Have you ever wondered if having amnesia would be cool?
Just imagine: You wake up in a room and you have this thick bandage on your head and you’re like, “Who am I?” And suddenly this super hot lady walks in and you’re like “Who are you!?” and she’s like “I’m your wife!” and you’re all “SCORE! Wanna make out?” And she’d be like “No way, you have recently suffered major head trauma!” And you’d be like “That’s alright, baby.”
It would be like meeting her all over again. How cool would that be?
And then these cute little kids walk in, and they are all smart and cute and obviously testing way above their age in school, and you’d be like “Who are they?” and your hot wife would be like “Those are your kids!” and you would be like “SWEET!” and start high fiving doctors and stuff.
And then this nerdy looking guy with glasses and a laptop will come in the room and you’ll be like “Who is he?” and your super-intelligent child will be like “That is Oscar your accountant. He’s here to discuss your multi-million dollar investment portfolio.” And you’d be like “No WAY!!” and your super intelligent child who also is a bit of a joker will be like “Yeah, just kidding. His name is Detective Rosenrosen and he is investigating you for crashing a dune buggy full of stolen Yao Ming jerseys into the French Embassy. Which, not coincidentally, is how you suffered your brain damage. ” And you’d be all like, “Aw, Bummer.”
I mean, it could go something like that.
But the point is, recovering from amnesia would be cool in that it would give you the chance to get to know yourself all over again.
Just like in the highly probable example given above where you wake up and say “Who am I?” I find myself waking up this morning and asking myself “Who are the Jazz?”
Do we know who this team is yet? Do the Jazz have an identity that can be readily pointed out? So far, they are the team that comes back from double digit deficits. But is that really all that they are?
I’d like to see in the comments below who you think this team is. Because for me, I feel like the amnesia is just wearing off and it’s time to figure this out. A solid sense of identity will go a long way for this team in meeting it’s goals. Goals, that rightfully should be set high.
But first we have to ask. . . Who are the Jazz?
