During the team’s livestream of media-day interviews, Jazz analyst and former ABA star Ron Boone compared Bradley’s second-jump to that of Hall of Famer Moses Malone when he was a young player.

Booner is an idiot but that what would be great. He has shown to be a good offensive rebounder like Moses was

These numbers have been making the rounds for a while now, but his past performance sans Hayward gives hope to the concept that he’ll be able to do it. With Hayward off the floor, Hood averaged eight more points per 36 minutes than he did when the team’s former No. 1 joined him on the court.

His shootings numbers also saw an uptick to over 46 percent from the field and 41.5 percent from 3-point range.

Because he likes the ball in his hands. The ball will be in Rubio's hands though

Quote:
Quin Snyder told the media that Hood is looking forward to doing a lot of things on the court, mentioning a post-up game as one of those new skills.

Nice. He's got the game to play down there if his body can handle it

Quote:
If you count Raul Neto, the Jazz have 16 players inked to guaranteed deals against a 15-man regular season maximum. Joel Bolomboy and Royce O’Neale will likely battle for the final roster spot in camp. Neto’s deal will become guaranteed in January — it’s likely that he remains with the team for the year.

Why is it likely? I could see everyone but Rudy, Michell and maybe Bradley being gone by February

Dennis Lindsey said the team got “really lucky” with its acquisitions of Ricky Rubio, Thabo Sefolosha, Ekpe Udoh, Jerebko and others.

Did anyone else want them?

Snyder wouldn’t bite when asked about a starting lineup, although he said Gobert was an obvious starter. “It’s important to be open-minded about the competitive process,” he said.

Especially when you have so many bench players and few starters

Quote:
many felt that offensive players took too far the task to lean into their defender to try to get fouled for three free throws

Lets hope they get rid of that crap. It's awful. The defender stands there with his arms up and the offensive player throws his arms into him and it's a foul on the defender?

Quote:
Favors has said in the past that he prefers playing power forward over center, but on Monday he said he’d be willing to play any position.

“Whatever Coach needs me to play, basically,” he said. “If he needs me to play the 5, I’ll play the 5. If he needs me to be a point guard, I’ll be a point guard. Two guard, whatever he needs, I’m there.”

Good to hear. You're going to have to play some 5

Quote:
Exum noted that the new staff is already making an impact even though the season hasn’t even started. Most notably, he pointed to increased preparation before players hit the court. Before, they may have stretched for 15 minutes or so, but now they’re working for up to 45 minutes, doing such things as getting massages or strengthening their quads.

Hopefully it makes a difference

Snyder has also not had a point guard (or anyone) with the skill set, and more essentially the mindset to create transition opportunities. Rubio provides this ability in spades.

except he sucks in transition

Quote:
Those videos are great examples of plays that Hill would never have attempted to make. Hill was great at taking care of the ball, and it’s likely that Rubio will turn it over more than Hill did. There will also be many more “oohs” and “ahhhs” from Jazz faithful, and more importantly many more easy baskets at the rim.

Are we going to show the plays Rubio won't make like open shots?

Quote:
During the second half last year, the point guard shot the three ball much better, and that continued through to FIBA’s EuroBasket tournament this summer.

until they played the best teams anyway

Quote:
Many before the start of last season had Derrick Favors pegged as the Utah Jazz player that would be an All-Star and All-NBA player first before Gordon Hayward and Rudy Gobert. But Derrick’s knee had other plans.

Who thought that? Rudy has been there best player for almost 3 years now.

Quote:
With Derrick, Alec, Rodney and Dante healthy again, with all the new players--Rubio, Mitchell, Udoh, Sefolosha, Jerebko and Bradley--and with Rudy, Joe Johnson, Joe Ingles and Neto, the Jazz have 14 players who could deserve minutes on this team.

Right now I'd say 11 and Wolters can only play 1/3 of the year with the Jazz. The jury is still out on Exum, Mitchell, Bradley, Udoh, Royce and Griffin.

It should be noted he averaged four 3s a game with the Spanish Team making 36.3% of them. By the way, 36.3% would be a career high for Ricky if he shot that over a season.

Sucked in their final two games. Please stop with this crap!

Rubio was highly touted as a brilliant passer and potential NBA star when he was drafted into the league. However, unfortunately a combination of early injuries, playing with a young team and enduring a constant coaching carousel in Minnesota have prevented him from truly becoming that player.

lack of shooting!

Rodney said so far Alec Burks and Donovan Mitchell have stood out in OTAs. Jonas Jerebko with communication on defense.
3:14 PM - Sep 25, 2017

But Dante and Ricky will be a stars!

Quote:

Replying to @1280sports
Rudy: “From what I’ve seen from Donovan, he’s the definition of a hustler and unselfishness and defense.”

Good they need someone to bring energy. Booker and Johnson were missed last year especially with Neto mostly benched

Quote:
Alongside Donovan Mitchell, his likely backcourt running mate off the bench, Dante Exum, is going to be exhilarating to watch this season as well. Exum is in a contract year with plenty to prove and after a full offseason of work, Jazz fans expect him to make a major leap in 2017-18 and prove that he was worthy of a lottery pick back in 2014.

Hope maybe. I certainly don't expect it personally.

Quote:
it appears that Exum is holding himself to that exact same standard. He had plenty of good things to say about his game including expressing confidence in his improved shot and finishing ability.

Why is it Exum talking about his game and not his teammates?

Quote:
He’s a pass-first point guard that should be able to help further revolutionize the game of Rudy Gobert and Derrick Favors, among others.

Except there will be little room to work with because of the lack of spacing

Looks like a Jazz man or maybe Stars man in this case. Not long. Looks like he might actually be able to shoot though!
