Utah Jazz

The Jazz have had their eyes on Mike Conley Jr. for a while now. After failing to come to an agreement before the trade deadline, the Grizzlies agreed to a deal that would send the veteran point guard to Salt Lake City. The best part…the Jazz didn’t have to give up Derrick Favors. We do a full break down of the trade. What have we gained? What did we lose? Why are some fans so upset about this?

Utah Jazz

Ricky Rubio has drawn a lot of criticism from fans this season and many would like to see the Jazz get an upgrade at point guard. Well they may get it. Ricky Rubio recently stated in an interview with a Spanish radio station that the team has informed him that he is not a top priority for them this offseason. There have been many different reactions to his comments but how much are we losing in translation?   Carlos Boozer is a former Jazz player who also received his fair share of criticism from fans. Despite that, Boozer was quick to defend Salt Lake City in a recent interview with Eric Woodyard from the Deseret News. Read the entire interview here.

2019 NBA Finals

The Raptors have reached the NBA Finals for the first time and are faced with the overwhelming task of de-throning the Warriors. We preview the series and make our picks.  

Magic Johnson / Los Angeles Lakers

ESPN asked Magic Johnson to be a guest on what was supposed to be a Finals preview show with Stephen A. Smith and Michael Wilbon. Instead he spent the opening of the show denying numerous allegations leveled at him by Lakers employees including that he verbally abused his subordinates and wasn’t dedicated to his job. What is most perplexing is that Smith and Wilbon asked no probing questions and instead enabled Magic’s bizarre behavior. Will he ever get out of his own way?  

Television

Fans are vocally upset about the ending to Game of Thrones. We discuss other disappointing finales to popular TV series. Have there been any that are collectively loved?

2019 NBA Playoffs

Have the Warriors actually improved since Kevin Durant’s injury? Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green are all playing better. On top of that they have won six in a row since without him. What does this mean for Durant’s future? Its doubtful Adam Silver and the NBA were very excited when both Milwaukee and Toronto advanced to the Eastern Conference Finals. But between a surprisingly tight series, a potential rivalry being made and Drake’s sideline antics this is shaping up to be an exciting series.  

Los Angeles Lakers

Public opinion was not kind to Magic Johnson after his sudden resignation as the Lakers’ president. And he didn’t help matters when he joined First Take to tell his side of the story. Instead of clearing his name, Magic wasted no time blaming Rob Pelinka and the Buss family for everything.    

BYU

Cougar legend Luke Staley made headlines last week when openly criticized BYU’s honor code office. Staley went so far as to say he would like his retired number to be removed from Lavell Edwards Stadium unless changes were made to how the honor code is enforced. BYU responded and changes were made but many feel like it is too little too late.

Utah Jazz / Jimmer Fredette

It has been nearly a decade since Jimmer Fredette played his final college game but Jimmer Mania is alive and well. Even though he plays for the Suns, Jazz fans gave Fredette an overwhelming welcome in Salt Lake City on Monday. Joe Ingles and Jae Crowder were annoyed that an opposing player got that kind of reception. Is it a bad look? Was it over the top?
