I think it is becoming increasingly obvious that the Utah Jazz are likely to take an early vacation. No playoffs and likely most of the starters will not be wearing Jazz uniforms next year. The failure of the management is now clear after the disastrous acquisitions from last summer. The Jazz will have to reevaluate the teams future but one thing has become very clear. The starting five of old players will not take us anywhere as far as the playoffs are concerned and constitute no future for the Jazz. The starting five next year will be much younger players with an upside rather than players who are way past their prime and no longer competitive. If the Jazz don't go in that direction, the fan base will leave and the franchise will fail.

Big Al has been a headache for the Jazz too. He can score. But he takes nights off, takes plays off, shoots too often, turns the ball over, and is a huge liability on defense (pick and roll much?). He is a nice second or third option. But, should never be viewed as a first option. Before he came to the Jazz, he was never a winner. We should have never expected him to be the big man the Jazz needed. Jazz brass failed on this one.
Too much reliance on Big Al has also led to slower development of Favors and Kanter. Pass the ibuprofen.

Big Al is the hardest working over paid lazy fat man in the NBA. The Jazz should let him walk. They have so many options who want to sign with them. I expect Dwight will be beating the Miller's door down to play for these schmucks. Hopefully the Lakers win out and put the jazz where they belong.
