2012-2013 Utah Jazz Roster Breakdown, Part 1
* Apart from “No. of Players,” the rest of the table does not take Raja Bell into account.
** Kevin Murphy is the only player on the roster with no Playoff experience.
*** Per this site’s resident shoe expert, @Texas:
Think [Enes Kanter]’s still whoring his feet like last year. Doesn’t seem to be locked into a contract, I’ve seen him in Nike, Jordan and [Under Armour].
Those pink shoes Enes wore for breast cancer earlier this month were Under Armour.
Said this last year, but I can say it again: Two has got to be the fewest number of white guys ever carried by the Utah Jazz, right?
Random Fact #1: Derrick Favors is exactly five days older than Alec Burks.
Random Fact #2: Kevin Murphy may be a rookie, but he’s older than all four of the kids (Kanter, Favors, Burks, and Gordon Hayward). He’s got 17 days on Hayward, and two years on Kanter.
Random Fact #3: Marvin Williams and Murphy are the only players on the Jazz roster that were not unceremoniously swept out of the Playoffs by the Spurs last season.
Random Fact #4: Last year, Josh Howard and Raja Bell were the only players on the Jazz roster with more than 1,000 minutes of Playoff experience. The two of them combined for 53% of the Jazz’s total Playoff experience. This year, we have four players in the 1,000-minute club: Jamaal Tinsley, Paul Millsap, Marvin, and Mo Williams. The four of them account for 79% of the Jazz’s total Playoff experience.
