Tell The Tribune: Are the Jazz still Utah’s team?

The NBA team is the most followed in the state, but after a tough year, have fans dropped off?

(Trent Nelson | The Salt Lake Tribune) A limited number of fans watch the Utah Jazz host the Minnesota Timberwolves, NBA basketball at Vivint Smart Home Arena in Salt Lake City on Saturday, Dec. 26, 2020.

If there ever was a time to be a Utah Jazz fan, this may be it.

No NBA team has turned more heads this season. The Jazz have boasted the best record in the league most of the way and are considered legitimate contenders to win the franchise’s first NBA title. Three players were named All-Stars. Two more are leading the race for the league’s Sixth Man of the Year award.

The Jazz are historically the state’s most popular sports team. And yet, even as they approach a level perhaps not seen since John Stockton and Karl Malone graced the court, have they lost some traction among fans? Has the disruption of the pandemic and a year of social upheaval eroded their following?
