    Competitiors find ways to make up where they lack. milsap is quick, he dosent always meet the ball in the air for a block.... but hey guys remember who lead our team in steals last year. sap with 2 a game! he plays d in other ways, he usually gets his boards. he finds was to compinsate for his lack of hight. his heart is in question now, he doesnt seem to be giving it alot of effort.

    Oh, and most importantly, he drives a bad ass white Bentley with red interior.
    I've been trying to rep you for weeks, but I'm too stupid to figure out how this rep **** works. I want you to know I want you inside me.
    Freckle Liiiiiip.

    Except for the fact that no one can score. Millsap is slumping, Gordon is shooting about 20% of late, Carroll's outside shot hardly ever falls, and Tinsley and Watson both have the range of my 8-yr old.

    I agree. As hard as it is to find decent centers, I'd go with a Favors/Kanter combination. Then the Jazz need to go out and pick up a stud PF. Every year, 3-4 good young PF's seem to come into the league. It shouldn't be that hard to find an 18-10 guy. If I were Lindsey/KOC, I'd be shopping Jefferson and Millsap for a young player + a late lottery pick.

I'd be down for trading Jefferson, since he is a liability on defense...but without him who is going to score on a consistent basis? He may be a 'black hole' when he posts up...but he scores almost every time he takes someone to the paint. Sad to say, but I think Sap is going to be traded
    How much of the Jazz have you watched this season? Because the Sap you descibed has not been seen since last season at best. probably since the season before last. He is not a hustle player anymore.
    Welcome aboard Snyder, Exum and Hood. Here is to hoping this season is more entertaining than the last 3.

    You could make a good argument for a strategy focused on using guys like Favors and Kanter to obtain deadly wing players and then pick up players like David West, Kaman, Asik for reasonable money to complement them. These guys are getting bought up for cheap compared to production. Scola for a little over $4mm, Brand for $2.1. Jazz could reasonably acquire Pau Gasol for a couple years to pair with one of these guys. Bozzer on an amnesty would be excellent at only a few million per season. Varejao can be gotten for not too much. He's only putting up 15x15 this year. I'd take Ryan Anderson for $9mm per. Why did Orlando give him away anyway?

    Numberica just negged me for this post. Cool huh. But to answer your question, body language, past comments, the fact that he is not that great about half of the time, the fact that he is an undersized 4 and a too slow 3 who does ok against starters but that should be able to do quite well as a 6th man. Is that enough bud?

    Oh, you mean a bunch of conjecture? Yeah, that's exactly what I thought.
