I’m really excited for the next few years and what they could potentially bring to us as Utah Jazz fans. We have good, young talent, Big Al has been playing as well as ANYONE in the NBA as of late, a solid one time All-Star at point guard, early first round draft picks, and cap space (after AK’s crippling contract is dissolved).
Things have been ugly the last 2/3 of the season but we have seen small glimpses of our potential in the future. We might have the worst shooting guard in the league with Raja playing like he has. Even on the defensive end, I feel like he has struggled and in my opinion his play with CJ’s inconsistency has been one of the biggest problems for us on the court. After CJ erupted for 40 against Minnesota, it’s obvious that the kid has major talent and potential, because not everyone can drop that many points in a professional basketball game. He is only 23 and still maturing as a ball player so i feel like he will continue to become more and more dependable.
Obviously we can still make the playoffs which would be great after all the turmoil that we’ve dealt with all year, but either way we have some exciting things on the horizon as an organization. I know as fans of one of the most stable franchises in professional sports, we expect to win and don’t handle losing well, but let’s stay positive and be optimistic about what the future could hold!
