    Jazz fans should be ecstatic about Big Al going to Charlotte. We're all aboard the tanking train, and one of our biggest competitors for one of the worst records in the league was bound to be Charlotte. Now with Big Al and another year of development for their young guys and the drafting of Zeller, the Bobcats will be improved enough to be a late-lottery team potentially. Plus, while he was never going to take us to the promised land, I think Al was generally liked by Jazz fans and we can all be happy to see him go somewhere where he'll be valued and well-paid. It'll be interesting to see how we compare with Philly, Phoenix, and Orlando in seeing if we can land our first ever #1 pick, or at least in the top 5
