Trey Burke Looks to Blossom in his Second Season With the Utah Jazz

Trey Burke quietly had a pretty productive rookie season. The point guard out of Columbus, Ohio made the 1st team All-Rookie team, and was the catalyst to a young Utah Jazz team. I will say that last season’s rookie class was forgettable, but I feel that Burke was one of few gems in that rookie class. Burke, who is going into his second season will look to blossom in his second...

How the Utah Jazz fared in NBARank

The #NBARank is a fun “one committee’s opinion” piece that starts a conversation. Sure, they’ll be wrong on some projections, overvaluing some and undervaluing others. They undervalued six or seven players on the Suns team last year, because who knew new coach Jeff Hornacek was going to lead almost all of them to career-best years? So now that’s I’ve got the emphasis...

Jazz build around young core and new coach

The Utah Jazz made sweeping changes to the team in the offseason and they started at the top.

Snyder, coming off a year as an assistant in Atlanta, has never been a head coach at the NBA level, although as head coach at...

Video: Alec Burks breaks Kobe Bryant's ankles

I’m not sure you can blame it on Kobe’s old age, but it was a hell of a move. Alec Burks crossed over Bryant with a beautiful behind-the-back move that left one of the leagues all time great defenders frozen in his tracks. h/t Danny Hazan

All Aboard The Utah Jazz Train

Breaking News: The Utah Jazz will NOT be making the playoffs. It’s true. You know it is. I would wager Greg Miller, Dennis Lindsey, and Quin Snyder know it’s true as well. In fact, I would say that is their plan. Sure they look good in the preseason, but they are not a playoff team. Go ahead and make those summer plans, you won’t need to change them. So should we still be...
