So you know that scene at the beginning of Friday Night Lights where the team is taking turns beating the crap out of Tim Riggins? They slam into him over and over again because he shows up to practice half-drunk. For some reason, watching the game tonight, that scene kept coming into my mind. Okay, let’s be fair. No one showed up half drunk (as far as we know.) But I really do want Paul Millsap to get free hits on every single player on the team at the next practice.
Two games in, there isn’t a lot to say regarding this team. So, all I am going to do is a quick rundown on what I’ve seen and what I’m hoping for.
1 – The Jazz’s unending streak of being lackluster on the road continues. It makes me feel almost good about the state of the world to know that the more players change the more they stay the same.
2 – The Williamses are great. It’s good to see Mo back and I like Marvin’s style.
3 – My favorite player? Ty Corbin’s glare. It was on display all over the court tonight.
4 – The three-point shot has finally come to Utah. It’s something that I like seeing because it means that we’ve evolved into a modern team. Better yet, when one of the guys goes up to shoot one, I’m not screaming “NO!!!!!!”
5 – Who is this new Enes Kanter? Whoever the Jazz kidnapped and replaced him with can definitely stay. Even if he’s an alien. Especially if he’s an alien. Maybe he’s a Martian.
6 – Al Jefferson needs to start coming off the bench. It’s time. I respect the veteran mindset, I really do. But Al needs to start coming off the bench if he’s not being traded.
7 – Defense, children. Defense. It’s not a difficult word. Defense.
8 – Gordon Hayward is all grown up. Now, he has to be the man we know he can be, put this team on his shoulders, and lead it.
9 – I’m okay waiting on Alec Burks. He needs more time, definitely, but it won’t kill him to be slowly worked into the rotation into a way that he can be the leader of that second group for a while.
10 – Paul Millsap.
