Well i'm from New York and i became a Jazz fan simply because this team is just dominating at home. Plus the new Stockton/Malone impresses me and i give them 1 more year until they will be the most dominating combo in the nba. Also i love D-Williams' game, he is so underrated in my opinion. I also respect Jerry Sloan a lot. If only the Knicks franchise would be half as good as the Jazz franchise....
I live in South Jordan Yoa, Suburb of SLC for all of you. I've been following them since the day Sam Batistone brought them to Utah on day one.
I was lucky enought that my dad bought awesome tickets for cheap back them and he still has the rights to them. (worth tons now!) When they moved to the Delta Center from the Salt Palace we went from about the 6 row to about the 15th. Moved around the western US a bit but have always been a avid Jazz fan, and I am happy to be back in the Salt Lake valley again to get all the good local info.
you guys have a long history, if Utah didn't make it to the WCF last year i probably wouldn't bother, i was mad when they eliminated houston because they were my team, but when you lose something, you gain something new
