Leave Jefferson out of the lineup and everyone gets to move and play open court basketball. Bring Jefferson back into the mix and slow the game down to a crawl, add a little zero defense, and the Jazz will look just like they did before he got hurt. Boston and Minnesota got better when the dealt him, so will the Jazz. They need to actively pursue a pass first defensive minded point guard. Mo gets hurt often, Tinsley tries hard, but cannot shoot a lick. Hinrich, or Ridnour would really help this team.

"Leave Jefferson out of the lineup and everyone gets to move and play open court basketball."

Is that a good idea w/ Nash directing the Lakers?

Better than Jefferson standing with that stupid look on his face being beat on the pick and roll while Nash penetrates off of the high screen. Jefferson is exceptionally bad against dribble penetrators like Nash. He also slows the rest of the offense down, everyone is worse with him in the offense. If Favors is still out they will need the big body, but he just gives up so much on defense. Didn't they look better the last game? They also played well without him in preseason.

i agree with you...but i wont target Ridnour or Hinrich...i would however...target eric bledsoe and marshall of phoenix...i would definitely trade Al Jeff...he may have a good stat line...but his defense...and being a blackhole on offense...is a killer to the development of a young team...I might trade him to houston...for Toney Douglas, Dontatas Montiejunas and Chandler Parsons...or trade him to phoenix...for Goran Dragic and a few first round draft picks...and...i would definitely get a new coach since our offense has become extremely predictable...and to be honest...Corbin is not a good coach...actually the entire coaching staff should go...target Karl Malone as the strength and conditioning coach...try to grab nate mcmillan to coach..although his offense is extremely slow...it was effective even if he didnt have his stars on the team...
