Monson: Four on the floor — time for the Jazz to be pros

Utah needs better shooting, point guard play and team unity.

< Previous Page

Better for the players to give whatever they’ve got in whatever minutes they get, to run the floor, set hard screens, make crisp passes, move the ball to where it needs to go, and flat-out play hard.

4. A pro’s approach.

Sure, No. 4 is the same as No. 3, but it can’t be stressed enough. Quit pouting and start playing. When you go 9-4 to start the season, don’t beat your chest. When you drop seven of your last 10, don’t look like somebody drove an F-150 over your puppy. Just play — and work like grown men. Do that, and you might win more than three out of 12 road games along the way.

GORDON MONSON hosts "The Gordon Monson Show" weekdays from 2-6 p.m. on 97.5 FM/1280 AM The Zone.
