    Boozer is getting paid 47 mil this season through the next two. Hard to imagine some of you would rather take that on than watch AJ another day, but there it is right in front of me.

    "I'm a moron for thinking the Browns could even sniff 10 wins in a division where the other three teams (two of whom almost always make the playoffs) made the post-season last year. Gyp Rosetti's thee God of football knowledge." - Brown Notes

    at least the team offense flowed much better with booz. he realized that the jazz were more dangerous when the ball was moving, so it didn't stick to his hands for half the shot clock.

    jefferson is clearly better as an on-ball post defender. both guys are laughable at help D.

    boozer was a better passer out of the post. also better at getting hurt.
    check out the jazzbros.com blog for more on the jazz.

    Don't forget that since Al has been here he had played almost every game for us.

    Boozer on the other hand was missing games left, right and center. What I don't like about Boozer is he's not a real team player. Booze only cares about 1 thing and it's Booze.Inc

    The one thing that sticks out about both of them is that they make a lot of money to play one side of the court. Boozer is significantly better at jump shots, using the left hand, interior passing, rebounding anything that touches his hands, and is generally more explosive, whatever that's worth. Jefferson is the best pump fake artist in the history of b-ball, and compliments that with a nice array of short push shots, spin moves, and up and under moves, so I give him the edge as a post up player. Boozer is light years ahead of AL in passing and transition offense. Al has one speed, slow. Both make decent teammates from the standpoint of optimism, and vocally supportive of teammates. Both players are historically bad on help defense, and neither one consistently challenges shots, but I'm giving the overall edge to Jefferson defensively. SO, if I had to choose today, I'd pick Jefferson because he makes less, and comes off the books in 4 months. Then, I'd play Favors 35 minutes a game, and give Al scraps until he learned to give a %# on helping his team on defense. Honestly, for Corbin, and because of Utah's personnel, I believe our record with Boozer instead of Jefferson would be 10+ wins better. In my opinion, losing Jefferson immediately makes Utah better because of simple addition by subtraction. If somehow Brandy Foye could be gone, too, even Corbin wouldn't be able to prevent the Jazz from winning better than 50% of their games. I imagine a world where Burks, Hayward, Favors, Millsap, and Tinsley (gasp), hey he's way better than Earl Wasting (course, so am I), and I hope someday that dream becomes a reality, with or without Ty in it ( I prefer without).

    Please, for the sake of everyone here, learn how to use spaces and paragraphs. I almost had to get my reading glasses out to read your post.

    Otherwise there's some good stuff in there.

    I would rather have Jefferson over Boozer. Though this question is like asking 'Who would you rather marry - Susan Boyle or Rosanne Barr?'

    And has sucked in almost all of them. Cool.

    Do you know what "net" means?

    ****ing THANK YOU. I love how people have seemed to forget that Sloan was around when Jefferson came here (and Al completely botched the sets). I guess it's because Sloan bounced shortly after (and that it was totally a complete and utter coincidence).

    You read that? Props to you.
    Welcome aboard Snyder, Exum and Hood. Here is to hoping this season is more entertaining than the last 3.

    I'd rather not have either. But if the money were the same I'd take Boozer. Mostly because not even Corbin could be stupid enough to put Boozer and Millsap on the floor together at PF and C. At least for long periods of time.

    If I take the contracts into concideration I'd take AL. And it's not even close.

    You've got to give him time though to acclimatize to our system.

    But yes I see arguments from both sides. Al has always been here but he hasn't been great.

    Booze plays great while he's here, but he was very much absent for a lot of the games with his self imposed "injuries". Don't forget also, he pulled a similar stunt with the Bulls when he declared himself injured for apparently "tripping over the telephone cord trying to answer the door." Ask Bulls fan - they can't wait til his contract runs out neither.
