There are only five 20-10 guys in the league this year, and Big Al is one of them, averaging 21.4 points and 10.4 rebounds per game during his first year in Charlotte. He's even getting MVP buzz.

As the Bobcats' go-to guy, Jefferson, who was recently featured in Sports Illustrated, may lead the club to its first playoff appearance since 2009-10, when it was swept by the Orlando Magic in the first round. The Bobcats are currently sitting in the Eastern Conference’s No. 7 spot with a 34-37 record.

Very upset that we lost Milsap, Jefferson and Carroll. What has been gained with Kantor, Favors and Hayward? No chance for a playoff spot now or in the forseeable future, that's what. So many wanted players to be gone last year. Now the same people want this year's players to leave. Should have been happy to keep the above mentioned players.

I'm all in for the youth movement. Not a fan of the 7th and 8th spot every year. I would rather have a couple of bad seasons and start over than live through another mediocre 8 seed season. Love the young guys and with a couple of pieces and more experience this will be a good basketball team. Go Jazz


The Jazz should have kept Milsap for veteran leadership alone much lest everything he brings in his game! Every year he has improved his game. The Jazz have no consistent leadership!!

Millsap and Jefferson will not lead their team to a playoff series win in an easy Eastern Conference. Definitely never would have done it in the west.
