The fact is Milsap like ALL thr other past Jazz PFs benefits
GREATLY from sloan system, a system that gets the PF many many touches.THe jazz have NEVER won a chamionship because sloan's system relies too much
on th WRONG positions namely the PG and the PF,Chmapionship Teams
have CLEALRY relied more on the SG, SF, and C positions,Lakers:Kobe, ariza gasol,kove artest gasol, kobe shaq,magic
kareem,Boston: peirce allen ainge bird parrishDetroitprince, rip, wallace,lambier, dumasHouston drexler, hakeem, Chicago pippen
jordon san antonio manu, duncanmiamia,
wade, shaqand so it gos, as gosthsoe psition so goes the
team, the jazz have NEVER develop nor had great players in the SG,
SF and C positions the closest they have came was a broken down
hornacek.and the jazz have NEVER won a championship.it
nice Milsap is do som uch wiht al his toucheds, but fact maust come
from behind all time will carch up wiht them,and we are all
beginnning to see why minnesota gave up jefferson for koufos!,talented
but inconsistant, lazy at learning the offense.slaon continues to
play players OUT of position: CJ_AK_jefferson,
@netmaster. Nice insight dude! I totally agree. I know NBA players get
paid too much money but I feel guilt that Milsaps salary is not higher
concidering what Boozers contract was and what AK47s is. O'Conner was right
about Milsap. But man does O'Conner have a lousey track record on traft picks
and contracts. Milsap is a bargain but Boozer,Ak47,and a few others have been
headaches. Milsap deserves more.
Watching the Jazz is fun again!!!Milsap brings what Boozer never
could - HEART!!!No nonsense and not braggadocios!!! I love the
JAZZ.Please Miller family, bring in more talent with a similar
attitude. I wouldn't care if we lost every game as long as they had the work
ethic, heart, and effort that MILSAP brings.GO JAZZ!!!
Pual can Ball!!!
D-Will and Milsap have carried this team this year.Since this article is talking
about money and bargains, D-Will should get AK's contract and Milsap should get
D-Will's contract and AK should get Milsap's contract!
If he keeps this up the front office should give him a Christmas bonus.
Millsap is just the kind of player that Jazz fans love. He has that
"it" that Boozer - for all his talents - never had. I'm
not sure if it's just humility or hard work or both, additionally with a sense
of pride wearing the Jazz jersey not as a mercenary but a member of the team and
organization, Jazz fans can't help but love this guy.Best of luck to
Paul - a REAL Jazz man.
Does anyone know the most point Boozer's get in a game as a Jazz player?
The secret to Millsap's success is he adds new things to his game each year.
Same with Dwill and CJ. Fes needs to start doing the same.Now the
problem with Millsap is:When his contract is up, he will demand $15M
on the open market.He or Dwill will end up leaving in a few
years.If we could get rid of AK's contract and sign a couple of subs
that can play, the Jazz will be really really good next year. They don't have
the horses off the bench to beat the Lakers in 7.
After the 2006 draft I was listening to a Larry Miller interview as I was parked
outside a workout center. Miller was predicting that Millsap soon would be
considered the steal of the draft. The interview was so interesting and Miller
was so frank that I couldn't stop listening, which really cut into my workout by
the time I finally turned off the radio. Oh, how right LM was. As it turns
out, there were two real steals in that draft -- Millsap at 47 and Rajon Rondo
at 21. If the 2006 draft were held today, those two might go 1 and 2, followed
by Roy, Gay, Aldridge and Tyrus Thomas, who were all drafted among the top eight
anyway. Most other first-rounders already have faded into oblivion and all but
maybe four second-rounders. Other mild steals were Shannon Brown (25) and
Jordan Farmar (26). So who was the real steal of the draft? Millsap -- because
every other team in the draft could have had him. Twelve teams passed him
twice, including Utah in a way with Brewer in the first round and Dee Brown,
just one pick before Millsap. Four teams passed him three times.
Well heck, I just love it when writers use words like "dang" in their
stories, gosh darn it. This was one heck of a story, a dang good read, a darn
good article. Paul Millsap is a heck of a player, a darn good rebounder, and a
dang good guy to boot. Golly, the Jazz are a dang good team. Gosh, I just love
watching them play and shoot that darn ball into the dang hoop. It's so dang
entertaining. I'd like to stop, but I have to hammer home my dang point that
words like "dang" only exist in Utah, and using them in any serious
newspaper immediately undermines credibility. So, gosh darn it, I hope you guys
publish this comment, dang it. People, especially Jody and Randy Hollis need to
see this, dang it.
@Live Hard- do you ever watch Jazz games? Millsap is there evey night busting
his tail off. It's fun to see him succeed. You gotta love a guy
Milsap has always been fun to watch as a rebounder and close-in scorer. He is
deft enough and powerful enough to score underneath against opponents taller
than him, which makes him especially valuable to the Jazz. When Fes finally gets
his 25-30 minutes a game, the two will make one of the best NBA rebounding, shot
blocking duos. Saw the video of him swishing 3s in practice. His motion was
close to effortless. Go Paul, love your determination to succeed...you are fun
to watch, man.
Good attitude, great work ethic, superb teammate and always says the right
things.You're worth every penny Paul! The Jazz have a real bargain
at Power Forward.Makes me forget ...Now what was that
other guy's name?
I think one of my favorite plays Paul has did was when he Stuffed Shaq. I never
have seen any one stuff Shaq that hard before and realized he is amazing on both
ends of the court. I loved seeing him show up Boozer when he got hurt and proved
that he was all around better than him. He has a love of the game and
humility that makes him a true star. I hope that he continues to help inspire
his team to do better.
KOC was right all along.
