Our famous “Duo” it seems had eyes in the back and side of their head. They always know where each were and when the pass was coming. It was automatic and yet still always on the money. Having a combination of Burke, Burks, Hayward, Exum on the court the defense will not know where and how the ball will be comming. It will be fun to watch..

His emergence last season, particularly as a stretch four, enabled his new contract with little to no discussion of how severely he has under-performed his draft position. I think he’s finally being considered and accepted for what he is. So in regard to that, I think you were prescient.

The storylines that top my must-watch list:

1) Enes Kanter, Ronin: How does he fit into a team based on passing, speed, reading the floor, and making decisions? If he doesn’t, what then?

2) The Guard Rotation: Who plays with whom and how much? Does Trey justify belief that he is a shooter? Does Alec Burks continue to improve, and if so, what does that mean for Burke and Exum? When we actually see enough of Dante Exum to get an idea what he can be, just what will that be?

3) The Jazz Star: I think the team is in trouble if they expect Exum to be their next star. Eventually, maybe. But he’s years away, and that would mean they’ve missed on all their slightly older prospects rising to that level. I think at least one does, possibly next season. Who will it be? Favors? Hayward, fueled by the max contract? Do Burke or Burks make a sudden jump under Snyder? What about the dark horse, Enes Kanter? I think one will end up in the discussion for most improved player and become this Jazz team’s first young star.

Corbin’s biggest flaws were being too soft (which made his system a poor defensive one) and moving lineups too often.
Maybe Snyder will be MR nice guy to the players because we are not dying hard to win every game, and when we are ready to win every game Snyder will turn meaner.

Give him the starter spot and never look back. Why save him for when you are twenty points behind??
I think the whole package of everything Laura has mentioned fits into a much better season.I see a fun season ahead. Rush, Beans, RJ, Lucas,Corbin all gone. Sounds good to me..

I guess the jazz fanbase really is that small.

I think they ought to give me the one million. I won’t ask for another thing ever. Honest I won’t..

Throw in the hurricanes, tornadoes, and downrite nasty blizzards and Utah is a lot better off. But then again I don’t see Harper near the Hall Of Fame..
