Dear Ronnie Price

You embody everything a Jazzman should be. Thanks for bringing your heart, energy, determination and toughness! I hope that you will be with us again next season.

Here's to your ability to lift the Jazz from a 20-point deficit in the fourth and rallying the boys to close the gap to 5. Thanks for taking on the establishment (that is Kobe and DFish)! That was the most entertaining sight of the series.

I can guarantee you... that you have every Jazz fan behind you. You've more than earned your keep. Infact, you've completely endeared yourself to all of Jazz nation. Please come back next season!

Until then,
Go Jazz!

Ronnie was truly spectacular last night. TOUGH AS NAILS! Unfortunately, I worry that most Jazz fans had gone to bed by the time he got in the game to cut the 22 point deficit to 5.

In fact, look at what Sloan said after the game:

"I was surprised that it took something like Ronnie Price's effort to bring us back to life," Jazz coach Jerry Sloan said. "I've never seen a guy play that hard in my life in that situation. It shows you probably the mistakes that I made."

It's true. Ronnie should have been our backup point guard this whole series (and regular season). What an effort.

Here's the real question: did anyone not know this all season long?

I didn't see Ronnie's performance last night, but I saw enough of Brevin and Ronnie this year to know which one should be getting the bulk of the minutes.

Jerry's rotations are at times mystical.

Ronnie's game is really worth reviewing on YouTube or TiVo if you've got it.

His energy was great and his athleticism was stunning. A nice tip in down the lane around the Laker bigs and a dunk over Fish that he missed but was fouled on and followed up with some trash talk right in his face.
