When I wrote this he was TOP 5 BIG-MAN in the league, right now he is the best. And their is no doubt about it...
This, (too me) is a hilarious line. He is not one dimensional he is one dementional. Yes Al was demented about getting his points at the cost of the entire team standing and watching and his defense was seldom seen, but he is not a bad guy at all. He has this one great talent (footwork) and he used it almost every time he touched the ball. As Hot Rod used to say "right string, wrong yo-yo'.he is a one dementional player.
Drafts just leave me cold.
On the other hand, a player cannot be considered the top big man in the league (as the op suggested) when for most of your career you have been a lousy defender and decent at best.
Here's what's up: The Bobcats weren't good, guys. The Bobcats got him with the sole purpose of getting okay percentage shots from low percentage situations.
But Al's nice. And maybe he's a little better.
Eenie-Meenie has badgered me and the mods about removing something he actually said because he's clearly completely sane.
I'm really cool if someone posts about an ex-player and is related to the Jazz in some way, like D-Will talking about how he misses salt lake and his time here.
I just don't get it if someone start opening old threads about players who are not relevant to the team anymore, like those annoying Devin Harris threads. Just because someone played for us a couple of years doesn't mean we have to follow his career and open new threads about him, especially when he is currently playing for another team.
If you really want to talk about your favorite player (and not just troll), there are other forums where you'll find people who share your same interests and want to discuss about that player and his current team. Remember this is the Jazz forum, not General NBA or General Discussion.
