Around the Rim: Utah takes a deuce on Houston

1. Houston’s choking away a great season The Jazz got slapped in the face when they were forced to open their series against Houston on the road despite owning the fourth seed in the West. But it didn’t end up mattering because Utah stole both games in Clutch City to take a 2-0 lead back […]

Utah hates Ric Bucher more than the Rockets at the moment

Utah hates Ric Bucher more than the Rockets at the moment You might as well just call ’em butter because ESPN is on a roll. Not only are they calling out baseball players on their age, they are also calling out Mormons for being too happy. ESPN is apologizing for some anti-Mormon remarks directed at […]

Around the Rim: New Orleans slips up at home

1. Jazz grab division title Utah scored a pathetic nine points in the fourth quarter against New Orleans, but they literally could have gone scoreless and still left the bayou with a win.

Around the Rim: Utah’s Most Wanted

1. Naughty, naughty Nowitzki Dirk Nowitzki’s frustrations were evident just five minutes into the game.

The Jazz are committed to going strong in the lane, regardless of who’s in the way

You might think that NBA cheerleaders are just hot bodies gyrating in tight spandex outfits, but you’d be wrong. It takes a whole lot more than just a pretty face to make in the pros. These chicks are tough. Well, at least this Jazz cheerleader can take a wallop. Wow, the last time we saw […]

Stephon Marbury isn’t the only player that wants to ball overseas

We’ve known for some time now that Andrei Kirilenko has been unhappy in Utah. We’ve even heard about how his poor, Kobe-like mentality has him demanding a trade. So, we knew that things were bad, but we just didn’t really believe all the hype, until AK-47 said that he’d be willing to skip out on […]

Salt Lake City can finally joke again after getting pounded in the playoffs

So, there we were, thumbing through the online edition of The Salt Lake Tribune (a regular read of ours) when the headline “Jazz prospect is `very tall, and very Romanian’” caught our eyes. We were kind of taken back by the comment until we read the article and were pleasantly surprised that our Salt Lake […]

Mrs. Kirilenko says Andrei’s crappy play is due to a language barrier

Andrei Kirilenko got some heat earlier in the week for crying after practice because he wasn’t happy about his role during the Jazz’s opening game loss to the Rockets on Saturday.
