    Dear Raja,

    Due to your experience coach thought you deserved for him to thoroughly discuss his plans with you, so he did. You're just too old to remember. Or to shoot well. Or guard anyone. Or stay healthy. Or act mature.

    Corbin should stick with this lineup. When Millsap comes back, he should come off the bench too. Bell and Millsap are not starters in the NBA. Millsap can't defend anyone and Bell is too old to defend anyone.

    Changes have to be made in the offense for Utah to beat MN. Last time they double teamed AJ and that ended the offense. To much of the offense was 1 on 2 or 3 by AJ and it did not work.

    Favors, CJ and hopefully Harris will need to carry more scoring load. AK is going to have to put in another great game.

    The Jazz need to figure out how to run more "system" plays and less 1 on 1. AJ needs cutters when the ball goes in to him. He also need to read the double team and kick back out.

    If Bell is not on the floor with AJ (as much) he should get more spot up shots and his production should improve.

    Getting Millsap back would really help. His absence tend to focus the offense on AJ and the left side. Favors does not know how to run most system plays yet.

    It would be nice to see some D.

    AJ is probably better than Boozer and NJ beat BOS without DWill.

    It will take months for Corbin to redesign the offense around AJ/Millsap/Favors and new guards with shooting skills.

    I thought Bell's initial "complaint" comments were classy: he took care to point out that the complaint was minor and that he held no grudges, but he just honestly answered the reproter's question about his reaction to the change. Having said that, it's best now to just be mum, as both he and Coach are doing. I think the sportswriters are trying too hard to blow this into something it isn't. Raja contributes more to the team than shows in the box score. His effort and defense and leadership contributions are great. He's a pro and he'll continue to contribute significantly off the bench. If CJ does better as a starter, I say go for it!
