The title kind of speaks for itself. Perhaps reading this link will give you a clue why. Or my rant and rave (another one and oh so soon) might give you an idea. I just read ,according to this wonderful ESPN link, that Larry Miller, the owner of the Jazz, said that Andrei Kirilenko is a top 10 player in the league. I don't know what kinda crack is available on the mean streets of SLC but what was Larry Miller on? That or the report that apparently Kirilenko wants more praise from Jerry Sloan? Jerry Sloan didn't kiss Stockton and Malone's ass (He also didn't have to; they were reportedly so brutal on their teammates that Sloan never instituted a fining system--the only team in the NBA to not do so). Kirilenko wants more praise? What a dumbass.
I'm going to say this once and for all. You trade a top 3 rotation player for that jackass and you will regret it. Period end of story. I don't care if he was fantasy nutting all over yourself player of the year 3 years ago. He isn't that now. Boozer, and particularily Williams, have made him so much of a role player that he's anxious about the fact that nobody considers him important anymore. So I ask who's the bigger sucker? The owner who claims that said player is a top ten in the league? Or the player who actually believes it?
