Wow, son of Larry is really bold! (SARCASM) It appears if he ever had an original thought, it died of loneliness...


I am glad that Korver is back but am not really thrilled with Okur or Boozer. In my opinion this just means that we Jazz fans can look for a 50 win season and an early exit from the playoffs. I really think that this team needs a face-lift. They need to get more athletic and tougher. I would love to see Boozer traded for Hamilton and another player even though Booz is a solid player. He is clearly not happy in Utah and is looking to leave so I wish that they would get it over with now. Why wait? What is to be gained?

Crazy Fan

Boozer is okay. I know he's an all-star and chose to come play here. I know he only averages 22 points and 11 rebounds per game. I know he led the team to the conference finals.

But that Paul Millsap. Boy, he's a star. He gets double doubles. And he really defends power forwards like Stoudemire and Gasol well. He shuts them out.

When he plays, we win like 70% of the time. He's a Laker killer. He's worth at least 11 million per year for 7 years.


i like apollo's idea. i think that trade would be good for the jazz and the suns.

Howard S.

It seems the Jazz brain trust have successfully managed themselves into the corner of paying the luxury tax to buy a mediocre team.


Mr. The Cavs Were Right: The Cavs did not dump Boozer. He dumped them.

Apollo Sun

Whoever thinks that Amare is not a better defender than Carlos Boozer is crazy. Anyway not worth arguing, point is a Amare/J.Richadson for Boozer/AK would beneit both teams, it works out financially.... but more importantly the Jazz would be contenders.

The idea that no-one trades to help others in their division isn't always true.... the Clippers just traded Zach Randolph to the Grizzlies.

'JAZZ Fan in the 415' i agree we could do with a center like Chris Anderson. Tyson Chandler is another one (if he can stay fit). And of course Marcus Camby. But i have to say i have high hopes for Koufos, so only if we moves Okur to 4 (got rid of Booz) and had Koufos as back up 5 to Anderson/Chandler/Camby. Bottom line i hope Sloan gives KK a chance to prove he's the Center we've been lacking since...... Mark Eaton?

todd from santa ana

better idea would now be boycott on opening night, except I will be accused by Houdini and others of being an outsider and no one will have the guts to do it.

Let me beat Houdini..."go Jazz, Go SLC, Go Sloan"

This roster can destroy the improved SPurs, Lakers and others.
