Utah Jazz: Rodney Hood will be NBA must-see TV in 2017-18

Utah Jazz wing Rodney Hood will be under the microscope this season in his new role as Quin Snyder’s go-to scoring option. Without a doubt, the 2017-18 NBA season will be one of discovery for the Utah Jazz. No longer will the team be able to rely on the offensive talents of Gordon Hayward and […] Utah Jazz: Rodney Hood will be NBA must-see TV in 2017-18 - The J-Notes - The J-Notes - A Utah Jazz Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

The Downbeat: The Worth of Rodney Hood

Wait and see, or sign him to an extension? It’s your Tuesday Downbeat, where we talk some Rodney Hood, Rudy Gobert, Boris Diaw, and more. Also, the NBA season countdown is now down to 28 days! It’s no secret that Rodney Hood will be a restricted free agent next summer. What is still a secret, or unclear at least, is how much the silky smooth lefty will earn. Various websites have ranked the upcoming class of 2018, and Rodney consistently comes in around 20. CBS Sports has him at 19th. Coming off a subpar season, he's primed to break out because he has the talent to be a...

[Audio] SLC Punks Podcast: Nike Reveals the NBA Statement Jerseys, Rudy Gobert is top 15 and Donovan Mitchell and Dante Exum are legit.

[Audio] SLC Punks Podcast: Nike Reveals the NBA Statement Jerseys, Rudy Gobert is top 15 and Donovan Mitchell and Dante Exum are legit.

Which Nike NBA statement jerseys are winners and which ones fell short? On this episode of SLC Punks we talk about the Utah Jazz Statement gold uniforms revealed at the Nike reveal. Which teams had winning designs and who didn’t. Rodney Hood was the representative for the Utah Jazz. But did the Dallas Mavericks really send JJ Barea? And who even knows who the Boston Celtics sent. Shane Larkin? Sports Illustrated ranked Rudy Gobert at #15 (above Gordon Hayward.) Is that correct? And is this is Rudy’s team? Donovan Mitchell is receiving a lot of hype and he deserves it, but should we be...

Utah Jazz and Nike Officially Debut Statement Gold Jerseys

Utah Jazz and Nike Officially Debut Statement Gold Jerseys

The gold alternates really look better in real life. Call us converted. The gold jerseys actually do look better in person. The Utah Jazz debuted their new “Statement” jerseys today that are unapologetically gold—as Jony Ive would say. Take a look at the above video of Donovan Mitchell and Rodney Hood showing them off. Are we maybe swayed because Donovan Mitchell is wearing them? PROBABLY. But the jerseys look good. The textures on the jersey actually do allow the green and blue to stand out a lot better. Are they better than Utah’s soccer jersey last year? No. But are they as bad...

Ranking the 2017-2018 Utah Jazz Roster: Tony Bradley debuts at 13th

Ranking the 2017-2018 Utah Jazz Roster: Tony Bradley debuts at 13th

The man the San Antonio Spurs coveted at the draft gets ranked at 13th. The Utah Jazz traded up in this year’s NBA draft to bring in UNC product Tony Bradley. Matching his number for the upcoming season, Bradley was ranked the 13th most valuable player on the Jazz roster. He ran away with the voting, grabbing 195 out of 319 votes. This one came at a bit of a surprise to me, especially considering recent Jazz draft history. With the 23rd and 27th picks, Dennis Lindsey was able to find an All-NBA center in Rudy Gobert and solid contributor (hopefully great starter) in Rodney Hood. The value...
