    I like how we rewrote history and decided that the GS Pick= Lillard.

    I don't think anyone is saying that, just saying we were close. More blaming Portland for finally being intelligent. They are on a hot streak of signings and draft picks.

    Matthews
    Batum
    Lillard
    Even Myers Leonard, although maybe not lottery worthy, seems like he will be a serviceable big.

    Though I think Aldridge's contract kind of sucks. He is a jump shooting version of Al, who is slightly more well rounded, but just as ****ty on defense and is worse in clutch situations.

    Good thread mellow. We'll have to see how the Jazz do now that a thread has been made with some effort. I liked the story about Hickson. My prediction is he'll finish the season in Portland, not necessarily to the liking of Portland's management.

    Aldridge is a little soft but unlike Al, is truly elite on offense. Despite being a jump shooter he draws more fouls and, more importantly, has a higher TS%. The indirect benefit is he usually draws the other teams shot blocker away opening it up for all their slashers. His +/- ratings are of superstar caliber level the last three years (+9.6, +11.1, +14.4).

    Truly elite is a little overblown. Him and Jefferson have practically identical per48 stats. The only two things that jump out is that Aldridge gets to the line 1.7 more times, and Jefferson averages 2.8 more rebounds.

    Good post. Aldridge is definitely very very good though.

    He is someone you have to worry about, because, like Al, if he gets hot, he can truly decimate anyone given a 1 on 1 match-up.

    Millsap has been able to have great games against Aldridge in the past, including a 31 and 11 outing last season.

    Given his impressive measurements and mobility for his size, Aldridge should be a much more dominant big man.

    It started with Earl [Watson], Randy [Foye] and Marvin [Williams]Ėthe veteran guys. I thought the young guys did a good job of following their lead getting us off to a good start. - referring to the Jazz/Bobcats game on 3/1/13

    Earl, Randy, and Marvin started the first quarter 0-3, scored a whopping zero points, and finished with a turnover in the first quarter.

    Your head coach of the Jazz ladies and gentlemen.

    Truly elite is overblown, But I think he is a far better player then Big Al. On the season as a whole so far, Aldridge has a +/- of +28, Al jeff is -84. Thats a pretty huge disparity. I know +/- isnt perfect. But the difference is ridiculous.

    I, HeavenHarris, hereby pledge to my fellow JFC'rs that I will no longer give out neg-reps. All it does is cause negative things, like fights, drama, bitching, ill will, bad feelings, etc.
    Love, not hate, is the answer bros and moes.

    I hope Big Al Jefferson plays intense defense on Aldridge and Hickson, totally giving them a cold streak.

    There.
    David Locke: "Because what happens in this league is, people start shooting threes and they get soft and donít want contact and then they just stay out there all the time. Youíre not going to get soft, are you?"

    Enes Kanter: "I kind of live in the paint, man. Come on. I wonít get soft. Donít worry about that."

    4.17.14


    Dave Locke:
    The Jazz PR guy just walked by shaking his head at you.
    What did you do?

    Kanter: I dropped a bomb.

    ~I'm sure it's hell to go to the public bathroom Kanter uses.

    All the bickering aside this should be a very telling, interesting game. If we come out, and play like we should it'll be a great game.
    A good win here makes the Houston loss look more like a hiccup, another bad loss and we may be in trouble going forward.
