On SportsBeat Sunday, Tom Kirkland sat down with Jazz radio play-by-play voice David Locke to discuss the upcoming season.
Highlights from David Locke:
Where are the Jazz going to finish in the West?
"Part of me thinks they'll be #2, just as much a part of me thinks they'll battle for the 8 spot... there's still a lot of things they we don't know."
Big Al Jefferson:
"He's got to be a lot better than he ever was in Minnesota, I mean a great deal better... The level he's got to play at is really high."
Is the new and improved Kyrylo Fesenko a mirage?
"I don't think so. I think that's the story of the preseason... the big 44 is plugged in and ready to go."
The "will he stay or will he go" Andrei Kirilenko:
"When he plays well, this team reaches a completely different level."
Jazz getting tougher:
"Francisco Elson, when he was a rookie in this league and should have been kowtowing to people, got into a thing with Kevin Garnett that ended up with Garnett leaving the bus underneath the stadium in a playoff series, going after (Elson)."
