    ^ True, people are giving their hopes up on Marvin way too soon. Like Hack, per say. Guy seems very professional (minus jailhouse tats), and I could see him playing into being a B-Russ for this team if he gets his game together. I'd love to get Jefferdaughter off this team though, our offense could flourish.

    The way I see it though is that Corbin doesn't want Jefferson gone, because then he'd actually have to coach instead of telling his players to run 100 post plays a game.

    It has nothing to do with his skill set - although his mid-range game, back to basket game and ability to create his own shot are shockingly unrefined for a player with his experience.

    I just don't think Marvin is a very intense guy. He'll fall into good games here and there because he's an elite athlete; but for the most part he's just happy to be a background guy who can still collect his millions.

    I don't dislike the guy but I hope he opts out after this season.

    It is hard being a Jazz fan, I tell ya. Do our own players believe Al Jefferson should be the cornerstone of this offense?

    He has such tremendous talent, but it seems like he has no grit. He is very unselfish to a fault. I think Ty runs very few plays for him and he mostly is a bail out player when nothing else works.

    I like Marvin. He just does his thing. He could always do more, but he hasn't done enough to make me hate him yet.

    I live Marvin, but I think he's criminally under or miss utilized in Corbin's 'system.' Get rid of Big Al, open the offense up, run plays for other players, such as Marvin, and I think he'll do much better.

    The big mystery to me in all this is all the love Corbin's giving Foye. He's this year's Raja Bell. I wouldn't be sad if Foye were shipped off in a trade, but I would be disappointed if we gave up on Marvin so soon without giving him some kind of actual role in the offense, other than to pick up Big Al's leavings.

    After watching him shine in preseason I am dissapointed but not that surprised. He doesn't do anything amazing, ever, but plays good defense on SFs. He has about an even +/- rating nearly every year, which is a lot more than Al and Foye can say.

    he's the best wing defender we have by far. not everybody has to score 15+ to earn their keep.
