What part of the sentence below is more disappointing? That Okur probably won't be back or that we're going to start Collins again in a playoff series against the best basketball team in the West?
"If the big Turk and one-time NBA All-Star is not ready to return Tuesday, as it appears will be the case, Jazz coach coach Jerry Sloan indicated this morning that he's inclined to stick with veteran reserve big man Jarron Collins opening at center."
Now, if I were Collins I would be practicing 14-foot jump shots at the top of the key like crazy these next couple of days. That's there any time he wants it. But something tells me come Game 2 we're going to see a lot of them clanging off the iron again. . .
