New Season, New Logo, Same Old Draft Pick

(Gordon Hayward practicing in Energy Solutions Arena prior to Butler's Sweet 16 game in this years NCAA tournament. Hayward led the Bulldogs to the championship game, where they fell to Duke.)

With the 9th pick in the 2010 NBA Draft, the Utah Jazz select Gordon Hayward.

There has been a lot of criticism of this pick. It was predictable. Not flashy one bit. The man fits into the system and most likely will produce. The Jazz have had a winning record in 26 of the last 27 seasons and its because of picking reliable players. But what I and the rest of Jazz fans know, is that Hayward probably will not bring us that illustrious NBA championship. I am not hating on this guy yet, I would have just liked to see the Jazz trade up in the draft in get somebody like Udoh or Monroe. We need one of those players to avoid another one those sweeps that we experienced against LA Lakers in the second round of this years playoffs.

On a side note, The 12th Green would like to point out that the newly reveled logo was just as predicted in this post. I love the music note! Not a huge fan of the color scheme on the mountain logo though (seen below).
