Dante Exum On Brandon Knight’s Shot: “We Knew He Was Going To Miss”

Brandon Knight

19 year-old Dante Exum clearly already knows how to work the media. After Brandon Knight misfired on a game-tying shot in the final seconds of the Milwaukee Bucks’ 101-99 loss to the Utah Jazz last night, the rookie boasted that his team allowed Knight a shot because they “knew he was going to miss it.” Read More »

Dime Q&A: Trevor Booker On The Young Jazz, Cousin Jordan Hill & His Crazy Shot

Trevor Booker

If you’ve heard J. Cole’s 2014 Forest Hills Drive album, you’re probably a hip-hop enthusiast. If you’ve heard of Trevor Booker you are probably a bit of basketball enthusiast as well. Why else would you be here if you weren’t? A comparison of Cole and Booker may be connected by faint dots on the surface, but there is a deeper connection that can be made if examined past initial externalities. Read More »

Video: Stephen Curry Hoodwinks Dante Exum

Elijah Millsap, Stephen Curry

Through three quarters, who translates into a little over 29 minutes, Stephen Curry dropped 27 points on 10-of-16 shooting (4-of-9 from deep) and 11 assists. He’s also got a couple snazzy plays where he’s toying with a decent Jazz team. The Dubs are on another level right now. Read More »

Rudy Gobert, Serge Ibaka

Not many shot-blockers could thwart an aggressive Serge Ibaka dunk attempt. Fortunately for the Utah Jazz, Rudy Gobert isn’t most shot-blockers. For the highlight of his seven blocks, watch the ascendant 7-2 Frenchman easily swat Ibaka’s soaring slam try during his team’s hard-fought loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Friday night.

The Trade That May Have Doomed The Nets

Deron Williams

I remember February 24, 2011 like it was yesterday. I was on vacation with my family when I received an ESPN update, telling me the Nets had traded Derrick Favors, Devin Harris, two first-round draft picks and cash to the Utah Jazz for Deron Williams. Williams was coming off back-to-back All-Star seasons and averaging a career high in points (21.3) and assists (9.7) that season. He was my favorite non-Net in the NBA. I couldn’t have been more excited.

Less than five years later, I can’t stand D-Will and can’t wait for Brooklyn to ship his overrated behind somewhere else. Read More »

Utah’s Quin Snyder Uses “Mute” Coaching Move And It Works

Quin Snyder

The Minnesota Timberwolves went on a 10-0 run to start the fourth quarter last night, extending their lead to 82-72 after it was tied up at the end of the third. Coach Quin Snyder called a timeout, except — rather than rail against his team’s lack of effort — he didn’t say a word to his players before they again took the court. The tactic worked. Read More »

GIF: Andrew Wiggins Leaves Atmosphere To Catch Lob

Rodney Hood, Andrew Wiggins

Poor Rodney Hood. The Jazz rookie caught himself jumping backwards to try and intercept a lob pass Mo Williams threw for Andrew Wiggins on the break. The high-flying No. 1 pick in the 2014 NBA Draft was too busy spacewalking to even notice his presence. Read More »

Video: Vince Carter Turns Back Clock For Vintage Facial Jam On Rudy Gobert

Rudy Gobert, Vince Carter

Rudy Gobert is 22. The Utah Jazz center was a mere six years-old when Vince Carter made his professional debut in 1998, dunking his way to immediate superstardom. 16 years later, Vinsanity is far more likely to come off a barrage of three-pointers than a soaring poster jam. But the 37 year-old can still get up when the occasion calls for it. To wit, this vintage facial jam over the 7-2 Frenchman that left his Memphis Grizzlies teammates and all of FexEx Forum in a frenzy. Read More »
