Tweet of the Day went to former NBA player and current Utah Jazz analyst Matt Harpring, who wasn’t thrilled to see his team shut out from being televised on TNT for the upcoming season.
It is a bit of a surprising omission, given the fact that the Jazz surprisingly made the playoffs in the ultra-competitive Western Conference last season, edging out the Houston Rockets by two games. Although they were overwhelmed by a more experienced Spurs team in the first round, it was a huge step in the right direction for a team that was supposed to go into rebuilding mode.
During the offseason, the team acquired point guard Mo Williams
to pair with Devin Harris and moved Devin Harris, who struggled in his short stint with the team. With the continued improvement of Gordon Hayward and the resurgence of Al Jefferson, it will be interesting to see if the Jazz can build on their effort from last season to make the playoffs again for the upcoming season.
