A Jazz team that doesn't rebound but who is first in defending the 3-point shot. What kind of a bizarro world are we living in?

Then rebounding problem will not be solved by Memo's return. The rebounding problem will be solved by what was said in the article by a host of players AND increased minutes for Fes. Simple as that. I do see the Jazz playing Memo when he returns, of course, but I'm hoping that it is to showcase him for a trade. The Jazz with either Memo or Jefferson logging the most minutes at center won't get to the NBA finals. Put Fesenko in there for 25-30 minutes a game and let's just see what happens.

Boxing out is a big issue and also does anyone have a spare set of hands that Jefferson can borrow? Holy cow I can't even count how many times the ball hits him in the hands and he can't hang on. It's a problem in rebounding and he just drops a lot of passes that lead to turn overs. I'm anxious for him to find his groove and be the player he can be and that will be great for the team, but the poor hands issue is something that stands out to me about his play early in the season

News to Jefferson..you hope help is on the way???? hey buddy you are the help.

Last year we had a feisty pf and he religiously posted 12-15 rebounds per game in addition to double digit scoring.

Jefferson you are bigger and supposedly a better athlete. Were you to increase the number of rebounds you get by 6 every game and become dependable on the offense you might not get benched during the 4th quarters of important and big games, and it would help the Jazz reach their potential this season.

Sorry Al, Okur is not your answer to rebounds, look in the mirror for the solution.

As always, Okur will sacrifice his body and his stats to try ot block opposing center off of the boards. This lets our PF clean up. Al's rebounds will go up, when Memo is on the floor.

As good as Milsap shoots could we see a lineup of Milsap at the 3 CJ or AK at the 2 Jefferson at the 4 and one of the 7 footers at the 5 that is a big line up. Could help in the rebound department.

Dont know how or why anyone is even comparing Fes to Mark Eaton. Mark Eaton was a nightmare for even Hakeem Olajuwan. Fes can guard Big Bird. Yesterdays game is gone. I get completely bored with basketball the minute I start thinking about the 80's. And its far much worse when the Lakers win now. In fact it is the worst pain in sports!

Big Mark is a legend and a member of the Utah Sports Hall of Fame and a superior contributor to the Park City and Salt Lake City communities. Big Fes is a goofy young kid trying to figure out how to put his uniform on the right way. No need comparing the two.

I would love to see one game where CJ starts at the 3 Milsap at the 4 and Fes at the 5. Big Al and AK come of the bench, just to see if that would help?

C_FESENKO-Memo when he gets back soon.

Jefferson is the sole problem for the Jazz rebounding issues. Interesting though is Millsap is playing more and rebounding less. There seems to be something odd between the two. Boozer would push his own team mates out of the way to get a rebound. I liked that.

Jefferson needs to man up. Do the job he is paid to do.

CJ has been rebounding a lot more this year. Same with Dwill. So the blame is on the bigs. Not too sure where AK stands in all this?

I do like the idea that Jerry's team is defending the 3 better. It helps when you get rid of Korver who can't defend himself out of a paper bag. adding Bell definite plus.
