UGLI is one of the only posters with the creative energy, disruptive personality and intellect to also be George.
Calling out Dutch for supposedly liking Al and then posting as both characters in the same time-frame was the giveaway.

After listening to Lockes interview Dennis I think Jefferson says and Millsap goes. And why does everyone want Calderon if we could have a chance at Lowery ? The way Calderon is playing they might just keep him ? Millsap burks g.s. pick for barngani lowery 2nd rounder ? More 3 pt shooting to open up the middle for al , favors and kanter
Bargs and lowery both kinda suck.... golden state pick is better than a 2nd rounder.... millsap is a pretty good player, and burks has alot of potential and is only 21 years old i think.

Please ship off Jefferson. My fandom is being tested lately. I cannot take Al on this team for several reasons which I have talked about time and time again over the last two and a half seasons. Please ship off Jefferson.
Cy is a Baker, he doesn't work fast food. Don't make that mistake, he doesn't like it.
I'm fine keeping Millsap. What I'm not fine with is the thought that if we lose Millsap then by default we have to keep Al. I don't know what some people's expectation is with Al. I guarantee that, if resigned, he will start every single game on that contract. Somehow we assume that at some point he'd come off the bench. Not only would it not work, it would never happen.

MIllsap and kanter bring way much more to the table when it comes to a team game

If we keep big AL, than Millsap must go. Kanter must get 30+ minutes for us to go deep in the playoffs. Remember playoffs is all about defense.
If you can get Al for 8 million and not more, and he is willing to come off the bench, then keep him. He is the perfect "instant offense" bench player. You want 1-2 players on the bench that can create for themselves and the rest defensive players to hold leads. Al and Burks are those players. You put three defensive players around them and they are the best bench in the league. Three good defenders, and then on offense throw it in to Al, he holds it for 15 secs, if he can't get a shot off, out to Burks so he can get to the FT line.
If Al wants more, or wants to start, see ya.
I agree 100%. I'd love to see him come off of the bench and work with the second unit, especially if the second unit has some good defenders to help him. Kanter and favors need to start. If Jefferson can accept this role then cool, if not lets trade him

This is why some of the ill-conceived Team USAs and other 'super teams' where it's assumed that you can make an amalgamation of talented players and simply plug them into new roles and be successful. That's what we're assuming we'll do with Al. We won't get get the same type/rate of production. The option is quite simply between A. keep Al and have him be the focal-point of our offense or B. let him go. It's that easy. There really isn't any real-world middle ground.
