I love the comments by Millsap and Jefferson. I hope they both finish their careers here!

For those with open eyes, Corbin's proved he can coach.

This team has a fun future ahead of it. Time will tell whether the Jazz can ever become a force in the NBA again, but I think they will. Ownership and leadership works.

Positive comments by our bigs. I hope maturity will help this team jell. One glaring issue for the Jazz was that they do not know how to set or use a hard screen. The Spurs do! I put most of the blame on the PG. But the big men have to know where to set and how long to hold the screen. Your too easy to defend and defeat if your not using the screen correctly. Youth……….

We need a Damien Lillard, Kendal Marshal or Austin Rivers badly… If we get a pick.

Oh my!

DonLarson? Are you serious?

You want Jefferson here to finish his career? Is it the fact the he stands still for 4-9 seconds after he catches the ball, waits for the double, then the triple team and forces up a bad shot? Is that what you like so much?

Silly me, I thought the purpose of drawing a double or triple team was to find your teammate with a pass so they could get an open shot.

If Jefferson was gone yesterday it would not be soon enough.

His defense against the Spurs was as bad as any big man in the league. He won't guard the high pick and roll to help our PG which is a big contributing factor to why Tony Parker strolled into the paint at will and got layups or found his team mates for wide open shots.

Lets also not forget that AJ was taking only his 3rd free throw of the series in game 3! Yes that is from our low post presence. 1 FT a game!!!

Karl Malone had that many FT's with 2 minutes of the opening tip.

Jefferson is a joke on so many levels.

I agree with Jazz Source...i dont want al jefferson here...i'll trade him for a bag of cheetos if i can...a bag of cheetos can play decent defense than al jefferson...it would first attract the attention of the player...because its just awesome...and the player would open that bag...and eat it...and the ball will no longer be in his hands, it would then be picked up by one of our players for a fastbreak...see...Bag of Cheetos > Al Jefferson on Defense...

Jazz problem is the way the offense is structured and who is in the system..... Hence coaching.... I like Corbin but man, you can not throw the ball into the post 80% of the time, a screen wing roll to the SG 15% and who knows what the last 5%.... Jefferson is good, but not good at the same time, he never passes out of the post, he forces terrible shots that Jordan would dream of making and he is terrible on defense... but the biggest thing that slows this offense is that AJ can not run a pick and roll with any of our PGs. He sets picks yes but he never rolls to the basket, and that alone takes away from Harris and his strength of driving to the basket, drawing fouls etc.... Pick and Roll Harris and Favors is so much smoother and it tends to work often because Favors is not scared of getting blocked, he will roll to the basket and either be open for Harris to pass or help blow up the defense for Harris to get a layup or kick it out to the perimeter. AJ knows how to score from the

My favorite player on the Jazz is "Sap". He played on the same college court at La Tech as the "mailman". He always has "heart and fire". The Spurs were able to throw water on that fire. I am presuming that that should tell management that he needs to be moved away from under the basket where he can freelance. Also, I am not real happy with the constant undercutting of Kanter. He doesn't speak English very well and as someone who has gone through the middle of Istanbul on a Navy cruiser, I would ask that the one or two bullies to stop the prolonged initiation. One of these days, the "refrigerator" will "defrost".
