Default Boozer>Millsap

I'm sorry. Okay? Boozer is better, he's a championship piece no matter how much we rip on his D, and he'll come back if we just pay him.

If we pay him we'll be over the tax, says the Jazz organization. Yeah, so what. If you're going to sign Millsap and trade away Boozer YOU'RE STILL GOING TO PAY THE TAX. If we're going to go over the tax this year, why don't we make it a good one. Christ!

I don't think Larry Miller would have done this. He's emotionally attached to players and has a sense of loyalty, but he isn't absolutely retarded.

Championship piece? They got blown out in the first round by a not that impressive champion.

They won't pay the tax.

Choosing Milsap over Boozer is retarded? LOL!

Boozer was magnificent in the series.

They have to.

Explain your reasoning for lol'ing. Millsap is a hustle player, not someone you can consistently rely on. Boozer is a 20/10 guy, no doubt.

Boozer is better.

Boozer has more potential he will never tap, and Millsap will tap a greater ratio of his own potential than Boozer, but the end of the line is Boozer>Millsap. Some people can't stand guys that don't max out their abilities, and so go with Millsap. But, in direct comparision, potentials aside, Boozer is better.

But, is Boozer a max deal better?

Who cares what he's doing at the offensive end of he's giving it up at the other?

If they're over the threshhold which they won't be. Jazz are all about the business. Winning isn't foremost in their minds.

He was the one person they consistently counted on last year. He was their MVP. They might have Blake Griffin if it wasn't for his play night in and night out.

That's played what one full season(?) and plays matador D.

Better post up and pick and roll guy. That's it.

Exactly! Boozer is the same player now as when they got him while Milsap continues to improve.

He hasn't been worth what they pay him now. He'd have to actually be on the floor. Milsap for less than 9 million is a bargain.

Looks like the Jazz are about to make a huge mistake to match Millsap's offer and trade Boozer.

It's going to be a hard few years.

A lot more than Luigi thought they could low ball him for but a lot less than he'd get next year. A lot less than Okur too.

See what really doesn't make sense is they are willing to pay for Okur for the next couple years, and Millsap for the next couple years, but the best of the three. Well, they just need to trade him!

13 million for an injury prone low post pick and roll only guy sure you trade him when you can have a more com[plete player for only 8 million a year and he might actually be on the floor. Why you keep and give a raise to the loafing and limited Okur is beyond me though,

Millsap is not a more complete player, neither is Okur.

Sure he is. He plays all aspects of the game not just a couple like Boozer and Okur.

Default Re: Boozer>Millsap

yeah.... I think anybody who watched boozer in 07 when he wasn't injured knows that. But hes injured to often. Either way I'd take boozer over Millsap, but Millsap still has some room to grow, so I hope he does.
