Utah Jazz Season in Review

Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports The Jazz’s season can really be summed up in one word. Unfortunately that word is not really appropriate for this site or any others for that matter.

Kanter, Burks eligible for extensions this summer

As always, Enes Kanter was borderline hilarious with the media on Thursday afternoon, cracking jokes, smiling and generally being comfortable in front of a crowd. But locker room clean-out day for the Jazz yielded a more serious side to Utah’s third-year center. He was clearly miffed at not receiving more playing time this season. He stated that the five younger guys on the roster...

Gordon Hayward only player in Jazz history other than "Pistol" Pete to average 16-5-5. Is he a viable option for Boston this off season?

Tonight Gordon Hayward of the Utah Jazz became the first player other than "Pistol" Pete Maravich to average at least 16 points, five assists and five rebounds for the organization in a season. Yes, these are rather pedestrian numbers to be considered historic, but anytime you're mentioned in the same breath as "The Pistol" it's noteworthy.Even better...

Utah Jazz Options for Head Coach

Fans have been using Ty as the scapegoat for all Jazz related issues.  All indications now show that Coach Corbin is headed out the door at the end of the season.  We are so used to a hall-of-fame coach that we have set close to unreachable standards, as far as a coach goes.  If Corbin is gone, the next coach will have to be someone that will be around for a long time and lead...

Why the Utah Jazz didn’t make the playoffs

They were not supposed to be fighting for a final playoff spot, they were not supposed to have winning streaks, and they were not supposed to hurt their draft positioning this summer. They were, however, supposed to display their emerging...
