Off-Season Odds and Ends

September 24, 2014

One. The Lehi Mascot Bowl took place on Sept. 22. Jerry Sloan was there.

Asked jokingly about there being rumors that he would be coaching the game, Jerry said, “I’m through coaching…I don’t wanna coach football. That ball won’t even bounce right.” Classic Jerry :)

Oh and by the way…I never knew the Jazz Bear had his own assistant:

Two. Fuel for the insecure Jazz fan with an inferiority complex:

Three. Derrick Favors, asked if he’s talked to Quin Snyder yet and what kind of guy he is (H/T @My_Lo):

“He’s cool. I talk to him every other day almost. We sat down and had a conversation about the upcoming season and how I should play.” (Hoop)

For an article published on nba.com–Hoop is the official magazine of the NBA–it’s surprising how many typos there were in the post (including Quin Snyder’s name being spelled wrong).

I mention this because of the following #UDQM, when Favors was asked about the Jazz’s young guard trio of Trey Burke, Dante Exum and Alec Burks:

“All three of them are going to be really good. Dante just played for Australia in FIBA and should be on his back.”

Four. Watch this. Big Al truly does what he does better than anyone (H/T @OhioHadley):

 

Five. Five days until Media Day! Have you told your boss you’re taking a vacation day yet?

I just cannot wait to see Rudy Gobert doing this in a Jazz uniform.
