Read the players' comments, especially those by Millsap, and then tell me this hasn't been an irreplaceably valuable experience for this team -- yes, even worth losing a lottery pick for. Miss the playoffs, get the pick, and next year have a middling rookie and the whole team STILL has to experience what they are going through now. Better earlier than later.

Uh, perhaps someone should re-read Jeffersons comments when he has already said something to the effect of "...nobody may win a game against this team.....".

Al Jefferson in his NBA prime has been completely and utterly dominated by Duncan who is sooooooo old they have to manage his minutes.

Al Jeffersons pick and roll defense shows he wouldnt expend any extra effort even in the playoffs to try and get physical or bump anyone.

Al Jefferson is inherenly lazy and focused on his offensive stats which also are horrific in this series.

To the uneducated it would appear AJ had a good game last game but if you go back and watch the tape you will see that his lazy defense allowed far more points than he scored.

It was pretty apparent AJ was not even in the game mentally when the old Duncan literally out ran AJ down the floor and beat him to the hoop for a layup!!

How embarrassing for this franchise who prides itself on work and effort.

If they waived Jefferson before tonights game it would not be too soon for me. He never gets to the line either.

Play Favors even more Corbin!

Would someone tell Ahh Jefferson that showering the opponent with compliments is not the way to achieve a competitive edge. The guy sounds like he's courting (not the basketball kind) Duncan rather than trying to compete with him.

Not giving up? It doesn't look that way to me. That said, the Spurs are firing on all cylinders. Utah will play hard, it's just in their mind they look a tad beaten.
