Nobody from ownership (the Millers) was made available for Media Day interviews. Jazz prez Randy Rigby was the highest-ranked interviewee.
My first Jazz media day was in 1986. Big question: Will Rickey Green or John Stockton start at PG? Answer: Green. Stockton started 2 games.
Jazz changed media availability to before practice years ago. Don't want to name names, but John Stockton liked it not dragging on and on.
Two interviews. One man. http://t.co/EV7zZM5YhF

When they first met, Quin Snyder told Enes Kanter the big man is going to shoot 3-pointers this season.
