I have no idea why people think Jefferson is the only problem on this team.
Defense was not his problem last night. He had a few blocked shots, and Hibbart
was not getting great looks. It was West that was killing us, and he was
Milsap's man. That being said, I think Jefferson's help defense is
where he is really lacking, and it hurts us overall. If I had to choose between
Milsap and Jefferson, I would take Milsap based on his salary/production. I
don't think Big Al is worth 15 million. Al's numbers don't lie
though. If he goes, his stats go with him. I don't care how much you talk
about Favors, he cannot match Al's numbers on a consistent basis.....yet.
Favors still plays like he is 18, and needs to screw his head on and get to
work. I am still wondering if the Bucs are shopping Brandon Jennings. Al for
Jennings would work for me.
Al Jefferson has to go! He will not play any kind of defense, and he fails to
rotate out of the post to allow Millsap room to work on offense, (killing his
game too). Jefferson and Millsap cannot be on the floor together, (at all).
HoopsHype rumors has the Jazz shipping Millsap off before the trade deadline.
This will be a huge mistake for the Jazz. Although undersized, Millsap can play
the three, four, and sometimes five position, giving Kanter and Favors plenty of
chances to grow. Trade Jefferson now for a top notch point guard.
When I looked at what we were about to take on.....I knew we were in trouble.
Is the new GM watching any of these games? This team is a joke and needs
revamping quickly. Where is Jerry when we really need him?
