The expectations for the Jazz entering the 2022-23 season were modest. Caesars Sportsbook tabbed Utah’s win total over/under at 23.5. They bested that mark by Game 48.
For Will Hardy, snap judgements are anathema to his style. The team that was cast off won’t be a team of cast offs. It yielded a group that upended expectations and finished 37-45.
“It’s something that we’re gonna strive for as an organization,” Hardy explained. “We won’t always get it right because you do have moments that are decision moments. But if we could we known as an organization that didn’t judge players too early, that’d be as high a compliment as you could get.”
