Painful season in store for Utah

07:11 AM ET 08.20 | After an outstanding season at Michigan, Trey Burke came with a big name. The euphoria Jazz fans felt when the team acquired [Burke] in the NBA Draft could soon be waning. I'm not saying it wasn't a nice move. I'm just sayin'. This isn't going to be an easy recovery. ... The Jazz didn't have a lot of options. They knew where they were going with the Jefferson-Millsap approach -- mid-to-low end of the conference. Better to roll the dice. It's going to be painful and with what they have now, it won't be smooth. They're at least two All-Stars away from being serious, maybe more. In fact, Mehmet Okur, Andrei Kirilenko and Devin Harris were All-Stars and even played on the same Jazz teams. They didn't go far. Neither will this team, as it stands.

Utah without a lilywhite PG? It just doesn't seem right.

Sloan needs to coach again to put them back in the playoffs....

I change my mind. Even w/ Sloan, this roster is not enough to make the playoffs...

Whoa Devin Harris was an All-Star?

The thread seems a bit misleading. Were they expecting Burke to lead them to the playoffs?? He's a point guard for chrissakes. Who's he going to pass to?

^Olskool's next step after repeating the same quote four times was to fax over his comment.^

Now that's sunny weather. Sometimes you have to destroy to recreate. I spent a better of my twenties watching Knicks suck like Gloria is at it... good luck salt lake. If you need some sugar call 1 8 0 0 - LOTTERY!
