Good luck with the surgery big guy. Come on Jazz lets beat Denver for Memo!

Get better soon Money Man!


Best wishes Memo, you will be back.

Okur should be able to shoot just as well as before. His game is similar to Big Z's in some respects. He should be able to rebound and hook around the basket. He will adjust. I expect him back around Christmas at full speed.


Get well soon Memo, we need your "money shots"
And Jazz let's beat Denver for the Money man!!


Can AK get some toughness therapy along with the Plasma? Unless he toughens up, he won't come close to earning his $16M/year contract. Perhaps some more time around Matt Harpring or Karl Malone or John Stockton would help. Obviously Jerry hasn't worn off on him. Perhaps toughness isn't something that can be taught. I certainly hope so. Come on AK. Toughen up mentally most of all.


I agree, he needs a little chat with Harpring!
