    What we've always known is that Sap and Big Al should never play big minutes together.

    Now we know that Sap is not a huge building block we can build around. Even if he turns it around this year, and he might, he's shown he isn't going to bring it
    for a full season. He wants more thanwhat we offered? No way.

    Move him to the bench, if he thrives offer him the same deal. If he pouts, and want more time/money show him the door.

    This organization likes to define itself as consistent, despite the adversity and diversity of the past few years (we'll say from the time of LHM's passing). There is only one player that can legitimately say he lives up to that model.

    This is Millsap's franchise.

    If the organization wants to take a quantum leap, and there is no place for Paul, then I'd like to see a single sign we are going some place better. One. Anything. I've been waiting at least 1.5 years.

    You look at Millsap's numbers, and he's basically the same player the last three years. Statistical variation well within standard.

    Under Corbin, his efficiency has diminished while his usage rate remained the same as a starter (half a year under Sloan).

    Millsap is getting more post isolations and less P&R and cut opportunities. Had a man sealed once earlier this year with an easy layup and never got the ball and was quite demonstrative for Millsap.

    I don't think Millsap is the problem. Or at least, he's the least of them.

    Just took a look. Millsap has played 80% of his minutes with Jefferson this year. Jazz have been much better overall during Millsap's other 20% of minutes played.

    Had to do the calculations myself since there's no direct link. But, I just noticed basketball reference only puts up the 20 most played lineups, so I can only account for 838 minutes and 22 seconds of his 964 minutes played

    In those top 20 played lineups of which Millsap has played 838 minutes and 22 seconds of his 964, 774 minutes and 18 seconds have been played with Jefferson on the floor. The top 12 most played lineups all have Jefferson on the floor with him. Of those 12, 4 have positive points per 100 possessions, and 8 have negative points per 100 possessions. He has two more in the top 20 with Jefferson. One is positive, and one is even. So we'll say 5-8-1. Of the six he hasn't played with Jefferson in the top 20, 5 are positive and 1 is negative, for a 5-1. Of note, the most Millsap has played with a five man roster that didn't include Jefferson was 12 minutes and 47 seconds.

    Curious why you wouldn't take my word for it since I'm not a pull out of ass type of guy.

    Here's the link if you want to have fun looking at net possessions and such.

    Probably not the right thread to put this thought in but it's where I was reading when it came to me so here goes. Al has to be traded ASAP (I know it's revolutionary huh). My reasoning is actually not due to games though. We all believe the future of the Jazz are the young guys. Do we really want our young guys practicing with Jefferson? We all have our complaints about Al, well guess what, he's a team leader and mentor if you listen to Harp and Locke. That means he's passing on all his bad habbits that we all love to hate in every practice. So we could all get our wish and the Jazz not re up Al but because he was such a good mentor we get 5 more years of Kanter trying to play like Al.

    My reasoning for trading Al now is because of the upcoming schedule for the Jazz. They a about top embark on the easier portion of the schedule with a lot of home game. Now is a perfect time to get the young guys confidence up by playing in front of the home crowd. It might be extremely beneficial to their development.
