Injuries in the NBA are even worse for athletes than the NFL.And the
reason is that the season is twice as long as it should be.David
Stern (and the rest of the league's execs) see only dollar signs and really
couldn't care less what's best for the players.
I was afraid we pushed Okur too hard too soon to get back 100 percent. At least
we'll have him for the playoffs but its looking like we'll be a 5 to 8 seed.
Why aren't we pushing to get Carmello here in Utah? The Lakers are talking
about trading Bynum for Carmello. How about AK and CJ for Carmello; both are
hot or cold but Carmello would give us a certainty at the shooting guard, plus
we have Raja and Hayward. I'm not buying Jerry's post interview "we're not
looking to trade anyone." Let's make a deal but we have to keep Jefferson
Seriously, all we have to do tonight is put a bag in front of the visitors
tunnel and Boozer is toast for the game.
@GaryS- I don't think you can pin that down on Memo. You must take
into consideration that Memo hasn't played at 100% yet. He looks out of shape,
which is understandable seeing how he couldn't run for 6 mos (and has probably
led to his back problems.) Memo at 100% would definitely help this team out.On the bright side, if he misses half the season, don't the Jazz get his
salary back from their insurance?
And we all complained about Boozer! Wish the Jazz had him now! -----No, I'll take Memo who is having 1 injury plagued season while
recovering FROM A TORN ACHILLES. Look at the numbers before this season. He
played in over 90% of the games every season. The dude is tough, and like some
other former Jazz players who will be in the ESA tonight(Boozer) I don't get the
feeling that he doesn't want to play.

HoleNot me, I'm glad Boozer's gone.

First, I wish Memo all the best. I hope he heals and recovers without too much
pain. No one should have to go through this.However...Jazz record this season with Memo: 5-8 (.385)Jazz record this
season without Memo: 26-14 (.650)Without Memo, we lead the division
and are 4th in the conference.With Memo, we're making a serious bid
to draft Jimmer.I think it would be best for Memo AND the team if he
took the rest of the season off to heal properly.
I love Memo, but his best days are behind him. Now the Jazz are chained to his
$9 mil/year contract with little to show for it.
It could all be over for Okur. With all that down time from various problems
goes the game skills also. sorry about that Mehmet, you are a fine man and we
miss yuu. On with the Jazz, you are doing better lately and we have some great
bench talent to draw on.
Memo is an injury waiting to happen.
