Kanter-JazzDancers

The holiday season is gaining on us quickly. The weather is starting to get cooler, Christmas lights and decorations flood retail stores, and Enes Kanter makes even the biggest of gingerbread houses look tiny.

Five Things To Watch: Utah Jazz

exum

Perhaps no team in the NBA has moved on from its past and looked toward its future more than the Utah Jazz. Virtually all of the ties to the great Jazz teams of the 1990s are gone. In their place are a rookie coach and a starting lineup that figures to have no one older than 24. The Jazz won’t be much better than last season, when they lost 57 games, their most since arriving in Salt Lake City from New Orleans

Andre Drummond

The NBA offseason continues to roll along, complete with Kevin Love trade talks seeming to have spiked to an all-time high.
