The JAZZ.

The NBA sent out a survey to all of the Team General Managers, asking some pretty interesting questions. Obviously the Lakers & Lebron were at the top of most lists, but the Jazz were very well represented. Below is an excerpt from the survey article as well as some interesting results.

“This was perhaps the craziest off-season in NBA history, one that shook up the league’s landscape and never seemed to end. Even as training camps opened, the NBA’s general managers were keeping busy. But they did find time to fill out NBA.com’s ninth annual GM Survey.”
