Gordon Hayward’s sponsor Purple Mattress had a controversy about white powder and boy is it wild.

Gordon Hayward’s sponsor Purple Mattress had a controversy about white powder and boy is it wild.

In the tradition of great Jazz players with terrible sponsorships, you will not be disappointed. If you were like me, you very much enjoyed the Utah Jazz’s playoff run. Who doesn’t like 7 game series that go to the last game? And who doesn’t like sending the Clippers packing in the postseason? Not a single soul. But one of my most enjoyable parts of the postseason was the aggressive marketing campaign of one Gordon Hayward’s most unlikely corporate sponsors, Purple Mattress. If you were anywhere near social media it was impossible to escape their advertisement that featured Gordon...

Dunk’d: What we feel is missing from Vivint Smart Home Arena’s renovation plans

Our staff shares their wishlist of arena improvements and additions. Vivint Smart Home Arena announced a better look at the renovations undertaking the building and its grounds.

Quick Reaction: Utah Jazz rumored to be after Milos Teodosic

Quick Reaction: Utah Jazz rumored to be after Milos Teodosic

SLC Dunk gives their quick reaction to the rumor. The Utah Jazz are in the rumor mill early this NBA offseason. They are rumored to be chasing Milos Teodosic of CSKA Moscow. Our staff has their quick reactions to the rumor. Milos Teodosic averaged 16.1 points, 6.8 assists, 2.1 rebounds, and 0.6 steals a game in only 27 minutes per game during his 2016-2017 season in the Euroleague. Austin Oldham I wouldn't hate this. I would be very intrigued by Teodosic. He's a very skilled and fairly big point guard at 6'5''. I like the connection with he and Quin having been together at CSKA Moscow. I...

If Gordon Hayward leaves Utah then what?

If Gordon Hayward leaves Utah then what?

It’s your move, Dennis Lindsey ... The Utah Jazz are facing an offseason that has the potential to define the franchise for half a decade. Utah’s biggest star, Gordon Hayward, is a free agent with many teams vying for his services. Gordon Hayward will deserve every red carpet, presentation, banner, and present that he’s given during his free agency tour. He has worked hard to become an All-Star and one of the league’s premier Small Forwards. While many expect Hayward to re-sign with Utah what happens if he doesn’t? The last time Hayward hit free agency, Utah won out by technical...

Dennis Lindsey on George Hill: “You're not going to get one poor thought, much less word, if he goes elsewhere.”

Dennis Lindsey on George Hill: “You're not going to get one poor thought, much less word, if he goes elsewhere.”

Will the 31 year old point guard be returning to Utah next season? It has seemed like a foregone conclusion that the Utah Jazz would re-sign George Hill once the offseason arrived. His presence at point guard elevated the Utah Jazz’s play and when he was healthy, the Utah Jazz were a force to be reckoned with. But unfortunately George Hill played in only 49 games in the regular season. The Utah Jazz traded their #12 pick last year to have George Hill’s services and the Utah Jazz tried hard during the season to try to extend George Hill’s contract during the season, but Hill and the...

Rudy Gobert named as finalist for Defensive Player of the Year and Most Improved

Rudy Gobert named as finalist for Defensive Player of the Year and Most Improved

Rudy Gobert is a finalist for two different regular season awards. Rudy Gobert has been named a finalist for the Defensive Player of the Year award and the Most Improved Player award. For the first time the NBA is naming finalists for their regular season awards that they will be presenting at an end of the year ceremony hosted by Drake. Rudy Gobert had been in the discussion for Most Improved Player and Defensive Player last year, but ultimately name recognition, the Greek Freak, and Kawhi Leonard limited his chances. This year he faces the same competition for those same awards....

Golden State Warriors 121 - Utah Jazz 95: Game 4 Recap

Golden State Warriors 121 - Utah Jazz 95: Game 4 Recap

Yeah, I’m finally ready to talk about it. On Monday night the Utah Jazz laced them up for a “do or die” game against the Golden State Warriors. The Dubs had rolled to the second round by sweeping the Portland Trail Blazers 4-0, and had their eyes set on doing the same to our guys. Up 3-0 they knew what they had to do in order to close out a desperate team on their own home court. After all, they just did that four games ago. Utah hadn’t faced a close out game before until Game 7 - on the road. And frankly? This Jazz team seems to play better on the road. I don’t know what that...
