The 2006-07 Utah Jazz: Who are these guys?
(And why you need to know them)
By Andrew Pearson
Posted Nov 30 2006 12:10PM



OK, so admit it. You were fooled too. When the season started, you had your usual list of suspects for teams that were going to be a factor in the Western Conference this season. Everyone’s top three consisted of Dallas, San Antonio and Phoenix, and many figured last spring’s playoff teams would only improve. Throw in a healthy Yao and Tracy McGrady, and the return of Don Nelson to Golden State, and both the Rockets and Warriors even nudged themselves into the postseason conversation. But the Utah Jazz? No matter what argument you would present, there was little evidence aside from a 9-4 streak to close out last season to believe that such a substantial turnaround was coming.

Yet with nearly five weeks of the season in the rear view mirror, the Jazz find themselves sitting atop the Northwest Division with a 13-3 record after a franchise record 12-1 start, their best since the 1996-97 season when they ultimately lost to the Michael Jordan-led Bulls in the NBA Finals. The Jazz have been one of the biggest surprises of the league thus far, and they’ve done it with a roster that goes virtually unrecognized. So who are these guys?

You know who I like but didn't mention before? The player who has been there a while and always plays hard.

And I would never want to get in a fight with.

Matt Harpring
What a stud.

nice young team, cap flexability, great coach... two things would bother me about 'em. a) can ak47 ever stay healthy? b) who's the go to guy down the stretch? it might be boozer, but he has to prove it for an entire season first.

win the title this year? stranger things have happened, but i wouldn't count on it. but certainly a team to watch in the (near) future

on a related note, the hawks looked quite dumb for passing on chris paul last year... they're looking twice as dumb now that deron williams is playing well, too.

Well, I guess there's an exception to every rule...

And what the hell is a team from Utah calling themselves "Jazz" for?!? I know they're from New Orleans originally, but were they so lazy they couldn't think up a new name? Yeesh.

What I really want to know is if there really is a Super Sonic in Seattle.
