    I hadnt even considered starting ak over Millsap, but the more I think about it, it might be the best thing. Millsap gives the Jazz everything you want from a bench player. Energy and effort, scoring threat. great rebounder. We'll see how well Jefferson and Millsap play together and they might be unstoppable, but I think Millsap can give us more off the bench and either way he'll be in at the end of the game..

    If Coach plans on starting AK or Milsap, that means that Big Al will be starting Center until Memo is back. When Memo gets back do you move AK to the 3 AL to the 4 and Memo at 5 or Memo at 4 and Al stays at the 5? Milsap sixth man? Either way, the Jazz gained depth,length and should rebound and play better defense this year. GO JAZZ!!

    I hope everyone does not have amnesia.

    When AK got 30 plus minutes a game and was starting last season we were winning 75% plus of our games.

    I'll take that.

    Some how some way Sloan needs to get AK 30 plus minutes a game to keep him motivated because this team is ALOT better when AK is on the floor doing his thing.

    Right up until he gets injured that is...I hate that part of it.

    might not? sap will get a little tired of getting passed over being a starter. he is expecting to start this year sloan said as much. same as last year he came in expecting to start. then sloan tells him he needs a spark that story gets old after 4 years. last year you could tellhe wasent trying as hard looked like he wasent too happy. this year look for it to be worse. went from boz gone he was going to be the man to not even starting. probly do the same as kirlinko whined and dident try very hard when he came off the bench only differance when he started he played great a couple of games then back to the same. i think we know what we get with sap if he starts bust his butt.

    Sap will get his minutes.I like it that Sloan looks at different combos to get the best team effort. Having enough good players that the second unit does not let down will be great. Thats why they call it a team sport..
