Jazz Player Power Rankings (Week of 3/25)

Power rankings have always been something that I’ve enjoyed looking at and it gives me an idea how others view all the teams.  The thought I had was to do it with the players on the Jazz as it seems like they go through ups and downs quite a bit through the course of the season.  I know this season is ending but this is something that will continue from week 1 next season as well.  So without further blabbering here is the first ever Jazz player power rankings:

1. Gordon Hayward- When he is the go-to-guy the Jazz are a much better team.

2. Al Jefferson- If he played defense he would be number 1, really wants to win but not good enough to run the offense solely through him.

3. Derrick Favors- Allowed 21 points in 19 minutes against San Antonio (yes mainly because of his presence inside)

4. Alec Burks- Playing as well as anybody on the Jazz right now

5. Paul Millsap- Should be higher but seems lost or unmotivated as of late, played well against Dallas

6. Enes Kanter- Plays very few minutes but turns in big games still; 17 points in 21 minutes leading the Jazz vs Dallas

7. Marvin Williams- Shooting better and looks like he has a bounce in his step again. Solid defender.

8. Randy Foye- All-time leading Jazz 3 pt shooter in a single season and still a month to play

9. Mo Williams- When he shoots well this team can beat anyone, bad news is he isn’t shooting too well since coming back from surgery

10. DeMarre Carroll- Hasn’t gotten the time as of late but should be a rotational guy with his hustle and work ethic

11. Jeremy Evans- When he gets the time he actually has been playing very well

12. Jamal Tinsley- Best years are way behind him

13. Earl Watson- Seriously can’t believe this guy is in the NBA let alone gets playing time

14. Kevin Murphy- Not enough play time to til if he has what it takes to be in NBA
