Q Carolyn from Bountiful says "I think the Jazz got a raw deal in the lottery, picking sixth. What do you think?"
A Yep. Stastistically, the Jazz had the smallest chance of picking seventh, which was one percent.
So, if you throw that number out, Utah had horrible luck, notching the absolute worst pick they could have gotten.
And if you listen to Kevin O'Conner and other draft experts, this year's draft isn't particularly deep. In fact, O'Conner went so far as to say that there's only three or four impact players.
So, with the Jazz picking sixth, don't expect them to get anyone who will come in immediately and change the landscape of the NBA.
Perhaps Utah could package a player or two and a few of their five draft picks and move up a couple spots, but I just don't see that happening.
Q Joseph from Bountiful says "I didn't see much prep coverage in your paper last Thursday. How come?"
A Joseph, the prep season ended a couple weeks ago, and that's why there wasn't much coverage.
I have a question for you, however. I would imagine the cave that you live in is perfect in the summertime because it stays dark and cool. But what about winter? Isn't it cold in there?
Q Paul from Woods Cross asks "who would you take, Lebron James or Dwyane Wade?"
A Lebron, Lebron, Lebron. Wade is a popular player right now, because of the success the Miami Heat are having in the playoffs.
There's no question that he's been a huge part of that, and that he's already a superstar in just his second year in the league.
But examine both James' and Wade's stats, and Lebron has him beaten in almost every category.
But it's more than that. I believe James is destined to be the "superstar of superstars," much like Michael Jordan was in his day.
I'm not saying James will be as good as Jordan --that's nearly impossible. But there's nothing he doesn't excel at.
He's unstoppable offensively, plays great defense, is a solid rebounder and passer, and is lightning quick for his size.
Wade has plenty of upside as well-and will dominate for year to come-but James will always be a level higher.
