I am going to start talking about the other players in future blog posts. I realize that Blake Ahearn is just going to have to work hard to win any hearts. I have tried diligently to make a case for him. He DOES have a following from Missouri because we have seen him and know what others don’t.
I’m older (46 years old). I watched Irving, Johnson, Byrd, Stockton, Jordan, Bryant, and other greats…and I have been around to see their supporting casts…I have seen talent. I understand that Blake is NOT what people initially look at and say “wow”, but the wow factor comes later after you see him play significant minutes contributing to team victories.
I moved from Springfield MO after I graduated from Missouri State. I have seen this guy play much more than any of you. I want to become a Jazz fan since I live out west now in Denver (I can’t stand the Nuggets).
I am also ready to get excited about the rest of the team as much as I am about Ahearn….I am simply trying to make a push for this team to NOT turn away good talent just because SOME people don’t know what they have.
If you got a bar of gold bullion basically for free, would you trade it a mere gold ring??
OK that being said…..no more promoting Blake from my end. You will just have to acquire a taste for his game on your own. For your sake, I hope the front office also sees what you nay sayers don’t!!
