Favors is the long term future of the Jazz. They should send him to Louisiana
to spend the summer with Karl Malone. Didn't Malone say he wanted to get
involved with coaching? Here's his first project.
I think that Milsap has worked hard enough that you let him see if he can be a
3. Against smaller 4's, Milsap can be effective. It just depends on how the
match-ups go to be honest. He can't do good at the 3 against Portland, but is
great at it against the Lakers. It's a tough job to go from being a 4 to being a
3. Completely different outlook.Jazz will go for the best player
available. I don't see any glaring hole in the team that needs repair. I think
they all just need to improve their defensive chemistry by working off season.
Anonigma: I don't hate Millsap. I love his hard work and dedication. But the
reality is he is too small to defend in the NBA at his position, the 4.IF the game was played on one side of the court, he would be a wonderful
addition to the starting lineup. But as a starter, he plays zero defense and is
a liability. As a bench player, he goes up against weaker 4's who are not as
polished in the post and he can contain them and use his agressiveness to be a
plus on the court.So either come off the bench or be traded. He is
not a starter. Nor should CJ be a starter with his laziness and poor shot
selection. Those two would be good off the bench along with Hayward. Start Favors and find a 2/3 player that can start next year and this team will
I don't understand why you guys hate Milsap so much. I'm a Milsap fan. Very hard
worker.When he gets injured, he stays in the lineup unless he's
REALLY injured.He's having a career year, although that might have
something to do with more minutes. He didn't even have an outside shot. Now, I
think eh's very capable of being a 40% 3p shooter. Milsap should be the
persona of the team: Someone who's not afraid to work hard. Sure,
he's short, but if he puts more work into agility and defense, he can be an
I can give him a year, but he should add a veteran coach like Del Harris or
someone of that ilk.....I just think Malone would be a great assistant and a
good guy to work with Favors...I almost think those two events should happen:The Jazz drafting Jimmer and the Jazz using the Greatest Power Forward in NBA
history Karl Malone to teach the young guys.
Hey CJ,Props to that post...for once I actually agree with you.
Millsap needs to hit the bench, and not expect more then 15-20 minutes a game,
or he needs to hit the road.
I see the Jazz going to bring in Malone to teach Favors and Big Al the game of a
postman and then we had perry jones or enas Kantor and a alec burke to the mix
via the draft.
@ SokolThe answer to your question is INJURIES...You cant put
everything on Corbin. The Nuggets got back players who where already
proven in the NBA. We got a PG (who got injured) and a rookie that is still
trying to find his way. Not to mention the other two rookies who were already on
the team. Corbin was dealt a bad card, let's evaluate him after a full season
with the same core of guys... INJURY FREE
One more thought, does anyone else think the players are intentionally tanking
We traded away our superstar, and got worse, even though 95% of our team is the
same....Denver got rid of their cancer and they are much better...What gives?I think it has more to do with our soft Utah Charmin, Utah Sour Notes, aka
Utah Titanic players...Jefferson just does not seem right...His shot
stinks...he is so slow with his moves, and as the Timberwolves enunciated, he
created a dead spot for the ball, and killed their offense. I know Big Al
tries, but I am not impressed anymore.
Miles: We need Millsap here. Not starting but on that second unit. It would be
dumb to let him go unless we get a stellar shooting guard in a trade. Him and CJ
if we keep him coming into that second unit and there can be some consistent
scoring there if we have just an average center to help Sap and clog the middle.
Watson will get them running and get them open looks and I like the Weaver kid
too so I'm hoping we pick him up and let Price go. Fit in Evans at the 3 and
that's a pretty decent second unit. I'm hoping Favors gets some significant
minutes these last couple games so he can get some knowledge of what his pace
will be next year getting those minutes.
PLEASE don't let Al teach Derrick his post moves! One black hole on the team is
enough . . . .
Al is right. He could learn from the rookie to put some effort in to the
defensive side of the game. Who will Favors learn from on this team to play
with great intensity all the time?
3 players who are rookies on this team have given myself more optimism I think
than I have ever had about the future of this team than I have since they moved
here from New Orleans! I used to go to the old Salt palace when Ricky Green and
others were here and you could walk in on game night and practically get any
seat you wanted in the arena that was half full, so I have seen many teams here
in SLC. Favors, Hayward, and Evans have me cranked right now and I pray it's
deserved. Go Jazz!
i was worried denver would get the new jersey trade as i can see favors will be
really a good player and i think will stay here as he didn't like the nj trade
talk when he got drafted. i think he will be stable here. also getting the draft
picks is a great bonus. he is not cocky or mean and is such a nice person. he
can be mean during the game and be a nice guy after. the new jersey draft pick
will be fun as there is some good players in the top ten this year. hope no more
drop out of the draft as to make it weaker. with the lockout i think the rookies
will start out with lower pay. they should take it now.thanks.
Favors needs more minutes.With two games left I guess it's unlikely Corbin
will change that.
Derrick Favors will become a superstar in this league in about five years when
he is playing for the Lakers. Unfortunately, the Jazz are in a tough spot
trying to get above-pay performance from scrappy undervalued players. The
players they have overpaid have been devastating (AK in particular), so they are
wisely gunshy about giving unproven guys big contracts. Sad reality of the NBA
Agree with the article and the comment from CocoNutzz. The best move the Jazz
have made in recent history was getting rid of Deron Williams. Great talent is
good, but he was a cancer that has almost killed the Jazz.
Back to the bench Millsap. Or even better, you will be traded away this summer.
This is a big man's game and you are too small to be a 4. It was nice having
you but your time has come to hit the road. Please take Corbin with you!!
This kid oozes so much potential. I just hope Favors puts in the work. The skies
the limit for him he just needs to keep working on it.You can see
glimpses of his Defensive instincts in the game with his blocking ability
especially on help D. Im not worried too much about that its his offensive game.
If Big Al can teach him his post moves Favors wil be an Allstar!
