And Mark Jackson continues to be intolerable on commentary. "Imma call him Klay. Imma call him Klay." Yeah, because that's his name. What are you talking about?

That was so weirdly annoying. It's like he just desperately needs to throw in AAVE sayings into the broadcast for no fucking reason. "Mama named him Klay, I'm gonna call him Klay". He doesn't have a fucking nickname. No one is calling him anything other than Klay. He doesn't go by "K Daddy" or "K-Popz" or anything other than "Klay".
TVman is dead. I killed him and took his posts.

Thanks, Warriors. It got a little dicey with some of those second half Celtics runs. Ultimately, the Celtics couldn't overcome giving up a 21-0 run in the first half though.

Curry finally getting his Finals MVP.

No Game 6 Klay was disappointing. He does not deserve to go by "K Daddy".

Imagine spending thousands of dollars on tickets and watching the home team fall behind 22 points. Yikes.

Boston just couldn't keep up. And those turnovers are deadly against the Warriors.

Let's go back a week and look at the confidence....



I assume there was no Draymond Green Show last night, since they were likely out celebrating in Boston. Glad they wrapped in 6, because I would've hated to see a Game 7 where things didn't go our way.

You see how we had to outplay the calls by the refs early on with 2 flops called in a row. Same as last game where the whistles were blown far more early on against the Dubs than for the dubs. I think we took our first Free throws late in the 2nd Qtr. and 2-3 of our players already had 2+ fouls each.

But good win. Good effort from the Celts. They need a bigger rotation next time around. Tatum was not only gassed, but likely nursing a bad shoulder all series. Brown was clearly their FMVP in that losing effort.

Glad Steph not only FINALLY got his FMVP, but won it decidedly.
Him not winning it was questionable in 2015-2016 (Iggy) and again in 2018-2019 (Durant)

It was also good to see Iggy get to step on the court to finish out the game as one of the 4 for all 4 rings. And LOL at Steph breaking down and crying on the court before the game was even over. Keep it together man. I know it's one of if not the biggest moment of your Career so far, so no one holding anything against you, but bro could barely talk and eyes were all watery and bloodshot.

Let's see if we can run it back one more time and get a 2nd B2B since it looks like we going deeper into the Luxury Tax to keep as many as we can, starting with Wiggins and GP2

So, the Jazz decided to finally unveil their new uniforms for next season and...yeah, they're mostly awful. They were also mostly leaked months ago, and we thought they looked too terrible to be real:



Yep...just take it all in. Our new team colors are white, black, and yellow. How generic. But at least we have the 90s throwback jersey that is the best design the Jazz ever had during its best run of basketball.

It seems that Jazz management has heard our utter disdain, because alongside these new jerseys they also declared "PURPLE IS BACK!" and announced these 2 jerseys for the season AFTER next:



Gotta say, I'll always be partial to the 90s throwback design, but I'm still digging that all-purple redesign. I've argued for years that the Jazz really should make the Mountains their official icon (instead of the generic music note). It's Utah. The mountains MEAN something to Utah, far more than the music note does.

Just saw this damning article criticizing the new jerseys as the embodiment of what this team is right now, too.

I don't know about the decidedly part. There wasn't a player you could say was consistently better than him on the Warriors, but I think the series as a whole was one on the backs of the support players. The second half +/- favors Wiggins for those last three games, and I would say Wiggins only won it for the team in one of those instances.

Edit: Those yellow and black Jazz jerseys are hideous. The white one at least has the right design cues.

It was decidedly.

Wiggins only out-performed Curry during game 4 win, but Curry was still providing that gravity that gets everyone else looks, regardless of him actually scoring points or not.
Curry also had a crazy stats tho, and even good defensive performance.
Something like 134 points in 143 minutes played. Shooting splits of something like 48/38/89

No team had a better player on the floor than Curry, and Wiggins was 2 steps down in considerations for that FMVP trophy. But if they gave a DPOF Award, Wiggins would've gotten that for sure.

and Yes, those Black and Yellow Jazz jerseys look like somethin you make in the "Create A Jersey" mode with extremely limited free assets.

But also wanted to add that I was kinda sad I missed that Warriors Parade on Monday. I was out of town, so couldn't make it. Dubs seem like they were getting real loose out there.

Well, it's Draft Day and we're still stuck with Gobert, so unless they announce a trade on live TV, I guess we're stuck with him for a while.

In light of the awful new jerseys, thought I'd post these fan jersey designs I saw on Twitter. These particular designs did something I really like, and I wish the team would officially do it too: incorporate the mountain into the music note design, merging the 2 icons the Jazz have used over the years. I don't know if you'd ever see it from a distance, but it finally makes the note click for me in a way it never has.

Those are soooo much better than the official one.

Whoever got paid to design those practice jerseys should be ashamed, fired, and replaced by whomever did these fan designs. LOL

Speaking of the practice jerseys, the same fan also made the black jersey much better with the simple addition of the mountain.

Small change. BIG difference.

someone submit it before it's too late for them to change their minds.
