While Gordon Hayward was the Utah Jazz’s leading scorer and lone All-Star last season, one could make a strong case that Utah was already Rudy Gobert’s team. The 7-foot-1 center was the heart and soul of the squad, as well as a strong leader who held his teammates accountable. Last year, he emerged as one of the league’s best big men and earned a spot on the All-NBA Second Team. He also finished second in Defensive Player of the Year voting and made the All-Defensive First Team after Utah allowed the fewest points per game (96.8) of any team last season. Gobert’s numbers show how...

Utah Jazz: Was Tanner Ainge’s congressional campaign sunk by the Gordon Hayward Effect?

Tanner Ainge’s congressional run may have fallen prey to embattled Utah Jazz fans and the Gordon Hayward effect. In the end, not even offering shots at his father (and Boston Celtics general manager) could help Tanner Ainge.

The Return: Gordon Hayward returns to Utah on March 28th

The Butler product won’t be back in Utah until the end of the season. Utah Jazz fans will have a long time to stew before Gordon Hayward makes his return to Utah. Almost a full year after Hayward’s last game in Utah, he will make his return on March 28th, 2018. The game will be televised on ESPN. One has to wonder at this point in the season if Gordon Hayward will even suit up against his former team. This game takes place in the 24th week of the season. With only 7 games left in the year, the Boston Celtics might be resting some of their players in anticipation of the playoffs. Boston...

[Audio] The SLC Punks Podcast: The NBA needs to get rid of conferences!

Uneven conferences in the NBA have made things tough for the Utah Jazz Being the middle of August, it’s time for us to talk about the one thing we know needs to change to improve the NBA, Conferences! On this episode of SLC Punks we discuss what consequences the lopsided Easter and Western NBA conferences have had on the Utah Jazz and, if Adam Silver wanted to change that, what would it take. We discuss whether Gordon Hayward would have stayed if there were no conferences and what things will be like for him in Boston with a much tougher media.

Projections for the 2017-18 edition of the Utah Jazz have largely been less than favorable following Gordon Hayward’s departure. Thanks to a wild offseason, the Western Conference is more difficult than ever before. The Oklahoma City Thunder, Denver Nuggets and Minnesota Timberwolves each made big leaps by acquiring Paul George, Paul Millsap and Jimmy Butler respectively. Meanwhile, Chris […] Utah Jazz projected as Northwest Division’s worst team by HoopsHype - The J-Notes - The J-Notes - A Utah Jazz Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More
