This Day in Utah Jazz History May 16, 2000
Utah’s Jef Hornacek walked off the court for the final time after the Jazz are eliminated from the postseason by the Portland Trail Blazers. Hornacek, who entered the league as a point guard and ended up one of the game’s best pure shooters, concluded his career after 1,077 career games. He averaged 14.5 points and 4.9 assists per game, with shooting percentages of 49.6% from the field, 40.3% from three-point range and 87.7% from the free throw line.
Who the Hell is Josh Selby? That’s not the real title, but you know Jody wanted it to be.
I wouldn’t expect anything less from Jody. Tongue and cheek at its best. The great thing about this article is that Jody is calling out the random media member that voted for Josh Shelby. Calling out people for being idiots is ok in my book. Thank you Jody.

N.O. is added to the Goran Dragic sweepstakes. The Counter Point
So Far we have POR, DAL, NYK, UTA, ORL and now NO that have shown or been hinting at wanting a piece of the Dragon. He played well this season, but with this many teams on his junk his payday is going to be 6-8 million, and possibly even more.
“But it goes beyond his individual statistics; Dragic also raises his team’s level of play. When Dragic is on the court, the team’s true shooting percentage jumps up a full 3%. This is the result of him getting the ball to the rest of the team in their favorite spots. This is also why his assist percentage jumped over 7% to 34.6% as a starter.”
From ESPN Florida
Goran Dragic, Houston Rockets – Dragic is a bit of an enigma because he hasn’t played a lot in his career. However, during spot time in Phoenix and Kyle Lowry‘s injury last season, Dragic showed flashes of brilliance. The 25-year old wound up starting 28 games this season, finishing with a career-high 11.7 points and 5.3 assists per game while shooting 46.2% from the field and 33.7% from beyond the arc. With Lowry back in the fold, Dragic could be looking for a starting gig.
Mark Eaton still working with youth and doing good everywhere. I respect Mark Eaton for what he has created off the court more than anything he did on the court. As someone who works with young adults everyday, I think there is an enormous value to good examples. Mark Eaton is being a good example. He continues to do good in the Salt Lake area by giving back. I would imagine that he learned some of these qualaties and attitudes from the late Larry Miller, who gave everything back.
