Not having Memo in our line up is like the Spurs not having Tim Duncan, or the Mavericks not having Dirk. Memo opens the lane up for guards to drive the lane because defenders have to respect Memo's outside shot. Right now teams are packing the paint and it is making it difficult on Jefferson and Milsap. I still think the Jazz could use a scorer. Get well soon Memo, this team needs you!

@Jazz-Nation. No doubt! Just look at last years playoffs. Memos combo of size and skills are valuable concidering how rare they are and how tough it is to defend. Every team in the NBA covets players like that. It's too bad Memo has had the injuries he has had. Early in his career he gave a huge lift to a young inexperienced Jazz team. Not near the player he was but from last years playoffs he was greatly missed.
