Default Al Jefferson: THE MAN OR THE MYTH?

If we keep building around him; is it going to pay dividends? I'm not sure if he doesn't trust his teammates or he just has tunnel vision and doesn't look around. He gets stripped a lot if help defense comes by. He doesn't pass the ball a whole lot and he doesn't come out of the post to contest gaurd/forward jump shots.

If the triangle is based off of great passers, then how does Al fit in? Well, he's a great post scorer and still young enough to develop his jump shot over the summer and get his strength back up to where it was at before. Then he won't get man handled in the post by the bigger guys in the league.

I love the guy's game and he has been beasting the past few games. I think it's great that you can throw it in there anytime and draw a double, but he has to understand when to score and when to pass. Although, we don't have good shooters either. Do you think we should keep shopping Al? Is he the man or the myth? I would let it pan out, but it seems like Kahn and Rambis are trying to pull the trigger on a deal. They probably think that there isn't enough time left if we don't win now, because they're not making money as it is.

I know if Al is still a T-wolf next season he will be beasting it up BIG TIME and if we do trade him; whoever gets him will probably be headed for the playoffs.

I think there's more important things to figure out than how to get Al 20/10 every night. That is a sure thing. We can plug Al into the equation anytime we want. Plus, this DUI gives us more reason to shorten his minutes a little bit. We know we're not getting a playoff spot. He could be hurt too? It doesn't hurt to let him heal up at the end of the season either, considering his injury last season. Maybe he can come out playing like fire next season injury free and fully revitalized.

should have gone over marcus camby.

even though dalembert sucks he would compliment jefferson well too.

but camby will be the better fit. al attracks double teams and camby can shoot those 18 footers and is a good help defender too ....

dont gamble much on youngs. if id pick a young id go for favors. and whiteside.

time for rubio to be traded. you need a guy like evan turner.

if only mchale didnt trade roy for randy foye...

roy + jefferson = playoffs for the wolves again.

and if you guys dont get turner this draft. wesley johnson is good but he is just like an upgrade over corey brewer but corey brewer is starting to come to his own slowly but surely .. so dont waste it..

More power to him if he can perform in Utah; he's always been an upright citizen and team player while in Minny.
