Paul Millsap is going to be traded, and he knows it. He has been seriously disconnected the last few games and the only reason I can think of is he knows he is the odd man out in our front court. There was only one person on the court tonight not covered in sweat by the 3 minute mark in the 3rd quarter, and it was Paul. When Millsap is the only player on the court not working up a sweat, you know something is off.
Utah, like every other good team, needs a go to scorer in the post, and that man is Big Al. While Millsap CAN create a shot in the post, he is not very consistent. How many times has our offense stalled, and we go to Big Al for a must have bucket? He is the only player on our team who can create his own shot, and convert it more often than not. Yes his lack of defense hurts, but Sap has equal limitations due to his lack of size.
I hate to say it. I LOVE Millsap, we all do. But the writing is on the wall, Millsap is gone.
