Actually Lunatic's reference is relevant. Because the way Al's being talked about at a younger age reflects the same way Z-Bo was being talked about until he had a team that maximized his abilities. Good point/

Unless he is advocating that Big Al get traded, as happened to Z-Bo, then I really don't see as how it applies.

I think seeing how Memphis' offense has ball movement regardless of whether or not Z-Bo stops the ball, is a big difference between how we play when Jefferson stops the ball.

On Memphis when Z-Bo stops the ball, players are always cutting and always moving. The thing is Z-Bo doesn't get assist, but this allows him to read the defense, anticipate double teams, and make his work much easier.

Maybe in the short run. In the long run this team would finally be able to discover what they still need when one or both of the inadequate starters we currently have are gone. And maybe even move one of them for the pieces we are missing.

That should just about set us up to lose one or both of them to a huge market with a huge overpriced offer for a still sort of unproven therefore probably not worth it too us offer.

When Big Al has been out over the past two years I've loved the way this team has looked.
Bring it on. Of course we'll lose things. You Big Al apologists always talk in extremes.
Big Al isn't a horrible player, but as our main focus he will never get it done. At least not with our
roster, and coaching staff.
