    UGLI is one of the only posters with the creative energy, disruptive personality and intellect to also be George.

    Calling out Dutch for supposedly liking Al and then posting as both characters in the same time-frame was the giveaway.

    Why is there this assumption that we have to keep one of them? When the time came that Karl left it was appropriate that we moved forward. Still, there were many that thought we should keep him just because. And this ain't Karl Malone, folks.

    After listening to Lockes interview Dennis I think Jefferson says and Millsap goes. And why does everyone want Calderon if we could have a chance at Lowery ? The way Calderon is playing they might just keep him ? Millsap burks g.s. pick for barngani lowery 2nd rounder ? More 3 pt shooting to open up the middle for al , favors and kanter

    Bargs and lowery both kinda suck.... golden state pick is better than a 2nd rounder.... millsap is a pretty good player, and burks has alot of potential and is only 21 years old i think.

    No thanks to your trade idea

    Welcome aboard Snyder, Exum and Hood. Here is to hoping this season is more entertaining than the last 3.

    Please ship off Jefferson. My fandom is being tested lately. I cannot take Al on this team for several reasons which I have talked about time and time again over the last two and a half seasons. Please ship off Jefferson.

You have to balls to say that when you pulled Alec after 16 minutes against LAC and Kanter got 19 minutes toinght?

    I'm fine keeping Millsap. What I'm not fine with is the thought that if we lose Millsap then by default we have to keep Al. I don't know what some people's expectation is with Al. I guarantee that, if resigned, he will start every single game on that contract. Somehow we assume that at some point he'd come off the bench. Not only would it not work, it would never happen.

    Also, if we happen to lose Millsap or Jefferson we're going to feel obligated to maintain what we had this year to make sure we didn't "lose" any depth and we'll go out and pick up someone like Elton Brand that will be mindlessly inserted into the starting lineup and play big minutes so we can carry out the same thing next year.

    If we keep big AL, than Millsap must go. Kanter must get 30+ minutes for us to go deep in the playoffs. Remember playoffs is all about defense.

    If you can get Al for 8 million and not more, and he is willing to come off the bench, then keep him. He is the perfect "instant offense" bench player. You want 1-2 players on the bench that can create for themselves and the rest defensive players to hold leads. Al and Burks are those players. You put three defensive players around them and they are the best bench in the league. Three good defenders, and then on offense throw it in to Al, he holds it for 15 secs, if he can't get a shot off, out to Burks so he can get to the FT line.

    If Al wants more, or wants to start, see ya.

    I agree 100%. I'd love to see him come off of the bench and work with the second unit, especially if the second unit has some good defenders to help him. Kanter and favors need to start. If Jefferson can accept this role then cool, if not lets trade him

    Al Jefferson's role is pretty black and white. His strength is being 'the guy'. Either he's you're main offensive guy and you pound the ball through him or he's not. He's not an accessory piece. He's not someone who pops off the bench for instant offense. This is why some of the ill-conceived Team USAs and other 'super teams' where it's assumed that you can make an amalgamation of talented players and simply plug them into new roles and be successful. That's what we're assuming we'll do with Al. We won't get get the same type/rate of production. The option is quite simply between A. keep Al and have him be the focal-point of our offense or B. let him go. It's that easy. There really isn't any real-world middle ground.
