    but the difference being kanter plays defense, while big al does not.
    so when it's all said and done jefefrson is giving up more points on the other end

Your speculative claims that IF WE TRADE AL, THEN IT'LL BE MORE OF THE SAME WITH DIFFERENT ACTORS are doing nothing to my desire to move Al.

    Questions? ****, I wish I could rep this post.
    the biggets reason to trade al.
    is is incredible boozer like defense.
    and his lack of hustle

    well jaz zwill score without al jefferson
    how does not matter.

    I think everyone is missing the point. When Al was out during the Toronto game and during the Laker game with him, we ran more of the offense through a pick and roll action with Millsap. This created more movement for the whole team (which is harder to guard against). This worked because Millsap has been on his game for the last two games. When Millsap starts to slump again we'll have to go back to old reliable-Al Jefferson.

While he did operate out of the low block a few times (like Al), he mostly operated on that elbow (another score Ty because Sap struggles in the post, but is very good on the elbow.)

    Sap was not passing. He was not contributing to ball movement. He was relentlessly attacking a mismatch (first Jameson, then Hill). He basically took Al's role because of the mismatch and Al was all too happy to watch him motor.

    We mostly killed the Lakers in transition (which is also not ball movement.) But we did get another solid start from Mo, Tinsley played well, and we had tons of cutters. Again, this has nothing to do with post play.

I've been killing this offense all year for the lack of cutters and movement once he gets it. He's certainly not missing cutters because, until recently, there haven't been any. The light bulb seems to have gone off on that front because there is much more fluidity in the last few games.

    Right. Because that's exactly what I said.

    I predict 35 or less wins this season without Big Al. What does everyone else think?
    Man, we are no better than .500 right now with or without big Al, but if he doesnt leave after this year, we will still be the same **** in next years. At least i have hope now that he will go and we will become a better team in future. Or u prefer him to stay then we make playoffs and get our ass kicked in first round for couple more years?
