A Few Thoughts

A few thoughts after this weekend's games:
  • Kosta is for real.  Did anyone catch the end of the Toronto game?  Granted it was garbage time, but in six minutes of action he put in a few nice turnaround jumpers, grabbed some boards and threw one down.  He finished with 10 points on 5-5 shooting and also hustled, which you know Jerry loves.   He's still a rookie so he's going to have rough patches here and there, but watch out for him!
  • I for one am going to be sad to see Millsap go back to the bench upon Boozer's return.  17 and 11 over the last few weeks. . .those are great numbers.  I think we now officially have a logjam at power forward and that ain't a bad thing considering one of the guys has a foot out the door already.
  • I don't think Korver or Almond are ever going to be great fits on the Jazz as the team is currently constituted.  Even with all of the injuries, neither has really stepped up to the plate and there's a lot of competition already at those spots.  Korver knocks down a few threes here and there and is nice to have around to finish off close games at the line, but he makes as much as Brewer and Miles combined and is half as valuable as either.  
Note: The picture above doesn't really have anything to do with the post, I just found it as I was writing it and was amazed at the "surprised-in-a-happy-way" look on Jerry's face.  I think Memo is rubbing his back with his right hand. . .
