    Millsap whining again

    Jody Genessy: Asked about being frustrated after not playing in the 4Q, Paul Millsap tersely replied: "What you think? I'll let you answer that." OK: Yes. Twitter @DJJazzyJody
    Seriously Millsap, stfu before you ruin your legacy.

    Uh...why is this a problem? Should the guy shrug his shoulders, passively accepting that he's not playing well enough to warrant 4th quarter minutes? Dude's a competitor, and is probably just as frustrated with his own play as anyone else is.

    I've been saying for the past year that Paul should be the one traded. I'm sure Al would have said the same thing but I believe Paul's doesn't have the team attitude Al has.

    Say we resign Paul (not Al), I don't see him openly accepting to be the 3rd big if Kanter/Favors start to develop 2 years from now. I do see Al willing to such a thing!
    i may quote myself from other treads... sue me!

    I agree. Paul's answer to the question didn't bother me at all.
    "Giving to the poor is an essential part of Christian morality. I do not believe one can settle how much we ought to give. Im afraid the only safe rule is to give more than we can spare... If our charities do not at all pinch or hamper us, I should say they are too small. There ought to be things that wed like to do but cannot do because our charitable expenditure excludes them." --C.S. Lewis

    I don't disagree with you guys, but at the same time, we got after Boozer for the same thing, a while back when he finally got back from a long injury, he wasn't playing in the 4th either, and we got all over him for saying he was a "starter". So as I do understand his reaction, he might want to suck it up and at least sound like a team player. Also have the feeling that if Al wasn't playing in the 4th and he had the same comments we'd be all in his grill about it like we were with Boozer.

    Maybe he's sick of answering stupid-obvious questions.
    You know squat. You know less than squat. You and Squat could go to the movies and Squat could wear an "I'm with Stupid" t-shirt!

    Mods, please change the title to "Is Millsap whining again?" so GVC will stop whining.

    Regardless of whether he meant anything or not, Sap should give more pc answers to these kinds of questions and take his concerns to management the right way.

    I was much more troubled by this quote from him on April 17th, 2011:

    "I like to get down there and get physical. I like to get down there and try to show my strength, try to be a macho man," Millsap said. "It's fun down there to actually go up against a 7-footer and you know you're undersized and you know people are telling you that you can't guard this guy, you can't do that.

    "I take it as a challenge."
    Right or wrong that sounded as ME talk instead of US talk in my point of view.

    How is what Millsap said the same as what Boozer said?

    It's easy to see what he meant, and it sounds a lot like Boozer.

    Now you resort to name calling because he's right and there is no good argument to this.

    It's a joke. Relax.

    And no, the two statements aren't at all the same. One guy flatly stated that he's a starter, the other stated that he's frustrated he's not playing during crunch time. Paul should be frustrated; he's playing poorly, and watching from the bench as his team loses close games. Boozer's statement was made while he was injured, his replacement was playing well, and the team was doing ok without him.

    Frustration (Millsap) does not imply a sense of entitlement (Boozer). Wake the **** up.

    his answer didn't bother me... but i will admit that i knew as soon as i read it that it would bother some people.

    the dude's a competitor, and he has carried the jazz on his back far more than anybody on this team other than al. what's more, he has frequently shown a willingness to do the less glamorous things like defend and set screens. so i can imagine the guy doesn't like feeling even further marginalized despite the fact that he has better PPP stats AND better defense than the guy who almost automatically plays more minutes than him every single night.

    but fwiw (and i hope this isn't just wishful thinking) - the fact that paul's on the shelf late and al is in there playing probably doesn't mean paul's on the trade block. if the jazz were really trying to dangle paul right now, they wouldn't be lowering his value intentionally by sitting him late so that al jefferson could use even MORE of the team's late-game possessions. his sitting probably means nothing, but if it means anything, it's that al is the guy whose value they're trying to protect.
