    How many times have they given up 130 points?
    Answer: zero times in regulation-length games.
    The Jazz scored 140 on them in triple OT earlier this year.

    It sounds a little dumb to me, but I hear it ALL the time, so I don't just discount it as patently false.
    If players don't move, that's on Ty and the players. If they were constantly moving, cutting, and not getting the ball because Al was always in superstar mode, that would be different. But that's not what's happening.

    So I should be deferring to the genius of a WoW acolyte who thinks basketball is a logarithm that can be figured out on an abacus?

    Cool. Nice to hear an opposing view to that of the masses.

    I'll say I disagree with you but with the qualifier that I'm sure you breakdown the games far more than I do .. I watch them in more game-mode than analysis-mode.

    I actually expect this. It's play design. Give the ball to AJ and get the hell out of his way/prepare to defend his misses. The Jazz offense went stagnant quite a few times when Corbin ran this through Kanter. Millsap looked somewhat frustrated by it at one time (in the 3rd IIRC), although I don't care to buy much into his body language here.

    The difference I see between fans and reality, and one reason I defend Jefferson so adamantly, is the Jazz are going to win far fewer games without Jefferson even though the games will be much more exciting to watch. They'll also be highly frustrating at times when the team has zero offensive cohesion and no go-to players to stop scoring droughts.

    Not sure who you're referring to, but no, you shouldn't defer to that guy. You might want to be critical of your own conclusions from time to time, and turn to whatever data is available to form your opinions. FWIW, my opinion about Al has changed quite a bit over the last year+, and you're one of the biggest reasons why (your understanding of the game exceeds mine by a fair bit).

    Would you prefer to be a fan of a boring, perpetually mediocre team or an exciting team that may win the lottery at some point?

    I, HeavenHarris, hereby pledge to my fellow JFC'rs that I will no longer give out neg-reps. All it does is cause negative things, like fights, drama, bitching, ill will, bad feelings, etc.
    Love, not hate, is the answer bros and moes.

    LOL Lol breaks his pledge 5 days later hahahaha

    This. There's no right way or wrong way .. but we know what we have with Al and he's not going to get better from here. I'd still rather watch more exciting basketball, watch the young guys progress ON the court, get another piece out of the lottery, let Al expire, add a piece from FA (maybe) and further pave the way to a perhaps vastly improved team. Again, I'd be willing to risk more losses to get there ... even if it meant that along with that risk means we never actually get any better.

    That's only one point of view, but it is mine.

    I'm poking fun at your affinity for Berri, WoW obviously being his Wages of Wins. As for being critical of my own conclusions, I've done a public 180 on Carroll and I think I'm up to 3 nice posts in a row on Mo Williams. As far as Al goes, I've always said the same things about him -- good and bad -- and nothing he's done this season has really changed the assessment on who he is. It's just that who he is is frequently not appreciated, and the perceived benefits of his absence are greatly overstated.

    It's settled. I'm naming my junk Big Al.

    It's big, great on offense, but doesn't defend well.
    Rarely boxes out .. double dribbles, accused of palming .. hook shots with either hand.
    Hard time penetrating, but once inside rarely passes out.
    Loves a great double team.

    This thread is almost complete. The only thing left is a little tank, girls.

    Fair enough. I don't really have an affinity for Berri or WoW though; the only time I've mentioned either was the other day, quoting from the wikipedia entry on PER.
