I’m sorry fellow Jazz fans, but I was shocked by the majority reaction to booing Deron in his return to Utah. Did you really think the whole Deron Williams situation through?
It is unfortunate that he wouldn’t commit to the Jazz any longer. It’s also unfortunate that he may or may not have had something to due with Sloans sudden retirement. I understand these feelings. However, I believe that the harsh reaction to Derons return was a reaction of the heart, not the head.
How quickly we forget, that it’s because of Derons dedication to this franchise for many years, and his hard work during that time, that we were able to get so much in TRADE VALUE for him!
How do so many not understand that it’s because of his hard work (and a great front office) that we are in the situation we are in NOW!
I don’t want any opponent to feel comfortable in our building, but BOOING DERON dureing his introduction and EVERY TIME HE TOUCHED THE BALL!!??? WOW…..Come on Jazz fans, don’t think with your heart, use your head.
Where is the respect and gratitude for a player that had a huge impact on the future of this franchise because of his hard work and dedication when he wore our jersey?
On behalf of Jazz fans, I would like to offer Deron an apology, and thank him for the hard work and time he put in while he was here.
Although he wouldn’t commit long term, he gave his all and made himself an asset to this team, and this league, leaving the Jazz an asset in trade to make our franchise better in the long run. With or without him.
Thank you for reading,
