With the Jazz down 0-2 against the Spurs, AK-47 recently said he thought the Jazz had hit their ceiling. When you've hit your ceiling and you're down 0-2 in series, that's kind of a bad thing.
A few other Jazz players, such as Carlos Boozer, have fired back, saying that the Jazz still have a chance.
While AK-47 has been mocked in these playoffs for stinking during the Houston series and crying, I think he's right about the Jazz hitting their ceiling. And I think the steroids are starting to get to Carlos Boozer's head.
The Spurs are not the Rockets. And it's not like the Jazz are pulling a Cleveland Cavs in this series. They're down 0-2 because they've had their asses kicked by the Spurs. Sure Utah is undefeated so far in the playoffs at home this year, but that's about to change. As much as I hate the Spurs, and as much as I think the Suns would have beaten them in 7 if Amare and Diaw hadn't been suspended, I have to admit that the Spurs are playing some incredible ball right now.
And AK-47 realizes this.
Athletes too often play the stupid "We can come back" card even when they themselves know they have no chance in hell. I understand why they do this, but sometimes it's fun to just hear someone give the straight truth.
You're right AK, you're team is toast.
