Jazz Notes

Some loose ends from the end of the NBA summer:
  • Gilbert Arenas needs surgery on his knee (for the third time), but claims that he will be back on the court in December. I have my doubts. But there is no doubt that he'll miss the Jazz' only trip to the famed Verizon Center on November 11 where I will be clad in my jazz throwbacks and rooting vociferously for less playing time for Matt Harpring.

  • The DNews is reporting that Gerry McNamara will be among the invitees at Jazz camp. The former Syracuse star and national champion must be sick of Greek food, because he has zero chance of making the squad.

  • Apparently, Boozer can opt out next season. Is anyone else sick of hearing about this? And the season hasn't even begun.

  • Boozer and Deron were on Oprah earlier this month. (This is the first, but definitely not the last time that this blog will link to Oprah claims that the main goal of the US team was changing "the way the world perceived men in basketball." Consider it changed!! Way to go O!

I'll be honest -- I think Oprah could have been more effective on the court during the Olympics than Boozer was.
