Last year, I would have agreed 100% with the assessment, Big Al is the problem.
However, this year it is clearly evident something is wrong with Milsap. His
scoring, his defense, and most ovious his rebounding is off. At it
currently stands, I think trading Milsap and keeping Jefferson for the remainder
of the season is the best move, as Favors or Kanter can't replace AJ's
scoring or rebounding consistency, at this point of their careers. Milsap is one
needing to be moved if the jazz are to see progress from their young bigs.And, you can blame the refs for this loss. The officiating in the NBA is
simply the very worst of all of the professional sports. Baseball, football,
hockey and soccer, all have much more consistent officiating in the professional
leagues. NBA referees are horrible and merely a bunch of ego maniacs running
around acting like we come to the arena to watch them. If you think I'm
wrong, explain how the likes of Dick Bavetta can still be in the league.
I really don't blame the refs for this loss. I thought for the most part
down the stretch, they made the right calls.When they play good
teams they give good effort and they look like a playoff team, but when they
play bad teams, they well...don't give that effort. I blame Al Jefferson
for that. He could care less on the defensive end and is a black hole on the
other end. Plus last year in the playoffs vs the Spurs, he practically gave up
being down 3-0. I hate that. Trade him away, just like the Spurs would do if
someone is ruining their offense or not playing their best every night.If we get rid of Coach Ty Corbin and Al Jefferson, then the Jazz could be a
better team from here and give more playing time to the Jazz's future in
Kanter and Favors.
