    Al was always a class act while he was in Utah. I wish him the best in the future.

    Hopefully Jefferson can help them out, at least turn them into mehcats rather than lolcats.

    Good to hear there was absolutely no waffling by the Jazz over the decision to let Jefferson walk.

    Also in the article: news on Tyrus Thomas.

    July 2010 - Bobcats sign Thomas to a $40M/5 yr deal.
    July 2013 - Bobcats amnesty Thomas.

    No wonder Charlotte is a joke of a franchise!

    That's a big thing, that a lot of people don't seem to aknowlege here. Sure everyone had different problems with his game, and how much the offense depended on him, but no one can honestly say he didn't enjoy being in Utah from the day he arrived to the day he left.

    I hope all excels in Charlotte. In fact, I hope he carries the bobcats all the way to mediocrity.

    Al Jefferson also thought Johnny Flynn was going to be a star. Let's hope this prognostication is a little more accurate. But he is a good guy, that's for sure.

    I don't think any of us here had any problems with Al the person. He seems like a really great guy and a good teammate.
    I hope he does great in Charlotte.

    Not the biggest fan of Big Al's game (or rather, the way everything moved through him to the hoop), but he was always a nice guy, happy to be here, a professional. He certainly did help us win some games, but obviously understood the Jazz were going another direction and understands that. Thanks, Al.

    It's called taking the high road. Even if he doesn't really believe it he scores point by just saying it.

    I really like the way Jefferson handles himself off of the court. He's a nice guy and a true professional.

    exactly, not one person/poster has a problem with Al the person or Al the teammate.

    people hated to different degree his lack of defense(whether by lazyness or lack of defensive skill)
    and the way corbin used him in alfense.


    he got a great payday i am happy for him.

    Classy quotes by Al. Here's hoping Jazz fans don't boo him on his return trip in a Bobcat Uni.
