Good for Ostertag - Sounds like he puts more effort into his cakes than he ever
did in basketball.
'"It's just a matter of getting back into shape," he told the Republic. "I can
still play."'Ostertag had good confident...but had him ever been
into shape during his career??? Everyone knew for years he needed to get into
shape, but it never happens.
Please fans and Jerry let the young man play this summer for his home team, and
if he comes to camp this year out of shape and not ready th contribute find
another team for him to bag on. But it is only natural for him to want to be a
member of his countries team. These summer leagues really don't serve any
purpose other than an introduction into that teams playing philosiphies. As for
conditioning that has to be done primarily outside of summer leagues(ala
Brewer). Fees knows our system and what is wanted from him, now it's up to him
to grab the opportunity. If he doesn't we aren't out much because we have
Milsap, Okur and Koufus to turn to and possible trades and free agents can
change this teams future.
I say Fez spokesman is a PR blitz propoganda campaign. I agree with many that
would like to see him, but man he does look goofy and prone to stupid mistakes
and fouls at times. More experience, consistency and to show he belongs on the
court may earn more respect from the refs.Ostertag for those that
bag, yeah he is perfect NOOO? At least I could trust his knowledge and
willingness to play solid one and one d versus most centers and provides a
presence. I do not have doubt at 36 and usually injury free I would trust him
and take him Over Coliins in a minute.Unlike most, if the Jazz
resigned him I would support it. However, with Kos, Fez and Okur still here no
This sounds somewhat optimistic and this season might be the last chance for
Fesenko in the NBA. The Jazz have always liked big stiffs that don't do much of
anything other than block shots and rebound like Mark Eaton, James Donaldson,
and Ostertag. Add the fact that Boozer, Okur, and/or Millsap might not be back
and you would think Fesenko could get some playing time if he has a pulse.Either way it gives me hope that the Jazz might actually make some
changes as far as getting rid of Collins, Knight, Harpring, Korver, and either
Okur or Boozer, not because they really want to but because they just can't
afford to keep the same mediocre veteran team together. I say good riddance to
any of these guys that don't return. Trade AK too, if you can.
With the Jazz going to Orlando, Fesenko can do summer league and still play for
Ukraine. I hope that's what he does, because it will really help him.Peace out from the Jazz Oracle.
Fes Collins Knight they are all just a waste of money money i dont know how much
each gets paid put lets say knight gets 1 million collins gets 400 thousand and
fes get 770 thousand with their contracts combined it equals 2.1 million which
you could use just to get a pretty decent back up guy instead of three of having
three guys who hurt the team more than help
hers the pain;Collins =2,074,302Harpring= 6.0 milKnight= 2.0
milMiles= 3.7 milBoozer= 11.26 mil and 12.3 if he reups
ouch!!!!!!!!!!!thats about 25 million.all are dead weightFez
is a bargain @ 870,000 if they can get him to play.Milsap will get a good
contract. with money left over, if they get rid of dead wood.excellent
free agents available.Gordon,Miller,Odom,Arias to mention a couple.Ostertag would play for 750,000 andeven out of shape block more shots than
Collins and Harpring together.Fill the middle move Okur to the 4 spot then shore
up 2 and three spots.Tons of point guards available for cheap price.
