What’s the buzz on Twitter?

For those disappointed Mark Jackson may be on his way to SAC rather than LA, there’s a reason he hasn’t coached since 2014 and it’s not because he’s picky. Same kind of deal with Westbrook being on 4 teams in 4 yrs (likely soon to be 5 in 5 yrs). Not a hot commodity. – 4:57 PM

Obviously, I’m no longer close to the situation. But the Jazz looked like a team with a fractured locker room. It hasn’t happened often in Utah but the chaos at the end the 2002-03 season, when Mark Jackson led an anti-Sloan/Stockton/Malone faction, looked a lot like this. – 2:48 AM
