*Before I get crucified by all of you, let me start off by telling you that I am a huge Paul Millsap fan. I’ve been watching Jazz basketball almost all of my life, for about the past 14 years or so, and I can say that he is probably my all-time 3rd favorite Utah player, so saying this is really really hard.
This season is done. I don’t even want to talk about it anymore. Lets talk about the future….
We have an overload of PF’s on this team. Al Jefferson is not a Center (Which explains a big part of the reason why we struggle with rebounding most of the time.) He is a Power Forward along with Favors and Evans. The main problem with this team is our lack of talented, better yet, competent players at the 2 and 3 spots. Why is it that? Because all of our talent is stuck in the same pool. That’s whats wrong with this team, plain and simple!
Now when I examine the problem, and I try to think of a solution, the only thing I can come up with is trading one of our men at the 4. But, who is it going to be? Al Jefferson who, by his play as of late, seems like he can become an all-star in the future? The second coming himself, who we are all putting our faith in to become the next big thing, Derrick Favors? No, I don’t see either of those two are leaving anytime soon.
I really hate to say this, but I think that the only way the Jazz can make progress this off-season is by trading Paul. I love watching the guy play, but we are just too loaded at Power Forward. Great teams have a balance of good players at different positions, and I want the Jazz to be a great team! We’re never going to get anywhere with so many 4’s
Keeping Millsap may just handicap our possibilities of becoming great soon. It’s nothing personal, I wish he could stay forever, but this is what would be best for the team. Jazz fan first, Millsap second.
