Utah Jazz: 4 big men give Jazz plenty of options — and tough decisions, too
"What's best for the team now will end up being the best thing for him also, because he's still growing," Corbin said of 21-year-old Favors. "He's young. Enes is young. They're learning a lot. They have great guys to learn from, Al and Paul and Mo (Williams) and Marvin (Williams), veteran guys in this league. (They'll) do a great job of showing him things through the course of this year."
Jefferson acted like outsiders are more concerned about minutes distribution than those on the team.
The Jazz, he said, have something more important, more team-oriented, in mind for the 2012-13 season.
He'd consider the playoffs his payoff for watching guys like Kanter and Favors help the Jazz succeed.
"It's all about winning. If my minutes get cut and we winning, why would I complain? It's all about winning," Jefferson said. "I'd rather get my minutes cut and win than play a lot of minutes and lose. Right now at my point of my career, it's no more 'I' in team."
Making it redundantly clear that it's not about the Hokey Pokey or about whining, Jefferson added another time, "It's all about winning."
