Congratis Memo .
I love O Connor and his usual clueless comments.No one better?Please take a moment and read this. If i ran out of room I will
continue.We all have favorites mine was Haywood. However, you have
to have backup choices, one was Jeffries. Tonight there is a man that will fit
what you and I all need.His name is Ilgauskis.We need a
13th player.This is a player that will give us the respect going
into any gym of a player with real Size that can play.JBRA helped
explain to me in pro=rata he would cost the Jazz roughly $460 thousand for the
rest of the season. If he did well, we could sign him for one more season. That
is not a kill financially.This is a man that fits in with the Jazz
and what people in this state want.This is a man that lost his job
to Shaq and still was kept and embraced his replacement where they got along
great as teammates.He is a hero in his community. He was gutted to
leave Cleveland. He and his wife just adopted Lithuanian twins. They lost 2
children in 2007
he is a passionate, humble and moral man.he has the character to
reprent Jerry value on work and what we look for in this state with our
players.He loves kids. He is emotional, passionate.Most
importantly he can play.He gives you he threat of hitting a 20
footer. He can play most centers well one on one. yeah some matchups he would
have trouble.Can you imagine him and Mehmout at same time on floor
same time?He is a good passer. He is imposing and you have to watch
for him, he can board and is solid in the paint.More importantly,
he not only can play but will work hard, can be trusted and will win over and
embrace this community. If you entice him say offer 600, 700k you might get a
bargain.See if you do not, you will watch and get frustrated again
on these posts when Denver or Dallas takes him.Cuban is already
thinking about this especially with Dampier possible injury.Do you
want to see us get passed by again?Or do you someone relatively
cheap that can help us at worst win this divisionLets bond-just
Yo man KOC is a great guy. He has helped this team so much over the years.
Ronnie Brewer was my faveorite so I'm very disapointed, but Kevin has done more
good than bad by far. It's time to get real.
I agree totally, and would sign Z in a heartbeat. However, how can Jazz do that
now that trade deadline has passed? Wizards would have to waive Z, wouldn't
they? And why would they?
I agree with you Todd we need Big Z!!!! I think thats what the fans want too!!!
He can make us a contender!!!
Sorry for having to laugh at all your rambling on about the good qualitys of
Ilgauskis, but I'm sure that KOC knows all this, and that the Jazz will most
suredly make a play for him if posssible. I have no doubt whatsoever that
he is at the top of KOC's list, as he would be on mine. Not that I have any
say in the matter cause I don't. The ball is solely in Ilgauskis's
court. Regardless of the offer, he will choose the team that he really wants
to play for. What will a couple hundred thousand mean to someone that just
received how ever many million to be bought out?? I'm sure
Cleveland is at the top of his list. If not them, then HE will 'choose' where
he wants to play amongst the many suitors that he'll probably have. I sure wouldn't put any blame on KOC, or the Jazz FO if they can't get him.
Great job! not! why can't you trade carlos (bone-head) boozer!.So when is he
going to get hurt again. The next game? or next week! And yes we do need the Big
Z!!!.Cuz we all know bone-head is not going to resign with greg miller.He want's
out of UTAH. OR WE CAN GO FOR JAMES! THE KING!
Remember back when, before texting, when people used to spell words? These may
not be the worst posts (the ones where I wonder what was actually said) but for
pete's sake people, write!
I agree Todd that Z would be a good fit on the team and locally. He is Cleveland
though and I see him heading there after his 30 day mandatory wait. If it's a
bidding war, I don't see us getting involved or if we did, winning one. This is
what I see: If AK continues this play, i think we make a good playoff run (2nd
or 3rd round). Which would give Mathews the playoff seasoning he needs for the
future. Booz and Korver come of the books, then we can either attempt to re-sign
Booz or hopefully work a sign-and-trade to really get value back for him. That
possibility is why I think no trade occurred. The draft pick received from
Memphis is just another good asset for the future, mainly for trading purposes
because we all know our 1st round drafting record. I think the NY pick could
really turn into something good because I don't think we can miss inside the top
10 this year or it could also be a valuable trade piece.
I'm excited for the season now but i'm more excited to see how the off-season
plays out. The following year we either trade the huge asset that AK's contract
will be, or honestly I hope we ride it out and he re-signs for mid-level.Now if we hadn't extended Okur this summer, we would have even more
options, but i'm still optimistic about the future. I know a lot of people don't
like the small market excuse but this is how it has to be done, build over time.
Or you could be San Antonio and luck out and win the draft rights to Tim Duncan
and just build from there.
Pull Bruce Bowen out of retirement for the remainder of the year. He plays
great D (which the Jazz lack). He could help right away.
I say Big Z or Drew Gooden if he get bought out!
I'd love it, but I'm sure he already has a plan (secret deal) worked out. The
Bruce Bowen idea isn't so bad!
Is Larry Hughes going to get bought out? Maybe he can be a good addition!!!!
And every NBA "insider" that I've heard talk about the Clevelnad trade has
already said that it's pretty much certain that Big Z will be headed back to the
Cav's after 30 days (the mandatory waiting time to sign with the team that
traded you after being released). I'd be willing to bet Z just went along with
the trade in order to get Jamison & has no intent on playing for the Wizards or
signing with anyone else.
