Monson: Jazz can check out any time they like, but they can never leave
NBA » D-Will and Dwight Howard talked of teaming up as far back as 2008; who’s to say it won’t happen again?

Even as the Jazz make their moves this offseason, and hope their young core continues to improve, fans have to worry whether the brightest parts of that core — Derrick Favors and Gordon Hayward — will make that improvement under the Jazz’s guidance and then, afterward, decide to jump ship.

Anybody stop to think, as Favors and Hayward were in Vegas playing for the Select Team as it prepared Team USA for London, with which future teammates they might be making plans?

We get it. Free agency is just.

Just awful for small-market fans, who are put upon the same short cycle as players, ever hoping the good ones stick around. The difference being, good players can bolt if they want. For good fans, it’s not so easy.

The Eagles’ Don Henley and Glenn Frey could have had them in mind when they wrote their famous lyrics: "You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave." Of course, in the same song they wrote: "This could be heaven or this could be hell."
