    Why Pau Gasol is on that list?

    Not surprised this article gets virtually zero play on JF.

    I thought this was a particularly relevant article to the future of our team. But, there cannot be a future until Al Jefferson is destroyed, right?

    a jefferson loss could be nullified on offense by instituting a offensive system.

    i still think "defensive gain" >>> "potential offensive loss"

    al Jefferson is a nice guy of the court.
    problem is he also takes the niceness with him once the game starts.

    i wish him al the best although i dont have to cus he is a multi millionaire.
    i wish him all the best.
    but i love the jazz and he needs to go.

    What I took from that as far as our team is concerned is that we need another alpha dog to pair with Al, or possibly pull him off the bench to maximize his talents. Obviously packaging him with other assets for a better player would be good too.

    With Al gone more shots for Favors and Kanter possibly matching ALS output.

    I would LOVE to have Al resign with the Jazz...






    For 8 million a year and a role coming off the bench. Other than that, I say, "no thanks."

    That is not a bad idea, but no way he would agree.

    Remember last season when Al Jefferson missed a few games and we won just about every one of them, with little drop off offensively?

    Al Jefferson is a great individual offensive player, but he does not make his teammates better offensively (which seems to be the premise of this topic). Hell, look at what happened to Hayward when he got to come off the bench.
