@louisiana Jazz manthe only guy that i could think of...that would
produce given the minutes...would be Kanter...but he took an arrow to the
knee...they may not be all-stars yet...but i think they can be...they do have
potential...and it is up to them to work on it...i think they should ask the old
guys some tips...im sure they are open to give these young guys advice...Karl
Malone?...Charles Barkley?...Hakeem Olajuwon?
I feel bad for Jefferson. I remember how so excited he was to leave losing
Minnesota and come play for Sloan and play with Williams. Then that all blew up
and the team just is very average when they could have been pretty good. I hope
they win their next 3 games and get in the playoffs so they at least get to play
with the team a bit more.
I think they should let both Jefferson and Millsap go. Jefferson cannot defend
and when teams clog up the middle, he cannot score. The management needs to give
themselves some cap space so they can get involved in the draft for both this
year and next. Our young players need good, young, athletic players surrounding
them that can defend. Otherwise, we will continue in the same rut with no
movement in the playoff picture.
with millsap and al or millsap or al gone they will not be as good as they are
now. kanter and favors will not be allstars. favors is a good defender not a
great one. kanter is a banger for now. when his knees and shoulders get injured
that will cnange. favors will not score like al might be about the same as
millsap but won't pull the def out like millsap. favors and millsap play
togrther better tha favors and al probly because he plays center with millsap
and they run better. don't think favors and kanter will make up for
al's points . if they get someone that can do what al and millsap do it
will cost the same as al and millsap . millsap will probly get a offer of 10 mil
al 15 mil. i think they will have to keep one or totaly suck next year. it is
also the reason why they are not coming with effert every nighr it was all on
the news they were trying to trade them they have no contract past this year if
they got hurt with no contract ?? i know my main focus not getting hurt
Even though Stan (the Man) Musial died recently, he has been "dead" for
quite a while. He worked for the brewery and Anheuser-Busch and specifically
Augie Busch, of German brewmaster descent. Everyone applauds as I, the work
ethic of MSap. He made great things out of almost nothing. However, the likes of
Malone and Stockton, who walked the same walk as Stanislaw Franciszek Musial
will likely never be seen again. The "used car empire" of the Millers is
similar to the "Bud kingship" of the Busch family. Bud is now Brazilian
with Belgian management. As much as I admire the "hustle" of Paul
Milsap, I have to remark that he does not have the value of a "brain
surgeon" and his value in the "life of the village" has to be seen
within that context.
Milsap is done with Utah. With him well. The Jazz are also done. Favors is ok,
about on par with Ibaka, but they have no one else that is all star potential.
They are going to struggle to make the playoffs for the foreseeable future. The
home court crowd helps a lot and has maybe blinded management to how bad the
team really is.
Love Milsap, but he is undersized for a 4 and slow for a 3 where he would fit
best. The best future lineup.. Kanter/Favors at center for defense and
Jefferson at Power Forward for scoring.
Hey, the Jazz could always give Ostertag a call. I hear he is free and will
probably play for $35000 a year.
I think Stanfunky nailed it. Both Miami and Boston need Milsap but the Celtics
need him just a little bit more! Thanks for your time as a Jazzman Paul but the
grass is Celtic green in Boston. Bostonians, Milsap is coming, the Paul Milsap
No matter what happens, Paul Millsap is a classy player in a league that needs
more like him.It looks like there's a real high probability
that the Jazz will lose both Millsap and Jefferson. Other teams are going to
offer them a lot more than the Jazz are willing to spend.The Jazz
will not repeat the mistake they made with Kirilenko (overspending) and risk
losing Kanter or Favors when their contracts expire.Goodbye Paul and
Al, we will miss you.
@StrikerThese sports articles are posted for the next day's
edition of the Deseret News. They usually appear around 7:30 p.m., but for some
reason this one was posted even earlier than normal.
Let Jefferson go and keep Millsap if he can be had for around the same salary.
Rotate Favors, Kanter and Millsap in that order. Spend the money saved on
getting a real PG. Oh and try and keep Foye around.
Millsap is what he is...great guy, good player, amazing for the team and
community. But he likely will never be an All-Star or a 20-10 guy. However,
placed next to a star player he would be the perfect compliment - so let's
hope Miami or Boston don't pick him up.
I like Millsap. I think he is both a good player and a good guy. I think he can
be a starter for an average team or a good back up for a good team. There is the
quandary though. If Utah wants to become a good team I don't think it can
happen with Millsap and Jefferson as the main cogs in the wheel. Especially when
they will both be demanding bigger salaries next year. It is time to swing the
tide over to the Favors, Kanter front line and see where that leads us. Paul
Millsap, good player, good guy, good-bye.
Uhh.... pretty sure this game is tomorrow (Friday).
