    Who wouldn't look like an all star playing against Al. Other than Dwight Howard.

    Juts a few weeks ago bunch of posters here said that Kanter is 100x better then Koufos, that Kosta sucks, that he avoids physical contacts, yada, yada....Obviously none of them watched any games lately so maybe today was an eye opener for some.
    Kanter had arguably best game of the season and yet Koufos played even better.

    IF Koufos is better:

    1) I said trading him was a dumb move and that he was bungled here
    2) He's much, much more experienced at this point than Kanter
    3) He was guarded by Slow Al tonight
    4) He plays on a good team, and as such...
    5) Kanter was one of the three best players for the Jazz tonight and his line is at the same level as Koufos' (who himself had an exceptional night)
    6) THAT DOESN'T MEAN HE WILL CONTINUE TO BE

    3. hm... Kanter was guarded by slow Mozgov coming of injury... not sure who is better defender him or big AL.
    4. Half of posters here thinks Jazz are better team and as such...
    5. Close but Koufos was better.
    6. yup, Kanter may turn better but as of today Kosta is better.

    This is Kosta┬┤s fifth season in this League and he plays like crap on most of his games , although this Guy is getting his minutes to develop. If Kanter could get playing time like that, he would turn into a double-double Mashine. Kanter is just nervous, because he knows that, after every mistake he can find his ass on the bench.

    And whats youre Problem with Kanter, dude ? The only thing Kanter needs is playing time, to turn into a real Force in oure future.

    Of course Koufos played better. He had Al guarding him. A prime David Robinson would have obliterated Wilt's single scoring game record against Al tonight.

    Koufos is not better than Kanter. He played more and actually has a competent coach.


    We really need to fire Corbin before he ruins our young players.

    This.
    That`s exactly what makes the difference. Dumb Corbin not just limited his minutes last year also limited the way he plays. He didn`t even shoot one 15 or 17 footer for gods sake, now look how comfortably and consistently he hits it. And its not a new thing.. Everyone was shouting at the top of their voice at the draft combine; "this dude got long range!" Corbin is just so dumb to see this and have no vision beside getting a playoff ticket that valid for just 4 or 5 (if we`re lucky) games.

    I thought it was dumb trading Koufos because he was 19 years old when the Jazz drafted him. Again Koufos is another example of playing vets over young guys and not developing our young guys. I fear this is going to happen to Burks (another 19 year) and possibly Kanter.

    Koufos had a very good game and is a solid player. No he isn't great but he plays within the system and plays hard. After last night's game Jefferson should not be getting big minutes. I can assure you that Kanter and Favors are giving the veteran benefit of the doubt will out produce both Millsap and AJ. Right now both Favors and Kanter are looking over their shoulders seeing when they are going to be taken out. Favors was a beast on defense last night and should have stayed in the game and AJ should have sat his lazy butt on the bench.

    Koufos has been in the league how long and played how many more minutes than Kanter last night. I would have just liked it if the Jazz had kept Koufos and developed him and lost enough games to get a higher draft pick (Lillard and someone else) then sign AJ who fills up stats at the expense of his team.

    Umm Kosta didn't take a shot more than 5 feet away from the hoop.

    Kanter made multiple mid-range jumpers and was getting his rebounds against Mozgov, Faried, Koufos and McGee.

    Koufos played well but pretending they have similar skill sets is just silly.

    Good point there. Example number 1: Alec Burks. He should be coached up now to where he actually looks better in year 2, not like he has taken 3 steps backward.

    Another: continuing to start Sapperson with their league-leading bad interior D, when a stud defender like Favors is available. (But, but, but, those guys helped the Jazz outscore the Spurs in the 3q the other night donchya know (after allowing a 19 point lead)).

    Kanter made two jumpers. Airballed one and barely hit iron on second missed jumper. Faried and Koufos where getting rebounds vs him not vs versa. Kanter got most if his stats in 4quarter when game was out of reach playing vs Mozgov mainly. Not to take away from Kanters game as he played best game of the season so far and really impressed me with his much quicker step then last year for example, but Koufos stats are more impressive as they were collected vs starters during time when Denver put game out of reach.
    And it is silly for some people here to say that Kanter is 100X better then Koufos when it is absolutely not true. He may have better potential but at this point of their career Kosta is better and it is not even arguable. Stats, head to head meetings, whatever you look at - so far everything supports that.

    And there's the problem. No defense from Jefferson and Kanter only gets 6 minutes.

    Either fire Ty or have Lindsey save us by making a trade. This is %$#@^&* ridiculous.

    They were collected vs. Jefferson, who never woke up from his pre-game nap.
