    Is there a plan behind all this?

    I'm trying to wrap my head around this, but is it possible that Al and Milsap are playing an undeserved 32+ minutes a night because KOC doesn't want Favors to request a large contract and wants him hidden from the league so he can afford him? And is this why Kanter is getting 12 minutes a night and why Burks is riding the bench?

    I'm going to hold on to this thought when I watch the next time Al gets posted up and stands there for 7 seconds. It'll keep me sane.

    Yep, both Al and Sap are being given their role to protect their value as trade assets.

    So he is not giving them their deserved minutes, thus to give them lesser money than they deserve. I don`t think he is that evil.

    And he doesn`t make long term plans, saving the day satisfies him.

    Since when did a GM divide out minutes.

    The problem is the coach not the GM.

    And the coach is a problem. Favors and Kanter should both be playing more than Jefferson and Millsap.

    That is the conclusion that I am at. We know what Jefferson and Millsap bring to the team and often they are not clearly superior to Favors and Kanter.
    Cy is a Baker, he doesn't work fast food. Don't make that mistake, he doesn't like it.

    I honestly don't understand why Ty doesn't send Millsap to the bench. He could join Hayward as the focal point on offense in the second unit. Millsap and Al in at the same time just doesn't work defensively, and gives the team more diversity. At this point I don't see either getting traded. I was sure one would get traded before the season started, and it didn't happen. Oh well...

    I guess we will have to wait till years end, and hope both Al and Millsap aren't in the plans going forward.

    Because Millsap has already been put on the bench for a few 4th quarters and he pouted. Can't have a vet Pouting that takes Corbin back to his playing days then he feels sorry for them. Corbin has not got the balls to stand up to the vet players. It's been shown on at least 3 occasions now.

    In Utah? Since Jerry left.


    And to the OP--Is there a plan? Yes, first round of playoffs puts the team in the black, everything else is gravy.

    I would have liked to see Kanter guard Zach Randolph when Randolph was steam rolling us last night.
