Re: Jazz qualify for playoffs, get last spot in West
I agree with him. I think you get way more benefit from making the playoffs then missing and keeping a pick and using it on a player who might not even pan out to anything worthwhile. As he said, they've added 5 young guys in the past 2 years, who all look to have good to great careers ahead of them, so it's not an immediate need.
Some people wonder why certain teams can never seem to get out of the gutter and it's because they have losing cultures, which is propegated by stupid ideas like "let's miss the playoffs so we can keep the 14th pick". That's complete nonsense.
