How About We Just Do Two More Weeks Of Wiggins Vs. Gobert

Enes Kanter Sounds Very Happy About Having Left Utah

Since joining the Thunder at the trade deadline, Enes Kanter has been very good offensively and on the glass. To hear Kanter tell it, the biggest reason he is playing so much better is because he was miserable in Salt Lake City. Via Daily Thunder: » 3/28/15 6:37pm Saturday 6:37pm

When Did Gordon Hayward Turn Into A Doe-Eyed Channing Tatum?

I will admit I don't watch the Utah Jazz, but I watched Gordon Hayward at Butler, when the small Indiana school had their tournament runs in March Madness. In my mind, Hayward still looked like the baby-faced Indiana stringbean he was in college. Wrong. Gordon Hayward's gorgeous now. » 3/04/15 4:40pm 3/04/15 4:40pm

The Thunder, Pistons, And Jazz Made A Good Trade

The Oklahoma City Thunder are glad they got rid of Reggie Jackson. Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook are glad; the coach and front office are glad; the fans are glad. By all accounts, by the time they finally traded him yesterday, in a three-way deal that landed him in Detroit, the discontented backup guard had… » 2/20/15 1:55pm 2/20/15 1:55pm

Gordon Hayward Locks Up LeBron, Nails Game Winner

Things aren't getting any better for LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Alec Burks Crosses Over Kobe Bryant, Likely Earns Kobe's Eternal Ire

Jazz guard Alec Burks achieved a neat little highlight for himself when he crossed over Kobe Bryant, and drove for the layup with the foul. At least Kobe's embarassing blooper in the twilight of his career was a little more graceful than Paul Pierce's. » 10/19/14 11:55pm 10/19/14 11:55pm

Do NBA Teams With Whiter Fan Bases Have Whiter Rosters?

In the NBA of yesterday, an owner could be explicit about structuring his roster around the race of the players. "No team should be all white and no team should be all black, either," Cavs owner and legendary boob Ted Stepien told a reporter in 1980. And why not? "Blacks don't buy many tickets," he went on, "and they… » 6/12/14 3:44pm 6/12/14 3:44pm

The Return Of Marvin Williams Was More Important Than We Thought

Remember Kobe's weird video announcing his comeback with his Lakers jersey writhing around set to epic music? (And how it went on for far too long?) A clever Utah Jazz fan created a similar production for Wednesday's return of future Hall of Famer Marvin Williams, who came back from a four-game absence due to a heel… » 12/12/13 7:30pm 12/12/13 7:30pm

J.J. Hickson Submits An Early Candidate For Dunk Of The Year

No one will blame you for not watching last night's Nuggets-Jazz game, as neither team has done much more than depress the hell out of their respective fan bases this year. But you are not allowed to go through life being unaware of this J.J. Hickson dunk, which turned poor Marvin Williams into a chalk outline. » 11/12/13 9:25am 11/12/13 9:25am

Karl Malone And Enes Kanter Caught A Tiny Fish

Enes Kanter went fishing with Karl Malone. Karl's wife posted this photo, captioned "His first fish." Fishing with Karl Malone is better than hunting with Karl Malone. » 8/07/13 4:29pm 8/07/13 4:29pm

A Young Karl Malone Once Fell For A Great Frank Layden Prank

The Salt Lake Tribune caught up with Karl Malone, who turns 50 tomorrow, a fact that ought to make any kid who followed basketball closely in the '80s and '90s feel really old. Malone tells the newspaper the story of his first visit to Utah in 1985, a little more than a month after the Jazz drafted him No. 13 overall… » 7/23/13 7:26pm 7/23/13 7:26pm

Jeremy Evans Was Still Beyond The Arc When This Oop Was Alleyed

Jeremy Evans got into the Jazz's 112-102 win over Portland for all of three minutes, but he made it count.

Marc Gasol Loses Shoe, Is Reunited With Shoe, Commits Foul With Shoe
