the near future, a decision will also need to be made concerning Gordon and Alec. I think at some point, both guys will demand a starting position, and neither will be very happy to settle for bench duty. One or the other will need to be traded (along with Big Al?) in order to bring in a top notch point guard for the future. It would create a better balance for the team. Mo Williams is capable of holding down the fort for a season or two, but he isn’t the long term answer the team needs in order to become a championship contender.
If you had to choose between Burks or Hayward, moving forward, which would you take?
Possible future starters:
Enes Kanter – center
Derrick Favors – power forward
Marvin Williams – small forward
Gordon Hayward/Alec Burks – shooting guard
??? – point guard
