Congrats to the Mavs- No link necessary you should know where to find information on the NBA Champion. I am happy for Dirk, Kidd, and pissed off that Deshaun Stevenson has more rings that Stockton and Malone....combined.
NBADraft.bet has us getting Kyrie Irving- do they know something we don't know. The answer is probably yes, they do know something we don't know. However, I don't think this happens.
Good article by Jason Flemming (@jfleminghoops) about the Jazz finding their identity before the draft.
Sunday Syncopation via @slcdunk by @allthatamar I like that he points out that they Jazz close out on some players and not others. It is frustrating to watch the game and know who the three point shooters are. I know that they (the Jazz players) do as well, and they still don't close out on the one/two players that can rip us from deep.
Slcdunk gives a breakdown of what all of the Jazz players are doing this summer.
Since 1988 only four NBA Final's series have gone seven 10', 05', 88', 84'. So if you were a gambler you would have picked this series in six.
EuroCamp link who is playing and the schedule. More on this from NBA.com
Suck it Jalen Rose... you just got moted by @Monilogue.
David Aldridge has Fredette and Walker moving up. Mock Draft
I don't mind moving to six if we get the guy that we want (a guard) from what it sounds like.
Utah Jazz | Brandon Knight | G | Kentucky
A pick made with much trepidation. The whole civilized world has Utah going for a guard here, and the Jazz, supposedly, is in love with Knight. I am not sure of this for three reasons: 1) Utah has no idea what it's going to do yet. The Jazz has four major workouts with Draft prospects between now and the 23rd, including Wednesday's guard matchup with Kemba Walker and Jimmer Fredette, which Knight -- at least for now -- is not going to attend; 2) Kevin O'Connor, the Jazz GM, wouldn't tell anybody what he's really thinking at this point even if he's made up his mind, and 3) I know how much O'Connor values size and toughness, and it's hard to see him passing up all of the quality bigs that are available. It also wouldn't surprise if Utah moves back if it really wants a guard; perhaps to six, where it could still take Knight or Walker and get an extra first-round pick out of the deal (Washington would package 6 and 18 to move up).
