Normally I try to provide statistical analysis of current or former Jazz players on my posts. This is something that I would like to continue to do since I think it provides value to any statistically minded readers that come across the site. Today is different. Today is Black Friday. In honor of that I thought I would provide a top 10 gift ideas for any Jazz fan on your shopping list.
1. Paul Millsap – white Revolution Swingman jersey – $80 – the top spot on the list goes to the perfect gift. The new jersey looks spectacular and Millsap has been the best player on this year’s team.
2. Jazz green warm up jacket – $85 – I love the way this jacket looks, but it probably isn’t for the the shy Jazz fans since it definitely sticks out. Something that is a little bit more understated and cheaper, but still pretty great is the Jazz 3 stripe track jacket.
3. John Stockton retro purple jersey – $80 – This is a must have for any Jazz fans who read my John Stockton – MVP? post and agreed with all of the points. There is much more I could (and have wrote) about Stockton and $80 is very reasonable price compared to the cost of the ultimate $250 Stockton retro jersey on Mitchell and Ness.com. (By the way if I ever become rich I will buy copious amounts of Mitchell and Ness jerseys.)
4. Karl Malone retro green jersey – $80 – I love the green jerseys. In fact the top gift on my list would be a green Al Jefferson Jazz jersey if I could find it anywhere. In its place I will put this jersey of the Mailman. However, if any of the loyal readers of this blog know where I could find a green Jefferson jersey just let me know in the comments section.
5. Jazz reversible knit hat. $20 – I’m not much a hat guy, but this hat is pretty sweet. However, the whole reversible thing confuses me. I have some reversible shorts and a long time ago I decided that I liked one side more than the other. Did I ever wear those shorts with the other side? No. Why would I? It isn’t like when I was picking up shorts I was looking for something to match my entire outfit. Maybe the reversible products have more of a market with people who are a little more concerned about options and color coordinating.
6. Jazz pendant – $42 – please give this to your girlfriend or wife just for the reaction. And if by chance the reaction is positive then consider me impressed with your choice in mate.
7. Jazz revolution shorts - $60 – Jerseys, pendants or other choices are really just luxury items that you might not wear often since wearing something like a jersey in public isn’t socially acceptable. Shorts on the other hand are something I find wearing many times over. I wear then when I go play basketball and I also like to wear them while lounging around the house. That is why out of all these gifts this would probably be the most useful one.
8. Jazz women’s tshirt – $32 – I showed this to my wife and her first response was on that the model didn’t look the typical model. Her midsection specifically made me at least wonder a little bit if it was a gift idea for your favorite pregnant Jazz fan. Anyway that aside my wife did say she liked the shirt and would enjoy that as a Christmas present, so that is good enough for me.
9. Nba Jam – $50 – This isn’t Jazz specific and I haven’t played it yet, but I am excited for the new installment of one of my favorite Sega games of all time. I don’t know if it will translate to the new gaming systems, but I’m optimistic. If you own a Wii it is supposed to be only $27 at Target and only $29 at Wal-Mart.
10. Jazz green tshirt – $24 – A pretty basic shirt, but again I like basic and also like the green logo.
That completes my first and probably only blog post that revolves around shopping as the subject. I don’t claim to be an expert and my style is probably different than yours. However, hopefully this list will provide some value to some readers who might need a Christmas list to give to their family.
