Ostertag was undermotivated and overpaid,
but, he really did help the defense a lot.
A lot more than anyone wanted to admit, just because he was so easy to dislike.
Ostertag for Memo, I think on that particular team it would be similar. More offense, less defense. If that is what we needed to beat Jordan, then I like it. I still can't put my finger on exactly what happened (other than Dick Bavetta waiving off our 3, and giving the nod to Kerr's 3, to come to a grand total of 6 swing points on undisputibly-by-review bad calls.
Hornacek on this year's team would be excellent. The spread on the floor would be insane. I Agree, that would take home a title this year.
I don't know, hard decision... I too think Tag played into the Jazz's defense alot more than people want to admit. One player I would trade though which I think would be an awesome team is trade Russle for Okur
Eisley/Shandon Anderson or ????
Tag, Okur when needed
I'll take Hornie for today's team. Ostertag actually was a great fit for the Jazz back then; the problem was that they had to compete against a juggernaut of a team. Memo wouldn't have won it for them.
Hornacek on today's team would be a dream come true. Don't even get me waxing about the possibilities...

Karl Malone not showing up and playing the worst ball of his life was the # 1 reason. Sloan getting thoroughly outcoached was the # 2 reason.
Who Sloan? Malone? You have to think your teams players and coaches are better than everyone else's to be a fan? In NY it's normal for fans to not agree with everything their team does. In Philly they've booed future HOFers from their own teams.
