There’s always the good and bad about Bleacher Report. I’ve noticed that their posts can be kinda biased towards certain teams or really, brutally honest, or even sometimes totally out in the boonies in their analysis and claims. However, their latest article, “A New Year’s Resolution for Every NBA Team for 2013,” is spot on when it comes to the Utah Jazz. Here’s what they have to say:
“The Utah Jazz have a bevy of young players who need to see more minutes, so it makes sense that the team should resolve to spend more time with the kids in 2013.
“Derrick Favors, Enes Kanter and Alec Burks are all more intriguing (and cheaper) than many of their older counterparts, and with the uncertainty surrounding impending free agents Paul Millsap and Al Jefferson, Utah should be trying to get as long of a look at its youth as possible.
“Maybe the Jazz are concerned with sneaking into the playoffs, and that’s why Favors, Kanter and Burks aren’t seeing as much time on the floor as they should, but it doesn’t make sense to gun for the eighth playoff spot when your young players could eventually propel you to someplace among the top four.
“Youth must be served in Utah.”
I couldn’t have said it better myself… It’s interesting how every analyst outside of the Utah Jazz organization is aware of our problem and calls us out on it, yet Locke, Corbin, etc., insist that their way will get us to where we want to go… Sorry Front Office, not buying it…
