Summer Reading

Now that the season has ended, Kirilenko can finally focus on travelling the world, Sloan can get around to polishing his John Deere's, and Korver can devote 100% of his attention to his salvation. But the end of the Jazz season does not mean that TCG is taking a vacation. Far from it. Most of us consider the NBA offseason to be a season unto itself. So, to whet your appetite, a few highlights to expect this muggy season:

  • Insights from the Draft Guru - Kofoed11, aka the Draft Guru, has an uncanny knack for deciphering on which collegians and foreigners the Jazz have their set collective eyes. His predictions are gold-plated diamonds.

  • NBA free agency - Expect numerous articles about how the Jazz absolutely must sign Josh Childress, or Juan Dixon, or Sam Cassell, or Kenny "Sky" Walker.

  • The Rocky Mt. Revue - As the only TCG author currently living along the Wasatch Front, we expect numerous Revue reviews from Rising Stock. Actually, on second thought, don't hold your breath on this one.

  • The Future - The posts about what the Jazz need to do going forward have already begun. Look for everyone to encourage Larry H. to throw $$bling$$ at Deron. Look for everyone (except yours truly) to encourage the Jazz to lock up CJ Miles for a long time. An look for me to encourage Jason Hart to opt-out of his contract and test the current market for an undersized, poor shooting, turnover-prone backup point guard.

  • Trades - I love gossip. I especially love NBA gossip. And what I love most of all is inventing NBA gossip.

  • The NBA playoffs - As long as the Spurs are alive, you can expect 5-7 posts from Booner and Golden Griff about how evil the Spurs are and how they absolutely must lose if there is to be any beauty or reason left in this world.

  • Poetry - 00Tag writes hauntingly beautiful lyric poems about Greg Ostertag and Tyrone Corbin. Hopefully he'll share some of his work with us.

I'm for giving CJ one more year only because he's shown flashes of brilliance but hasn't had enough PT to really do much. Plus he's a nice, cheap piece to package with AK or, if he stays when AK goes, there's more time at the 2 and 3 spots for him.
