    This injury sounds serious. I was checking the DLeague to see who are their leading assist people and most are down from NBA teams as "development players." I did notice that Garrett Temple is on Reno's roster and has spent time with San Antonio and the new GM might be familar with him. It said he is trying to remake himself as a PG. I also noticed the same for Coby Karl. Both have decent assist numbers.

    I stated before that I didn't want to tank, still don't like 'tanking', but an injury to Mo kind of changes things. Mo said it felt like the same as the injury he had 2008(?) that required surgery. If he misses the year for injury it is time to play the kids, trade Al, Foye, and Milsap. Fans will still buy tickets to watch the kids play. No need to call it tanking--call it evaluating the last three years of draft picks.
    Virtue lies in the struggle, not in the prize.

    According to an article I came upon, the Jazz have been quietly shopping Al and Paul. Sorry, I didn't copy the link, it was late and I had other things to do. No surprises, but the injury to Mo may hasten a deal. Then again, if a PG isn't picked up soon, the next stretch of games could set the Jazz back just enough to eventually miss the playoffs.

    I have been hearing about a possible deal of Al and Paul for Pau Gasol. I don't think if Mo goes down with a season ending injury, that that means the Jazz will miss the playoffs for sure.
    They're now 5-1 with Jamaal Tinsley as the starting point guard, and he's starting to prove that he can hit the wide open 3 and jumper.
    I also don't know why everyone thinks Earl Watson is so bad. He creates many positives on the floor without scoring.

    I'd do Al/Sap for Gasol. Running the Corbin offense through Gasol would do just as much good as having a real PG.

    Can you imagine how good the Lakers could be though? The Al Jefferson/Kobe Bryant tandem would probably kill us every time.

    If Howard is anywhere near as injured as his yearlong tantrum would suggest, they need Al real bad.

    Hmm, forgot about Quinn, but I liked him too. The problem is that the team is right at 15 right now so they would have to hasten the Raja thing. As much as I don't like it, we do still have 2 'point guards' in Tinsly and Watson, but they are definitely a liability on offence. Even with that I'd like to give Quinn a chance.

    If the Jazz will get Gasol for Al, how about this trade? Jazz should also get a draft pick from either team for facilitating this deal.
    Lakers need to get rid of Gasol AND get support players.
    Bulls just want to get rid of Boozer.
    Jazz will also get rid of Bell and get a project PG at a very low price.

    ?? Just noticed that Burks is a PG on this trade machine!!??

    I like Mo more or less (though I hate his shot selection a lot and hate the fact he's such an out of control dribbler for a PG) but I can't be the only one who doesn't think this is some sort of disaster. I actually like how Tinsley runs the offense the best out of anyone.
