    What's Wrong with the Jazz

    The Jazz came into the season with high expectations of cruising into at least a seventh seed. They are 4-6 and currently struggling with the Wizards.

    3-0 Home
    1-6 on the Road (Only win came in triple over time against the Raptors)

    Thoughts?

    They have a fairly weak back court and an unimpressive level of ball movement.

    Really? Jazz aren't even that great, they have a nice frontcourt but there backcourt is meh. I think they are an 8 seed at best.

    Well, it looks as if their problem is that they can't win on the road!
    I no longer care about anything here except for the Entertainment Forum, which sucks; the Music forum, which sucks; and the Magic forum, which does NOT suck.

    Love y'all!

    ball stoppers, a meh guard/wing situation, and Al Jeff taking way too many minutes from Favors.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    Teams with no superstars are inevitably mediocre

    Most projected at highest the seventh seed. However, if you want a biased sample, most jazz fans were thinking fourth seed.

    Still, vastly under performing expectations.

    not true, but you need to be loaded with quality starters, even coming off the bench.

    I actually did think they'd be a 6-7ish seed. I still think they'll turn it around. That back court isn't as terrible as you make it out to be. They have good depth.

    It is true. Name a team in the last decade that has won with no superstar. Parker/Duncan/Ginobli, Kobe/Shaq/Pau, Lebron/Wade/Bosh, Pierce/Garnett/Allen,

    Al Jefferson isn't shooting enough 3s.

    04 Pistons is the closest example.

    Wait? People thought they would win it all?

    You said you're "inevitably mediocre" without a star. But now you're talking championships.

    You can be better than "mediocre" without a star.

    Was Denver mediocre last season? Did the Pistons have a star?

    You aren't mediocre if you don't win it all. There is an in-between.
