    I do not know his status right now if he's ready to play for some min and can still shoot from downtown but guy is classy. As i know, he refused the Minnesota's and Boston's veteran minimum offers. If somehow Corbin manages to play Kanter and Favors and they can show themselves, may be in february he can come to Utah as 4th big man and play 10 min after Big Al's gone.

    It's his son's pic in jazz jersey. https://instagram.com/p/RqOEjMPEHd/

    I love Memo too.

    Don't want him back on the team, though. Put a fork in him, he's done.

    I would be down with this for sure. I'd trade Big Al for Okur all day!

    Funny, I was just watching the d-will, booz, memo team and thinking how much fun that team was to watch. (even with booz's defensive inefficiencies)

    Well after Obama was elected, it became apparent you don't have to be born in this country to become president anymore.
    So..... Okur for president!

    Man, i watched the houston series in the playoffs yesterday and thought that team would do more and more. Also, it's sad to see AK47 in minnesota. Good and lovely days will always be remembered.

    He looks like he hung up his boots already. While looking at his twitter you`re getting the impression that he stops by at day care centre, more than the basketball court.
    I wish to see him on a Jazz uniform again though.

    I really like Memo, AK, and Jarron Collins but I don't want them back on the team.
    It's the same way I feel about Al. He's a great guy, but he's just good enough most of the time to make this an awkward transition.
    Give me the pain, the losses and the new guys. The pain of the losses with the Vets just doesn't have a silver lining.

    Ok, I don't really like Collins, I just added him in. But I don't dislike him.

    False. Memo is a gimp, Boozer was a net negative and Deron is a selfish chucker. Big Al is where it's at!

    I miss Boozer.
    I miss Smiles.
    I miss D-Shawn.
    I miss Amechi.
    I miss Kyle Karver.
    I miss Tree.
    I miss cancers and generally useless past Jazz-nitwits.

    You need a good facilitator for such fun OFFENSE which we had , D-wil. On the other hand, Dwill only contributed to defense if he wasnt moody and Memo-Boozer is the worst defensive big man duo ever. Kanter-Favors is more than fine, if we surround them with good facilitators, (one is hayward, but PG positions really sucks after D-will left)

    I just don't understand why he wanted so much money. I know he wanted to stay in US for his kids but then why not play for a min contract? I think he's done with Basketball in his mind.

    If I made that much money like him, I wouldn't risk injury for less money. It's better to live a healthy life than earning some bucks at some point.

    I respect his decision of course but when you say "I love basketball, it's my life" everytime and everywhere, I'd expect you to play it as much as you can. Heck, I know a min contract may not be that meaningful for a multi-millionaire but man it still is a lot of money too.

    Anyway, I wish him the best, because it's always been unjust that the guy has never been liked as much as Hedo in Turkey. The NT issues that were not his fault at all made him look as the bad guy all the time.

    I remember a couple of years Memo just rejected NT just for having a vacation. This hasn't helped to improve his reputation.

    Wasn't it after they offended the guy and made him out as a traitor? And as far as I know, there were a lot of things going on behind the curtain. I remember Memo said clearly that there were people who don't want him on the NT.

    Not to mention of his chronic back problems btw. He used to do special workouts even in his honeymoon and his all vacations(with his trainer!), just to maintain his health of his back.
