The Utah Jazz in Traffic Signs, Part 1
AK: No, it’s not what you’re thinking. It really should have been “5-Way,” but there was no such sign. So “4-Way” because AK can play 4 (but really all 5) positions, and because he fills up the box score with 4×4’s (but really closer to 5×5’s). The guy with the firearm/AK-47: self explanatory.
Boozer: A right and left arrow, because Boozer is probably the most ambidexterous player in the NBA. He is also injury-prone, so the two-headed arrow could also show the relationship between Boozer and the hospital. A win-win.
CJ and Phil: Self-explanatory, no? Phil has been raising CJ since he entered the league and always has a kind word for him. For more, click here (and scroll down to “The Grandfather” and “The Grandson”).
Kyle Korver: How women in Utah see him, i.e. hot. This is the man that BBJ believes caused a spike in the Utahn birth rate nine months from the day he arrived in Salt Lake City, because wives were suddenly feeling a whole lot more amorous.
Memo: This one is the biggest stretch. I couldn’t find a traffic sign about money, and my second choice would have been a good curves-related sign in honor of Yeliz (couldn’t find one of those either). So this one is for the slow speed with which Memo drives into the paint.
OMSW: [people are still asking what “OMSW” stands for. It’s “Oh my sweet Wesley”–a Princess Bride reference. Credit: Shums] According to our defensive grading system, OMSW is our best defender. He will stop you.
