Kyle Korver

I was recently pleased to see that Cleveland traded Kyle Korver to the Utah Jazz. I have always liked Korver and am glad to see him playing with the Jazz again. He seems like a pretty good guy and I have always been in awe of his 3 point shooting. He has made more 3 pointers than any other active player and is currently #4 on the all time list after Ray Allen, Reggie Miller, and Jason Terry. If he stays healthy he will move up to the #3 spot this season.

The first time I remember seeing Kyle Korver it was not his shooting that caught my attention but the fact that he looked like Ashton Kutcher. By the way, if there is ever a movie about Robert Horry, Will Smith had better get the role because they also look so similar. Sorry to get distracted with the whole evil twin topic. By the way you can see my original post from 2011 about NBA look-alikes.

Anyway, I really like seeing Korver make shots but I am not blind to the fact that he frequently struggles trying to defend some of the younger and more athletic players. Even so, when a team needs to stretch the court out or if they are looking for someone who can get a 3 point shot off fast and usually make it, then he is the guy. I'm wishing him the best with his transition back to the Jazz and I'm hoping Utah get the bugs out soon and start playing like they were at the end of last season.
