I know many on this site can’t get Al Jefferson out of town quick enough. I have always tried to give Al the benefit of the doubt and I think he does some good stuff for this team. However, I have some serious concerns with recent postgame comments and his overall leadership and attitude.
After a recent loss to OKC, he said: ”I don’t feel bad at all about this loss. I think we did a great job against all odds.”
And after last night’s loss to Indiana: “Once I get 0-for-5, 0-for-6, my mind just kind of goes. ”
I have serious issues with both these comments and it makes it hard for me to continue to give him the benefit of the doubt. He is supposed to be the leader of the team, but in those two comments he tells me that he’s 1) ok with some losses and 2) he isn’t mentally in it if he starts bad.
These are not characteristics of someone that is a leader, is gritty, and determined. We need a leader on this team and Al is not it. I am not thrilled with these post game comments/attitudes and I’m sure the front office doesn’t care for it either. Might be time for Jazz FO to make the move.
