    I wish you well AK! Would love to see you back in a Jazz uniform again!

    I think AK is the most exciting player in the league, when we see him involved at both ends of the court. I hope he comes back. Having D-won't out of the line-up will help the team and AK's game.

    I think AK is a great player and very colorful to watch.

    I hope he and the Jazz can come to an agreement that will be fair and equitable.

    I wish him well.

    I thought this was a pretty good little interview. I loved when Travis went took it to the hoop in attempting to nab a convert and AK completely stuffed him. Boo Yah!

    @Captain L

    Hayward maybe thin for the 3...but he does have the height...i just hope they make him more involved this year...after his explosive end of last year

    Travis, you need to keep in touch with AK and maybe sometime down the road you can get him to look into the church more seriously. AK has always been a good player to have on the team, if he could shoot and stay healthy he would be a top 10 player in the league.
    The Jazz probalby won't resign him but if we could get him cheap enough , he would be worth bringing back. Both CJ & Hayward are undersized at the 3 spot, both are better suited to play the 2 spot. We need a long athletic 3.

    LOVE Andrei as a person! As a basketball player...he is one of my favorites when he is healthy and has his head and heart "in" the game. Seems like some of the personalities around the Jazz, along with contract and other circumstances, have made it difficult for him to have his head and heart in he game at all times, which was hard to watch. My wish would be that Andrei have a Stockton (or Malone to a lesser degree) type career and stay with the Jazz no matter the situation or money. Looks like that probably won't happen, so I wish Andrei and his family all the best! Blagoadrim e lyubim!

    Will always like AK. He had his ups and downs but when he was on, he was sure fun to watch!

    He's been overpaid and he's been fragile, but AK is a good guy. If he doesn't come back it'll be weird seeing a Jazz team without him. Either bring him back for WAY less money or let him go.
