I am a Nuggets fan but I have respect for you. One of my biggest problems with the Utah "Jazz" goes back to the old days of the ABA. Many teams move and take their names with them and it makes no sense. For Instance, the Los Angeles Lakers used to be the Minneapolis Lakers....that made sense. Them taking that nickname to Los Angeles does not. In the case of Utah it's happened TWICE! In the American Basketball Association the Los Angeles Stars moved to Utah and kept that nickname (Also won the 1971 ABA Championship) and it made no sense. Then when the New Orleans Jazz moved the name stayed....ridiculous!
