Sneaky Jimmy, are you insane? Evans wouldn't make any other roster in the
NBA. This was the only game he hit anything other than a slam dunk, and he is
too thin to defend. AK was and still is a much better ball handler, passer,
defender, and shooter. Evans should be playing in the D league, and we should
have someone that demands minutes other than a few highlight plays.
@Dustinyes...but dont they need the minutes to improve?...i'd
rather start them and lose...than bench them and lose...its better for them to
get the exposure of starting minutes...the key here is the future...not
tomorrow...it will take awhile...and yes they wont probably win 10 straight
games...the difference is...their confidence and chemistry playing along with
each other...against top tiered players...is key...they could feed off from
that...and giving them the confidence of a starting role...is good for their
morale...meaning they know that the team is committed to them in the long run
Playing one game as a starter proves very little. We underestimate how
difficult it is to put up that kind of energy every game. Al and Milsap have
proven they can do it. Favors and Kanter have not. Jeremy Evans if fun to
watch, but comparing him to Kirilenko is insulting to the Russian. I think
Milsap is worth keeping at under $10 million. If Jefferson wants more money
next season, we should let him go, and take our chances with the young guys.
@scalmani have to agree with you...AK is better overall...but Jeremy
Evans is a leaper but still did a great job...if Al and Paul comes back...i am
afraid...we might go back to losing...and the development of our core 4 will get
stumped...Corbin doesnt really reward you with playing time even after you got a
20-20 performance...if al is back next game...look at the diminished minutes of
@Sneaky JimmyI like Evans but whoa man...better than Kirilenko? Better
leaper and rebounder, yes. But Kirilenko's free lance defensive ability
along with his proficiency as a passer were all-star caliber. Good to see Jeremy
getting some meaningful minutes and playing well, though.
@Sneaky Jimmy,You said it! 14 points 8 rebounds and some blocks
after DMP's most of the season! Kanter also is amazing. He has AMAZING
footwork, and stellar defense. He's improved 100% over last year. Great
Kanter will be great for the Jazz. His humility and hard work are blessing his
career and his life. He is built for the job, and as the Boy Scout Oath goes, he
is "physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight". We will
see good things from our youthful, talented players who are on the bench and
carrying much credit for what we are achieving.
Jeremy Evans needs to play more. he brings a completely different dynamic when
he is in the game. Similar to a young Kirelenko but longer and better.
