    You mean the ball moves better when we ran the flex properly with Sloan?

    As much as Al is pissing me off I'm almost longing for the days of Boozer.

    Until I remember Boozer's "defense" which makes Al look like the reincarnation of Bill Russell.

    Chicago, 2012: 19-13
    Utah: 18-18
    Chicago with Boozer: 2011: 50-16
    Jazz with Jefferson: 2011: 36-30
    Chicago 2010: 62-20
    Utah 2010 (with Jefferson and Williams, an elite pg): 39-43
    Chicago (with Rose) - 41-41
    Utah - 53-29

    Um. Boozer is LIGHT YEARS ahead of Al. It's not even close. Boozer has won EVERYWHERE he has been, Al had NEVER won anything of any significance.

    If you were a GM and chose AL of Boozer, you would be fired very quickly. If Boozer had a Favors or Ostertag playing next to him we would be pining for more statues for him and Deron and Sloan would still be drooling on our sideline.

    Al is a terrible player, and a terrible on court teammate. He is Stephon Marbury.

    When we changed Boozer for Jefferson we were -14 wins.

    When Chicago picked up Boozer they picked up 21 wins.

    This seriously, he was the best player on a WCF team.

    Boozer was very good on that team, but i think D-will was the best player on that team

    I definitely give Boozer the edge for the 06-07 season, but the next year D-will got the edge.

    Jefferson worked with Sloan for a couple months.

    He still held the ball way more than Boozer.

    Boozer is getting paid 47 mil this season through the next two. Hard to imagine some of you would rather take that on than watch AJ another day, but there it is right in front of me.

    at least the team offense flowed much better with booz. he realized that the jazz were more dangerous when the ball was moving, so it didn't stick to his hands for half the shot clock.

    jefferson is clearly better as an on-ball post defender. both guys are laughable at help D.

    boozer was a better passer out of the post. also better at getting hurt.

    Don't forget that since Al has been here he had played almost every game for us.

    Boozer on the other hand was missing games left, right and center. What I don't like about Boozer is he's not a real team player. Booze only cares about 1 thing and it's Booze.Inc

    The one thing that sticks out about both of them is that they make a lot of money to play one side of the court. Boozer is significantly better at jump shots, using the left hand, interior passing, rebounding anything that touches his hands, and is generally more explosive, whatever that's worth. Jefferson is the best pump fake artist in the history of b-ball, and compliments that with a nice array of short push shots, spin moves, and up and under moves, so I give him the edge as a post up player. Boozer is light years ahead of AL in passing and transition offense. Al has one speed, slow. Both make decent teammates from the standpoint of optimism, and vocally supportive of teammates. Both players are historically bad on help defense, and neither one consistently challenges shots, but I'm giving the overall edge to Jefferson defensively. SO, if I had to choose today, I'd pick Jefferson because he makes less, and comes off the books in 4 months. Then, I'd play Favors 35 minutes a game, and give Al scraps until he learned to give a %# on helping his team on defense. Honestly, for Corbin, and because of Utah's personnel, I believe our record with Boozer instead of Jefferson would be 10+ wins better. In my opinion, losing Jefferson immediately makes Utah better because of simple addition by subtraction. If somehow Brandy Foye could be gone, too, even Corbin wouldn't be able to prevent the Jazz from winning better than 50% of their games. I imagine a world where Burks, Hayward, Favors, Millsap, and Tinsley (gasp), hey he's way better than Earl Wasting (course, so am I), and I hope someday that dream becomes a reality, with or without Ty in it ( I prefer without).

    Please, for the sake of everyone here, learn how to use spaces and paragraphs. I almost had to get my reading glasses out to read your post.

    Otherwise there's some good stuff in there.

    I would rather have Jefferson over Boozer. Though this question is like asking 'Who would you rather marry - Susan Boyle or Rosanne Barr?'

    ****ing THANK YOU. I love how people have seemed to forget that Sloan was around when Jefferson came here (and Al completely botched the sets). I guess it's because Sloan bounced shortly after (and that it was totally a complete and utter coincidence).
