Before the Jazz moved from New Orleans to Utah, as Salt Lake City had previously been home to the Utah Stars of the ABA from 1971 to 1976.

 

As for the Jazz, their history goes back to 1974, when they started play in New Orleans, Louisiana. Despite having high scorers such as Pete Maravich and Adrian Dantley in the lineup between 1975 and 1983, the Jazz wouldn't make the playoffs until 1984, long after Pistol Pete had departed.

In the franchise's first ever playoff appearance in 1984, they defeated the Denver Nuggets of Kiki Vandeweghe, Alex English and Dan Issel in the first round, but lost to the Phoenix Suns of Walter Davis and Larry Nance in the second round. This postseason appearance would be the first of 20 straight.

In 1992, the Utah Jazz made the franchise's first trip to the Western Conference Finals, where they faced Clyde Drexler and the Portland Trailblazers. Although the Jazz were led by Karl Malone and John Stockton they succumbed in 6 games to the Blazers.

In 1996 the Jazz once again advanced to the Western Conference Finals only to lose in 7 games to the Seattle Supersonics of Gary Payton and Shawn Kemp.

The following two seasons would see the Jazz reach greater heights. First, in 1997 the Jazz defeated the Clippers, Lakers and Houston Rockets to make it all the way to the NBA Finals. In the match up against the Bulls, the Jazz showed their mettle by taking two games against a Chicago team that had won 69 games during the regular season. Nevertheless, the Jazz couldn't pull off the upset and fell to the Bulls in 6 games.

1998 saw the Jazz make it to the NBA Finals for the second consecutive season. To get back to the Finals they weaved their way through the Houston Rockets, San Antonio Spurs and Los Angeles Lakers. In the Finals, the Jazz shocked the Bulls by winning the first game. The Bulls came back to win games 2, 3 and 4, while the Jazz took game 5. In game 6 Michael Jordan hit the game winning in the final seconds as the Bulls won their sixth NBA Championship.

The Utah Jazz returned to the Western Conference Finals with a team centered around Mehmet Okur, Carlos Boozer, Andrei Kirilenko and Deron Williams. Despite the stellar play of  Boozer and Williams, the Jazz were derailed by the San Antonio Spurs of Tim Duncan in 5 games.

The following is a list of some of the Jazz's most memorable players:
