Milsap

I see a lot of posts and discussion about the lineup - who's starting at what. Considering Okur's injury, it seems to be a lock for the first half of the season

I see Milsap becoming a 3.5.   Many will disagree, but consider his skill development over the years.  His expanding ability to put the ball on the floor and the extension of his range have been tremendous.   He's able to face the hoop from 15-16 feet and (without a pump-fake) get to the hoop.  Imagine what happens when he becomes lock solid at 18 feet and mixes in some head fakes to keep people honest.  He's becoming a better version of Jerome Kersey.

I'm looking forward to seeing how opposing teams deal with both Kirilenko and Milsap playing at the forward spots.  Frankly the lineup flexibility that the Jazz are going to have is exciting to look forward to.  It's going to be fun to watch some great team basketball. Versatile weapons with Deron Williams as distributor. Let's hope Raja Bell is back to form and Hayward can be an effective option as a long SG? . Good defense and %40 3-pt will easily replace what Korver and Mathews provided.

So long to Boozer and the frustration of watching games where he goes 20-10 while being the 3rd best player on the team.
