Bringing Koufos up now is like putting sun screen on after you're already
sunburned. It's too late.
All you people posting in here all the time saying we should get rid of Okur
because he can't play defense... well guess what, now your going to get to see
how bad the Jazz would be without him. This series is going to get u-g-l-y if
your wish comes true and Okur doesn't play.
than watching a skin and bones skeleton & a man who's ego is bigger than a big
nose pointing in the air.
plays ...we LOSE,he`s a soft unproductive LOSER,kobe will eat him up,as he
always has,play Koufos or Fes some,and let Matt use all his 6 fouls on lobe ,the
Finally! Sloan is bringing Koufos back! The player had 8+ points average and 5+
reboudns in the games he was playing at the begginning in just 15minutes time!!
He can definately do a lot more but old man Sloan is infamous for not utilising
young players and I am afraid Koufos will take that road as well... Unless, they
trade him to another team.
No complaints or suggestions. Just give it a good try.There is always next year
and more experience behind you. GO JAZZ!
good post Chuck. @Fes and KoufusWho are your top five
power forwards in the game? If Bosh is not in there I think you may be the one
suffering from nimroditis. I agree with the rest of your post though. Bosh does match up offensively with larger pf/c plus he plays D fairly well.
That does solve the problem. In the jazz's system he could be a 25-30 and 10
guy. I would seriously trade Okur,Boozer, AK(just throw him in for free), and
Milsap(if necesary) for Bosh. Dwill, Bosh, and brewer would supply most of the
offense. That way having defensive centers, such as Fes and KK, will not hurt
Koufos and Fesenko, just for about 15 minutes each if Memo plays, longer if he
doesn't, are Utah's best chance to offset the length of Gasol and Bynum. Collins
is a smart player who knows his elbow from a hot rock on the court, but it's
Fess who has the strength to go toe-to-toe with Bynum, and Koufos matches up
very well physically against Gasol, who is a nightmare as a 7-foot power forward
for anybody to guard. Jazz got nothing inside in the second half of Tuesday's
game because they're just not big enough with their veterans. Hopefully the
younguns get a chance to gt their licks in.Peace out from the Jazz
...that Okur is going to be out for a while.The bleak fact that Okur
will not be playing is going to make the Laker beating even worse for us.Oh joy.
We need both of them on the floor at the same time in order to just size up.
The problem with that though is that neither of them have much for offense which
leaves it Booz, D-Will, and Brewer/Korver to do all the scoring.Basically what this means is that we are going to get spanked anyway you slice
it. May as well get koufus and Fez some minutes so they can get a
taste of NBA playoff intensity b-ball. We are going to have to get them on the
floor at some point especially when Booz leaves.Who was the nimrod
who said trade for Bosh? He is thin and not tall enough--barely taller than
the too short Boozer and is not that strong.What has Chris Bosh done
for his teams in the NBA? He has not elevated them to anything of any
significance.We better hope 1 or more of all the bigs we have
Koufus, Fez, and those other two european albatrosses we drafted pan out
eventually or we're toast for a long time to come because there are very few
legit bigs available to solve our problem inside.
Koufos should have been playing all of the last two months. We would have won an
extra game. Calling him up is nice but will he play? They Jazz knew
they were hurting at big and were one injury away from disaster at C (Okur has a
bad back). They should have been developing Koufos. He sat. Yes you
know what you will get with Collins. A sure loss. At least try Koufos and see
what you get. Bynum is still playing on one leg and rusty. Fez may be very
helpful, but will he play? The problem is Sloan he has not utilized
his player's capabilities all year unless forced to. Koufos on a bad night is
not worse than Collins on a good night.
With CJ the Jazz lose in 4 TRUST ME!
I Agree. Boozer Should be sent to Orem. I'm so much more excited for the
offseason than the post season. I think the Jazz should do what the Cavs did and
go ask their best player who they should add to their team to make them play
better. Its working for Lebron. Its no secret the Jazz lack
Chemistry. Get Dwill some guys that will play for him. I Love Jerry
Sloan. But the game is changing and he needs to adapt. And if he's not willing
maybe its time we find someone else.
Man the Jazz are absolutely terrible and are gonna get worked in this
Can Boozer be sent to Orem to work on his D???
Big Jazz fan in IL....I realize it is highly unlikely that they will win the
series but I would love to see them play with some passion and energy for a
change.Lets get a couple...please!
My bad I did type VRod. I know he was traded and totally meant Vujacic.
The flash have a chance to win the championship. LEAVE HIM THERE.
This is a great move to bring another big man. I believe that the Jazz can now
offset some of the advantage the Lakers have in the post. I think Koufus will
get more playing time that Fez. He is more active and more of a difference
maker. I am calling it now Jazz in 7! And the Jazz will steal one of the first
two in LA.
TRADE DWILL FOR STEVE BLAKE! trade carlos boozer for a chesseburger okur for
robert swift trade ak miles brewer and korver for iverson! millsap kosta and
knight to the knicks for crawford and lee
Chris Bosh...Chris Bosh....Chris Bosh....is the ANSWER...!Bosh is a blue
collar worker who can give the Jazz that BIG, defensive, man in the middle we so
desperately need. He would work well here with Salons, demand for hard-nose
ball. He and D-will are tight and he wants out of Toronto....!D-will &
Bosh would be the foundation to build a team around and the foundation that
would take us to the promise land....!Go Jazz!!!!!!
Radmanovic was traded mid season to the Bobcats. The match-ups you pose don't
even exist. Man to man, the Lakers may have Kobe score, but the Jazz could
contain the 3 and that is where they are getting creamed. One player cannot win
a game. If Miles is on Kobe, and plays with the same effort the win streak, the
Jazz can win. Defense on the interior will make or break this. Man up, Boozer.
you guys realize Radmonavic was trade to the Bobcats...
Way to step it up for the playoffs. What a wimp!!
CJ is the only one on the team athletic and quick enough to hang with Kobe. The
other problem is AK can't hold his own against Odem. Not even close. Harpring
would do a better job on him. Korver can not hold Vrod either. The only way we
win is if every player makes an effort to contain their man and not let them go
do whatever they want to do. Don't foul Kobe on every shot and keep him off the
line. That means, don't let Harpring guard Kobe.
Walking wounded--ending the way it all started. Too bad.Does
recalling Koufos mean he'll get playing time ahead of Fez? No need to call
Koufos up if not. It's not like either would get that much playing time,
anyway.Collins would start ahead of either due to his greater
experience and Sloan's knowing what he'll get from Collins. Uncertainty equals
bench time.Not sure whether having or missing CJ means anything to
the Jazz' success against the Lakers. The kid's too inconsistent to be depended
If LA has the 3 best bigs in the series we lose big time. We need
Boozer to be at least one of the 2 best bigs in this series. And Okur has to be
better than at least one of their bigs. Korver can't let V.
Rodmanavic be so much better than he has been against us the past two years.
VRod has found a way to constantly get open, playing with Kobe and Pau might do
this, and he has hit his open shots. Korver has struggled to get open and
missed the open shots he's received. This can't happen if the Jazz are going to
win. If Booz can be one of the best 2 Bigs all series, KK match
VRod, Dwill outplay fish, and AK hold his own against Odem we might make this a
series. Big challenge ahead for the Jazz. Here's to team Defense
and big prayers being answered. GO JAZZ!
5 points 5 rebounds here comes our savior for the Lakers. I like KK and Fes but
if that's who we need to win this series we are in trouble. We don't
match up well with the lakers at all. If you go through the match ups we have
an advantage at only one position and that is PG over Fisher. And Fisher does
all the little things you wish your 5th or 6th guy would do, and what ours don't
do. Dwill vs Fisher = Advantage Jazz (Big Time)Miles/Brewer vs Kobe = Advantage Lakers (landslide)Brewer vs Ariza
= Even (Only because LA exposes Brewers lack of a jump shot)Boozer
vs Pau = Advantage Lakers(We need Booz to step up and be the Boozer of playoffs
2 years ago to have a chance here in this series)Okur vs Bynum =
Lakers (With a healthy Okur it might be close, with the Allstar Okur I might
even give Utah the advantage, with this years Okur and being injured it has to
be LA) Like with Boozer above we need our bigs to match theres to compete.BenchHarp_AK_Milsap_BK_Korver vs
Odem_VRodmanavic_Brown_walton = Lakers
Without CJ, Jazz lose in 4. Trust me.
Sounds like the Jazz want to spread the stench of failure around.....
Good luck, Koufus! Injuries have been a tough break Jazz. I would have had more
confidence if the Jazz put it together going into the playoffs. No team in the
West would be favored over the Lakers in the first round. I'm just not seeing
it, but I welcome some signs of life for a full four quarters in at least one of
the first two games in LA. Do you guys got it in you?
With CJ on the bench, the Jazz win in six games. Trust me.
