Who needs Deron?

The Jazz' forgotten rookie (the one we drafted), got his first two NBA starts this past week due to Deron's unfortunate absence. And they were auspicious debuts.

Against the 76ers, Maynor had 13 points, 11 assists, and only two turnovers. The following night against the Cavs, he had 24 points on 9-16 shooting, to go along with 4 assists. And most importantly, Maynor possesses that essential non-box score trait: Moxie. Needing a hoop late in the game against the Cavs, the young rookie took it upon himself to get us a huge bucket. In the end, Lebron took the game into his own hands, so Maynor will have to wait to have his first game as hero.

But I think we have a keeper.
