"JAZZ will most likely lose in the first round": Re: your comment about Greg
Miller. Perhaps you would like to "Pony Up" a few $Mil to help the JAZZ's
business out? I thought not!
Wow, listen to all the Boozer fans now. I like Boozer, just don't trust Boozer.
He will say what is political correct. I could put up with his defense if the
offense he played at Portland showed up more often. I just think he is say good
things cause it is contract time.
What would you do? Keep a player for 3 months then lose him for nothing, or
trade him for a first round pick? If this is your last year with the jazz you
probably go for the first option. The jazz have been relevant for 21/22 years
because KOC and Sloan are worried about more than just this year. You could use
the same logic for boozer, except they actually hope to resign him. Brewer was
gone no matter what at the end of the year.
I have never understood why people wanted Boozer gone. He and Williams are a
great combo. I wouldalmost safely say that Boozer might be in the top 3
power forward in the entire NBA. He fits the Sloan system and this year he is
hungry to win.I for one hope the Jazz keep Boozer for as long as he
can play basketball like they did with Malone.
Yep!....Boozer is only 52pts and 39rbds in the last two games!.......Trade
is junk... very average in d league!
I think Luke Neville would be a great pick-up for the thirteenth roster spot on
the Jazz. We need a true big man I think this australian can do it. I wouldn't
be surprised if the Utah Flash have already gotten a call.
We need a veteran center for the playoffs. Go for the Big Z.
re: "Jazz will likely lose in 1st rd" Oh c'mon! Reading some of these posts are
like watching the air go out of a balloon. Although I think its fun to speculate
about future moves in the off season and what not, there are limits. At some
point you have to not worry so much about what may or may not happen in the
future, and just step back and enjoy the game of basketball. The team is doing
great! Let yourself enjoy that! Give yourself permission to not be so
pessimistic and not take yourself so seriously. Geez people. Lets be a little
more positive out there and enjoy the game of basketball and all the great
stories involved in it please. Thank you :)
they are playing so much better on the road this year, and they dont have an
injured starter coming back into the line up to screw up the rhythm this year;
they will NOT lose in the first round. yea the brewer trade was not my favorite
either, but its not going to tank the team, come on. he's been struggling lately
anyway. the jazz will get homecourt for the 1st round and every team below 4th
will be an easy win. dont be so pessimistic
his play was pretty decent while he was with us, and he's a defensive-minded
veteran center who has no home right now. we can sign him for the minimum and
get quality bench minutes out of him. DO IT KOC!! much better than getting
another d-league project. dont get me wrong gaines was a good pick up, but what
are the odds we're going to find that again in the d-league, especially in a big
guy. get mikki moore!
Maybe, Carlos, is starting to gain a little maturity. It doesn't take a rocket
scientist to realize that Boozer has a pretty sweet deal in Utah. The entire
offense is built round the power forward position, he's got DWill feeding him
the ball, and he belongs to stable, reasonable franchise. Sometimes the grass
is always greener.
The jazz will not lose in the first round. They will go deep. Atleast West
finals. You guys who say dump boozer and keep milsap are crazy. Carlos Boozer is
a star. Milsap isnt a go to scorer like carlos is. Boozer will stay and the jazz
will create a dynasty!
I predict the jazz will lose in the first round and Boozer will not resign. I
think team chemistry will wane. Dwill will leave after he's contract ends
because of management. They have poor management who only wants to be mediocre.
Don't surprise if they move in the next few years. I think Greg Miller is
interested in selling cars than owning a basketball team.
It makes no sense to pay Boozer what he will demand with Milsap on the roster.
That will tie up too much money and gaurantee we won't have the legnth to
compete with the big boys. We have Milsap, Kirlinko, Okur and Koufus who can all
play the four. We need a 2 or a 3 that can score and a 5 that can give us 20 min
a game of tough defense and rebounding. O'Connor better do something good this
Carlos Boozer is a monster down low and has stepped up his defense big time.
He's been absolutely fantastic this year. I want Boozer to return.
"The Jazz on Monday hope to raise diabetes awareness (when fans) Buy...four hot
dogs"Maybe we can sell some green jerseys to save the environment
too?And burn some books to celebrate education?These are
all just ways marketing comes up with to make money. As least we can pretend
like we're making a difference without having to actually do anything. I was
going to go to the game, buy dinner and a jersey anyway. This way I get to save
the world while I am at it.I feel so good about myself now!
People whine about this trade.Facts are facts and that is that
Matthews is a better defender and shooter (massively better shooter) than
Brewer.Brewer is good for some steals but that also came at the
expense of stay in front of your man defense and our team should not gamble on
perimeter defense because we have poor interior defense.Brewer was a
great guy/good team mate but picking up another first round draft pick will be
VALUABLE as a bargaining chip.Having an extra first round pick to
trade up is how we got D-Will.Regarding Boozer staying. I think it
would be fine if he stayed. He plays his position well. The problem is Okur.
Okur and Booz together are not enough defensively so one or the other have to go
and I say Okur is the one who should be traded combined with that first round
pick for a legitimate big man center who can defend the paint.That
is my recipe for going deep in the playoffs.We are not that far
off.Brewer was our downfall against Kobe/Lakers. Kobe did not have
to defend him and they just packed the paint.
This was NOT a "salary dump" because the Jazz now have to sign a 13th player.
This was a great move to free up time for the other guards AND now they can sign
a veteran back-up big who will be waived soon - maybe Z or Milicic.
Greg Miller and Kevin O'Connor both lied to us about not making a trade just to
relieve salary cap.Do what you have to do, just don't lie to me.
Might as well say it now Thanks, and good luck in??? The Jazz should have got
something for him, they will never learn.
To DN...Enough said/debated over Boozer already.Let the team and
Boozer take care of business in the summer.Let the team remain focus on
2nd seed in the playoff.
We need him, don't kid yourself, unless we can trade him for Lebron. Otherwise
we will go down big time if he goes.
Dude just stay.Please.
Love ya booz.. hope to keep ya around for years to comeGood job booz
