Utah Jazz: How Do You Sell Rebuilds to Jazz Fans? , Opinion

an open letter

From: anonymous fan

to Whom It May Concern:

I am writing to inform you that I will not be renewing my season tickets. Bojan Bogdanvic. business of cliched it on Thursday; I’m outta here. I’m starting my own rebuilding phase like you. I am rebuilding my bank account. It may take years. Sell ​​tickets to anyone who is ready to see a team come back into relevance.

been there done that.

Here’s the problem: It’s hard to justify paying thousands of dollars for tickets when you’re separating your best players from right and left and making it clear that you’re rebuilding the team for the future—a project. Which will take, what, three to five years. Sheesh, they built the Eiffel Tower in two. Since you are rebuilding for the future, I will contact you in the future.

Sports franchises are the only businesses that can openly tell their customers: “Sorry, but we’re going to sell you very little product for a few years – too many losses, no playoffs, no star players, That sort of thing – so we can sell you a pretty cool model year down the road. Maybe. Who knows about these things? In the meantime, make the best use of it and make your checks payable…”

You Dumped Donovan Mitchell, the latest franchise player. He stayed for five whole years. He is only 26 years old and still has three years left on his contract. You Unload Rudy Gobert, the other face of the team. sent you Royce O’Neill to the East Coast And Patrick Beverly for the West Coast, And let’s not forget the fan-favorite Joe Ingalls, who was released from prison last winter. oh and coach Quinn Snyder resigns, Now you’ve turned Bogdanovic away – I was learning to say his name – and are the top four players from last season.

You traded pretty much everyone except the custodian and mascot (or have they gone too?)

Tell me again why should I pay so much to see this team?

Looks like we’re right where we were when Deron Williams was sent packing And then after Gordon Hayward threw us For a pretty girl, so to speak.

After recent wheeling and dealing and house cleaning, Jazz has gotten more draft picks than Selective Service, and they stretch for years. As Patrick Byrne of Sports Illustrated put it, “There may be some dark days ahead for Jazz Nation. Rebuilding isn’t always fun, and player development takes time.”

So give us a call when you’re done.

danny eng, the guy who’s in charge of jazz these days, is pretty busy slinging deals, and everyone knows he’s clever. As others have said, if you’re the general manager of the NBA and you see Ange’s name on caller ID, don’t reply. Good at what he does, but sees his work in progress? Jazz is going to lose a lot of games. They are essentially going to conduct practice sessions and auditions during the games to develop a new team.

After noticing that reconstruction was in progress, the Deseret News beat the author. Sarah Todd warns fans“The NBA playoffs can no longer be used to measure this team’s improvement. Instead progress will be based on whether a player can cut his turnover, if someone else can improve his passing.” , can learn to defend without fouling. Learning to celebrate small and moral victories will be absolutely essential.”

This is jazz we’re talking about, right – not junior jazz?

How would you like to be the person in charge of selling tickets? What does he use as a sales pitch? Excuse our dust while repairing?

Instead of maintaining the status quo and continuing to clinch regular-season victories and division titles, the Jazz has ditched it all and gone all-in on winning championships, but who can say it will be any different.

Maybe it really does finally come out and you’ll have a championship contender again, but who wants to endure another change while you wait to see if the team makes at least one of their newly acquired draft picks. Can hit the jackpot with pairs. Give me a call if this happens.
