Wow I had no idea Gordon was shooting 42% until I looked it up today. That is not good... terrible in fact.
Let me see do I choose:
Marvin Williams and his chance to reinvent himself in a new town; or
Paul Milsap and his turning down the Jazz's maximum extension offer and then being too pedestrian too many times; or
Gordon Haywar the new face of the franchise and his 2.6 rebounds per game, or
Derrick, third year in the League and I still haven't figured out a post move because I spent my summer playing pick games with an 6-4 NBA never was, Favors.
I choose Favors, but it is close.
X LIKE XENOPUS.
Marv. I thought he might be a little better in a new system. Guy is barely worth playing. Carroll is a better player.

Dennis Lindsey. Nothing else is really out of the ordinary. Didn't expect much from Lindsey, and have to be honest that I haven't heard him specifically make statements, but at least from what I gather he's hitched to the "Big Al's the guy" wagon. Maybe this is way off, but I can't think of anyone I had expectations of this season that have fallen below what was anticipated. If Lindsey really is as dense as the rest of the organization seems to be with the direction we're headed then that is a serious disappointment.
Gordon Haywad is 91st in the league in TS%. Kanter 52nd, Foye 63rd. Jefferson's in a four way tie for 172nd.
I vote Jefferson. Guy took a giant duke on every sign of improving or even being willing to. Contract death can't come soon enough. It's gotten to the point where if Jefferson is re-signed at all then I will find another team to root for. I don't care if he takes the vet minimum, I don't want to watch Al Jefferson.
And yes, this is a threat to the Jazz organization because they read all my posts for game insight.
I was hoping Marvin would be a little better this year than he was in Atlanta. Instead he's been a little worse.
I thought Millsap would have a better year - but that's only because he's playing for a contract.
That's about it overall though - everyone else has performed pretty much how I thought they would given the minutes they get.. A few have done better that expected (Foye, Carroll)
I voted Favors. I expected much more out of him, limited time or not.
Burks followed close by Favors.
Alec hasn't improved anything since last season other than staying a little bit more often under control.
Favors is basically the same player with improved FT which gives him an edge.
Didn't expect much more than they deliver from the vets. MaWill hits occasional three and provides solid defense so not much to complain about if you didn't buy into usual silly season front office hype.
To a certain extent, I agree with zbone. I'm disappointed by the youngsters as I expected much more of a jump by Favors, Kanter and Burks. There's been progress, but not a lot. But I have to remember that Favors and Kanter were incredibly raw entering the league. And Burks is being asked to become more of a playmaker/PG. I think all 3 will be solid; I had just hoped for more from all of them at this point.
