The Utah Jazz lost by 19 points to a previously bereft 1-4 Denver Nuggets team on Monday, dropping them to 0-8 and strengthening their claim to the title of The NBA's Worst Team through the first two weeks of the season. Yet another dispiriting loss — one that came after the Jazz had opened up a 10-point first quarter lead, then started coughing the ball up and failing to get anything going offensively, only to be blown out of the box by a 21-5 Nuggets run in the fourth quarter — had many Jazz fans down in the dumps ... including this little guy, who was inconsolable after the final buzzer.
"What could they do better?" "Uh ... wiiiiiiiiiiiiiin." Seems like a pretty smart adjustment to me. Watch your back, Tyrone Corbin — if the three of five Yahoo Sports NBA writers who picked you to be the first head coach fired this season are right, then I think I know where I'd be looking for your replacement. He's currently playing with trucks. No, not you, Lionel Hollins.
Still, it's a bummer that this little guy's so depressed by the state of the Jazz. Hmm. Hey, here is Jazz Bear riding a motorcycle. Does that help?
No? Hmm. Hey, here is John Stockton and Karl Malone hugging. Does that help?
No? Hmm. Hey, at least you're not Marvin Williams. Does that help?
Yeah, I thought it might. Hang in there, young buck. Just 74 more of these left. (Might want to invest in some tissues, Dad.)
