I have to disagree with anyone who thinks Favors is going to carry the load on
offense. He doesn't shoot the ball very good. Big Al, on the other hand,
is a fantastic shooter with a veritable cornucopia of moves. Why do some Jazz
fans want the Jazz to trade away their best offensive talent? I don't get
Jazz Source you are totally wrong about big Al...he is not a great defender, but
he is as good or better than millsap and is 10 times the offensive player
millsap is. If you want to trade someone trade millsap. If you have watched the
preseason games you would have senn Jeffy putting his arm around Favs and Kanter
and teaching them...and you would have seen millsap being a superstar (in his
own mind) and not caring about those two, or the team.
Oh no! Someone stop this from happening!Big Al teaching Kanter
about defense?Probably something like "Big Turkey, this is where
you stand and watch your man go to the basket" or "don't worry
about our PG getting screened off on those pick and rolls...let him worry about
catching up to his own man...that is too far for us big guys to step
out".The trade deadline can't come soon enough. Let Big Al
"train" someone else on his observation-style defense...we actually like
our young players to understand the concept that defense is not a spectator
Al might help the young guys but I could not see Boozer helping anyone that
might take a little glory from him.
"And Jefferson has done so knowing . . . someday down the road, one of those
young guys could wind up taking Big Al's job away from him."By the time that happens, Al will likely be headed for retirement, smiling,
knowing he's still a big part of the Jazz success.
